Erickson maintains a steady, consistently controlled dramatic pace throughout. The result is a thoroughly refreshing reading experience.. an original concept delivered with a realistic and consistent voice. Congratulations to this young novelist!.
There are twists that you kinda see coming, but twists nonetheless in the story as well.
I found the story line interesting, and the way the author has described this new America, I thought she was on to something. The way Macey thought outside the box that the government put her in, the author was definitely on the right track...then she slipped. Not far, but, slipped nonetheless. She could have done SOOOOOOO much with this idea, and she already had a great foundation. The characters were well thought out, and relationships formed between the reader and each character to the point that when one dies, I'm bawling my eyes out. The author was >thisclose< and then she seemed to quit. I felt like she just decided to quit the book, and threw down an ending. It felt so rushed, I'm flipping back and forth on my kindle, searching up the book online, trying to figure out where the rest of it went. As much as it pains me, I have to say that the ending was so off-putting I'm not sure if I want to read anything else by her. She raised my hopes so high...Read more ›
The disease claims 75% of those left in the country. And, there isn't any known cure. The ruling authority has set up a system in which everyone must go and endure experiments at set intervals in the Facility. This system lasts until you reach the age of 60 (if you make it that long).
This story caught my attention because the teenagers are forced to grow up too soon. Most have lost at least one in their family while some have lost both of their parents.
It illustrates rebellion, compassion. love for family and friends and life complete with its ups and downs.
The characters are well defined, plot is excellent and the ending is super. I did have to think about the ending for awhile after I finished reading it. I figured out that it offers hope for one of the main characters and it really is a perfect ending.
Most highly recommended.
The outspoken Macey is trapped and limited by the government and begins to question the way things have been for years. She is surrounded by suffering, loss and clings tightly to her diminishing family and friends for strength. Macey's one creative outlet - art - becomes censored after she paints old symbols that are forbidden for unknown reasons to her. Stephanie Erickson has created an incredibly well rounded character in Macey - a young woman who is facing a very controlled future - who instead of submitting to the government like everyone else begins to challenge the justness of her world and make her own path, for however long she can. The society Erickson has built is fascinating and the suspense level is high throughout the entire novel.
The ending is extremely well done and thought provoking. The character of Macey develops from a rebellious argumentative girl to a incredibly brave woman who is forced to make decisions that could change everything. The Cure captured my attention and I couldn't put it down - to the point where I stayed up all night to finish. It is a must read from a brilliant young author.
