This is an American masterpiece, a classic that has been grossly overlooked in classes across the nation. Shirley Jackson created fiercely real character who will engage, entice and disgust you. Written in the 1960s is is scary how little things have changed. So many classrooms could benefit from this wonderful short novel.
This is one of the brightest debuts of any author I've read in a very long time. A dystopian novel that can not be compared to any other. With a hint of Cormac McCarthy and a tinge of Suzanne Collins this is undoubtly going to be a hit. Destined for the big screen!
This book was good by the end but it took far too long to get into it. On the positive side, the narration was absolutely amazing, world class si that it was actually very hard not to listen.
I can't say that i was ever entirely engrossed in this series, I find it to be a bit silly and cliched at times but this installment felt especially lackluster. I especially hate that the female narrator has changed so many times, their prononciations and the energy has changed each time. On the bright side Ed Westwick the male narrarator was amazing!
This was an amazing Young Adult novel... strong characters, gripping story, great narrator. Ann Aguirre really knows how to keep a reader going. Very gripping.
It was smart, inventive, thoughtful, beautiful and at times horrific. I haven't read something I loved so instantaneously since the Hunger Games.
