's review

it was ok
bookshelves: 1990s, dystopia, tbr-challenge-2023

This was disappointing. It was well written but the plot didn't move very quickly and even at the end when events came to a head, I felt little tension. The narration moves between first person and third person for no reason that I could see - we still only see events from one character's point of view. Some of the details of the government, the policies put in place were convincing but little else.
