    Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories told from Tobias' point of view. Listeners first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Listeners will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection.

    Kara and Jessie's Mom says: "Surprise!!!! THREE EXTRA stories on the audiobook!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Four to be better than the print version?

    I read the book first, then I listened to the audiobook. I was about turn off my phone when I heard, "Keep listening for more..." Really? More? Yes!!!! There were three additional stories that were not in the book!!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    In Allegiant, Four's voice wasn't very well developed. While his thoughts were clearly his own, Roth didn't successfully vary her writing to differentiate between Four and Tris. The first of the novellas in the book also suffered from the same lack of differentiation, but the other stories were much more obviously Four's voice. While she still had Four waxing philosophical as Tris did, he had a much more male edge to his voice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I will avoid spoilers...Four's Fear Landscape was by far the best scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have listened to the audiobook in one setting, but the reality of life intervened.


    Any additional comments?

    Aaron Stanford has captured the essence of Four. He enhanced Roth's writing and really brought it to life. I am frustrated that there were a few scenes from Divergent that I really wanted to hear from Four's perspective that Roth did not include. At the same time, I'm not sure how well those scenes would have transformed into independent story arches.
