i was rereading this to try to get a book done fast for BookTube-a-thon...less than ideal

Adi Happy to find people who think the same about this book... liked it at first, till I noticed all was wrong with it

it's got so much potential for fun-ness but it's just so nearly-offensive and weird!!!

my thought process the entire time
like
i wanted to punch america MULTIPLE times bc shes so DIMWITTED and i thought maxon might save the book BUT NO HES AS BAD AS HER SOMEONE END THIS
and
it
goes
on
for
three
books

Manjari No offense it doesn't get better. I read all 5 books even tho after book 2 I didn't think it would would get better. Honestly just read the series for yourself although I will warn you that I did not think this series got better 😂

livvingitup This is honestly the greatest and most entertaining review I've read in a long time


message 16: by Alexia (new)

Alexia seriously the dystopian setting was
dismal.....


message 17: by Fromeggtodragon (new)

Fromeggtodragon I remember reading it 4 years ago and really enjoying it. Now, I'm afraid to re-read it :,,)


message 18: by kimberlee (new)

kimberlee Your quotes make me never want to lay eyes on this book ever. The writing sounds horrific. It's on my TBR pile though so maybe one day when I feel like testing my strength to not throw things I'll give it a go.

it's like the quickest read in the history of time so there's that. but it's still horrible to get through
