Yeah, another Amazon cover in which I'm too lazy to remove the "Click to look inside!" thing.
I read this book a month ago but never posted a review, so here it is.
7. The Action Was Boring. And the book really confused me, it was too hard to understand.
8. How Did This Happen? Elana Johnson on her own blog admits she hadn't bothered with a backstory for Possession! I mean it was confusing enough, but really? This was too hard to believe considering there are sadly far more believable forms of mind control.
9. Not Having Pets. This reminded me of a scene in the movie Equilibrium (Christian Bale!), as in way a lot.
10. George Orwell much? The ending made me think of 1984, only cheesier and with no rats.
Really, I can't think of any part I liked about this book. I remember seeing it in the store and thinking it sounded great, I almost even bought it (thankfully I bought Hate List and Julie Anne Peter's She Loves You, She Loves You Not instead, which are also two of my most favorite books, this one definitely not one). So I'm glad I spent the cash instead on Jennifer Brown and Julie Anne Peters!

1 tiny little star.
What do I reccomend instead of this?
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
1984 and Animal Farm (yes, a book about pigs) by George Orwell
The Giver by Lois Lowry since it also shares similar themes
Christian Bale's Equilibrium (yeah, it's a movie, but hey it's better)
