Publisher's Summary

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. When taken together, these long narrative pieces illuminate the defining moments in Tobias' life. The first three pieces in this volume - "The Transfer", "The Initiate", and "The Son" - follow Tobias's transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, "The Traitor", runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving listeners a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty - and love - that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior.

Exclusive scenes included!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Good short story but should be read 1st or 2nd"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a more in depth look into Four and gave you a better understanding of him. It is not
    nessasary but nice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Getting to know Four


    What about Aaron Stanford’s performance did you like?

    I thought he did a good job


    Was Four worth the listening time?

    I thought it was worth every minute as I wanted to know him.. I know some will think it would be a waste of time expecially if you read it after the other books,

    Story
    "Really enjoy Four's point of view."
    If you could sum up Four in three words, what would they be?

    I really enjoy the way Roth has written Four. It is very insightful getting the story from Four's point of view. There are a lot of details that you can guess at from the stories as told by Tris, but this fills in so much more detail. I also really like the character of Four, so I'm glad I got to hear more about him.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked most was seeing how his relationship with Tris affected him.


    What does Aaron Stanford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Aaron Stanford has a voice that really fits the character of Four. He is easy to listen to.

    Story
    "I would have gone on listening forever!"
    What other book might you compare Four to and why?

    It's a side story of Divergent and very nice


    What about Aaron Stanford’s performance did you like?

    Everything


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No need - it's alredy out. I think the producers would do well including those stories in the movies


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to more stories from Four's point of view. I am a real fan of Veronica Roth, but since I saw the movie my passion has even increased, if possible.

    Story
    "Not worth the time"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It was not a story and added nothing to the series


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    It was not a story. Why did she bother just tossing garbage in at the end?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Aaron Stanford?

    No one should have read this book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Four?

    There wasn't any


    Any additional comments?

    Hate that this was just thrown in. The reader switched into very weird voices. There was no story, simply fragments that went no where.

    Story
    "pretty good but lacking a bit"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    the only reason I would recommend it is if they were absolute fans that can't get enough but I was hoping it would go thru with his point of view of the whole series but itstead it was more of a backstory with no real new information. I wouldn't spend the extra money for it but it wasn't a bad book. just lacking in my opinion.


    If you’ve listened to books by Veronica Roth before, how does this one compare?

    this one just lacked a bit.


    What does Aaron Stanford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he brings the character more to life makes it more easily pictured in my head


    Do you think Four needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes!!!! if there was a second book that covered the rest of the series from his point of view it would be nice.

    "I Wish More Authors Did This!"

    I really enjoyed Divergent, so Four was a special treat. And I had a similar revelation that I've had in other series, and that is that it's a shame we were following the wrong hero! Like in Lord of the Rings how Aragorn or Gimli or Legolas was much more interesting than the hobbits, or like James Potter, Lupin, and Sirius were much more interesting than Harry, Hermoine and Ron, I think Four his fellow initiates were more interesting than Tris!

    But in any case, a second chance to visit that world, learn some new things and get some new insights, and enjoy the familiar story from a different point of view is pretty neat. I wish more authors gave their fans a similar opportunity!

    "Whoo!!"
    Where does Four rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Highest ranking!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Four, because he's strong and you hear it in the way Aaron reads it.


    What does Aaron Stanford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Intensity, raw emotion, depth!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not sure, but I would cast Aaron just for his voice alone. (No offense to Theo because I love him as Four too.)


    Any additional comments?

    Just tell Aaron he has to give his voice for other audiobooks too. I can't wait to hear him read again, especially since I've finished Allegiant and the Four Series. I'll be re-hearing them both until a new Audiobook with Aaron Stanford comes out.
    ;-)

    "Nice Suprise"
    What did you love best about Four?

    I enjoyed the back story on one of the main characters. This explains many things about Four, where he came from, and why he acts the way he does.I did not put this book down until I finished listening to every word! Good job! Alright Ms. Roth what's next?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Four?

    The most memorable moment for Four was when he was made the decision to switch factions. Heroic move!
