I started to read and was intrigued with Tobias's point of view. However, I found this story slightly disappointing; most of this information had already been explained in Divergent. Nevertheless, I got to see sixteen year old Tobias's thoughts and feelings first hand. He is a wonderful character, full of his own insecurities and doubts, but he makes the bravest decision one can make: to change his life and escape his father's abuse. I admired him for his courage. I am glad that I read this story though, as I fell in love with Four/Tobias in Divergent, and this book made me love him more - scars and all! Characters without flaws are two dimensional and uninteresting, in my opinion. No one is perfect in real life, so why should characters be in books?
Veronica Roth is one of my favourite authors. I love her writing style, which flows beautifully. I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future.
I recommend this book if you love the Divergent series or Dystopian fiction. - Lynn Worton
I think it's important to point out that, although this could be read as a prequel to Divergent to give you a taster of the Divergent world, it would definitely be more enjoyable to those readers already familiar with the characters and the world Roth has built for us. Additionally, as far as I can tell, it doesn't seem to matter which order you read any of the short stories as they don't seem to link up but rather are small extracts relevant to a character's own story or chapters of Divergent from another point of view.
I really enjoyed this. It is very short, but it's exciting to get an insight through Four's eyes into his relationship with his father, his Aptitude test and his change of factions. What I liked the most though, and I think all fans of these novels will love this too, were the little links made between Tris and her family and Four growing up - for example, seeing Tris in the street. I know it seems so small but it's all cleverly woven through and I enjoyed spotting the links throughout. If you liked Divergent, you'll definitely like this.
