Book Description

2 July 2015

Fans of the Divergent series by No. 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 told from Tobias Eaton’s point of view.

DIVERGENT – a major motion picture in 2014.

Readers first encountered Tobias Eaton 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 Eaton'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.

Exclusive scenes included!

Praise for Divergent:

“The next big thing.” (Rolling Stone )

“If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for DIVERGENT! Trust us on this—this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you’re gonna be one lonely soul.” ( )

“A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away” – Publishers Weekly

“A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

“DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future.” James Dashner, author of ‘The Maze Runner

I quite enjoyed this book, the 4 stories about Four. We see a bit of Four before the choosing ceremony and what impact the initiate period for him was. But also not really thinking about it when you read the first book Divergent – some of the events that has happened, Four had a massive hand in it. I can’t tell you exactly what he did or when as I don’t want to spoil things. But it did gave me more appreciation for Four then I already had.
It also makes sense why his initiates were a bit ‘out of control’ and how the rule came in place to fight for your top spot otherwise you will be ‘factionless’. Also it became clear that Jeanine was in on this plot for a very long time and that Tris and Tobias were just ‘unlucky’ or ‘lucky’ to be in the middle of the big reveal.

The relationship with his father and mother and how the rivalry existed between him and Eric, how he sees Tris through his eyes I loved it!

Veronica has done a great job in creating this world for Four, just what I was after and I know I might be in the minority here – but I really enjoyed his perspective on things.

I know it is a short review – but the book is quite short, but I can recommend this book to read after you’ve read the Divergent Trilogy or maybe just after Divergent.

Great stories. It was nice to read stories from 4's perspective. The only reason I could not give this 5 stars is because, in Roth's own acknowledgment page, her writing is better through Tris' voice.

Anybody who has read Divergent would know why 4 needed to leave the Abnegation, his trials through Dauntless, to making becoming the legend that is 4. The second, third and fourth story add to work well along side the Divergent book. They show 4's own investigation into the Dauntless conspiracy.

The last 3 stories are passages from Divergent rewritten from 4's perspective, they are good, i did like the way way 4 tries to emulate his mentor with the new initiatives. Also the way he puts on a face on for the students but shakes on the inside after a confrontation. Great book a touch below Divergent but still great and and a good compliment to the first book.

As a Divergent-fan, it's hard to be objective when reviewing this book, but here goes.
Veronica Roth has done yet another truly excellent job with this the fourth book in the series. It comprises a collection of several short stories tying up a few loose ends in the first thre books and building a fascinating 'side plot', from Four's viewpoint, of the early part of the trilogy.
The concept of the five-faction Divergent World is an incredible feat of imagination - no wonder it won the awards it did.
Veronica Roths writing style makes it hard to put her books down once you start and this 'final' installment is no exception.
Worth every penny.
Sadly it appears though that, according to the author, there will be no further books in the series, such a shame when there would be so much plot-potential in the interaction between the various 'walled cities' created by the genetic scientists, including the possibility of there being another Tris in one of them ???
In conclusion, be brave and buy this book (and the other three). It will open your eyes AND your mind

5.0 out of 5 stars pure brilliance 17 Aug 2014

This book immerses your being into the book so much so as a reader you finally feel like you understand four as a character. You finally learn his perspective and understand and his complexities. After reading all the divergent series, I was so happy to read this, especially knowing the ending to the books. I especially loved being taken back to understand what made four, four and reading how the actions of Marcus really affected him to make him become dauntless, also to how he first felt seeing tris, how raw he felt and it being his viewpoint, this macho man to be scared of falling.
This book is superb and anyone who loved the divergent novels, must read this just to get that last glimpse of hope and happiness. This book was the first book I brought in years. It's simple, a must read. Veronica Roth, you are a genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. GIVE ME MORE! *Spoilers* 15 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book! After binge reading the trilogy in a matter of days I had to go and buy this.
I was intrigued to get a bit of background on Tobias as I loved his character in the trilogy. I can't say I was disappointed or even remotely let down. Although quite short the stories go into so much detail about Tobias and you really get a feel for his view on things. The one small, minuscule issue I had was that I really wanted to read more about his side of the story of the Divergent trilogy such as what he's going through when he argues with Tris throughout Insurgent. For me I need more of an insight to his relationship with Tris.
I really want to read from Tobias' perspective further. Maybe Veronia can write a second book on Tobias including what happens later in his life?

This collection answer any questions about Four's past and his feeling from the divergent series. It explores Four's journey from Abnegation to Dauntless and his doubts about the Erudites. It's a brilliant plot and ties in perfectly with the original series.

Despite this, I wasn't as captivated as I was with the original. This may be because it's written through the eyes of someone else or because the stories are a lot shorter than before.

Still, I'd recommended it to any Divergent fan. And if this is your first time reading about Four, Tris and divergents I suggest you read the original series first.
