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.

    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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "If your a Four fan, buy it!"

    I love the Divergent trilogy and this ad on book is no different. Thankfully if you listened to the series then you'll be pleased to know they kept the same narrator-yeah! There are a few discrepancies in each story. Obviously the same author wrote this, I know. I'm just unsure why Four would've done/said a few things written. Also some time lines seem off. But I enjoyed it.

    What made the experience of listening to Four the most enjoyable?

    the narrator was excellent!


    What did you like best about this story?

    i loved the details and it gave more depth to the divergent story


    What about Aaron Stanford’s performance did you like?

    loved how he portrayed the emotions in the speech and how his voice changed with each person that he portrayed, i could actually tell who was talking just by the way he voice changed.

    "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.
