Very impressive! I found myself reading this on my breaks at work and before bed whenever I had the chance; it took a while - as it's quite lengthy (another bonus for me) but it's ultimately one of those 'must reads' that we, as fans of the genre, are always searching for.

Shelves: dystopian
Good premise, kind of a poor man's Hunger Games, but the editing was atrocious! The book was replete with the continual misuse of words (past/passed, him/he, who/that, who/whom) as well as spelling, grammar and general editing mistakes. Did anyone read this before it went to print? And where was the world building? How in heavens did the world come to having this competition? Two stars for good action, and that's it.
