Quite similar to The Hunger Games, but somehow even more disturbing. Full of terrifying images, well-presented characters, political intrigue and just a hint of romance. A tough but mesmerizing read.

Beautiful, powerful, and perfect. A heavy, sobering read, but completely worth it.

Ugh! Baggott is obviously a good writer.. but such nightmarish stuff without relief... This one was definitely not for me.

I loved it. The writing is so gorgeous and the whole world that's been created is unique and has just a touch of surreal. It's also a bit disturbing. It's very thick and intricate to read, though, and near the end of the book, the romance really tangled up the plot. I couldn't tell who was falling in love with who.

Dark, surprising, and an engrossing read. Think Hunger Games but better. Much better! I don't know if there's going to be a film made of this, but it's a very filmic story.

À chaque chapitre, au début, l'auteure passe d'une héroîne à l'autre, ce qui pour moi, rendait ma lecture monotone. Une fois les 2 héroines cheminaient ensembles, cela ce lisait un peu mieux.

Julianna Baggott has created a very unique post-apocalyptic world where the Detonation has resulted in new disturbing life forms. Plus, depending on what you were doing at the time of the detonation, people who survived were fused to objects and other people. Only those in the Dome were spared the atrocities or so the survivers believed. Baggott has a fabulous imagination. Her world is totally believable.

This book isn't your typical teen dystopian story, which was kind of refreshing. However, it's a bit slow at first... it really doesn't get good until page 120. But, I'm glad I kept going with it, because the next 300 pages were REALLY good! Looking forward to the sequel.

we know you are here, brothers and sisters. We will, one day emerge from the Dome to join you in peace. But for now we watch from afar, benevolently.
