Read from July 27 to August 18, 2011

Didn't particularly care for the narrator and for a short YA book this seemed to take forever for me to finish. I've read The Giver which has similar themes but a literary, fairytale quality to it, and The Feed which takes the futuristic bubble suburb idea to the extreme. This story falls somewhere between the two in terms of the dystopic nature of the future society but wasn't as well written or clever as either of those. Lots of good ideas but I just felt it failed to deliver really - too many plot holes or convenient but unexplained answers (like the fact the main character only manages to do what he does because of his robot dog - a modified super clever dog that is technically illegal for him to have in the first place - but how it came to be modified or into his possession is just left as a huge blank). IDK, might be Ok for a "young" YA reader I guess.
