really liked it
Read from July 04 to 06, 2012

I don't really read young adult novels, but I wanted to give it a shot. I really enjoyed this book, I finished it in about two days reading time. This book has so much suspense that I wanted to bash my head against the wall sometime. I guess that's the only reason why I kept reading on and on and didn't want to put it down.
So I'm not going to tell you what the novel is about, you can find it in the other reviews. But I'll tell you the pros and cons.

The pros are
-Suspense(seemed like that was the authors main focus)
-Great plot
-unexpected twists
-made you think

The cons are
-Could be better character development(a lot better)
-bothered me how the author played out his suspense at times(when thomas asked for answers, and NEVER got them. Just tell me the god damn answer.)
-poorly written(but then again it is a YA novel)

In the end I give this book 4/5 stars, cause it was a fun read. You felt sympathy for the characters at times, since the condition they were placed under. I believe this novel would be made into a good film.
