I didn't like it

While reading this book, there were spots where I couldn't put it down because I wanted to know what happened next and there were other spots were I really couldn't care less what happened to the boys (and girl) in the Glade. In the end, I think I just really...

Wonderful book!

This was a wonderful book with a wonderful story. It shows how you can see your flaws through others and make changes for the better. I highly recommend it.

Ok Book

I found the book to be entirely too slow and the random inclusion of words that the author made up just annoyed me. I liked the concept though and the characters weren't terrible.

Ok book

The concept was ok, but I found the story to be too slow. The book contained strong writing, but I saw with a few typos and grammatical issues.

Disappointed

I was really disappointed in this book. The first two-thirds of the book were insanely slow and then the last third felt like the author was rushing to finish the story.

Boring

This book was insanely slow. Nothing really happened until almost a 1/3 of the way through the book. In addition, I didn't find any of the characters likeable at all. I wanted to smack Cody upside his head throughout the vast majority of the book and Clea wasn't much better....

Loved this book!

I loved this book! It had a great story and great characters! The lessons within it are some that have been lost to today's society. I highly recommend this book.

Not my type of book

I didn't enjoy this book. It had too many made up words that I had to keep track of as well as too many descriptions. I prefer my books to be either a nice mix of descriptions and characterizations or heavier on the characterizations. The book didn't grab me and...

Not my type of book

Well-written, but I'm not sure if that is because of the author or the translator. The story was not my type of story, but I can see how it would appeal to someone else. Personally, I just found it depressing.

Loved it!

I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the first two. While some people felt that the ending was rushed, I felt that it went at the perfect pace, to make it go quicker or slower would have been to remove important pieces. You had to feel what Katniss...

Disappointed in it

I finally finished this book and it was LONG, way longer than it needed to be. I was actually kinda disappointed in the way that it ended. Things were resolved, but they also really weren't. It made me sad that after all that Gemma had lost, she still had to...

I loved it!

I loved this book. It was adorable. I can see how an elementary school-aged child, especially a boy, would just love it!

I didn't like this book

While this book is well-written, I didn't like it at all. It just wasn't my type of book. I didn't like any of the characters.
