Thank you to Alix of HEETR for sending me this book. I was hoping I would be ready for a dystopia book since I absolutely loved Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood, but this one didn’t quite work for me. I realize I was in the middle of a reading slump and perhaps I was only ultra cranky and picky but a few things tripped me up enough that I put the book aside. I also abandoned The Woman in White and flipped through the beginning pages of A Dog’s Purpose but without succumbing back into any kind of reading-nonslump. Oh, and I had a new puppy to chase:
HOWEVER… I want to end this Thoughts-Post (non-review) on a positive note!
My parents came to visit for Thanksgiving so I handed my father this book to read! He devoured it. He said it was good.
I asked, “Was it compelling? Enthralling?” and he said, “Yes.” He also gave a quick recap which I failed to jot to paper but something along the lines of ‘dire future possibilities’.
This book is the second in a series but I don’t think it matters if you read the first. Dad didn’t seem to think it suffered by not having read the first.
SO. There you have it.
He said to give it THREE SLICES OF PIE.
