So I am riding right along with this dystopian-teenager-must-save-the-world theme. I adored the Hunger Games, and was totally hooked by the Maze Runner. And I found this story completely captivating. The Society annoyingly perfectly evil, Cassia apparently bland, and perfectly perfect as well….and then it all starts to crumble. Loved the way the flaws in the perfect world were slowly revealed, even though Cassia was way ahead of me it felt like walls being torn down, bit by bit, the more you learned about the Society and its ways.
Generally not a fan of love triangles, but this one is devastating and totally works for me. I loved the writing style too; the whole book felt like a poem almost. Great story, although I probably cheated this review by reading the entire series before reviewing the first book. Will be reviewing the next two in the series, Crossed and Reached soon!
