I can't leave now. I like her too much. There, I said it. But I won't say it again.

Of course she thinks I'm like Eric. I just threw knives at her head. I screwed it all up. Permanently.

"Eyes open then." I say, tapping the skin between my eyebrows. I don't really need her eyes to be on mine, but I feel better when they are.

There goes your pretty face. But Peter's right, she's not pretty, that word is too small. She is not like the girls I used to stare at, all bend and curve and softness. She is small but strong, and her bright eyes demand attention. Looking at her is like waking up.

And then his eyes shift to mine, just for a second. It's like he knows, he KNOWS I have a thing for her, so he's going to force me to throw knives at her.

Still, it takes more bravery for Al to say no than for Eric to force him to get a knife in the back of the head, which is something Eric will never understand.

I have to admit that Christina is good- though I don't like giving credit to Candor smart-mouths- and so is Peter- though I don't like giving credit to future psychopaths. Al, however, is just a walking, talking sledgehammer, all power and no finesse... Al the Sledgehammer has unexpectedly soft insides.

I don't usually hate people, but I hate Peter. I hate that he tries to shrink people, the same way Eric does. Tris doesn't answer, just picks up a knife and throws, still with that awkward arm, but it works- I hear metal slam against board and I smile.

I try not to be afraid of him, but I know how smart he is and that if I'm not careful, he'll notice that I keep staring at her, and that will be my undoing.

I wouldn't have volunteered to train the initiates if not for the smell of the training room- the scent of dust and sweat and sharpened metal. This was the first place I ever felt strong. Every time I breathe this air, I feel it again.

Good sample to see if you want to invest time in reading the series. But if you've already started the series, you've likely already read much of this book.

This is a very quick read, and is exactly as the title says, Tobias' retelling of the knife throwing scene. That's it. I enjoyed it; I got satisfaction in knowing that Four loved Tris before she realized it. I enjoyed that we got to hear from him in Allegiant, even though it was my least favorite of the three (his perspective was not one of that books many weaknesses). It would be nice to have a couple other scenes of the first two installments told from Four's perspective.

My son has read Divergent and he LOVED Tobias telling the story for a change.

I loved this. Tobias is such a complicated, but simple character at the same time that his point of view makes for very interesting reading. Plus I love hearing his train of thought as he did things that, the first time I read it, I wanted to slap him for. It all makes so much more sense, and I wish she would make another, special copy of that book, but from his perspective.
