** spoiler alert ** I thought this book was really good. I thought it was a little more slow-paced than the other two, but that's probably because it takes place over the course of three days rather than more than a week. I liked how Astrid made mistakes and didn't seem so perfect anymore. I also liked how Sam was breaking down from stress and bad memories. It wasn't my favorite because my favorite characters (Caine, Diana, and Lana) weren't in it very much. I thought the scenes showing the outside world were interesting, although I'm not entirely convinced they were true, based on the title of the book and the fact that Orsay was responsible for them. Mary's insanity was not entirely unexpected but definitely unsettling, and it seems like the Day Care has very bad luck with its workers taking the poof. There was a lot of death, but mostly minor characters. I was disappointed in the lack of mutated animals in this book. I liked the new characters introduced, like the island kids, Penny, Jill, and Nerezza. I felt like the plot involving Caine's group and the island kids and the plot involving Sam's group, the Human Crew, Orsay, and Drake were too seperate and should have come together at some point. Also, I thought that the canibalism scenes were just a little too creepy. I love Caine and Diana's relationship, though, and I was thrilled to see it develop, with her finally admitting that she loves him and everything. Overall, Lies was a very enjoyable book to read and I'm definitely a fan of the series. I would definitely recomend it.
