This book was a great read! I loved seeing into Four's mind, where he started and what he went through up to where we meet him. Veronica Roth did a great job of telling his story. I completed this book in about four days total. So, I though I might break this review down to the smaller stories, the first of which is:
I can't say a lot without giving details away, but I can tell you that it was a better intro to Tobias' life in Abnegation than I had expected. You see what more of what he went through with his father, and you see his thinking on leaving. It also introduces you to some of the characters you know in Divergent, but before they were rough and tough and truly hated (ex. Eric, and Max). You also meet Zeke, Shauna, Marlene, Lauren, Tori, Uriah, and Amar. You also see how Four got his name...
You see Four getting used to Dauntless, and you see small friendships form. You also see enemies arise, that threaten to destroy him. You see him rise to the top while others fall. And you see how he gains the determination to protect those he cares about, and the strength he needs to do it.
In this story, you see Four, settling into his new apartment, and trying to fit in as much as possible. You meet someone you never expected. And he also gets a suspicion that sets him on his course...
Four is now spying on the people that he is supposed to trust, the people meant to lead him, and the other Dauntless, some of whom he calls friends. You start to see just how far he is willing to go to get the truth and you see the beginning of Divergent. You also, see the start of his relationship with Tris...
There are also a few other short scenes, from his view including:
"You Look Good, Tris."
All in Four's perspective.
The stories were amazing and I recommend them to anyone who love the Divergent Series. Seriously check this book out!
