There is absolutely no reason to purchase this book, especially for $7.93 and 1 hour and sixteen minutes, all which were taken from the other two books. Not one thing is new, this short story is just pieced together with Tobias' memories and his fear landscape he took with Beatrice, everything we already knew. The story would have been fine if it were released right after the first book, except it still would have been way over priced. I feel like I was deceived and taken advantage of, if a new book is released, it should contain at least "something" new. I will say Aaron did a good job with narration and I am looking forward to listening to Allegiant tomorrow but I must admit being ripped off right before punched my attitude a little.
I guess I wasn't paying attention when I ordered this. This book is basically the first couple chapters from the Divergent book, albeit from Four's perspective. Expensive mistake as it was short and nothing new. VERY disappointing!
We pretty much already know all that is in this book. I think the upcoming books will be good/better and it would be fun to get Four's perspective when he meets Tris, but this book is so short it shouldn't be worth a credit from Audible. The author should have combined all the Four books into one. It feels a little like she is just trying to make money off the release of these books one a at a time. The story is great I loved it. I am happy to have background.
Four's initiation experience is so similar to the one Tris has in the beginning with the train etc, I would have liked to have had something different. I felt like I knew what to expect too much with this short story.
Combine them all in a set and sell them as a set. Then it would feel worth using one of my whole credits.
People who are interested in how four got his name.
It wasn't the complete story for the price.
The narrator was ok.
It provided a small but of background to a main character in the Divergent series.
Overall, the book was disappointing for the price and what you get. It covers what feels like a small chapter of Fours story.
Yes because they story was interesting and it was cool seeing how Tobias thinks and why he chose dauntless.
Tobias, he's basically the only character..
Yes, it's short enough to do so.
Great story but not worth the money. Too short to be worth $8 or a $15 credit.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
I was waiting for this short story for over a month cuz i am a HUGE fan of the Divergent series, and finally its here. I ADORED this short story by Veronica Roth it was fantastic hearing it as Four's perspective. The beginning of Divergent we hear of Tris's POV, but now its Four's and we get to see how his life was and his struggles with his father. I don't want to spoil it to u just trust me if u loved the book Divergent, you will DEFINITELY love The Transfer as well. Please buy it now and listen to it its just an hour long. I can't wait till the other three short stories comes out !!!

In a sentence The Transfer: A Divergent Story is more or less the origin story of Tobias er "Four", you know the "heart-throb" from the main books. His hatred for the Abnegation his fathers faction and how he came to and his initiation to the Dauntless. Pretty hard to write a lot about this novella, but it you are a fan of the series you will find it interesting, but definitely not necessary to enjoy the main books in the series. Will I get the other 3 soon to be released novellas? Undecided at the moment.
I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.
I like that it is from Fours point of view.
I would compare it to Dream Dark: a Beautiful Creatures story, told from Link's point of view. I love to get another's point of view.
Everything he did a great job.
I just loved it all.

Its's a great story. The background on Four is perfect. It just leaves you wanting more info, more story line. I believe Veronica Roth could write an entire book on Four and Divergent fans would eat it up! If you liked Divergent and Four's character you'll enjoy this lil reading about him. Its not expencive and worth the money.
