ebook, 13 pagesPublished April 23rd 2012 by Katherine Tegen Books#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.
While I really liked the new perspective and that we got to learn more about Four and how his mind works, I wish there had been more! I read this in about ten minutes, if that, and while I liked this short story, I was kind of expecting more. I'm dying for Allegiant and was hoping Free Four would tide me over for a while for the Divergent world, if that makes sense. But it just left me wanting more. I'm going to do a reread of the series shortly before Allegiant is released and am so excited! I almost want to do it now, but I know that will absolutely kill me.
