Alright! To me the book series seems adventurous. The storyline is great with a few dead spots in between that as a girl were catered to the guy readers, but I loved the themes behind it and the intricate plot ( the big idea behind the whole–for which I’m not spoiling). The reader is completely entranced in book three trying to figure out how America got in this mess and what they are doing to get out.
Now the movie. Fabulous “scary movie”. I say this because it seems the book series is more of an adventure and the movie more a horror flick with a better plot twist than others. I absolutely love both and will read and watch again if not to pick apart why I like both for different reasons.
Sum it up—
Book- adventurous, Dystopian earth trying to save itself!
Movie-scary horror with a better plot twist than an other !
5 STAR BOOK!
Wow! Such a great read! Picked this up because I received a free poster of it for my classroom and now on my top ten to read again and again list. If you like King Arthur and Merlin but looking for a little more LOVE and seeing it from the female’s perspective…here you go!
From reading the different point of views to the main characters (refuse to give a spoiler here because it is just THAT GOOD **assassins and princes, oh my!) I will reread this book just to discover their stories all over again.
Pearson did a fabulous job capturing my version of what Cinderella should have been. Don’t mistake this for being a version of Cinderella in the least, but what MY vision of what the REAL Cinderella would have been like if she’d been as crafty as this girl. Not all simple-minded and naive….but brave and human in a real sense.
Take a chance on it.
