I did mention how obsessed I can get over the things that I love...right?
Ok so I finished the book today and WOW. I am BEYOND glad that I stuck with it because it's still pouding in my mind right now. I mean literally, I keep reflecting on the imagery I've created of the Republic and Day & June and I'm just like...
I need more!
I read this book COMPLETELY unaware that this was part of a series so you can imagine how much my heart was totally sinking when I saw how little I had to go to finish the book knowing there was NO WAY on God's green earth that they were going to answer all the questions I had in enough time. Then when it ended, I was like WHAT?! I went on a madhunt and found this was book 1 to a three part series and that book 2 is already out and book 3 is coming soon.
Believe me when I say that I truly cried-legit-happy tears.
What I Liked:
Can I just say BRAVO to Marie Lu for creating a story where BOTH the boy AND the girl characters are REALLY smart, beautiful, and their own heroes? I mean TRULY! It's like WHY AREN'T THERE MORE BOOKS LIKE THIS?! Listen, I love books that feature one being the victim and one being the hero but I won't lie that it is VERY refreshing to see a character where the girl is just as strong as the boy and the boy needs the girl as much as the girl needs him. I mean it's just equality all up and down the place! :) LOL She may not have meant to do that-but that's what I got and what I LOVED!
Switching between June & Day's perspective. The book is written in a way that you get to hear both sides of their version of the story. It's a REALLY great way of writing because it makes it feel like the book is CONSTANTLY changing and "new". Often since books are written only in the perspective of the main character, you only know the world through their eyes-which is great! Don't get me wrong! But at the same time, when I see this-it makes me think how refreshing it is to see opposite ends of the same world. It's more like real life. In real life, there are so many different ways to look at the same experience so when we get to see that in books-it's plenty cool! I really enjoyed that.
What I Didn't Like:
...I'll be gentle....lol
Do I Recommend It:
I totally do! I actually think I need to read this twice in order to FULLY enjoy it. I feel like now that I understand soo much more since most of the "whys" were answered near the end, now I need to go back and read the first part to really get everything. :) So definitely worth a read. I liked it so much that I really want to buy it. (I borrowed it from the library)
Ok so those are my thoughts! Have you read it? What did you think? Share your thoughts!!
