With that said, once I was mentally able to get past the mistakes, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot is well thought out and brilliantly executed. Air (the protagonist) is a very well developed character. The author keeps the reader guessing both about what we will find out about his past and about what is soon to happen to him. A sense of suspense is developed early on and sustained throughout the duration of this novel.
This is, overall, great work. I would recommend this book for the most part, and would purchase another by the same author if I had the chance.
There is only one bad thing that I can say about The Cause--it has many punctuation and spelling/word confusion problems throughout, including a rather glaring one on the front cover. Fortunately, the errors do not detract from the story in any way and are usually easy enough to overlook (though I did run into at least one that had me rereading the sentence to figure out what it meant). The story is so good that I can't make myself take away any stars because of the errors, but they are there.
I would recommend this book to fans of dystopian fiction. Actually, I'd recommend it to everyone, but I'm sure fans of the genre would especially appreciate it (considering they can overlook the grammatical issues). The Cause is an excellent book that shouldn't be missed.
This is the second or third Kindle edition that I have downloaded which is full of errors; is it only the Kindle edition or are the hardback and paperback editions of equally poor quality?
There are many grammatical errors that will get back an automated spell checker and many word used incorrectly. Force your brain to read what should be the word(s) and you can enjoy the story.

While The Cause was reminiscent to me of other dystopias, there's definitely a unique factor to it.Read more
