Like any other caste separated society in dystopian literature, Reap is the story of the special strong female chosen one, but the storytelling and writing style are excellent and very compelling. They pulled me right in and I purchased the entire trilogy before I’d even finished this first book.
I loved all the details about the harvest and the apple orchards that really brought the town of Orchard to life. I wish there had been a bit more creativity and imagination in some of the naming, hence the town of “Orchard” but I was too mesmerized by the brewing trouble in town, the burgeoning romance between Abby and Crew, the complication that Kyan posed, and the greater mystery tied up in the Lesser towns.
I loved how Abby was strong, resilient, and stubborn to the point of stupidity. Her pride is so strong it overwhelms others. She is special for a reason, being both Greater and Lesser and not just in the right place at the right time, though that does help.
As with most YA books, I wish that females were not relegated into antiquated roles of society – the housewife and child bearer. Though the main character is the ‘strong female’ archetype, society at large is still somewhat sexist.
The ending felt rushed, but I didn’t much care because I was able to pick the story right back up with book two…
I love, love, love a great dystopian novel and this one was just FABULOUS. I actually pretty much read this in two sittings it was so fast paced and just bursting with awesome characters that you just want to root for. And boy did I root for the good ones and pray for the downfall of the bad ones. The characters are so well captured in reap and the whole lesser greater village world is so well thought out and just brilliant. This book totally pulls you in holds you captivated and immerses you in the world.
I adored Lulu and Abigail, I also loved the introduction of them, and I hope book two finds a way to incorporate Abigails mother and father. I loved kyan too, I so wanted Abigail to have the same feelings for him in the beginning but whoa once crew came into the picture all hope was lost for kyan. although towards the end you start to have a bloody great disliking for crew,thankfully it doesn't last long
Ahh and then there is Gray aka guard how I adored him so so much I actually think he was my favourite character and I seriously hope there will be more from him in book two.
Reap is a stunning new edition to the dystopian genre to rival all others, I can honestly say this book was utterly ridiculously fantastic, I'm itching to read book two. Definitely one to read and enjoy. A new favourite for me.
it has twists and turns you really just aren't expecting... sometimes with books you can think you know whats going to happen but with REAP you really don't have a clue even if you think you do.
ABBY BLUE? need i say more? really? ... she's a strong willed teenager who's grown up really quick. she knows what she wants and nothing will sway her mind once shes set it!
CREW is kind of a Love/Hate character but ultimately i think you just end up feeling really sorry for him.
KYAN.... he's like Gale from Hunger Games... you instantly feel sorry for him as he's never going to have the love of the girl that he wants, his best friend the girl he's grown up with. You just want her to see him and fall in love with him and everything to be okay but you just know from the beginning that that's never going to happen no matter how much you wish for it.
I can't wait to read Resist and see what happens next.
The storyline and the story itself was brilliant, original and interesting. I loved the era it has been written into. I find that the story was so well imagined and nothing like I have ever read before. It was like a mix of a few different books from different genres, which made it even more amazing.
The characters were fun to discover and easy to get attached to. My favorite was Abby's best friend, Ky. I am totally team Ky! He seems like the better choice, and closer to home in my opinion, but you will have to read the book to formulate your own!
Casey had a nice shock factor and was able to spring surprises at you without you knowing they were coming. That's what made the book so much more interesting. She kept you wanting to know what was going to happen next.
I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I would recommend this to anyone who like dystopian style books. Casey L. Bond is such a wonderful author! I have to give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
