It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a book nook post. Between school and moving I haven’t had as much time to read as I’d like. However, I did get some new books for Christmas that I’m starting to work my way through. This week I thought I’d give my opinions on the book Four from the Divergent series.
Four is a collection of short stories following the character Tobias (nicknamed Four). Four is a major character in the Divergent trilogy, and this book gives some insight into his backstory which is briefly touched on in the main Divergent story. Most of the stories occur before the trilogy starts, but there are also snippets here-and-there that give you an idea of what was going on in Four’s mind during the first book, Divergent, in the series.
I was really looking forward to reading this book because I enjoyed reading the first two books in the Divergent trilogy (I just haven’t gotten around to reading the third). Four was always this interesting and mysterious character that I always wanted to know more about. The book Four was a welcomed side-story to the Divergent trilogy. I felt the book was just as good as the main series and I only wish it would have been a bit longer since it was so enjoyable to read. Veronica Roth did a great job of creating a backstory that flowed and made sense along side the main trilogy. If you liked the Divergent trilogy, specifically the first book, then I highly suggest picking up Four for a quick read.
