it was ok

I'm not going to re-cap the events of the book, everybody else has already done it. Let me start off by saying this wasn't a bad book. I thought the premise was original and very interesting.

My problem was that I never actually connected to it and I'm not sure why. It felt like I was listening to the story, but not LIVING IN the story (if that makes sense). My favorite books are the ones that I fall completely into, where the world of the story becomes MY world while I'm reading, and this one just never sucked me in like that.

I also didn't 'feel' the connection between Meridian and Tens, I didn't feel any attraction between them at all, it felt like they'd just decided to go ahead and be together since they'd been told they were supposed to, not because there was any overwhelming compulsion or attraction between them.

Also, while I understand religious fanaticism exists in abundance, I had a hard time with the ENTIRE town completely under Perimo's black thumb. Esp. with women and babies dying, pregnant women being forced to eat only bread and water and NOBODY in their right mind questioning it?

As I said, this isn't a bad book, it just didn't capture this reader the way that had been hoped for.
