This book constantly made me feel tense and nervous. Everything would seem perfectly calm in one moment and then suddenly everything would change the next moment. At first, it felt predictable, but after a while I was going minute by minute, never knowing what to expect.
It shares some elements with other dystopian books, especially "The Hunger Games", but all-in-all, it was a pretty unique experience. It was far more thrilling than THG, though they both focus the element of survival.
At first, I wasn't happy with the narrator, but as the story went on I came to realize that his style fit the main character's moods perfectly. He was a little dull, but when the story picked up he racked up the suspense well.
I think my most extreme reactions were the couple of times that I was literally yelling in frustration when there was something very bad happening and it seemed like the characters
weren't thinking things through. That was how much I grew to care about the main character. I was literally talking to him, sympathizing with him and gasping when he makes a new realization.
Overall, this was a great story and I can't wait for more.
This was really boring and awkward. I love Demetri Martin, but it's just not like his show/standup. It might have been better in text. His narration was drab and uninspired.
