Thank you to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for allowing me to review this book.

It took me a while to get into the book, it was a long book (almost 400+ pages) and at times it seemed slow and dragged out to me. There was a lot of science fiction and I think that's what people mean when they say 'it was weird' or 'the weird parts'. While I'm not normally a huge fan of sci-fi, this was different. It was not my favorite dystopian novel, I did enjoy it.

In this highly original post-apocalyptic novel the characters were likable and well developed. There was so much details in this book, I think that's why it took so long to get into the book.

Even though it was a YA book, I think this is for older teens, this is very dark with violence disturbing elements, and death. It was creepy and compelling at the same time.

Film rights for the novel Pure have been acquired by Fox 2000, it should be an interesting movie.
