Read from January 17 to 21, 2012

I had high expectations for this book. At first, it seemed like it was headed for a thrilling apocalyptic plot. Religious allusions are heavy-handed and mixed in with anti-religious tones, I kept looking for where it all fit in with teen angst, domestic unrest, and the destruction of language. Marcus's writing is poetic, fun to read, at times, but it just kept going and going and going . . . nowhere. Disappointing to say the least.
