I really enjoyed revisiting this blockbuster debut novel. It's creative and thoughtful, though the author does like to point out the obvious every now and then, which is something readers don't typically need (and that I didn't really pick up on the first couple of times I read this story).

I could have done without that, but overall, I still really enjoyed revisiting this classic YA dystopian novel, and I can't wait to reread the rest of the series. Each different character inspires different emotions, and I love seeing the ranges of humanity reflected in this world.

This will always hold a soft place in my heart, and now I want to rewatch the movie (even though they didn't get all of the castings right).
