Product Description


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

There are four short main stories; The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son and The Traitor in this book which run just before Divergent and alongside Divergent told from Four's point of view so if you are wondering when you can read these stories without ruining the main trilogy of books for yourself then you will be fine to read this book once you have finished reading Divergent.
There are also three very short stories at the end of this book too; "First Jumper - Tris!", "Careful Tris" and "You Look Good, Tris" which are a few pages long each but are a nice addition to the book and again we get to see Four's point of view in a few of the parts from Divergent.
I would have preferred to have read this book straight after Divergent if I had known it could be read then but I didn't and read this after the final book Allegiant. I would definitely recommend reading it earlier as it does add to the content of Divergent and I was a bit disappointed with the ending of Allegiant so I feel the shine was taken off this set of mini stories for me by the time I read it but I love the character Four and these stories are really interesting to read.

The Transfer tells the story of Four's own decision to leave Abnegation and you will already know the reasons why if you have read Divergent but it is really interesting to see how it all actually played out for Four and get a more in depth insight into what his life was like before Dauntless along with his own thoughts and feelings. We also meet Amar and learn how Four was given the name Four by him. A good short story and a nice insight in Four's life before Dauntless and Tris.

The Initiate tells the story of Four's own initiation into Dauntless and how the initiation process was before it was changed when Tris joins Dauntless later on.

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.

Tobias Eaton is a young man left with his father after his mother tragically dies, or at least that is the story told by the Abnegation elite and one that he believes. It doesn’t help him deal with the abusive father, one who needs control in all aspects of his life and that includes his divergent son.
Unable to cope with the thought of continuing to live with his father when he has the chance to escape, he grabs it with both hands and runs into the changing faction of Dauntless. Flying threw his initiation, after all what is pain to someone who has grown up with it, he is offered the role of leader. Initially he believes he can make a difference but soon realises that he is a simple pawn and quickly withdraws.

Then of course he meets Tris and his world is changed forever.

The book is a collection of not stories as such but scenes in Four’s life. From why he left Abnegation, how he became a teacher of the initiates and how he real felt about Tris. As with all people who read this, you already know the stories but it is interesting. One of his fears where he shoots an innocent, I thought his fear stemmed from the fear of following orders and this was not the case. It was a new side to him.

As with the initial series I am not a great lover of the style of writing. It seems immature at times and I wanted more, but as with the first two books, it caught my interest. I can see why she first wrote it from Four’s point of view before Tris became her main focus.
