Decent enough take on the techno-war, distopic, ripping-on-1984 genre. Fairly enjoyable, but this is definitely one that you have to give 50 pages or so before you give up (I didn't the first time I tried to read this and had a totally different perception of the book than when I read it this time). I do have a couple of quibbles to voice however:
1. While I understand and am okay with some sexuality in a teen novel (yes, I get it, being obsessed with sex is part of being a teen nowadays), I am not really okay with explicit sex scenes in a YA novel. Not making any judgement calls or anything, but here is a warning if your not into that either.
2. While you ride the story on the emotional high you get, you don't notice the plot holes or the absurdity of some of Marcus' actions. But once you put the book down and think about all sorts of things stand out as poor editing. Not saying I could do any better.
Overall a good read, but not one that I think I'll be reading again.
