Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divergent (Broschiert)
I've immediately bought this book after it was praised as new Hunger Games, but honestly i should have known this wasn't true.
The characters are boring and plain. I could't bring myself to feel any sympathy for any of 'em. Especially Tris and Four are horribly written characters. Four hasn't got any kind of personality, his only purpose in the novel is to be Tris lover. And there is absolutely no reason to why he likes Tris. He seems to care for her from the start of the novel, but there is no reason for that at all, especially since she wasn't standing out nor had they met before. but he still seemed to have cared for her immediately and tried to protect her from everything.
And the only thing I am going to say about Tris is that she is the most annoying and dislikeable character I've read about. Particularly *spoilers* in the end of the novel where she decides she rather dies for Four(who would most likely have been killed afterwards anyways), than saving her brother, hundreds of other people and fulfill the cause her parents died for. THIS behavior isn't brave, being brave is to make sacrifices, and the life of your lover( you barely knew) is nothing compared to the life of hundreds of innocent people.
But the ending was ridiculous anyway. Ifyou want to know more you should definitely read this http://www.amazon.de/review/RLXANFI4IJ12B/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=0062084321&nodeID=52044011&store=books-intl-de review.
Also the way this world is built makes no sense. Why would people actually cope with the Factions and change there whole life and leave their families and friends. There must have been some rebels, atleast the Factionless should have tried to pull of a revolution, but again NOPE. Rather make them live in poverty and make 'em cope with their awful lives, so Tris and Four can make out a little bit more.
Also Tris first goal seemed to be part of the system and to have a nice job in her Faction, then her next goal seems to be to defeat the Erudite. Why just that? Why not help the Factionless and suppress the complete system? Why not give people their choices and family back? Why shouldn't everybody try to be brave, smart, nice, honest, selfless and creative, instead of just being honest or smart?

Did you read the book?
I mean "his only purpose in the novel is to be Tris love" - that's rubbish.
Tris needs someone on her side otherwise the book wouldn't be so reliable (If she'd manage this all alone).
And Divergent is a book for girls between the age 14-18 I think. And girls in this age identify with the main character of a book. So they like if this character has a nice sweet boy on her side.
Have you ever heard about love at first sight? That's what girls in this age love too. And I think it isn't unreal that Tobias is in love with Tris. She is small but she is really brave. For example when she helped Al and Tobias cuts her ear. I think that was pretty brave.
And that's just a book. Is Legend from Marie Lu more real? Or the people from Panem: They let their children die in these games without saying anything. And they need so unbelievable long to rebel. I think Divergent isn't more unreal! I mean it's a nice idea that everyone is allowed to choose his own way to live his life, or?
And I say it again: It's a just book. Ms Roth couldn't write a book about the future Chicago if everything would be fair and ordinary. I mean that wouldn't be a dystopia and no one would buy it, would you?
Tris is 16 years old. It wouldn't be real (and it seems like you need reality in a book) if she'd plan to abolish the whole system. She-is-just-a-girl!
I mean if you don't like the president you wouldn't abolish the whole system in your country. You'd try to find your place and make the best of it, or?
I think you were just in a bad mood of this book and that's a pity 'cause it's just a great dystopia.
Maybe you'll read this. If you don't understand anything: I'm from Germany and English isn't my first language. Just ask I won't bite.

"And I say it again: It's a just book. Ms Roth couldn't write a book about the future Chicago if everything would be fair and ordinary. I mean that wouldn't be a dystopia and no one would buy it, would you?"
It being "just a book" doesn't change the fact that it is illogical and incoherent. The problem with Veronica Roth' dytopia is that it doesn't make much sense, doesn't feel real and isn't explained. Of course it is a more thrilling read if you don't know what lead to this dystopia right from the start but there are ways to write such a story to give you the feeling that there actually is a backstory, one that is thought through and makes sense.
I'm happy for you that you enjoyed this book but you just can't expect everyone to agree with you. Maybe I'm asking too much from a book that is actually meant for teenagers but I was really bothered by the lack of background, explanation and logic. The whole faction thing seemed really poorly developed to me and Tris' divergence as well. The whole time I was thinking that you just can't put people into groups like that and that the natural state actually had to be divergent because no one is just brave or just honest - you can't tell me that all those people are so narrowminded that they can be sorted into specific groups that easily.
Also, why are many of the Erudite just ruthless robots who are incabable of feelings? What has risking your life for no apparent reason to do with being brave? And why [SPOILER]did Tris want to be killed by Four instead of killing him and saving her family and all the other people? That wasn't brave. It would have been brave to sacrifice the life of someone you care about, no matter how much pain it brings you, when you know that it is the only way to save everyone else's life. And her somehow magically waking him up from the simulation was simply poorly written.[/SPOILER]
It wasn't a horrible book but it is definitely not well-thought-out and I'm not sure if I'll want to read the rest of the trilogy.
