For me this is a "four star" book. The addition star is for the Flannery O'Connor quote at the beginning.
Though not as suspenseful as the first two books, this is much more intense and more poignant. The description of the place, the corruption of those in charge, the depiction of cruelty and atrocity and the portrayal of hopelessness and helplessness are done in vivid details that twist the hearts of the readers.
Though Katy is too stubborn, too impulsive and too naïve for my type of main protagonist, she proves herself a worthy heroine with her sharp tongue and steely determination to save her friends and other children in the center.
Just like the other books in the series, this is casually worded and easy to read. However, though this book can be a standalone, I recommend that readers check out the first two books and read the series in proper order to get acquainted with and appreciate the important characters.
Randall does a masterful job of showing us a country at war with itself and its citizens as she describes Washington state, and the rest of the U.S., through the eyes of a 17-year old. Without piling it on too thick, she also shows us what can happen when people sit back and let bureaucrats and politicians decide our fate. She also very deftly portrays how we can have evil right in our midst sometimes, and only a select few manage to see it.
An extremely well-written and well-edited book, I found the cover a bit weak and cartoonish given the serious nature of the book itself. The characters were well drawn, giving the reader a sense of being inside the action as it move along, surprised when things went a way that was different than the character anticipated. The protagonists were like real people—in situations that can be easily related to situations we see today. The villains were just that . . . villainous, but even that was shown by their actions and consistent throughout.
Having read the first two books, I knew Katy’s backstory. More of it would have been helpful to those, though, who are reading Randall’s work for the first time.
I give City of Hidden Children four stars.
