This is a powerfully told story ... the characters are well-developed, the plot unfolds brilliantly, ending with an unexpected twist. Definitely a thought provoking read and one I would highly recommend.

This story made me question someaspects of our society that I take for granted and don't give a second thoughtabout. If you are still thinking about a story after the last pages are turned,that is the mark of a good book.

A shocking cautionary tale ... fast-paced and eloquent ... Loose ends are wrapped whether you like the way they turn our or not ... It was engaging and entrancing. Part horror and part human interest story. The way that Anderson ends his novel is electrifying in its brilliance. This is an author who takes a chance and I loved it.

Nothing short of compelling. The author uses words the way an artist applies color. The story is suspenseful and moves at a quick pace. The characters are well developed. When it comes to the main character (Chase Stern), Anderson introduces us to an individual who is haunted by the choices he's made in life. His flaws and regrets make it easy to relate to him. Provoke Not the Children requires the reader to consider the cost of a society that places self above all else. It is perfect for a book club discussion.

It is very fast-paced, with well-developed characters. The main character, the hero, Chase Stern, is a guy you can't help but love.

Great plot, interesting writing and a chilling, but great ending...I definitely recommend this to all dystopian fans, both young and old.
