While I generally dislike dystopian fiction, I enjoyed this story. My real complaints are due to poor editing and the author's insistence to always write in the present tense. No one in this book "said" anything; it's always "says." Which seemed tedious after awhile. With regard to editing, someone should have caught "nauseous" instead of "nauseating," and the numerous instances of "try and" instead of "try to," (though one example of the latter did sneak through).
