it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult-dystopian
Read from October 05 to 07, 2011

Totally loved this book in so many ways. It's a wild ride for sure, fast paced but it's also skilfully written, not just an action driven extravaganza.
Thoughtful readers will see that there are many layers here, moral issues like the consequences of inaction on global warming, what to do about our dwindling natural resources, the powerlessness of young people, greed, corruption, and a perverse desire for immortality that's also reflected in today's society. Go dystopia!
And it's like it was written for today as people protest around the world about unequal wealth. It's fantastic to read a YA book that's gripping but also has much deeper issues and deals so well with important themes of exploitation and alienation.
Lily is a courageous, also compassionate character easy to relate to, fabulous role model.
Please read this book.
