Although I felt the first half of the book was slow, I thought it was needed to establish the basis of the characterization- and plot- arcs which make this book so powerful. After all, to show an "awakening," we really need to enter into the world of sleep with the characters, and we do. Cassia's world is well ordered, perfect in a superficial way, but the calling within her is to go deeper, to enter the messy and muddled. I loved this about the novel and know these strong characters and their moving stories will stay with me for a long time. And I imagine Condie will be inundated for a request for a sequel, although I was content with the ending.
