5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing thought provoking trilogy, 21 Sept. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Article 5 (Article 5 (Quality)) (Paperback)
This is going to be a slightly odd review because whilst I enjoyed Article 5 it didn't blow me away as much as the second book, Breaking Point, so my five stars are for the story so far. This is quite unusual in a trilogy, normally you find book one develops the characters and gives an intro into their world, book three gives the conclusion, the 'happily ever after' if you like, while the most you can hope for in book two is some twist or cliffhanger. Not so, Breaking Point held so many surprises I can't see how Three (that's what its called) will top it.
firstly lose any preconceived ideas you may have from other books of this genre about a dystopian future. Forget The Hunger Games and the Pure trilogy, because while they were good reads that isn't going to happen, instead imagine a future United States so torn by war the the Bill of Rights is replaced by the Moral Statute. One family under God, traditional values are being embraced and whole families with mother and father only recognised as valid citizens. This stuff is disturbing, THIS could happen.
Our heroine in this Ember Miller is a teenage girl brought up by a single working mum and conceived out of wedlock. their very existence in a world where nail varnish and magazines are contraband good, goes against the Moral statute.
Ember's life changes with her mothers arrest and her introduction into the brutal reform school.
The imagination in this is incredible, the diverse and vividly described characters, the bombed cities, the fear, all of this will have you on the edge of seat and re reading entire sections in disbelief. thoroughly enjoyable !
