Four: A Divergent Collection

by Veronica Roth

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | July 8, 2014 | Hardcover

Four: A Divergent Collection is rated 4.5294 out of 5 by 17.

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.

From #1New York Timesbestselling 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, andThe 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Four I like reading Tobias' point of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable I really enjoyed reading from Four's POV, but I really wish it was a full sized book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting book I really enjoyed reading this book and looking forward to the rest of them. I like reading Tobias' viewpoint of the story "Four".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity I loved the series and found them all exciting and I couldn't wait to read more. I really enjoyed seeing it from Tobias' perspective. It filled in the blanks nicely with his thoughts, actions and emotions. Great compliment to the series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little boring. If you love the Divergent series and would like to know a tad more of Tobias Eaton this book is for you. If you want to collect the uber gorgeous books of the series then this is a must add in your Divergent collection. If you are looking for the 4th book of Divergent then this is not the book you are looking for, the Divergent ended at Allegiant (3rd book). And this book is just like a prologue-slash-epilogue. If you are a little critical with what you read, like me, I guess I should have just bought a cheaper copy, a used book perhaps. This book is too short, a fast read that is. I finished the entire series in two weeks 1,2,3. Then when I was reading Four it took me like a month, because I think I was too bored with it and the scenes are just so repetitive, I expected it to be that way because the author would just want us to hear Four, about what was he thinking during the series. I believe that this novel could have been better if it told the story of Four AFTER the Allegiant. So as to give all the initiates out there (readers/fans) a gleam of hope of another Four's story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book It was great to see things from the perspective of Tobias (4) since you never really knew what his thoughts were througout the series. It gave great closure to the series for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing book When I bought this book I didn't know exactly what is was about but it was a divergent book so I grabbed it. The book is amazingly written and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Veronica Roth's divergent series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Four <> I read Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant last year and adored the trilogy. Four had to have been one of my favourite characters, and I was very happy when I found out this book was being written! I didn't exactly enjoy having Four's POV in Allegiant because it was hard to differentiate it from Tris', but he was very well portrayed as a voice of his own in this book. I liked the way that it started with the ending of his aptitude test and the way it followed through into the four sections (or short stories) of the book, showing his initiation, job selection, his rivalry with Eric, etc. Four was a very complicated character, and actually feeling his emotions and seeing certain events from Divergent (in part four) from his POV was very interesting. We were able to investigate and better understand his parental relationship through this book and we really saw a lot more of Marlene and Zeke in this book, which was great, because I found them to be very interesting characters. Learning how he had felt about Tris throughout her whole initiation was great, because I had always pondered when he started to like her more and how their relationship was in his mind. I very much enjoyed this book and I definitely recommend that you read it! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Like It I really liked the book. It was great to find out what Four was doing the whole time. My only complaint would be that sometimes conversations in different parts and books that occurred at the same time didn't match up exactly. And that the order of the stories could have been more chronological.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it This was a super quick read but it was really cool to dive into the mind of Tobias Eaton and his life growing up. I particularly enjoyed the details pertaining to his relationship with Marcus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I loved the other books in the series. I loved being able to look at this world from another perspective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT!! I bought this book at walmart, the other day (it was cheaper than on here.) I read it in about a day, and I loved it!!! Four's point of view was a little bit hard to get into because it was used to hearing Tris, but once I got through the first couple of pages, i was hooked!!! I liked it better than the actual Divergent trilogy! (SURPRISE!) I think Veronica did a fantastic job at letting us see a little deeper into what four went through before Tris was in the picture! I really want more from fours point of view... maybe insurgent and allegiant??!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Four If you're a Divergent fan you're going to LOVE this! After reading this book i felt even more in love with Tobias ;).. READ IT! you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I always wanted! I've only gotten through half of this book at the moment, but I can just say it's everything I could have wanted. You've gotten a taste of reading from Tobias' point of view in Allegiant, but to really hear about Tobias' story, from the Choosing Ceremony to meeting Tris, it's amazing. I've always wanted to know how Tobias was like before, his feelings about the faction system during that time, and just all those unanswered questions about his past. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it wasn't longer! I would've loved to read even more depth, I don't wanna finish this too quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book Really glad I bought it. Veronica Roth did not disappoint, and it was really nice to see what Tobias' life was like before Tris was introduced, and what he was thinking when he was with her as well. Good book, nice cover. The only thing I didn't like was that there were no chapters within it. I mean, the little stars separated the sections but, I would have preferred chapters.
