Why did I wait so long to read you? I read the first book years ago. I borrowed the series from my niece months ago. It took me forever looking at you on the shelf before I picked you up. I can be so strange at times.
These are well crafted books. I enjoyed this one much more than the Giver, if you are going to go in to tween/teen science fiction.. or Pullman's "Dark Materials" trilogy instead. I enjoyed watching the story arch, and characters evolve after the Hunger Games.
