People have been talking and talking about this book, and I've put it off until now. The recent movie has made it all the rage once again, but I don't really get it. It is an interesting enough story - and I say that knowing that science fiction is not my usual cuppa - but it isn't outright amazing. In fact, it was rather confusing in parts. Then, there was this "big reveal" that caught me off guard, only because I had already understood that plot point to be a done deal in the story and NOT a major twist. Not even a little bit.
I did enjoy the narration in multiple points of view. This allowed us to see what was going on in different geographic areas at the same time as well as feeling closer to a couple of characters who were not Cassie. But on the whole, eh - I could have passed and been just fine. I don't think I'll read the rest of the trilogy. I'm also not going to go out of my way to see the movie, but I have heard some terrifically horrible things about it so if I get the chance, I might catch a scene or two.
