This book was thrilling! I have been trying to think of the right word to describe this book, something to do it justice, and thrilling is really the only word that came to mind. This book seriously just kept building and building and blindsiding me and surprising me up until the very last word on the very last page. I was on the edge of my seat, and I loved it!

I will say that I was a little confused at first. The story just jumps right into this crazy, elaborate, completely different world, and it took me a little while to get my bearings reading about it. But once I did, I was entranced by Incarceron. By the prison, by the book, by the writing- all of it!

I liked all the characters. I liked how nice and determined Finn was, and how Brave Attia was, and how feisty Claudia was. But even more than that, I was fascinated by the world. The world is what drew me into the book and kept me interested. The prison was crazy! It was so creepy and scary and horrible, and yet it was such a puzzle. Kind of like the arenas in The Hunger Games.

The "outside" was equally fascinating to me. Everything was created, nothing is real it seems. It was just so cool to read about this insanely intricate and unfathomable world that Catherine Fisher created. She did such an amazing job! It seemed like a beautiful work of art to me. I could not put it down. I made the mistake of bringing this book with me to work one day, and I was so absorbed in it that I did not even notice the customers standing right in front of me sometimes. (oops)

I cannot wait to read the sequel! I need to run to the library ASAP. (stupid book buying ban!)
