Oh boy, where do I begin? I literally devoured this book in a day, it was that good. I had been wanting to read it for a very long time because I met the author in Chicago at a book convention and she cracked me up! I read 'The Chemical Garden' series and loved the concept of them so this was obviously a must read for me. And it was AMAZING! I think the only thing I didn't like was how fast the Maxon and America's relationship happened, but I liked how they interacted with each other. This book had me laughing an don the edge of my seat the whole time. It did remind me a little of 'The Hunger Games' but people are getting annoyed with it being compared to that so maybe I shouldn't say that. I found the characters likeable, especially the different girls who were selected and their different personalities and how they treated America. As for the romance, whenever America and Maxon were together I rooted for them completely, I like them together because they have the same personality and I personally don't like Aspen much. I liked that it kept me on my toes and it was a love triangle that did not annoy me. I can't wait to find out what the rebels have in store for Illea and what they are really looking for. I also can't wait to see who America chooses, of course and I'd like to hear more from and about May Singer, she was ADORABLE.
All in all, I loved this book and can't wait for paperback because I NEED to finish it!
