This book was a little slow to start out, but as I got in to it I couldn't put it down. I loved the plot and I wish the author would write a sequel because
it was an amazing book.

This book had a solid plot and a great concept, but there were many things I disliked about it. The beginning started off rather slow and very, if I dare say, boring. This is definitely not the best book I've read, but it isn't the worst I've read either. I found it hard to read sometimes, because the pace was not that good. I really liked the characters, specifically the "chubby" guy- I forgot his name. I thought it had some funny parts, and some intriguing moments, but other than that, this book was not what I thought it'd be like. The ending had to be the best part for me.

I really liked the concept of this book, but there were many things I would have changed if I were the author. Great start though - there aren't many books out there with the theme of subliminal messages.

Another great dystopian novel, great for fans of The Giver.

It was alright, took awhile to get into the whole idea the novel was based on. very disappointed with the ending as well ...
