Four by Veronica Roth

About the Book
Fans of the Divergent trilogy by #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories plus three additional scenes from Divergent, all told from Tobias's point of view. This collection also makes a great pick for fans of the blockbuster movies who want to delve deeper into the character played by Theo James.
Readers first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Readers will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection. When read together, these long narrative pieces illuminate the defining moments in Tobias's life. The first three pieces in this volume—"The Transfer," "The Initiate," and "The Son"—follow Tobias's transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, "The Traitor," runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving readers a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty—and love—that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior.

Also includes three additional scenes from Divergent, told from Tobias's point of view!

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed the Divergent series but for the most part we only got Tris's side of the story. When I heard that the author was planning to release some of Tobias's point of view I thought it was genius and couldn't wait to read them! I did end up waiting until they were all put together as a hard copy before reading it. And it was worth the wait! It was fun to see Tobias's first days as Dauntless and to get his thoughts during some key Divergent scenes! In short if you love this series and this hero then I highly recommend you read this book!
