bookshelves: dystopian-fiction, sci-fi
Read from January 25 to 26, 2010

What a big disappointment. The second half of the book is more interesting than the first half but not by much.

Even when I don't compare it to other Dystopian Fiction/Sci-Fi books that I believe are must reads, such as Unwind, the Skinned series and the Uglies series, this book falls short. I was very surprised concidering it won the LA Times Book Prize in 2002. Also, surprising concidering the topic and how much could have been (should have been) done with it.

The author doesn't reveal enough about the main characters to make me feel much for them and the characters seem so vapid, which in part is a consequence of technology but it's difficult to read vapid for more than a few pages.
