More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by #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.
I really enjoy when we get another POV on characters that we’ve come to know and love and be attached to. I think especially with Tobias/Four, we wanted to get some of the thoughts that went through his head when we had his Choosing Ceremony. I like the consistency here about his feelings towards Marcus and i love that we got to see some of the intros that were made from his POV with Tori, Zeke and some of the others.
The other bit of insight that i like is that Four had a bit of an insecure side that we didn’t really see much of in the series so far so i wonder if it’ll come through in the finale or if it’s now something in the past upon choosing Dauntless
It’s a nice teaser here that the factionless man references Four’s mom and quite a bit of foreshadowing here, which is nice given what we read in book 2. Now i can’t wait to see the novellas of the other 3 which will be a nice tie-me-over until Allegiant comes out
