Review- The One by Kiera Cass

SPOILER WARNING: This review contains major spoilers. 

Synopsis: The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.

“Maxon, some of those marks are on your back so they wouldn’t be on mine, and I love you for them.”

He stopped breathing for a second. “What did you say?”

I smiled. “I love you.”

“One more time, please? I just—”

I took his face in both of my hands. “Maxon Schreave, I love you. I love you.”

“And I love you, America Singer. With all that I am, I love you.”
―The One

15844362My Review: Before I begin, How gorgeous is that cover? The Selection Series has the most beautiful covers I have ever seen! Now, I’m sorry that I’m not doing theses reviews in order. This book is still fresh in my mind so I thought I would write it now. The One is the 3rd and last book of The Selection Series. Who will America choose? Prince Maxon or Aspen? I am definitely Team Maxon #sorrynotsorry

Even though I can find America to be quite annoying at times,(especially in The Elite), she is a strong and brave character that always stick by her beliefs. It annoyed me so much how she would keep on going back and forth between Maxon and Aspen. Luckily, this book didn’t have much of that.

I love Maxon, he is so sweet and chivalrous *swoon*. I wish we could have a whole book on his point of view. He does get a temper at times, but that’s what makes him more…human. Everybody has a flaw. I love his relationship with America

My feelings towards Aspen were pretty neutral. I didn’t love him, but I didn’t hate him either.I just didn’t think that he was right for America. I really liked the fact that he and Lucy got together.

The ending to me seemed very rushed. It was so intense when Maxon found out about Aspen. I get that he was upset with her, but it was so strange to hear him be so…mean. Then the rebels came in and the whole situation just got more confusing. I can’t believe Celeste died! I was just starting to like her 😦 It was also really sad how the Queen died… I couldn’t care less about the King though #sorrynotsorry. Even though it was such a cliche, it was so romantic when Maxon jumped in front of a bullet for America❤.But then after they found out they were both okay, he proposed to her? What? Like I knew this was going to happen and hey, I’m not complaining, but what about everything that happened earlier.  I feel like the situation could have been resolved better.



My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (5/5)

Let me know in the comments if you have read this book and what your thoughts on it are♡ Are you team Maxon or team Aspen?

Signing off, Ash xx

  1. I agree with you so much. The end was so rushed, I didn’t really understand it at all. It irritated me immensely that America could not choose between Aspen and Maxon and she kept floating in between. The whole time I loved Maxon, I would have chosen Maxon a hundred times over, I did not like Aspen. There was something annoying about Aspen that I couldn’t get over. Great review!
