WOW! This book was smashing! It left such a deep impact on me that I have sworn to read ALL of Patrick Ness's books now.
Hello Ally Condie and other so-called dystopia authors, your books are shit, they are a disgrace to dystopia genre. Whereas this one is the real deal. A must-read.
This is the only YA book that I've read from male perspective (except Beautiful Creatures which was narrated from a guy's POV but seemed like an old woman's) and it was a pretty good experience. There was a lot of fighting, a lot of ass-kicking and a fantastic plot which gave me goose-bumps along the way.
Seriously, a BRILLIANT piece of work.
