Brilliant end to the series

The same review as for books one and two old true. The one difference is that I really liked the way she "solved" the political problem through her crazy actions. Brilliant, scary, devastating.

Crazy and brilliant

What I would give to have an imagination like these authors. How the hell do they come up with this stuff? And how do they make enough sense of the craziness to write such a compelling novel? Crazy and brilliant! But don't bother reading it if big words or weird...

Really enjoyed it

I could really identify with the main character as someone who just wanted to fit in at school and yet was just a bit different. If only we didn't always feel like we had to conform, high school might have been more fun. I really enjoyed this book and think...

Meh

I have to say I enjoyed this, but it's quite young and i could see the end too easily. I read it in one evening though and the plot does keep you reading, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to other young adult book lovers

Brilliant

If I told you what this book was about and the genre you would think I was out of my mind to give it 5 stars. But seriously, I couldn't put it down, it is sarcastic and funny and I think everyone should read it.

A fun read

This is a fast-paced easy to read YA novel. I enjoyed it, but there is a major plot flaw at the end which really annoyed me and discredits the whole book. I'd recommend it to teenagers despite that though.

A fun read

Tomorrow #1 is a fun young adult book that keeps up the suspense and scariness of these teens' new existence. I enjoyed it, but wouldn't say it's my favourite. It deals with many real issues teenagers face in a more realistic way than some other books though,...

Will be a great series

I can't wait to read the next one! This short, but powerful book leaves you with more questions than answers, sure, but I couldn't put it down. It is action-packed and fun and yet it touches on some real and serious issues. I love that is is set in Joburg...

A bit too self-indulgent

It's good, it's great, but it is quite self-indulgent (even for a YA book) and I think the second half could really have been better. For a debut novel though, it is very good and I think it should be read by teenagers as it deals with various issues they...

Surprised and delighted

4.5 I loved this book. It was so typically YA and then it changed and I was delighted and surprised. I haven't read many books like this, because so I haven't read much paranormal ghost stories. And then there is quite a bit of urban...
