To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The first book was great for sure but then the second one was less interesting and the 3rd got very close to boring. I was also a bit disappointed by the end but I guess that’s just my personal choice. I love the idea behind the story but I think the 2 and 3 were missing a bit of depth. Overall a good read but if I had to read it again i’ll read up to maybe half of the 2nd book.
I guess it inevitable - I was drawn to the fascinating social system of "Divergent", so the next two books didn't have that new exploration feeling. To be sure, you learn more about the social system and even more about the world "beyond the wall" and it is very well done. Also, the author has definite goals in mind that require three books, and she achieves them, so it does hang together well. The central theme for the characters is still a teenage love story, which is not my all-time favorite. To be fair, teenage love stories can range from the low( Twilight) to the incredible ( Romeo and Juliet). This is closer to R & J than Twilight. All in all a good read. it just felt to me it started off at full bore and never reached that level again.
A great series - Books 1 + 2 were really well done, amazing characters, interesting world, great plot twists. Amazing and I would give 4-5 starts for each. Book 3 killed it for me - starting with the change in point of view. Didn't read "Four" after the disappointment of Book 3.
es fehlen mehrer duzend Seiten (117-148) im dritten Band! Auch nach einer Ersatzlieferung fehlen sie immer noch. Deshalb nur die 3 Sterne. Scheinbar gibt es bei amazon nur "beschädigte" Ware. Also lieber die einzelnen Bücher kaufen.
Insgesamt können hier für die Trilogie drei Sterne vergeben werden weil die Idee echt interessant ist und der erste Band auch recht spannend. Leider verliert die Geschichte danach zunehmend an Anziehungskraft, die Hauptakteurin wird zeitweise entwas unsymphatisch und die Romanze von Tris und Four ist nicht sonderlich fesselnd. Fazit: Guter Anfang, mäßiges Ende, unverständlicher Hype um die drei Bücher.
