This had me itching to re-read the entire series. The book runs parallel to Divergent and it was interesting to read about the other side of the story of the two characters and his insights. This had some of the strongest development I saw from Four, ...more

This was one of the more slower of the short stories, but wow did it have a lot of information in it. Some of it I predicted, although I'm not sure if it's because I remembered it from the novels or if I figured it out on my own - it's been a long ti ...more

It was a well done short story through Four/Tobias eyes, and it added to his character and helped me appreciate him more. I liked the insight to the background of his character as well as other details throughout the series as a whole. While I think ...more

The writing was superb, the author create Aminata's voice wonderfully. Her character felt ve

The book started off slow for me, and while it did pick up and ended up being an okay read for me, it wasn't what I was expecting.

The first half of the book was something I felt I had to slog through. Not a lot happened, and while it was a good time

This was a wonderful book, very emotional at times but it was an incredible read. I'd never have read this book, if it weren't for a online book group I belong to, and I'm glad I got a chance to read it. Not only was it well written, but it was also ...more

Virginia Woolf
“For it would seem - her case proved it - that we write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person. The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being, threads the heart, pierces the liver.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Eleanor Roosevelt
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

Eleanor Roosevelt
“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Albert Einstein
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein
