Anna Met Kevin today, nice fella. It's worth a read, then?

Karina Yes...the tone made me a little unsure at first as it's quite teenqueenbee stuff, but set in an Irish dystopia - some good ideas, but some gaping gaps in logic too. A curiosity, really; interesting because it's Irish!

Jennifer I was so disappointed with this - I really wanted to love it! The bones of an epic story are there but it's badly written with terrible characters and weak plot. Will not be recommending it. Sorry, Kevin.

Karina Yep, you're a little harsher than I would be Jen - I think you're right that it has great potential but...
BTW, have you read Divergent yet?

Jennifer No, I haven't read it but I'm dying to! I'm taking 2 weeks off in June and I have it on my summer read list :)
