Personally, I would choose Al. Even for the things Al did, other people never seemed to pay attention to how Al was coping. Even Tris ignored him when he was crying himself to sleep. I know if I was thrown into a new place to live, without my parents, with men like Eric as leaders and day after day of pushing your body to its absolute physical and mental limit, I would not be holding up very well. Tris was exceedingly tough, but others, like Al, were not and so they found it difficult to put on a brave face and get on with it.
It may just be that it is not in the Dauntless faction to help the weaker members or look for signs of people not coping, or maybe it was Eric's leadership. Either way, I think Al should not be hated as a character, nor should he be loved for what he did.
What do you think? Do you agree with me about Al, or see him from an entirely different perspective? And which characters do you think should be given more credit?
SPOILER FOR ALLEGIANT!! While I didn't bat an eyelash when Tris died, I may have shed a tear or two for Uriah. *sniffles*
