Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Fans of the Divergent series by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by this short story told from Four’s perspective.

This 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. 

Veronica Roth gave us a gift by creating this beautiful specimen of a man. Being able to see his thought process in comparison to Tris’ during such a powerful scene in Divergent is perfect fangirling material. Is he not just the cutest thing!?!? I mean seriously, there’s some serious swoon factor going on right now!

From his point of view we get to see how deep he really is as a person and how deep his attraction to Tris is. Plus I love that it has absolutely nothing to do with her looks. He feels connected to her on a deeper level, because they are both fighters, and strong and brave, they both understand what it means to be there and be free.  And when he says “Looking at her was like waking up” I damn near balled! That was pure perfection!

So yea, I pretty much inhaled this beautiful novella and spent an hour (ok… two) just sitting around, teary eyed, at the fact that Four isn’t real.

Excuse me while I go drown my sorrows as I say goodbye to him again!
