I did not enjoy this book, but admittedly, it is not my genre. I read it for my book club this month. I'm just not into the futuristic/dystopian kind of thing. The first half of this book had almost no action whatsoever and was incredibly boring to me. The first mildly exciting thing finally arrived at 35%. I'm also not into political themes and this one was very political. Just not my cup of tea, but at least now I understand what people are talking about when they mention it.

Much easier read than I expected. Sagged a bit in the middle but still really... enjoyable?
