Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.There is no doubt that Four is my favorite character in the Divergent series. I have such a HUGE crush on him, especially after Theo James played him in the movies. I don't normally read novellas, but one of my friends had picked up the collection and let me borrow it.
Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—THE TRANSFER, THE INITIATE, THE SON, and THE TRAITOR—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.
- I loved having all of the novellas together. I think that reading them one at a time would have felt incomplete. I enjoyed being able to go from one story to the next immediately.
- Learning more about Four, especially his time before Dauntless and during his initiation was really interesting. I loved seeing him struggle, making friends and trying to figure out how to stand up for what he believed in.
- These collections definitely made me hate Eric even more! Argh, he was just so stinking full of himself.
- One of my favorite parts of the story was when Tobias went on his first date, it was hilarious to see him use his normal lack of tact and stolidness.
- Seeing Tris's fall from Tobias's POV was awesome. I love how he was just kinda stunned. In Divergent it seems like he was so much more in control.
- I guess there isn't really anything wrong. I know that Veronica started writing more from Tobias's POV, and I kinda wish that she would have done more with that, especially before the third book.
