really liked it
bookshelves: favorites

this is a book that I want to buy and put on my shelf of all time favorite reads. it is one of those books that you will want to re-read every couple of years. it stirred up so many emotions.....like reading Jane Austin pride and prejudice ( the only Austin book I love and own.) I hushed my family and gave them the hand (stop talking and go away) while reading this book. it makes you smile, you laugh,you cry (i hate crying and sad things but love this book). seriously could not stop reading it. now I want to reread austins persuasion to see if I missed out on a great read there....
the only reason i did not rate it high was the storyline of good people vs. the bad was cheesy and futuristic ideas were not that great. true sci fi and dystopain (?) fans will find this book lacking. yet having said that I think those who do not like sci fi will not like this book cause it us so out there...example: my mother in law loves Jane Austin books, LSD and bible (historical strong women characters) fiction books and Anne of green whatever books..and matched series..but did not like harry potter, hunger games and twilight due to to violence and ? evils in storyline .so I am thinking she will not like this because if similar reasons...
sad cause I love sharing my good book gems with fellow book lovers. I am looking foward to reading more from this author.
oh and I think the title is lame ( title need to by no more than 2 to 3 words max) and cover is not conducive to what the story tells and makes you feel.
