I really loved this book. It really makes you think about your freedom. I loved the poems in the book. One of the things the society did was destroy all poems, art, books, and music, except 100 of each. I think that is a good show of how you can't really see how much you love something until its gone. I liked that this book was pretty clean. No drinking, no inappropriate things, not much death. some other things I liked were the characters. They have story's you learn through the book.
There's a little swearing, but like lots of books, you never read them. There is a bit of blood, but nothing compared to The Hunger Games. There is death, but you only experience one first hand. I don't remember if they used God's name in vain, but I think it happened once or twice. There are drugs, another thing the Society did was give everyone three pills. A green one, to calm you down, a blue one, to keep you alive, and a red one, I won't tell you what it does because thats part of the story. At one point a girl has an anxiety attack and must take a green pill. People take red pills, I'm not telling what they do. One person get's kidnapped in the middle of the night.
It is a good book, even with all of that. The message is don't give in. Ask questions, make your own decisions. I think a good age to read this book would be twelve or thirteen. Yes I know I rated it PG, but it is still a mature book, so think twice before letting your ten year old read it. I would recommend this book to people who like romance, revolution, and mystery. This has been my review, Bri!
Rated PG: Death, drugs, kidnapping, mature topics, poisoning, and implied swearing.
