really liked it

Great characters, great story. I don't normally read YA and have to temper my review accordingly, but this was a compelling story and I can understand why its so successful. I feel there are a few pacing issues (particularly in the conclusion) but overral a real page-turner. I feel the kids killing kids theme would be more suited to an adult novel with appropriately increased realism in the writing, but given the target audience this is purely my own taste; as it stands, you really feel for the main characters and though some of the scifi elements are a little woolly (though I'm sure this was a creative choice rather than a shortcoming) you care about what happens, so as far as I'm concerned this is a good story.
