Stylistically, I found the writing to be cinematic (I could see it like a movie unfolding) and the characters to be well drawn and breathing with a life of their own. The plot is strategically constructed and the denouement satisfying. (Can you say sequel?) Though the book charts its own unique territory, I found myself pleasantly reminded of Jonathan Swift (Gulliver's Travels), Madeline L'Engle, Suzanne Collins (the Hunger Games), Brave New World and 1984, even movies like The Matrix and many other classics (Rousseau!) as I read. It's definitely a wonderful read for true lovers of books.
There’s also a refreshing love story subplot between Mila and an agent with the rebel group along with some nice sci-fi touches.
But what I found most interesting as a reader was Mila’s determination to give people a voice in their government. Never satisfied with easy answers from the rebels or the underground group, Mila is the one who pushes for justice, despite her own fears and self-doubt.
This is a strong debut novel that focuses on a young woman with the guts to fight for what is right in the face of overwhelming odds.
We can only hope there are some Milas to fight for our freedom if our country should descend into such demagoguery.
There are some similarities to the Divergent series which I also enjoyed.
It misses 5 stars mainly for technical reasons, which is a shame because the editorial staff that most published authors have available would have taken care of the technical issues. I look forward to the next book and hopefully many more.
The characters have well-defined voices and personalities that feel genuine, so it's easy to become invested very quickly. Many novels in this genre can read stilted or cut and dry, but the prose is beautifully crafted in and of itself. It's for those reasons that I give it five stars and say it's worth a read even if you're not typically into the dystopian future novels a-la "1984" and "Brave New World." This is special.
