Didn't enjoy this one as much as the first, but it was a worthwhile read. Her prose is still lovely.

Like many middle installments of trilogies, the plot lacked the intensity of the first. Somehow the 'call to adventure' is so much exciting and engaging than the 'road of trials'...

Quotes Julia Liked

Ally Condie
“Everyone has something of beauty about them. But loving lets you look, and look, and look again. You notice the back of a hand, the turn of a head, the way of a walk. When you first love, you look blind and you see it all as the glorious, beloved whole, or a beautiful sum of beautiful parts. But when you see the one you love as pieces, as why's, you can love those parts too, and it's a love at once more complicated and more complete.”
Ally Condie, Crossed
