Read in May, 2011

I thought this book was OK. I love distopias and this one had a good premise. I love that there was a society that controlled what everyone was doing, and that there were pills that people had to take. But there was just something missing. A chunk of excitement. I think it spent too much time on some plots and not enough time on other plots that needed more attention. I also think the 2nd book will be all about things leading to rebellion and then the 3rd book will be the rebellion. Which is too similar to the Hunger Games for me. Some of the characters were great though and I do want to see what happens to them.

Ann Thanks for your review! :) I love books like that, too, so maybe I'll keep this one on my TBR shelf (just not in the No. 1 position ;-> )

Lisa Vegan Yes, thanks, Angie. It's just now waiting for me at the library, and I don't have time to read it now, and too late for the group discussion during May at least, so I'll leave it on my to-read shelf but I'm not going to read it now.

Angie Yea you guys may want to pass on this one if you have other books you've been dying to read!

Thanks, Angie. I'm overbooked at the moment and it won't be May anymore, so if I do read this it won't be anytime soon.
