Four: The Transfer (Divergent, #0.1):Better than I expected. It was nice to get more insight into Four’s home life and to see the beginning of his transformation from cowering victim to strong survivor. 3.5/5
The Initiate (Divergent, #0.2):The second installment in the Four quartet of novellas was a decent read. However I did find my mind wandering at times, it just didn’t hold my attention as well as “The Transfer”. It’s been a while since I have read the Divergent trilogy and I might have enjoyed this story more if I remembered all the characters from before. 3/5
The Son (Divergent, #0.3):The third installment of Four tidbits left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. I didn’t like how passive Four was in this story and didn’t agree with his choices,although I can appreciate that we was being pulled in a million directions at once.
It was also interesting(if not supremely frustrating)to learn more about the beginning of the end of Dauntless.
Overall this is a solid novella,but nothing special. 3/5
Four: The Traitor (Divergent, #0.4):Out of all of the novellas, this is my favourite. Although this series did dampen my love of Four. I thought it was stupid how he knew everything and did hardly anything to prevent it.
I was very annoyed at how he rejected leadership because he didn’t want to be a pawn, yet he was too shortsighted to realize that he was still a pawn working in the control room, just one without power…really didn’t understand his thought process.
Overall though,this was a fun and worthwhile read but I would suggest picking this up from your library rather than buying
