Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent #1.1) by Veronica Roth - Ashley's Review

Title: Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story
Author: Veronica Roth
Year Published: 2012

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Synopsis: #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth retells a pivotal Divergent scene (chapter 13) from Tobias's point of view. This thirteen-page scene reveals unknown facts and fascinating details about Four's character, his past, his own initiation, and his thoughts about new Dauntless initiate Tris Prior.

Review: This story was short and sweet, so I'll try to keep my review the same. I've always liked Four (even when I don't like his relationship with Tris), and I think it's super cool that we're able to see such a pivotal scene from his perspective. I mean, I know that we eventually find out his motivation for what he does with the knives and with throwing them at Tris in the main books, but somehow it's different and more personal reading the scene directly from him. 

I think this story, even with as short as it is, really helps give just a little bit more depth to Four, Tris, and even Eric. If I didn't already dislike Eric, he would definitely be at the top of my crap list after reading this. He's also kind of terrifying, especially with what we learn about how he handles his fear landscapes. 

If you've read any of the books in the Divergent  series, I definitely recommend that you read this story! You probably won't learn much that you don't already know, but it's worth it. A 4/5, only because I wish it was longer/we had more stories like this!
