It is a super weak way to get people to buy the next book by dropping off in the middle of the climax. This book was barely a full act in a story and then the author drops it mid action? You got five books worth of credits out of me when I maybe should have spent three. I won’t be spending any more. I’ll read the synopsis somewhere. To find out what happens. I’m done with this series.

Hailed by Lena Dunham as an "essential (and hilarious) voice for women", Lindy West is ferociously witty and outspoken, tackling topics as varied as pop culture, social justice, and body image. Her empowering work has garnered a coast-to-coast audience that eagerly awaits Shrill, her highly anticipated literary debut.

If there’s anyone who can prevent a bar or restaurant from going belly-up, it’s Jon Taffer. Widely considered the greatest authority in the food and beverage, hotel, and hospitality industries, he runs the biggest trade show in the business and has turned around nearly 1,000 bars and at least that many restaurants.

This is a must read for anyone in the service industry. You do not need to just be in bars or restaurants. I am in the pet industry and I have taken away eight Honda of information that I'm going to implement and can't wait to implement.

In 2022, the United States commissioned a group of scientists to experiment with genetic mutations. Their goal was to create a serum that would alter the human genetic code, making the subject stronger and faster. But not only had they created a super serum, but also an airborne virus. By 2025, 75 percent of the world's population had perished. Ally is an Ordinary - a human who is immune to the virus. She lives in a settlement outside the City with her mother and twin brother, but lately it doesn't seem to be enough.

It was similar to the other dystopian trilogies.
I just personally wasn't thrilled with the readers voice. If you liked divergent you will like this.
