Book Review: Four: The Initiate
Author: Veronica Roth
Pages: EBook 40
Summary: "The Initiate" provides readers with a glimpse into Tobias's Dauntless initiation experience, including an epic game of late-night Dare; his first tattoo; the beginning of his passion for training new initiates; and his nascent understanding of the danger of being Divergent.
My Rating: 8.25/10
What I liked/disliked about the book: There were some nice parallels between Four's days of fitting into Dauntless and Tris, which I liked and thought was rather clever - and I think that helps me understand their relationship later on in the series and why they connected the way they do. I think that's the best part of the these short stories is that there are a lot of little pieces, some very subtle, that help pull out plot pieces, both major and minor from the series. Some of which I never really appreciated and others I always felt, were slightly awkward in how they fitted in the book. Now they are less so because of the short stories.
Would I recommend it to read: Yes
What to read next: Four: The Son
