Ending: /5
Total Score: /20

I liked that it was so different then whats out there right now. It was a good break from vampires. Haha. I loved the plot in general, really.

I didn't like(and it may be odd) that it was sooo gruesome but there was no swearing. The author went to great lengths to not swear, they should have been careful about how vivid the violence was if they cared so much about who the reader was. While I don't like reading swear words, I could have do with the gore toned down a little.

Plot: 5/5(Great plot. No real holes and it reeled you in)
Setting/Imagery: 5/5(Loved the "end of everything" theme. Very vivid descriptions)
Originality: 4/5(while it was different I still feel it's a cross between City of Ember and Running Games)
Ending: 4/5(I wanted it to be "happier")
Total Score: 18/20

It was a great book that is hard to put down. One that I can read over and over again and not get sick of!

I'm still learning my way around your blog :) But your reference to 'City of Ember' peeked my interest in the book - although I'm a little skeptical of all the gruesome! When will you announce your next read?
