This books is just barely a three for me. I am really really torn about it. I absolutely loved the idea - it reminds me of The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Dakin - though I was sure this would be better as I liked the dystopian setting. Yet I really disliked the writing style. Juliette's "voice" was quite annoying and how it was written with no punctuation, too many strikeouts and an excessive amount of repetition was almost too much for me. Adam is the reason I kept reading and ultimately finished the book. Adam and James, and even Warner - just a little but. I really don't see myself seeking out the sequel that this one was building towards.
Oh yeah, I really disliked this cover. It just didn't fit the character or the story. I saw this cover on goodreads.com and like it much better.
