Book Description

Chemical warfare has obliterated most of the world, including America, and the survivors have turned into feral beasts, save one colony, Antius, the last remnant of civilization. Seventeen-year-old Cori (aka Citizen 1206) only longs for wide open spaces and freedom. But Antius has no use for such things, just mindless drones to serve in a place with walls, fences, and laws. A lot of laws, which Cori constantly breaks. So she’s spent years plotting her escape, which is the only thing that will save her from the colony’s deranged leader, Nathan. She isn’t looking to be a hero, and she certainly isn’t looking to fall in love, but she just might do both.

3.0 out of 5 stars A light dystopian romp 26 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5 stars. An enjoyable YA dystopian read and definitely value for money since it's free. It handles the usual tropes and trials of the sub genre with energy though not from an especially new angle. It took me ages to get into because I found the first chapter off putting. It seemed jumbled and incoherent and tbh at that point I didn't care about Cori. Once I got past the first few chapters I got sucked in a read it in 24hrs.

As another reviewer has noted, Cori is a bit inconsistent. She pendulums from being shut off, closed down and recklessly fearless to bawling her eyes out. I'm afraid I didn't buy that. The only time when I thought her crying was in character was when she realised what humanity had lost, and what she had missed out on, in the ruined house. Otherwise it seemed as though it was to make her more vulnerable and it didn't come off.

I didn't like Dylan. I didn't dislike him either but he was a chameleonic presence who changed to fit what the plot needed rather than a character in his own right.

There were flashes of really good writing (on the whole it was good throughout) even excellent writing. It's a shame that perhaps a bit more time shaking out the plot wasn't taken. No real holes as such but the pacing is off and there are original ideas in there that didn't get the exploration they merited.

My real niggle was the end though. It felt rushed and facile. Didn't really buy into it especially how Cori reacts to the reappearance of an important character. It just wouldn't be sunshine and rainbows: they wouldn't really know each other after so long. Cori would resent a curb on her decision making, she might resent that this person didn't look for her at the compound, she'd probably regress to a childish role again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable read 4 Feb. 2014
By Denise
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was really interesting and compelling, I couldn't stop reading. The story doesn't get boring and you don't expect the plot twists. The characters could have used with more development and certain deaths might have been more emotionally stirring than they were. Apart from that I highly recommend you download it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL 18 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exactly the type of book I've been waiting to get my hands on for the longest time ever!!
Perfect from start to finish, with a solid dystopian reality and vivid unforgettable characters! The protagonist, Corrie, is so likeable because she's so tough but also vulnerable. I admire her and she contributed to my liking of the novel in so many ways!

If you liked Delirium and The Hunger Games, this is another great novel you'll want to sink your teeth into!
