My rating: 4 of 5 stars
One of my very best friends gave me this book last spring as a gift knowing my special love for dystopian fiction. And she hit the nail on the head! The prose was a little choppy, but story line was great and was double great in that I could see today’s current news loosely in the story line. Those type of stories always make me shudder. I was happy to learn that this is the first of a series, so the book even leaves cliffhangers at the end! AHHHHH!!!! I almost swallowed this book whole. I had to force myself to slow down and really chew on the content. In that same line of thought, I’m going to read something else before I move on the second book in the series, so I can savor it a little more. Good dystopian fiction isn’t something I come across everyday, so I want to really enjoy it while I have it!
