More like 3-3.5...I rounded up because I cannot decide...mixed feelings, ok?

I'm probably (definitely) in the minority when I say that I do not love this book. It's good, absolutely! I liked reading it as well. Strong protagonist, interesting premise, action-packed story line, etc. etc. Good stuff right there. However, it just didn't amaze me. Maybe it was the hype that ruined it, I don't know. I was expecting it to be some masterpiece of a novel...but it's just another YA novel. The writing is very simple, the idea is not entirely original (minor problem only), and the plot is rather predictable. I appreciate the really good things about this novel, but at the same time I can't say I'm a die-hard fan of it. Though, I will read the rest of the series to see where it goes.
