Brianna Reviews - The Transfer by Veronica Roth

The Transfer is a short story and is part of the Divergent Trilogy. It was released on 3rd September.

The Transfer is written from Four/Tobias's point of view which is why it initially drew my attention. It provides an interesting perspective into who Four really is, why he is the way he is, how he became that way and perhaps more interestingly, who Tobias is. The Transfer lets you see Four when he was still just Tobias; an Abnegation kid with nothing left to lose

The Transfer starts the night before the Choosing Ceremony and ends shortly after he starts his initiation into Dauntless and receives the name Four. We experience it with him and see the start of his transformation from Abnegation Tobias to Dauntless Four .

At the beginning of the short story, Tobias is weak against his father, questioning and uncertain of where or what he is going to do once the Ceremony makes him choose. It's great to see how his confidence grows and how he comes the person that we've read about in Divergent & Insurgent. Though the story was very short, it did give a good insight and with the release of other Four stories, i'm looking forward to seeing what else we can learn about Four/Tobias.
