I bought the audiobook and started it tonight. It's a reread and I'm already just as enthralled as the first time I read this! Shusterman has a way of sucking you in from the very beginning.

I cannot wait to read this one.

I'm so excited that Scythe finally won as BotM!! You'll love it! I hope. ;) Actually, so far, I haven't heard of anyone who hasn't enjoyed this.

YAY!!! It's about time ;) I loved this book. It reminded me a lot of Unwind in terms of the flawed, complex characters and overarching shadow that seems to fall over everything. Such a good read!

Once again, Shusterman created a world that really makes you think. I'm doing my best to read this reread slowly, because I want to stretch it out. But it's really hard not to immerse myself back into it. I'm catching a few more things this time around, especially in the journals from the beginning of the chapters.


Nancy (Paper_Addict) | 791 comments As much as I would like to start reading this book now, I probably won't get to it until later in the month. I have over committed myself as far as reading goes.

That's ok! I've had many months where I read the BotM several months later, but just popped on the thread when I finally finished to throw in my 2 cents. :)


Storm Arashi (StormArashi) | 1130 comments I feel extremely pleased that i already read this one so I can finally talk about it more with people. My bestie wants to read it so she's banned me from speaking spoilers.

Goodness I loved this book, like gosh that's easily one of my top 10 books. Who's everyone's favorites so far? Mine were Citra and Scythe Faraday.

Tough call, but probably Citra too :) She's tough and smart. I like that!

Citra's awesome plus she's funny as heck too.

I adore Rowan!


Sarah (geekymom13) | 26 comments I read the first 8 chapters back in January but had to take it back to the library. I'm starting up where I left off. I think I like Rowan the best so far. :)

I like that he's such a complex character. Shusterman is a master at crafting characters like him.
