*The publisher provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for review.*

Clearly 2012 is the year of the Sci-fi novel. Glitch inhabits a world somewhere between Robocop, X-men and The Bionic women. I have read books similar to this already this year and Glitch slots itself right in the middle of them meaning I have read some better and I have read some worse.

I liked the general idea. I thought it was well thought out and put together. Unlike other books of this genre Glitch's technology was easy to understand and visualize which made all the difference to the flow of the story.

The writing was good and there were a couple of scenes that were outstanding. There is a train crash sequence that I thought was just amazing.

Another thing I liked was Adrien. There was something about him that I just found likeable and cute. He was kind and patient and just generally a nice guy. He made a good love interest and I think it should have just stayed with him instead of bringing in a love triangle that just didn't work for me.

The other person in this love triangle is Max (grits teeth) I understand that sometimes you have to find characters unlikeable, but you should never hate a character so much it makes you almost give up on the book. Literally every scene he was in was painful for me. I couldn't bare him at all and to have him as another potential love interest was just seriously unbelievable, simply because no one in their right mind would ever find this person attractive. I may sound harsh but read it and you will see what I mean. He is probably the worst male YA character I have come across. He is selfish, arrogant and sex obsessed. He doesn't understand what no means and has a head bigger than the US continent. Yeh...

I was really excited when I got an email inviting me to participate in the Glitch book tour. Ever since I added Glitch to my Waiting on Wednesday list I've been desperate to read it. It sounded like it was going to be something along the lines of The Host by Stephanie Meyer and I hadn't read a book like that in a long while so I thought I'd give Glitch a go.

My favourite character is undoubtedly Adrien. For starters, his description almost exactly matches that of someone I was once saw across the room and I decided to call him 'Adrian' in my mind (hey, maths lectures are boring, staring at hot boys across the room is far more interesting) so I felt like it was fate. Silly, I know. Adrien is amazingly caring and the description of his green/blue eyes makes him sound divine. The one thing that really annoyed me about Adrien is the way that he talks. Some of the language he uses is just weird but I suppose it gives him more personality.

The other male interest, Max, is just incredibly annoying in my opinion. Apart from the fact that he keeps getting in the way of Adrien and Zoe, the thing at the forefront of his mind seems to be sex - and he doesn't even really know what it is! I think his character is a bit obsessed with Zoe, rather than actually caring for her.

I have very mixed feelings about the character Zoe. The book is written from the first person perspective so you see everything through her eyes and sometimes I couldn't help but think - How can you be so dumb? For the most part she is a great protagonist and I like that she stands up for herself. For someone who's suddenly been thrown into the middle of a resistance against a global operation she handles things quite well and remains headstrong.

I liked 'Glitch' in that Anastatsiu was pretty careful putting her world together and mainly because she's goes to almost painstaking lengths to explain the V-chip; how it works, where it is and how they put it in to the point where the whole thing is plausible to me and I can accept the fact that it might happen. My knowledge of the brain and neurology etc. is quite limited, many other people may disagree with me but as someone of average enough intelligance it was plausible. The world is a dystopian one where humanity has fled underground after a nuclear war, it's a grim place and the little details such as nosebleeds from poor air circulation make it interesting.
I liked the idea of dampening peoples emotions to make them obedient but I can remember seeing that idea in the movie 'Serenity' and the emotionless thing is also a bit similiar to Nalini Singh's psy series (i think i got author and series right there!). However, although not completely original I think Anastatsiu portrays the idea well. Zoel, or Zoe, is convincing enough and shows her naivety when it comes to love and relationships, she doesn't understand the emotions she's feeling and is rightly so a bit frightened. Adrien, the eventual love interest, is likeable and grows on you whereas you hate her new frend Max but I can understand his aggressive behaviour where he seems only to think about having sex all the time. Max has only been glitching for a few months (the v-chip glitches every now and then, stopping working and unleashing emotion and colour), so all of a sudden he is a teenage boy with hormonal urges and all that malarkey that he has trouble controlling.
Not a bad book there are a few good plot twists and bits of action, the writing is a bit simplistic and this may not be the best dystopian novel out there but hopefully the second book will step it up!
