really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, fiction, ya
Read from June 22 to 30, 2011

I like this a lot even though it's another distopian novel- I wasn't expecting it considering Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver's other book= in a field of many. I kept thinking of Scott Westerfeld's Uglies while reading this- same idea- new order changing your brain when you reach a certain age with rebels running away to a rustic "forest" life to escape. I like the way Oliver (careful-spoiler alert!) used the idea that the 'delerium' or deisease was LOVE! We are getting to the point where YA authors are reaching to created different distopias, however- like I said, this one was very reminicent of others- not as original as some.
