Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent #1.5)
I mean Fourtris goodness? Check.
Kick-ass action? Check.
But a scene from Four's POV?
This scene (the knife-throwing scene) from Four's POV is perfect fangirling material. I read it, sat absorbed in the moment and then started sniffling at the fact Four wasn't real for a good hour...or two!
I love the complexity of his character and how real Four is. And sorry, I can't call him Tobias for some reason - it just...more
But I just wish there was more. Although it was quite lovely seeing things from Four's POV. You know, I've never really swooned over him or found myself connecting to him for some reason. But here I liked him a little more. I particularly enjoyed his observation of the other initiates. I thought that was pretty interesting and informative.
I like that she is not your typical pretty heroine but he finds her determination and solid strength attractive. I can love him a litt...more
Here's what I thought : Four! Four! Four! Four!
It's a short story. But man...is this a goodie. I hearts teh Four. That's my official stance.
Did I waste 99 cents on a 14 page story? Maybe I did (because really, this should have been a freebie for as short as it is), but his PoV made my night. I didn't realize he had a witty side hiding under all of that seriousness in book 1. I...more
It was so great to read this from his POV.
I loved remembering how Tris saw him, how she was annoyed with him because she thought he was being "mean" to her (when in actuality he was trying to save her!).
This just makes me want to read Insurgent even more...I cannot wait until May 1st!
like this one.
a retelling of a key scene in divergent.
but…here's the thing. while i have loved almost all of the ones mira grant has put out there, and the patri...more
This was much too short. Why do authors feel the need to tease us with the male's perspective? I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love reading a beloved female-driven story again from the male's perspective. It's my weakness.
Free Four an ideal excerpt to read before or after Insurgent as a way to better understand Four's character, his thought process and his feelings for Tris. He's a pretty great character, you have to admit and I'm thrilled at any kind of deeper insight int...more
When I read Divergent I was happy and satisfied. In fact I had so much fun reading, that I let pass illogical sequences without shooting them down with disapproval and/or disdain. (Both of which I used to reserve for YA novels. Used to)
Then I came upon this little gem and groaned. 6 pages and this e-book gets over. Four tells more of an incident from his perspective than a 'story'. You're completely left wanting for more!! And what doesn'...more
Four was my fave character from Divergent so I'm grateful we're given the chance to peer into his mind: to see what things were like when he was an initiate, what his plans were just before Tris arrived (view spoiler)[to become factionless (hide spoiler)], and that he has...a fifth fear? (view spoiler)[hurting Tris (hide spoiler)]
I feel like short e-novellas should have their own rating system, because sure they aren't the complete story but they bring something to the table. This story for example brought a LOT to the table when it comes to hundreds of beating hearts who lovingly wait for any mention of Four in Divergent. Free Four is a short re telling of Divergent through Four's eyes, and not just on any...more
I love Four, I love him so much, he is one of my favorite male characters ever and this scene in particular is so intense, so strong, so vivid that I felt like dying and screaming and jumping all at the same time!
Veronica Roth, again, has demonstrated how incredible she is, how talented, how great.
Tomorrow comes out Insurgent and I believe this little but perfect story was...more
Seriously, I was pretty horrified by the glorified violence in Divergent, but this manages to be close to psychotic. Am I supposed to sympathise with this man? He's nasty, completely incapable of making any sort of comment without immediately tacking on some sort of insult, has a very messed up moral core, and is incredibly whiny.
Here's my big issue with this and Divergent. They seem to think that violence is cool, and advocate its use pretty strongly. There's a horrifi...more
I love how he describes his love for Tris as: "thing for her". I couldn't help but grin helplessly in front of my laptop.
It's also interesting because you get to know Four better (his thoughts at that moment and his actions as well), you'll get a brief history about Eric's past as an initiate.
I do disagree with some of the readers saying that there shou...more
HERE'S THE ENTIRE FREE FOUR STORY
I wouldn't have volunteered to train the initiates if not for the smell of the training room- the scent of dust and sweat and sharpened metal. This was the first place I ever felt strong. Every time I breathe this air I feel it again.
At the end of the room is a slab of wood with a target painted on it. Against one wall is a table covered with throwing knives- ugl...more
#1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth retells a pivotal Divergent scene (chapter 13) from Tobias's point of view. This thirteen-page scene reveals unknown facts and fascinating details about Four's character, his past, his own initiation, and his thoughts about new Dauntless initiate Tris Prior.
This was interesting. I was very intrigued when I heard about this short book. I wanted to know what Tobias was...more
