Free Four: Tobias Tells the Divergent Story (Divergent #1.5)
FREE Four: Tobias Tells the Story (came from Veronica Roth, on Facebook)
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 one end of the room is a slab of wood with a target painted on it. Against one wall is a table cover...more
Well...check! This scene (the knife-throwing scene) from Four's POV is literally fangirling material. I read it, sat absorbed in the moment and then started sniffling at the fact Four wasn't real. 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 sounds better as...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!
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
#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 thinking and how he saw thin...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
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
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
And I think it made Four sound younger than I had been thinking of him. And part of that was seeing him through Tris' eyes up until now rather than being in his head, but I like the "older" Four we see in Divergent more than the "younger" more uncertain Four here.
Still though, so glad th...more
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 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
It was really good to hear this from Four's point of view. I would absolutely LOVE if they did a whole book from his view. Like a split view book thing. This first scene where Four really starts to like Tris. And it's so sweet to hear how he says it. I LOVE THIS.
last line: (view spoiler)[“I can’t leave now. I like her...more
The metaphors were pretty nice though.
Free Four is a short addition to the Divergent series, written by Veronica Roth. The story narrates chapter 13 of the first book from Tobias’s perspective. The main purpose of this short story, as it appears to be, is to convey to the reader the feelings and thoughts that are overwhelming Tobias. The chapter takes place, just as it did in the first book, in the Dauntless headquarters during the initiation period of the new Dauntless faction...more
I only have one thought, regarding this short:
Yes, I was delighted at the romantic bits as much as the next fangirl, but to be honest, the part I enjoyed most was the revelation that Tobias was so disappointed at the path that Dauntless was taking as to decide to become factionless.
Bar for a moment the fact that he decides to stay for Tris, I think it's very telling that he'd decided to leave in the first place. That...more
Após a leitura de Divergente acabei por descobrir, por mero acaso, esta pequeníssima história que corresponde a um dos capítulos de Divergente, o capítulo referente à primeira fase da iniciação dos Intrépidos mais precisamente no episódio referente ao atiro ao alvo em que Beatrice a.k.a. Tris se voluntaria para substituir Al quando Eric lhe diz para se colocar em frente ao alvo.
Com esta história é possível compreender melhor a perspectiva de Quatro relativamente à fação em causa, Intrépidos, em...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
Other than reinforcing the uber-simplistic character stereotypes from Divergent and giving us a nice strong whiff of Anti-intellectualism, this short also decid...more
