"I just couldn't continue. Seriously. How many sensitivities can one book trigger in the first four chapters. Astounding."

Really? I had someone else RAVE about it to me. Now I'm curious.

The language was annoying as hell. I understand an author wanting to create his/her own world, but this took it to the extreme, IMO. And the language largely surrounded pregnancy and reproduction, for which I think we have a perfectly good vocabulary. Maybe I was just in a particular mood when I tried to read it, but the idea of making babies a commodity and encouraging teenage girls to have them to sell to the highest bidder just didn't sit well with me. Yes, that may very well be the goal of the author, and it would all be beautifully resolved in the end, but I just couldn't take the journey.
I look forward to seeing what you think of it.

Also, if you want to borrow it, I have it on Kindle and would be happy to lend it to you.
