While the rating system is by far not a new concept by any means in dystopian worlds, nor is the classification of rich and poor, I believe that Jason Tesar is on to something unique and wonderful with this story. To write about a society that is ran solely based upon consensus of opinion, therefore making it truth and law, made for a completely thought provoking read. His storyline was well thought out, nicely paced, and flowed seamlessly from one part to the next. His characters likable, realistic, and easy to empathize with. If i had one complaint, it would be that the story was too short. It flew by quickly and was over far before I was ready.
One of the things I truly enjoyed about this novel was the philosophical discussions about multiple person's opinion, and how that could make it absolute truth. In other words, how when a large enough group of people agree about something, it then becomes known as 'fact' versus a large group of opinion.
This was a series that was fantastical written all the way through from the first page to the last. The world building easily immerses you into the author's world and keeps you there. The quality of the characters are lifelike and realistic, as is the growth process throughout the subsequent books. Jason Tesar continously propels the story forward with snappy writing and an ever evolving plot.
Overall the perfect dystopian read for teenagers and above that enjoy an intelligent, thought provoking read. It should be provided in high school classrooms, so that students could have the opportunity to ponder and have meaningful dialogue about herd mentality, consensus opinions and actual facts.
