This book was too slow paced for me. I found myself dreading the start of a new scene as it would be endless description of every irrelevant detail of the scene, down to the dandruff on the medical examiner's coat. If you like a lot of flair and artistic scene setting, this may be the book for you. However, if you want a plot that moves along without telling you how worn the carpet is, or what color shoe laces a passer by has, this would not be the book for you.
The performer of this book was fantastic.
Great writing style, I liked how it really kept the reader guessing what the real story was without giving much away up front. Then revealing bits and pieces as it progresses to put the puzzle together. Unfortunately for me, the picture that came together in the end left me very unsatisfied. I know that is part of the draw of the book for many people, but for me it was a very unfulfilling end to the story. That's all I can say without spoilers.
Yes, I find dystopian stories interesting, this one was as well. While it is clearly a YA book, it does make one think a bit about our society and individual tendencies. They write in a way that keeps the story moving and don't spend too much time in teenage drama like Hunger Games did at times.
Hard to say without giving spoilers. I wish the main character had more time devoted to talking with her parents after all was revealed.
It does make me pause and think about people's core tendencies and how that forms our cultures and sub-cultures. It also makes me think about nature vs nurture in the people we become as adults.
It was a good overall, I saw the twist coming early in the book but that didn't make me stop listening as I hoped there would be another twist, but there was not. Entertaining enough to listen to or read on the beach or while on the treadmill.
Yes, I like her style and pace. I would try another of her books.
