The Transfer by Veronica Roth (Divergent 0.5)
Book Summary: More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by "The Transfer," the first of four new short stories told from Four’s perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.
Liana's Summary: We peek into the before of Tobias's life: how he chose Dauntless and got his name.
This was just a short little novella, so short review: The Transfer lets us look at Tobias a little more (because we're oh-so-curious about him and we still don't know enough even after reading Free Four). Tobias is an interesting character. This novella tells us of the time he chose Dauntless instead of Abnegation and decided to turn another path and get away from his abusive father. It tells us how his name is Four.
At first, I thought that this was about Tris, since my connotation for "Abnegation" is now Tris Prior. And then I made sure I was reading the right thing, because, hey, we know enough about Tris. Let's get some Tobias in here. (LOL.)
But anyway, Veronica Roth knows how to do this stuff perfectly.
