4.0 out of 5 stars I do like it!, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Article 5 (Kindle Edition)
I really do like this book but there are also a few things I hate about it too.

I think this book is written very well, I like the characters, I like setting and I sort of like the writing. I love how Ember is a real girl and we see her slowly develop. She isn't badass straight away, she isn't a heroine by the middle of the book. It takes time. She is like a real character, the real feelings that a real world human would show, despair, heartbreak....

I study history and just recently I have studied the Nazi Germany period. I think this book is a lot like that, one government...complete power...everyone fears them and of course after a war. I don't know whether the author was trying to carry it off like that but I like it. It is different and bodes well to reality.

The reason I gave it four stars is because I feel as though the author was trying to hard with the writing. She was using one too many metaphors or really forcing the description, I mean some people won't think like that but that really annoyed me, I would prefer it if she toned it down a notch or two.

I don't know if this is a memorable book but I do enjoy it. Recommended
