Book Review: Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth

AUTHOR: Veronica Roth
PUBLISHED: July 8, 2014
PUBLISHER: Harper Collins
PAGES: 208
SOURCE: Bought
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.

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.

I really enjoyed the Divergent series, and who am I kidding I loved Four so to have a book with collections from his perspective is awesome. We get to go back two years before Tris, before he became Four.

The Transfer shows us who Tobias Eaton from Abnegation was, and why he chose Dauntless as the faction he felt he could belong to. I have always loved Four and how strong he was and how he has  this vulnerable side (even though we barely see it.) In the beginning of transfer we see Tobias as a weak, cowering son. It really isn't so shocking when we learn about his father and what Tobias dealt with through his life. Somewhere through all this he vows to get out, and come the choosing ceremony that's exactly what he does. It is in this moment that we see him begin to grow. He is the first abnegation-dauntless transfer in a decade. We get to meet Amar who at the time is the dauntless transers instructor, and who sees Tobias and his fears and he gives the name Four to him.

He may have been born in abnegation, but he is Dauntless. The initiate shows Four journey through the process

In the Son four get one big suprise, and if you have read insurgent then you know that his mother isn't really dead, and this is the story that tells it. Also he is picked out from the initiates to train to become a Dauntless leader, but soon learns that it's not something he wants to be. Four is rebellious where ever he is, and he wont conform to any rules this comes through by a tattoo he gets. (if you've seen the movie Divergent then you know it's the tattoo with all the factions)

In traitor we get to see four as the transfers instructor, and we get to see how he views Tris. I really like this part because we know what Tris feels when she meets him, and learns about who he is. Now we get to see how he reacts to her. We get to see what other things he was doing while Tris was becoming part of Dauntless. He's not only an instructor he also works in the control room

These are exclusive scenes from Fours perspective.

"First Jumper---Tris!"

"Careful, Tris."

"You look good, Tris."
