I LOVE dystopian/end of the world fiction but did not love this book. At times it was almost like walking into a movie you've missed the first 20 minutes of and trying to play catch up.
The pacing was all over the place, as was the storytelling, which was sometimes confusing, and world building. There was a lot of backstory thrown in that was unimportant/unnecessary/I didn't give a sh*t LOL -- when, again more attention could have been paid to world building which is KEY in a book like this...and to character building.
Bottom Line: I liked it but I didn't love it. There's better books out there. But I'd still read the second book tho I'm not sure why.
I've also read two of her YA books and had similar issues with her writing so maybe this author's writing style just doesn't work for me.
