This book is part of my 2014 Library. Hurrah!
My friend lent me this book. The setup was one of the most intriguing synopses I’ve ever read. The moment I had the book on my hand, I felt excited that I really wanted to read it right away, but I couldn’t because I was at school.
So I finally opened this book at home. The beginning was kind of confusing, but engaging at the same time. But it really got more ‘exciting’ the more I read. I mean, even though it is narrated in third person POV, I could quite easily enter into Jonas’ character.
The more things were revealed about their community, the more [I] Jonas felt blinded to what were really going on. And that is why it made my heart race every time a truth was unveiled.
Looking back, this is not really a book I would recommend just for everyone, as it lacks the ‘excitement’ or fast-paced action or events that most people would want to see in a movie. However, the book has played so well in stirring emotions and many thoughts within me. And what it has done to me was a pleasure that I can call my own. It left me awestruck that I couldn’t stop thinking about it for several days.
