Started reading this book yesterday afternoon and finished it at 2 this morning. So, I can def say that you shouldn't start reading unless you have a large block of time to finish it because you wont want to put it down once you start. That being said, I can say that although I thought it was a good book, I'm happy I finally read it, and I think it totally deserves all of the accolades it has been receiveing, it wasn't my favorite book ever. It was well written with great characters and a good premise. I have read a lot of dystopian genre books lately and I feel like there are some great ones out there published last year, but with all that you could choose from , this one definitely deserves to be place among the top five.
