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!

    "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.

    "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!

    "Adds some depth but some repeat also"

    It was nice to hear Four's point of view. and sheds light on his actions in the Divergent book. some of it was close to what we knew already. I would no reccommend this if you have not already read th Divergent series, especially book 1

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Four stars for Four!"

    STORY (YA dystopia) - If you are unfamiliar with Divergent (good movie), it's the story of a dystopian world where young adults must join one of several factions when they turn 18. Each faction has its own beliefs, clothing and behavior. Everyone must fit like a perfect peg into their faction's hole and live together in their own part of town. That's the way it's always been and always will be...unless you're a Divergent.

    If you have seen the movie or read the book, you will enjoy this extra insight into Four's character, told from his perspective. He is a main character who is born in Abnegation, transfers to Dauntless and begins to think he may be a Divergent. You will hear of his training to become a member of Dauntless, how he meets Tris (romantic interest), and you will learn of the beginning of trouble between the factions. This is not a romance story, but Tris and Four do have a few romantic moments.

    PERFORMANCE - Mr. Stanford has the perfect voice for Four. A young adult who is smart, brave and strong. His performance is good, but he doesn't make enough extra effort to warrant more than three stars.

    OVERALL - It's been at least a year since I saw the movie and I haven't heard any books in this series yet, so I'm not the best person to say when to listen to this book. From my viewpoint, I think you could hear it before beginning the series or at any point in between. I don't think it contains "spoilers," just detailed character development and background. Please note that this book contains four other short background stories, so you don't need to purchase The Son, The Transfer, The Initiate or The Traitor.

    Audible recommends this book for teens age 11-13, but I'd recommend for late teens or older. There is no cursing or sex, but there is child abuse and themes more appropriate for older kids and adults.

    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.

    "Okay, when is the next one coming out?!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh, definitely! If Veronica writes more like this she very well may redeem herself for the debacle that happened in the 3rd book (the compound etc...).


    Which character – as performed by Aaron Stanford – was your favorite?

    Aaron Stanford's performance was perfect. I would suggest anyone grabbing the audiobook over the print just for his compelling portrayal of Four.

    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.

    "Three is Enough."

    I liked the first three books in the series. And they were all far far better than their movie adaptations. But as the headline shamlessly punningly states Veronica Rogh should have stopped at three. No doubt young girls make up the constituency for all the Four novels. I'm done...likely with the author as well as this is just milking a serial.
