Author: Lauren Destafano
I love dystopia like the millions of others who are into this genre. There is just something about the aspect of a story where life seems so bad and someone has to take stand to change the world. When I heard about Wither I knew I had to read this story. Prior to even reading the first page I just had that feeling that this book/series is going to be the next big thing. I don't think my feelings were too far off.
I love the atmosphere of this story. It is a world wonderfully created and contains many things that really make you think about "Is life really that bad?" Rhine lives in this home/mansion where she is given anything she wants except her freedom. However, Rhine begins to realize the what is going on behind the scenes is enough for her to try and leave. I don't want to give anything away, but I have a request for the author
- I want to know more about the basement and what all goes on down there
- I want to know about the rest of the world in terms of what is going on outside of this home
You have to read this book. Even if you feel that you cannot possibly read another dystopia novel, please give this one a try. The chemistry between the sister wives and all the little plot elements that unravel while you read is just too good to pass up.
I did have a few places where I thought the author was going to lose my interest and then I turned the page and BAM! I was smacked hard in my reading face with a new plot element.
If you cannot tell I really want to share with you guys some specifici reasons why this book is so great, but I just cannot ruin it for you.
This book is moving on to the top of my reading lists this year over on my 2011 reading page.
Great dystopia feel
And yes it does end in a huge cliffhanger
