Fans of Veronica Roth [like me] who have read Divergent and Insurgent [like me] and who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Allegiant [like me] in October will be thrilled to learn that one of the short stories about Toby Eaton a.k.a. Four arrived on September 3rd [as I was] if they don't already know it and haven't already read it.
Those of you who haven't-- if you are reading the series-- really ought to download The Transfer and sign up for the next three shorts after this one. I won't say too much here. Just that The Transfer is a bit of the back story about Four, how he got his nic and a bit of his childhood memories. His dad coached him on how to answer the test questions but Toby didn't exactly obey. Nuff said.
sapphoq reviews says: If you haven't gotten The Transfer yet, you should. If you haven't read Veronica Roth's first two books of the series yet, you should. Especially if you like tight writing with action, rebellious teens, and an interesting but shadowy sort of dystopia. Highly recommended, as is anything that Veronica Roth writes. Yes, I'm a diehard fan. I appreciate excellence in the written word.
