I gave it a 5/5 stars because the story was so enticing and Erin Morgensterns writing was wonderful.
The characters were both relatable and lovable, the writing style was captivating and entertaining, the story was something new I've never read before and the fact that the book was written from different views and different years made it all more interesting and enticing.
The copy that I read had no synapsis and I thought it was a bit weird but I don't know how to sum up such a story on the back. It's about a circus at night and it'c fantastic. Like, that's all I can say really.
OH MAN, OH MAN! THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! 5/5 STARTS! Okay, I went into this book without knowing a thing, I didn't even know it was historical fiction. IOH MAN, OH MAN! THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! 5/5 STARTS! Okay, I went into this book without knowing a thing, I didn't even know it was historical fiction. I borrowed it from my school library and when I looked it up on goodreads I thought I was not going to like it. I've never read any historical fiction before and for some reason I thouhgt I would dislike this book, but it was sooooooooo gooooooooood!
I flew through this book, I read almost 100 pages/day which is a lot for me. This book was really exciting and I felt like the mix of religion and the time period mixes perfectly! I really enjoyed Libba Brays writing style and they way she described scenarios. Throughout this book the characters developed into their true selfs and I really enjoyed the characters overall, except for Sam. I had an idea what was going to happen in the begginning of the book but that theory soon flew out the window, this book was full of plot-twists.
I felt like the pacing of this book was amazing, it was just perfect. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
The rest of my review is hidden because of spoilers (view spoiler)[ For some reason I HATED Sam, I couldn't read parts of the book with a straight face. He was just annoying, but thankfully he wasn't a main character. I like the fact that we actually get to know what is going on behind all the characters, I felt so sorry for Theta when I found out what she had went through. And do not forget Jericho!
Evie got on my nerves in the begginning of the book mainly because I thought of her as a spoiled brat, they're never fun to be around. The only character I felt was a bit bland was Isaiah, I hope Libba Bray elaborates his gift in the next book. Memphis felt like one of my friends and it was so hard not to picture him in the book. I enjoyed Memphis' perspective and how he and Theta get together was just so romantic yet actionpacked.
The night of Solomon's Comet was terrifying! My heart was beating so fast! The house sound horrendous! I had no idea it was going to end the way it did. I hope Libba Bray uses the characters' gifts in the next book, all I got to know was that they had gifts but they didn't explore their true power. Well, except for Evie.
The and had me in questions for many hours. Why did Evie convince Jericho to kiss her? Why did he kiss her? She made up with Mabel, why did she do it? WHY!?
It was an amazing read and I want the sequel to come out right now! 5/5 stars! (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

I really enjoyed reading this, it has kept me up in the late hours of the night because it was almost impossible to put down.
This book is a part of a trilogy but I think it is just fine as a stand-alone, I will comtinue and hopefully complete the trilogy because I'm curious as to how the world develops. This book was written from thee different perspectives (some more, but not vital characters), it kept the story alive and exciting. Even though thing doesn't go to plan fot the characters the story was just as interensting.
When I first read the synopsis I imagined it much more gory than it actually was. There are scenes that are extremely gory in reality but they way they were written through the characters made it almost enjoyable to read. I sound like a sociopath but I was really intrigued as to how they.... did the procedure.
This book was a rollercoaster of emotions and it made me re-evalute how I view overpopulation, the medical procedures we do today and their consequences, freedom and parents' power over their children.
If I had my own copy I would definitely read it again and reccomend it to my friends irl....more

I have a problem where I can't marathon a series/trilogy because I'm too attached to the old characters. In the later books obviously characters change but I couldn't deal with it this time. It was hard, or I'm just being a brat.
I tried to read it directly after The Hunger Games and that didn't work out, I didn't like where the story was going. The 2nd time I stopped halfway because of too much schoolwork and the 3rd time I flew through it in 2 DAYS.
I felt like it was a interesting and mind-boggling follow up to the Hunger Games and I really enjoyed it. So far this is my favourite book in the trilogy (no, I haven't read Mockingjay yet)There were plot twists I never saw coming and some which I felt were overdone. I really like the Katniss' innner monolouge and how she interacts with other characters.
I finished the book only 3 hours before I saw the movie and I was BLOWN AWAY. The movie actually represented the book as opposed to the first movie....more
This book man, ooooh it was soo goood!! I gave this book 5/5 stars because I thought the topics it brought up was executed in a extremely polished wayThis book man, ooooh it was soo goood!! I gave this book 5/5 stars because I thought the topics it brought up was executed in a extremely polished way and I flew through this book. I read it in two sittings. The writing style was not something I was used to but I was able to adatp fairly quickly.
The way George Orwell narrorates the book gave it a dark feeling that really fit the story, the stream of consciousness through out the book was refreshing! I read half of this book a long time ago for my english class but I didn't remeber what was going on so I decided to give it another try.
The rest if my review is hidden because of spoilers. (view spoiler)[ I felt there was something wrong with Napoleon the first moment I read the way Orwell described him, I got this teffifying image of a bore in my head and it stuck thoughout the entire book.
My thoughts throughout the book was "Why isn't anyone stopping Napoleon?" because to me it felt as is they just want along and didn't hink for themselves, which they did do in the last few pages. This book made me both ahppy and angry at the same time, angry at Napoleon and happy for the rest of the animals, especially after they scared Mr. Jones away. But I also felt anger towards the other aminals, why didn't they say something about how Napoleon was striving for something completely different from what the old Major had described to them. They were living in a nightmare, not in a dream, as described to them.
This book was thought provoking and made me re-think those who are in power and how fast things can spiral out of control. (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

I gave it 5/5 stars because it affected my but I don't know if it's positive or negative. I love the story but the eding wasn't enough for me. I wanted to know what happend after! At first it really bothered me that the book was in letter-form because I felt like it was narrowing my perspective of the story, but as I read more and more I started to really like it. The way Charlie chooses his words are simple, yet effective.
All I can say is you need to read this book if you enjoy contemporary reads.
I read this book in two days, which is fast for me....more
