I was worried about picking up this book because so many people were bashing it as a rip off of 'the giver'. I could not find many reviews that praise..Show More »d this particular story. I have not read the giver so i cannot agree with them, but i did read this book and i can say that i loved it. The structure of the society was not as big a part of the story for me as the events surrounding the characters was.
The book takes place in a dystopian society and you are immersed in it so much that when Cassia begins to open her eyes it is subtle. I really enjoyed that fact because in a lot of YA books the main character is really blunt with their epiphany. I enjoyed the way it was written and how realistic it felt even though the environment is like nothing we have experienced. I am excited for the next installment, but if the book were to end here i would not be dissatisfied. The main character is strong and she really kept the story interesting. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a story of teenage rebellion and strong characters.
Book one was better than this one... but, it sets up a good story line for the third book. I personally prefer one narrator and the back and forth na..Show More »rration for me was not enjoyable. I did like this book and do look forward to the third in the series.
