Oct 18, 2015 rated it it was amazing
Fast-paced, exciting and full of twists! This dystopian sci-fi captured me from page one. With it's gritty tone, dark sense of humor and colorful gallery of characters it's really got it all. The characters are excellentally narrated and hard not to hate or love. The dialogue between the characters is absolutely brilliant and really funny at times. The story is both original and fast-paced, making it really hard to put down. This book is a true gem! Highly recommended! Pick up a copy today! ...more
