I apologize. As it turned out, my review pretty much stayed the same from my half-way point blog post and the girls of the book club pretty much agreed. We met last Wednesday, October 26th and while it may have taken us almost an hour to get seated, it didn't take us that long to discuss the book.
In short, we were all expecting more. We had a hard time relating to the characters in this story versus other dystopian stories. We also hard a hard time believing everyone would just go with it: Cassia and Ky and help her to find him. As if it was everyday that someone would defying the Society. I expected more of a fight especially from Xander. We liked the plot well enough to read through it and keep going with it page after page. For me, I had a hard time seeing Cassia as our heroin, but then again, maybe that was the point.
Next on the docket: The Accidental Genius of Weasel High by Rick Detorie. I just got the book in the mail today and from what I can see, it different from anything else we've read. This ought to be interesting.
