This book shows how society can change people's perceptions of one another. I also enjoyed the twists that Simone Pond cleverly inserted into the story. I thought the premise of the book was very clever with the government issued DOD (Date Of Death).
The ending was complete but left a teasing possibility that there could be more after this. I would love to read more about Kalli & Noah as well as the changes their country is going through where "Swarmed" leaves off.
I would recommend this book to others.
I highly enjoyed the dystopian setting and loved imagining each scene. I thought the names of all the characters were perfect. I believe this would make an outstanding series! I am dying to find out what happened to the pocket watch, the locket, the kitten, and what happens next! Simone, please consider continuing Kalli’s story!
Noah, a longtimer (the previously mentioned aristocrats) may have many years to live his life, but he's plagued by curiosity over what killed his brother a few years ago--he was supposed to live a long life. His search and Kalli's seem to overlap a lot so they reluctantly team up.
I really enjoyed this book. It's well-thought out and paced. It is a mostly believable dystopian future. I'd like to think that women wouldn't go back to the big dresses, functional corsets, and "lady-like" behavior voluntarily, but you play your part in this society or you die, so, voluntary is subjective, I guess.
Kalli is a gung ho, fearless non-conformist. She hates pretty much every aspect of her society, and considering where she comes from that's understandable. The status is not quo, it's terribly unbalanced and there is no way to move up in society. It is completely rigged against you. Noah, on the other hand, is her complete opposite, he is cautious, conforming to society, afraid of what others would think of him if he didn't. He's more-or-less okay with the status quo, but he's at the top looking down, and it looks great--maybe if people weren't so lazy they would have better DODs. Their differences make them a great team. She knows the streets, but he can read people better. He's a great planner--after all, he's got time to spare, but she's great on her toes--she's used to making snap decisions because she's running out of time.
I hope to see another book follow this. It ends and could be considered self-contained, but it is not the same world at the end of the book as it was at the beginning and I'm curious as to what Noah will be going home to.
The only reason why I did not give this a five star review is the editing. If this had not been a four or five star story to begin with, sucking me in right away, the grammar errors and omitted words would have had me put the book down. I often fell out of the story trying to figure out what was written. It wasn't unreadable by any stretch, but it was more mistakes than I consider acceptable. I've read the City Center books by the author and don't remember this level of errors in it. A second edition with better editing would be an easy five star review from me. I'm hard pressed to find anything else wrong with the book.
