review 1: I loved this book and agree that while it may seem similar to the Hunger Games (or a teenage version of Gladiator), you won't find any profound revolutions or uprisings happening in this book. While some people might want something more than just the action, I found that I preferred this book just the way it was. Clearly the world that Sola lives in is disturbing and needs to be changed, but I actually enjoyed the fact that no changes were made and that the characters had to deal with the imperfections of the world. In many ways, this is actually quite realistic and I appreciated the fact that the author didn't attempt to have the characters journey on some adventure to make a change.In summary, if you are looking for just an action packed book, do give this one a ... moreread.
review 2: First off, I need to acknowledge that this book feels like it owes a lot of inspiration to The Hunger Games. This is most definitely not a criticism, as I love THG and am happy to read something similar if it is well written and interesting, and this story most definitely is. The overall similarities are there, albiet through a British view point (which being British - I loved), but from about half way through the story took on a life of it's own. With the inclusion of some interesting and shocking twists that make for compulsive reading. I really enjoyed this book, but my only criticism would be that I wish we had had more time in Sola's life to get to know her better before she was chosen for demonstrations. Looking forward to further stories from this author! less
