really liked it

I really like this author, and have enjoyed his three other books. When I read about this in the newspaper, I had to read it because it sounded like it might be the "next big thing" (the publisher approached him and asked him to write this kind of book).

I did enjoy it. It was a good dystopian/post-apocalyptic kind of book. However, there were some problems with it (IMHO). One is the relationship between her and her boyfriend. Their affection for each other was just a little too much to the point that it became unbelievable. Also, it didn't really seem that a young adult would enjoy reading--the characters were young but they acted so much like adults that I don't know if teens would appreciate it (but that remains to be seen).

Overall, while I did enjoy it, I don't know if it's going to become big (of course, didn't someone say that about computers?). We will see what happens...
