STAR RATINGS GUIDE
💜 I went into this having seen the film adaptation and thinking the book would be the same. It's not. Not even slightly. Well, slightly. The point is, you have to go in without preconceptions. Clear Clive Owen from your mind.
💚 The premise of the book is excellent. Brilliant. And the beginning throws you in at the deep end. Lovely.
🧡 Overall this is well crafted, with detailed, expansive world building However, the pace was a bit too slow, with description at the expense of action. As a fan of dystopian fiction, I enjoyed this, but it's not for everyone.
