Don’t worry, no spoilers spilled here!

Young Adult – Science Fiction – Dystopia

This was a re-read for me, but this time I listened to it on audiobook and I still really enjoyed it. I got sucked into the world that Scott Westerfeld created.

This book is largely a dystopian and was all the rage just a few short years ago. This book takes place in the future of what our world could be, where the citizens undergo a surgery to make them pretty.

I have always enjoyed reading dystopian books and this series does not disappoint, but I will say that this book is targeted to a younger crowd, but you will still enjoy it reading it as a teen or young adult! This is the kind of book that sucks you in and you just have to continue reading it to see what will happen.

The characters are well done. I love the dynamics between Tally (the main character) and the whole cast of secondary characters.

Have you read this book or this series? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
