Fine, I'll admit to enjoying parts (a few twists at the end) but seriously? Don't get why this book was hyped when it was released back in 2011. Seriously don't get it; was it a bad year for YA dystopia... jk, are there any hyped YAs apart from contemp romance that isn't dystopia these days?

Can't go higher than 2 stars. Mostly it was details that, put together, doesn't make the story/world-building hold up.

We're at the point where:

1. Plot is obvious. (Want you villain to be hidden from the reader? Don't leave neon markers pointing to the villain.)

2. (Fictional) orgies are boring.

3. The space mission to send humans to a new planet? Whoever constructed the plan sounds like he/she must've been an idiot.

4. Amy and Elder must be blind. No one can be this oblivious.

5. I start to rant.

On another note, I'm disliking the stylistic approach here where the author use space between the lines, like

this line is important

And this line is meant for dramatic effect

And this line is dripping in emotion.

And then we go back to a regular flow because the following lines aren't as important emotionally. I hate this, because it feels like the author needs to point out what is important. Show, don't tell.

"That Elder died," Eldest says. His face is dark, set. I glance up at the doctor. His face is downcast, the folds of his crow's feet crinkling deeper.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that dude's not really dead, is he?

Already bored by Elder's -- yup, that's his name -- insta-worship of Amy. And I mean worship in a rather literal way here.

Sooooo... Ed and Hassan are the worst workers ever? Spilling secrets about their work/the mission to a strangers And when they (probably) knew said stranger could hear them?


You know, people have been fired for less.

I think I'm a sucker for books set in space but I'm absolutely loving this so far.
