Free Four: Tobias Tells the Divergent Story

Warning: Divergent and Insurgent spoilers

I've told you how much I am loving the short stories that are coming between books in a series lately.  My love affair with these short stories continues with "Free Four: Tobias Tells the Divergent Story" where Veronica Roth graciously allows us inside the head of Tobias "Four" Eaton.  The scene during the Dauntless initiation told from Four's point of view is perfect.

While Divergent is told from the perspective of Triss Prior, readers are definitely left with lots of questions about Four.  It would certainly have seemed that Four was the perfect example of the Dauntless faction.  Understanding his life before he became one of the fearless is absolutely required to really get him as a character.  I for one was extremely surprised to learn he considered leaving the Dauntless.  That was a pretty mind blowing revelation!

Also, I'm really interested in the life of the Factionless.  There's something about them that intrigues me, but I just can't seem to place much trust in them.  Strange...

Ahh, reading "Free Four" makes me even more eager to read the final installment of the Divergent trilogy expected to be out in September of 2013.  However, there is quite a bit of buzz about the Divergent movie.  Check it out here.
