Farmer's characters are distinct and life-like. In spite of his heroism Matt is a believable teenager, not a junior super-hero, and he has a teenager's problems. He loves a girl who is far away but he's also confused by his feelings for the beautiful eejit servant girl, who will do whatever he commands. He has trouble, too, in staying friends with the boys from the orphanage now that he's rich and powerful.
Matt's world comes to life in every detail--you can practically smell the desert air and hear the hum of the flying machines. But there is nothing stereotypical about this dystopia. Although Opium is a social disaster, it is also an ecological paradise and offers hope to the rest of the planet. In a way, the same is true of Matt. At first he is a despised clone, manufactured rather than born, but with the help of his allies, he becomes a true leader. The novel is poignant, startling and inspiring. I loved it.

I was surprised about the formatting of the plot. A great deal of the book was dedicated to exploring Opium, with the observatory and large swaths of undeveloped land. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Stan Flores

I wasn't sure how the author was going to be able to come up with an adequate ending for The House of the Scorpion and do it any justice, but she was able to pull it off. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Cathy R--Amazon Customer
I read House of the Scorpion years ago, and recently found out about the sequel. Nancy Farmer's writing style barely changed, and its such a decent ending. Great story.Published 3 months ago by BriAngelia
