Book Review: FOUR: THE TRANSFER--A DIVERGENT STORY by Veronica Roth


 

Four: The Transfer is the first of four prequel books based on Tobias Eaton's, aka Four, journey from his abusive home in Abnegation to the dangerous and exciting new world of Dauntless. 

Summary: 
More Four!
Fans of the Divergent series by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by ‘The Transfer’, the first of four new short stories told from Four’s perspective.

Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory and relationships.

This first part of the Four series was really good! It made me cry a little, and feel for Four's pain with having to deal with a monster for a father. It's funny because later on we figure out that Four's mother Evelyn isn't dead, so it kinda made me want to yell to Four that she was still alive. Also, Four's decision for the Choosing Ceremony was interesting, too. He started by contemplating staying in Abnegation, but as soon as his dad hit him the night before the Ceremony, Four KNEW he had to get out of that house and away from his awful father. 

The Dauntless initiation process with Amar was cool, too. I liked how Amar didn't tease Four or anything when he found out about Four's fears and why Four had them. He just understood and gave him a new name. It gave Four power and control over who he wanted to be in this new faction. 

I can't wait to read the second part of the Collection, The Initiate, before the Insurgent movie comes out next year.
