This is the story of Tobias Eaton. It starts when he was still living in Abnegation and goes through his story of being an initiate after choosing Dauntless. I liked learning little things about his story from before he met Tris but I thought the story would be more about their relationship from his point of view. A very small portion of the story was about that.

It was really interesting to be able to look at the scenes of Divergent (the first book) from Tobias's point of view. Great read.

I love the short stories by four. He did a great job telling his side of the story in Divergent.

This is a great series! I love these books. My only negative comment is that some things in this book do not match up with the things that happened in "Divergent". I do however highly recommend this book. I have found that it was much more enjoyable to read after I've read the other three books. And I think that it was very helpful in knowing Four's side of things better and how he views the people around him.

I love this series! Since I am always confused about which book comes next and stuff here's a guide: #1 Divergent #2 Insurgent #3 Allegiant. And Four is Tobias's point of view and takes place in the past but it also overlaps a few chapters into Divergent (it contains spoilers too)

It was amazing to see Four's side of things because we didnt really know what he was thinking or how he felt until Alleigent. It was a nice change of perspective and very good on Veronica Roth's part

This was a nice flashback for me after already reading the series... It also reveals some of Four (Tobias's) past before meeting Tris which wasn't really mentioned in the series... This is a nice short read!

(Also please follow me (blue_wolf_710) above... Thank you!!)

I never read the divergent series.. But I have seen the movies.. Four is by far one of my favorite characters this book is perfect before Tris, before the first jump.

A MUST READ. Ive seen the movies, well the first two, and when i saw the book i was thrilled to be able to read it. the book is extremely detailed, and so much emotion in it that you are transported to a different place. in this case the book and movies are paralell

This book explains the life story of Tobias Eaton (From Divergent) in first person perspective. It explains why he first chose Dauntless and how well he managed during and after initiation-now called Four, he considers his transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless a fresh beginning, a new life. This book includes certain scenes from Divergent with Beatrice Prior.

whitefalcon17 Sep 03, 2014

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.
bestselling 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, and The 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.
