I've found this to be the most detailed of the five short stories; there's an awful lot more information revealed to readers than in some of the other tales. In particular, we see Four coming to grips with changing from Abnegation to Dauntless and acclimatising to his new surroundings and the new traits he is supposed to demonstrate - I loved the tendencies to cleanliness and precision which Roth wove into Four's story; this made it feel much more personal.
The Son also shows readers how Four came to work in the control rooms, as an instructor instead of as a Dauntless leader alongside Eric but also more minor details such as how he got his tattoos or came to have his own room when all the other Dauntless members share rooms in Divergent. I enjoyed these aspects the most because I felt like they tied up a few loose ends and answered a few questions that I'd been wondering about when reading Divergent. I realise none of them are "game-changers" for the plot throughout the trilogy but fans of Divergent will get a nice buzz from finding out some "behind-the-scenes" details I think.
Ultimately, The Son cleverly looks at Four's relationship with his parents. Because of this it is absolutely essential that you have at least read Divergent as there are a couple of major spoilers within this novella - something to have in mind if you were thinking of just reading this to see if you'd like Roth's writing or the Divergent world. Incidentally, aside from reading Divergent, I really don't think it matters too much which order you read these novella in. I would recommend reading The Transfer before reading The Son purely because there is a small link between a faction-less character in both stories so it might be nice to appreciate this link.
I really enjoyed this novella. It was great to get to see more into Four's life within Dauntless and I was really intrigued to see how the demise of Dauntless began through Four's eyes. A very good read.
