'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I liked Perry more than I did Aria. She was very annoying to me until the part where they reach Marron's. I was feeling like the book should have been more focused on Perry instead of Aria. The book was pretty average until about the last 80 pages. That's really when the book picked up for me and I ended up finishing it in like an hour. One thing I didn't like about this book was the lack of explanation for things I felt like where important. For example, The Aether and The Unity. I would really like to know exactly what the Aether is and where it comes from. I would also like to know what the Unity actually was. I am determined to read the second book in the series though because of the ending of this one.
Loved it! It definitely was not what I was expecting. I don't know how I would feel if The Selection was a real thing in America. I think I would participate for the fun of it and to get away from home, but like America I don't think I would actually win. I like how America and Maxon's relationship started. Even though she wants to be with Aspen so bad, I think her and Maxon would be perfect for each other. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
Four: A Divergent Collection is a bind up of short stories, told from the perspective of Four, that take place in the world of Divergent.
In this book, you get to know who Four was before he was Four, who he was once he became Four and who he is once he meets Tris.
The Transfer (#0.1)
The transfer takes place two years before the events of Divergent take place. In this story, you get to meet Tobias Eaton, while still a member of abnegation, going through his choosing ceremony. Throughout the pages, you come to really understand who Tobias is, why he chose to leave his faction and why he chose Dauntless as his new home.
The Initiate (#0.2)
Now on to Tobias' initiation to become Dauntless. Throughout the initiate, you will also meet a key character to the Divergent series, Eric, who later becomes a Dauntless leader. In the initiate, you get to see Tobias grow, you see for yourself what events take place to shape and mold the character known as Four.
The Son (#0.3)
Tobias, finally being a full member of Dauntless, now struggles to find a place in the hierarchy of Dauntless. This is where he begins to suspect that a foul plan is brewing withing the Dauntless leadership. Tobias also discovers a truth about his past that could affect his future.
The Traitor (#0.4)
Two years later, running parallel with the beginning of Divergent, Tobias uncovers the details of a plan, made by Erudite, that could threaten the faction system. Throughout this time, Tobias is getting to know a new transfer initiate, whom came from abnegation, known as Tris Prior.
I, being a huge fan of the Divergent series and the character known as Four, couldn't wait to get my hands on this bind up of four stories told from the perspective of Four. I quite enjoyed reading from his point of view, as well as getting to know how a boy went from being Tobias Eaton from abnegation to Four from Dauntless. Overall, this book is a must read for Divergent & Four fans. I know I, personally, could never get enough of Four, and this book just made the series all the more enjoyable. A definite 5/5 star rating for this beauty!
The sequel to The Hunger Games is far better than anticipated by me. It was difficult to put down and it had many, for me, unexpected turns of events. Suzanne Collins manages to effectively balance the action vs the romance (you may remember that I generally speaking loathe romance novels) to keep the story engaging, and occasionally she manages to even throw in some dry non-cringe worthy humor. I'm definitely looking forward to the final instalment in the series, Mockingjay.
