So much for blogging every week! I keep falling off the wagon! But NaNoWriMo is coming, and I sure don’t want to miss a whole month of blogging…. getting a few ready for the future. :)
Anyway, here’s my review of “Crossed” by Ally Condie. I finished this ages ago, like in September! #slacking
Cassia has been separated from Ky and Xander, and wrangles her way out to the Outer Provinces, where, after a series of near-misses, she finally meets up with Ky, and the enemy of the Society, joining forces to try to take it down from the inside.
This book alternates between Ky’s and Cassia’s points of view, and I like the format. The description of the Carving is lovely, and I like the idea of a small alcove of rebels living out of range of the Society, preserving a little of the life they used to have. Is it for naught?
Jeez I’m pretty bad at book reviews. How do you go into detail without giving too much away? I want people to read the book, not find out what happens. At any rate, the poetic feeling continues, and I like it, although I think overall I’m still slightly against present-tense writing. I also like Cassia’s new “friend,” Ivie, and Ky’s interaction with his compadre in the Outer Provinces, Vick.
