Very entertaining for a quick science fiction fix. And Ray Bradbury is a wonderful author!
The first book, Matched, is great! The second book, Crossed, is slow, but seems to be building to an exciting third and final book. Unfortunately, that is not what this book delivered. Instead of an action packed conclusion, what I got was added confusion and lack of momentum. This book was simultaneously "all over the place" and stagnant. Some of the concepts related to the plague, the cure, and the statistical sorting were interesting, but all these components did not come together very neatly in the end. The conclusion of this book was trying very hard to wrap everything up, but I felt like there was some vital component of the story still missing. And I agree with another reviewer in that I also would have liked a little more insight into the enemy. Overall, I was disappointed with this book.
Great combination of some of my favorite things! If you love 80's pop culture, video games of any kind, and/or books that take place in a dark future world, this book is for you! I was highly entertained and the story hooked me. Play on, player!
Great story! Highly recommend for both teens and adults! Can't wait for the third book in the trilogy!
If this book weren't free, I would ask for a refund. MAYBE if you've read his other works, it might make more sense, but it's not a good listen if you're not familiar with this particular character, Jane Sagan, from his other books. I got through 2 chapters and then stopped.
