Agree. I think I'm on chapter 4? It doesn't actually say, but I'm still on day 1. Some neat tech so far too.

You beat me to it. It's a really stupid affectation.

Haha it's explained why he does it in the very next chapter I think, but it's still annoying even after knowing the reason.

Also I'm liking Kaya more and more.


Emily | 306 comments End of Day 100

Andorion (ruineleint) Day 50 - Chapter 18

So far this book is giving me an Ender's Game + Hunger Games vibe.

I like Kaya, so by the formula of a lot of YA books, there is either going to be a betrayal or a death.

Ooh I think that's the perfect description. Ender's Game/Hunger Games for sure!!

And true about the age thing. I was thinking that as well.


Emily | 306 comments Finished. Not sure what I think. There were a few things that bugged me and the supposed "twist" at the end was not all that surprising and kind of lame.

Also the ending kind of dragged a bit for me after (view spoiler)....Immediate thought is 3.5 stars but I'm going to sleep on it.


Andorion (ruineleint) Done and I agree with Emily.

Exactly. (view spoiler)

This is actually a salient problem with a bunch of YA books - a very strange world, with little to no explanation as to how it ended up like that. To me it always makes the story seem very shallow.

That's really too bad. Do you think they don't think that kids will notice or do you have a theory on this? I'm curious.

I finally finished. It was only OK for me as well.

Bummer. Are you going to continue with the next books?

I can't justify $11 for a Kindle copy or more for audio for this. If one of my libraries buys it in the next few months I'll read it then. If they don't I'll abandon the series.

Yea, same. My library has a copy so I might give it a go but I'm not in a hurry. There were things that I liked, but overall it was just ok for me as well.
