Matthew asked:

Is Four/Tobias's POV in this book written like it was in Free Four, or how it was in Allegiant?

Jillian Not an easy answer. I did not notice much of a difference, myself. Probably a little of both... because the four novellas in "Four" were released at different times. "Four: A Divergent Collection," is just a compilation of those novellas all put into one book. "Free Four" was released in 2012 about a month before Insurgent was released. Roth was likely working on Allegiant already at that point, so the perspectives of Free Four and Allegiant would be fairly similar, as she was already starting to explore Tobias's POV. The first novella from Four, "The Transfer," was released in Sept. 2013, a month before Allegiant, so again written around the same time. The last three stories, "The Initiate," "The Son," and "The Traitor" were all just released in July, several months after Allegiant, and simultaneously with the Four collection, (along with some bonus scenes). Roth would have completely developed Tobias's "voice" by then, and would have had pretty good insight into Tobias's POV for those scenes, so the last three stories would be more like Allegiant, I think. Does all that make sense?
