Ok, so I am sort of kicking myself for only visiting the official website after finishing this book. It has this really awesome diagram of the ship that I wish I had known about, to refer to instead of just the diagrams in the book. (I read an ARC, so I don't know what the maps in the finished version look like.) Just wanted to start with that, because I highly recommend checking it out.
As for the book--I really enjoyed this. Another book that's right up my alley, with its dystopian/sci-fi themes. I think many fans of these genres might love it. I am very impressed that this is a debut book. It sucks you right in and is so well-written and thought provoking. Yet another book that I wish had been around when I was a teen.
Now, I am a "the book is better person", but I really think that this story would make a great movie. Just thought I'd throw that out there, since so many YA books seem to be turned into movies these days :P
So yes, I highly recommend this if you are a fan of this type of book. I also read that it is the first of a trilogy, and I will definitely be checking out the next book and anything else by this author.
