I loved it and then I hated it and then I would put it down and pick it up again only to love what was going on. A total and complete mind game this book was and I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry be pissed thatb I kept reading or weep with joy.
Anyone ever read a book like that?
I mean this book was so crazy it had three virtues you had to live by or die. The three virtues are Honesty, Bravery, and Discovery. Really..............
Emmeline aka Em is living in her colony preparing for the long winter. She is about to turn of age to marry and has been proposed to but she is considered stained marked by evil so guys and girls stay away from her because she is labeled. Then something odd happens as she and her best friend Tom discover human bones by the river. Em becomes curious as to what is beyond the river and told never to go and look.
Well we all know what happens when we are told not to do something and this is where the story gets crazy and interesting all at once. What she finds in the woods beyond the river will forever change her and the colony.
On a side note there where some great characters in this book. Tom is Em's best friend. Kane is a shearer and is Em's friend. Brother Stockham who runs the colony, and last but not least Brother Jameson who I will spoile it is an asshole!...more
Okay let me start out by saying that I love Ally Condie and her writing. She has a way of grabbing you and pulling you into the world and keeping youOkay let me start out by saying that I love Ally Condie and her writing. She has a way of grabbing you and pulling you into the world and keeping you there until you can't turn the pages anymore because the book is done.
I was taken at betrayal and underworld so when I started reading and found out what one twin did to the other and how the parents were dead I knew I was going to go on one hell of a journey and journey is what I got.Can you imagine living with your twin and doing everything together and one day your twin decides she is going to leave you? Man that is what happened to Rio.
In this story it flows so smoothly that as I was reading I could hear the artificial air breathing in and out and thinking about what a sirens voice sounds like. See because one of the twins is gifted with a gift so rare that she shares it with no one but her sister. Then when things go wrong one of the sisters will go on the hunt for the truth and what she finds out is more mystery and intrigue.
This is a great story and a must read coming out the end of October. Go out and get it!...more
