I was disappointed in this book. Maybe it is because there has been so much hype about it. Maybe I've read too many dystopian novels in the past couple of years. I felt like it really didn't bring anything new to the dystopian arena. This book was ab...more

Just couldn't get into this book and decided I have better things to do with my time than finish the book. It was just too hard to follow. When writing a completely strange world, it is important to help your reader follow you and believe you.

I enjoyed the blending of her previous two books. The story was well-written and though-provoking. I love how Lois Lowry writes series--each book can stand on it's own.

This book was sad in the end, and I didn't care for the ending. It was fitting, b...more

As with most series I have been reading lately, I feel the last one isn't nearly as good as the first.

There were some major problems for me in this book, though. First, I felt like she did some foreshadowing in the first two books that were never an...more

Very interesting post apocalyptic book. I found the premise interesting and loved the setting in New York. The book was somewhat long, though. I felt some of the technical details could have been left out or shortened. All in all I will probably read...more

C.S. Lewis
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Corrie ten Boom
“Trying to do the Lord's work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.”
Corrie ten Boom

Jude Deveraux
“There are no new stories. It all depends on how you handle them. In romances the characters are going to fall in love with each other; you know that when you see the syrupy cover. It's how get there that's the fun.”
Jude Deveraux

Corrie ten Boom
“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.”
Corrie ten Boom

Corrie ten Boom
“If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest.”
Corrie ten Boom
