Blog Update From Veronica Roth- Free Four! (Insurgent Pre-Order Campaign)

We posted earlier this week about the Free Four campaign, but in Veronica Roth’s update we got something even better.

Check out this hint on which scene we might get from Four’s POV:

For me this whole bonanza was less about hitting a particular goal and more about giving something back to readers who have been supportive for a long time, since you are the ones paying attention to stuff like this. Sometimes it’s hard to be an early reader– you don’t get a paperback, no one knows what you’re talking about, you have to wait the longest for the sequel, when your friends discover it you feel like you’ve lost your indie cred– but now you get to read something extra. I feel pretty good about this plan.


I had a lot of fun doing this. I thought it would be difficult, because part of what makes Four interesting as a character, to me, is this wall he puts up between himself and other people, and writing from his perspective meant taking down that wall to see what was really behind it. Strangely, it wasn’t. I think I spent a lot more time in Four’s head than I realized, though I was always writing from Tris’s perspective. I sort of knew how he sounded and what he thought about things. (Obviously it still took a lot of work, but I wasn’t STUCK like I thought I might be.)


The biggest challenge was actually choosing the right scene, one that could give the most interesting insights into his character and his relationships. I went through the whole book with sticky notes, searching for my best options, and vacillated between two options for about a day before landing on the right one.


This was really good for me, because it gave me a fuller understanding of his character and of what he was going through while Tris was an initiate. I’m confident that some things in the scene will surprise you, because they definitely surprised me.


Now that I am talking about this I have realized that I AM SO ANTSY FOR YOU ALL TO READ THIS AHHHH.


I mean…insert something more dignified here. Ahem.


So what scene are you hoping for? I admit, I’m holding out for either ‘The Ferris Wheel’ scene or ‘Four’s Fear Landscape’. Let us know what you’re wishing for in the comments below!

  1. I think either the Ferris Wheel, the knife throwing scene, the scene where Tris is attacked, and he beats up Drew, or his fear landscape (though, I’m doubtful of that one).
