did not like it
bookshelves: 2011, dystopia, young-adult, apocalyptic-types, the-big-letdown, cover-lust, science-fiction, blech

I'm sorry but bad, bad, baaaaad book. Way too much teen angst over "who should I choose?" -- the nice, safe boy? or the boy who makes my toes curl (and my genetically modified robot parts short out?)

Hmmmmm.... Do I care??? NO! Too much "telling" not enough "showing". Characters fall flat on the page, the tension is superficial, and the "dystopian" circumstances are a joke. Tepid, derivative teen romance packaged and sold as a futuristic dystopian drama. It is not.

Best thing about it is the cover. My advice: skip it and watch The Terminator movies.
