Continue your quest by taking the test

Yes, but what test? What test was I supposed to take? The Kobayashi Maru? The Pepsi Challenge? Could the clue have been any more vague?”

Molly Talbert I just started this one! As a major sci-fi fan girl, I'm already loving it!

message 2: by Sam (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sam That's great! It's an awesome book for sci-fi fans so I hope you enjoy the rest of it! :)

Molly Talbert I just finished it and I loved it! So much fun, yet slightly disturbing! It was great!

message 4: by Sam (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sam Yay! So happy you enjoyed it! It's amazing, right?! :D

Molly Talbert Yes! And it was much more complex than I was expecting, mainly the things concerning their society. I understand the hype now!

Jessica This was definitely my fave book of 2011 - I loved just absolutely everything about it! Awesome review!

I keep almost starting this one. I'm afraid it won't live up to my unfairly high expectations :P.

message 8: by Sam (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sam Jessica, thanks! It's definitely one of my favourites too.

Ace, start it soon! I loved it but I actually didn't have very high expectations when I started it. ;) I can't wait to see what you think.

I think I will. I am in the middle of Wool right now (which I should have been able to finish in one sitting, but life is always getting in the way), but I don't have anything picked out for my next read.

message 10: by Sam (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sam Wool sounds really good. It's gotten some great reviews. Are you enjoying it so far?

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

It's very reminiscent of Fahrenheit 451 (at least to me), but I really like it. I was too sleepy last night to read much, so I'm only a few chapters in, but the world-building is done well. I can visualize the scenery and I'm intrigued by the characters.

Jessica I read the first 4 Wool last year, but have not gotten into the 5th one yet. They are pretty good. The first one I would give like 3.5 to 4 stars, Wool 2 I would give maybe 3 stars and then Wool 3 and Wool 4 would get a strong 5 stars from me - he definitely got better with each book (except for book 2 - that didn't do it for me for some reason - I think I just didn't much like the main character in that one). They are really awesome though and worth the read :)

Sam Thanks, Jessica. I didn't realise it was a series. :) I'm glad to hear it got better as it went on - that's not always the case with a series.

Jessica Yeah, there are five in total :) each on is longer than the previous one, so they start of quite short, almost a short story and then get more toward being a novella. Definitely worth the read! I have been delaying book 5, even though I have it and I think it's because I don't want it to end lol...sometimes I do that with last books...I avoid them because I am not ready to accept there won't be anymore hahaaha.

message 15: by Sam (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sam That's the thing about the final book in a series! Though I am more of a dive-straight-in kind of person as I am super impatient - especially if the final book means I will have all my burning questions answered. :) I do regret it afterwards though as I always want more!
