Format: Paperback
Starting with the bad and ending in the good, Glitch had horrible, horrible, romance qualities. It seemed insta-love-ish because of the fact that after only what? A few hours she met Adrien, they were already making out. Good lord, spare me. She seemed to feel a "connection" despite the fact that she had barely known him. Honestly, I wanted to strangle some sense into her. And then, afterwards when her memory's gone (totally not a spoiler. You'll see when you read it) she's suddenly the apple of another guy's eye who loves her. *cough* AWKWARD. And she goes along with it, never mind the fact that it feels...wrong. So, you guessed it. LOVE TRIANGLE.

But while the romance really irked me, I actually liked Glitch! It, honestly, would've been so much better without the romance, but the world-building, the characters, the plot--they were all things I enjoyed reading about. The world-building was amazing and the way that each hard drive was wired in and how the Link controlled the people were amazing. The descriptions didn't confuse me (much. Trust me, I'm totally lost on all this tech stuff). And I loved that the Link would hold of your emotions and that it made all color gray. I'm not sure if that symbolized anything...? But still. Love the world.

The characters! I can say I related to Zoe a lot. I mean, can you imagine not being able to feel anything? Not being able to see color? I could definitely relate to craving all that, despite being told all my life that it was wrong and abominable. Adrien was as great a character as Zoe and I think they were perfect together! Smiles...definitely. Characters were one of my favorite things about Glitch!

Plot? The plot was so...twisty. I mean, you had absolutely no idea who to trust. The good guys were bad, the bad guys were good.

MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Zoel lives in a controlled environment, where brains are reprogrammed and people are essentially worker bees, doing nothing but following orders and barely existing. In a post apocalyptic United States, people have been told that the world is unsafe and they must exist in a bunker like world, underground and never seeing anything but their own small little space. They are fitted with computer chips that override emotions as well as desire and violence. Much like communist China, the world they live in revolves around "self reporting" their glitches so their brains can be repaired or decommissioned.

The people are told this is to keep them safe and Zoel, believes it all until she starts to have episodes where reality shines through and she feels things and has thoughts. She thinks she is alone until she meets Max and others who also are "glitching". Now, nicknamed Zoe by the others, she learns that glitchers have powers, hers being telekinesis. The story revolves around Zoe becoming a resistance fighter and taking on the government who rules with an iron fist when she learns about how corrupt their system is.

This is a fresh take on a dystopian theme that has become a base for a lot of young adult books lately. Kids find they are being abused / used, rise up to fight the power with some sort of paranormal help and try to win back control to become human again. I really enjoyed all of the characters and their struggles and look forward to the next in the series. This should be fine for even the youngest of teens with a bit of violence, a teen pregnancy, some kissing but nothing graphic. If you enjoyed Under the Never Sky or The Selection, this should be on your list!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was really excited about this book -you could almost say that it was on my "most anticipated of 2012" list -well, at least something like that. Just that gorgeous cover that jumped out at me, the completely fascinating blurb that was all about control (and breaking out of it). It might has well have my name on it.

Zoel (or, Zoe) lives in the Community, an underground world where there is no pain or war -and all emotion and individuality has been stripped away by a chip that is implanted into all humans to keep order -always. But when Zoe's chip starts to "glitch," she is suddenly confronted with new feelings, thoughts and a personal identity -all that could mean her deactivation. Zoe seems like she's all alone until she meets others who are also glitching.

Hum...I'm not really sure what to say about Glitch. I guess that, at its core, I really wanted it to be better than it was. Glitch started out with promise -the writing was beautiful, Zoe's conflicts were compelling and the entire concept of the Community was interesting. But, then it seemed that the action seemed to pick up too quickly and the plot, as somewhat confusing as it was, pushed forward in an odd and somewhat unexpected way. (I know this sounds odd, but it seemed like there should have been more story between certain events.)

Once we got into the plot, the action picked up, but the book started to go into places that I didn't expect it to -and that I honestly didn't want it to. I was really more interested in the composition and history of the Community itself and the control it had over people rather than the Zoe's strange powers and the new rag-tag band she starts running with. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't what I wanted it to be.

But I kept reading. That's what matters, doesn't it?
Glitch is a good read in the YA dystopian world, and well worth the time.
