I think this book was maybe a little over-hyped. It was good, not unmemorable, but I wasn't particularly moved by it. A lot happened; a lot of drama and disaster and tragedy and everything else, but those events didn't have the impact that one would ...more

I liked the story but not the story telling. There was so much internal dialog, and I felt the narrative was bogged down by it. Instead of having the grandma ruminate for an entire page on hiroshi's tournament, why not just let us read about the acti ...more

Shades of To Kill a Mockingbird for sure (Rennie's mom and the mob, the entire denouement, hello!) but I thought it was a great read in spite of (or maybe because of?) that.

This is really probably a 3.5, but that's not an option. I'd give it a 4, but I'm not personally a fan of the gore.

C.S. Lewis
“And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Zora Neale Hurston
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Terry Pratchett
“If you want to change a whole people, then you start with the girls. It stands to reason: they learn faster, and they pass on what they learn to their children.”
Terry Pratchett, Snuff
