Even if I've read this a million times before, this book is still so much fun.
One might even say it's legendary.
Bad. Cashing on dystopia-mania in YA lit.
Felt nothing for the characters, kept wondering when the action would start and finally just gave up.
Life is short, there are far better books to read.
