It was very well written and I found it poetic in a way that I can't explain, but I had to read it for school so that made it less enjoyable. But if you're a freshman and just want to get it out of the way, then do it.


I would recommend this to: Those who enjoy reading those books their english teachers pick for them.

Ahh, dystopian trilogy, we meet again. Only this time, instead of finding myself trapped inside the mind of a somewhat annoying teenage girl, we get to experience it from the male perspective!! I cannot tell you how much of a breath of fresh air that was. Aside from John Green, I don't get a whole lot of male perspective YA books, so yay! Not only that, but the plot was truly creative and engrossing. I honestly had no clue what was going to happen next and although the grievers freaked me out, I was ready for the second book as soon as I closed the e-cover. Also, the boys came up with their own cuss words. I thought it was funny and I pictured them as a 1960s greaser gang.


I would recommend this to: People who love teen fiction romance books like I do
