Mini Review--The Transfer by Veronica Roth

More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by "The Transfer," the first of four new short stories told from Four’s perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.

More Four! Huzzah!! The Transfer is the first in a set of novellas by Veronica Roth that features our favorite Dauntless! Or one of them anyway!

This is the story of Tobias's Choosing Ceremony and how he ended up with the Dauntless. We also get a glimpse of the terrible home life he had with his father Marcus. Suffering from abuse of all kinds, no wonder he chose the faction that would upset his father the most. I would too! Although...not sure I would survive the ruthless initiation tests they have!

Tobias goes through the same trials we saw Tris complete. Jumping onto the train, jumping off and onto a rooftop, diving off said rooftop to a hidden net below...all of it!

Then of course we watch him go through his fearscapes and see his fears and how he was given his nickname Four! 

All in all, a great origin story!! Apparently, the word I heard is that eventually all these novellas will be complied into one book! So I might be waiting for that one instead of continually paying $2 for each one. Besides, I do love my print books! 

Overall Rating 5/5 stars



  1. Sounds like a great read! I haven't looked at the novellas but like Four a lot

  2. I'm a little hesitant to read novellas because they seem so short but they end up being super long but The Transfer sounds good. I am probably going to wait until they all come out in a full book, that sounds really cool. Great review! :)
