Really 2.5 stars, but I'm rounding up.

I didn't like the characters (there was no growth--VI stays angry and pissed off throughout the entire book) and it took me a long time to figure out what was going on in this book. I think it could all be tied together in the next one, but I don't think I want to read the next one to find out.

The writing bothered me, mostly because there were a million 1-liners that got SUPER annoying. Imagine a whole bunch of "yeah, that didn't happen" and "yeah, that wasn't true" on every. single. page. Sooooooooooo annoying.

Some people might really like this book, but I much prefer the other dystopia books out there (like Delirium and The Hunger Games)
