Darrow and I had a rough start. Now that I've finished the book, I understand why the beginning was important. But it was a slow start. I was not interested in the underground Mars life of the Reds, but when Darrow wakes up amongst new friends the book really started moving. It went in a direction I did not expect and I finally understood why so many people were comparing it to The Hunger Games . Hopefully the wait for the next book isn't TOO long!

A great read for fans of The Hunger Games, Ender's Game, or people that like books.
