Read – August

read-august

I had heard about this book some time ago but resisted. Then I found both this and the second book of the series in a local charity shop so thought why not.

Overall I liked it. It was a sort of typical teenage fiction novel with a dystopian backdrop. I liked the characters and her writing.

What I didn’t like was the inevitable dragging on of the story. Obviously as I had already bought book two I knew there would not be a conclusion at the end of this book but I just wish it wasn’t the norm to write a series. Just the phase we are in I guess. At lease I can pick the next one up straight away – although I think a little break would be a good idea.
