Waste of time and energy
am 14. Januar 2016
This is the worst book I have read in a long time. Intrigued by the theme I picked it up, but was already doubting whether that was a good idea after the first 30 pages or so. I kept reading in the hope it would improve, but it didn't. If anything, it got worse.
The protagonist is a completely flat character whose stupidity, incapability to evaluate situations/ things presented to her/ views from others... and inablity to grow made me feel physically ill. I was hoping throughout the book that the author intended her to act like a marionette in order to make a point, but I am afraid that this wasn't the intention, as the book wouldn't be so achingly repetitve otherwise. There really is no need to fill half the pages with numbers and invaluable, uninteresting zings and comments in order to make a point.
None of the characters is believable, they are badly developed (if at all) and the theme itself doesn't hit the spot. I found the mentioning of actual names and their history in the real world completely out of place when out of millions of people there was only one (by the end of the book a couple more) critical voice against the Circle. Either base the whole book on an actual background, or write fiction only.
Don't waste your time on this book.
