For me, it took a while to get into the story and relate to the characters - about a quarter of the way into the book. But after that, I was all in. I felt the losses the characters felt, and their passions and their plight.
The end was satisfying and left me thinking about the characters and the world for days after finishing the book.
I enjoyed The Giver very much. This book, though similar, built up certain suspicious circumstances in great detail. But the climax simply consisted of Kira identifying that these things were happening. That was it, it was the end.
I really would have enjoyed some kind of outcome. After having discovered some terrible things going on, it would have been nice for Kira to be able to achieve some kind of resolution to the situation, or at least an explanation.
Perhaps the third book will continue to bring it together - other reviewers have said as much. I'll see, and am looking forward to that one.
