did not like it
bookshelves: dystopian-post-apocalyptic, fiction, didn-t-finish
Read in February, 2010

I made it 80 pages then finally admitted that I didn't care. The last 30 pages I had been skimming anyway, hoping that my interest would set in. The author spent too much time on trivialities and not enough time on the meat of the story—like explaining why the world is in such bad shape. Constant references are made to past events but never explained—an omission that was a constant source of frustration for me.
