it was amazing
bookshelves: library, dystopian
Recommended to Jillian by: Madeline
Read from March 19 to 21, 2012

A reimagining of The Scarlet Letter set in a dystopian near future where technology serves the conservative totalitarian state and the corrections system has undergone a radical shift. Hillary Jordan writes beautifully and deftly handles both the dystopian world-building and the protagonist’s self-discovery. The comparisons to Margaret Atwood are accurate, and I can’t think of much higher praise.
