Kiera Cass has created a world you can loose yourself in!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Elite (The selection Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I liked the first book a lot, but I absolutely loved "The Elite". This is story writing at it's best. For me a good book is something I can loose myself in and forget about the world around me and its problems. This book did that for me, I couldn't put it down. There were some surprises in this book that were unexpected and I'm excited to see where the story goes from here.
What I liked:
America stays true to herself and her beliefs. She doesn't care if it's proper or expected behavior when it comes to what she feels is right.
America, Maxon and Aspen all have made mistakes whose consequences they have to live with, but they also learn from them.
America finds out what the reason behind the rebel attacks may be.
We finally get to see King Clarksons true colors.
Mary, Anne and Lucy. They remain completely loyal and true friends to America. I love them!
What I didn't like:
Her indecisiveness between Maxon and Aspen. It seems to be that she favors whomever she's with at the moment. I hope she sticks with the choice she makes at the end of the book and doesn't change her mind again in the next one.
Aspen, I really started despising him in this book. He keeps telling America things about Maxon that he really doesn't know, since he doesn't know the guy.
King Clarkson, he's humanity at its worst!!! I hope he gets put in his place in the next book.
My favorite quote:
(Exchange between Marlee and America)
She sighed. "I give up. Sorry, America, you've been so patient, but I hate hearing myself play. It sounds like the piano is sick."
"More like it's dying actually."
I definitely recommend this book. I can't wait to find out how the story ends and how America solves her current dilemmas.
