SDCC 2013: Interview with Pierce Brown

Very interesting dystopian book. It's one of those rare dystopian books that's actually about a believable fractured, disordered society that's overwhelmed by believable social and economic problems (e.g. discrimination). But more importantly (to me, at least), no front-and-center crazy love triangles.


The writing is good. Lots of descriptions, lots of action. Things are always on the move, rarely is there a dull moment in the text.This book is the first installment of a series, and first books are usually difficult for me to rate because they're only the tip of the iceberg, but I think this one does a good job setting up events and wrapping up some of these events in a satisfying way while preparing the reader for the next series of events. You're not left hanging off a cliff... well, not that much anyway.


* Rest of review to be added later when I read it again.

What a great looking cover.
