My Thoughts

 

Okay, there is a ton of reviews out there that will give you all the reasons why you should read this, so I won't repeat all those here.  I will say, that I think the reason it took me so long to read (listen) this is…well, honestly, I didn't think I would like it.  Eventually, I had seen so many reviews for it, and the books following this one, that would go on and on about how good it really is, that I knew I was probably wrong.  

 

I think this is one of those stories that’s perfect for all ages.  YA is one of my favorite genre's because of stories like this one.  This book has a little bit of almost everything, I'm going to go with this being...

 

A sci-fi/fairytale-retelling-with-some-aliens/romance/thriller/mystery-with-a-virus/kind-of-end-the-world-as-we-know-it/dystopian kind of read.

 

Sex Factor:  Yeah…it has none of that.
