really liked it

I really enjoyed SWIPE. As a kid who watched the movie "Thief in the Night" and had nightmares for years afterward, I'm always looking for contemporary tales of the tribulation. Angler does a great job of weaving in technology with end-time predictions in a way that won't turn off people who don't know/believe in those prophecies.

I did think of Matched in this book a few times, especially when Logan's sister doesn't come back from getting her Mark - it's so similar to what happens in Condie's book. But other than that, the two plots aren't similar. Logan isn't driven by his teenage hormones - he wants to know what happened to his sister and why he's suddenly being targeted by the Markless. I have a feeling I know where this is going in book 2 and hope I'm right. :)
