bookshelves: dystopia, young-adult
Read in October, 2010

I kept wanting to like this book, hoping it would be a transitional book to Jose Saramago's "Blindness." Instead, I got bogged down with the dreams that kept getting described in detail. I hardly care about real dreams, let alone fictionalized ones. Even though the author created a good reason for the dreams at the end, it was too little too late for me. I think the book DOES have a satisfying ending, though, with a nice hook to the next one. Perhaps if I had read the first title in this series I would have enjoyed this more; I'm not sure. I loved the concept of one sighted person finding himself among the seeing for the first time, and the author keeps the writing very clean and uncontroversial, but I think the plot flow felt a little patchy.
