Synopsis: “Two years before Beatrice Prior makes her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader does the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is his chance to begin again. Newly renamed ‘Four’ he discovers that initiation is only the beginning.
Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. And his decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to act but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her it might become possible to be Tobias once again.“
MY RATING: 4 Starts
When I read the “Divergent” trilogy I totally loved the first two books, and as I said before, not because of the end of the book number three, I didn’t like the last book as much as I wanted to, so I got quite sad because I wanted to have loved all of the books of the trilogy… so when this book came out (The Divergent Collection of Stories) I got super excited because I had that feeling that I would love this book, and by loving this book I was going to be less disappointed about the end of the story, even if this is not the end of the story, even if this is only about Four and his life before Tris (kind of).
So, now that I finished this book I don’t know what to say to you… I don’t really feel that I loved it, maybe because I didn’t, I mean, I really like Four (the character) but I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I wanted to… which means that I gave to it only 4 stars… YES, 4 stars, not 4.5 stars as I was expecting to give to it or 5, but just 4 stars.
I liked it… I’m being totally straight with you… I liked it, but it was not a “good” reading in my opinion, probably because I was expecting a little more… I just can’t say that I want everyone to read this book, that I recommend it to EVERYONE… because that’s not how I feel about it.
