it was amazing

This book was amazing! It seemed to get off to a slow start but I loved Ally Condie's writing style and the way she kept me wanting to turn the page to find out what happens next.

I was cautioned about reading this book after having read Delirium, by Lauren Oliver (a book which I also gave 5 stars to). I actually think I like this one a little better. I still LOVE the passion and intensity of Delirium, this one was written "better". (I am not sure I know how to explain why I like it better but I will give it a shot.) I think the twists and turns within the story made me really feel like I was reading a book along the lines of The Giver. It had a lot of meat to it. One where I will definitely pick up the next book in the series.
