Book Review: Resist
Book 2 in the Breathe Duet series
AUTHOR: Sarah Crossan
PUBLISHED: October 2013
PREMISE: Bea, Alina, and Quinn continue their journey, only now they're outlaws...
MY REVIEW: Breathe was one of those blink and you'll miss it dystopians from 2012. There were a lot of those, because frankly, there was an overload of dystopians in 2012. Personally, I blame the Hunger Games movie for that.
There wasn't anything really wrong with Breathe. It just came out at a time when the genre it was in was in over-drive and it didn't really stand out among the crowd of new dystopians trying to take Hunger Games place. That continues with Resist. There's nothing really wrong with it...it just doesn't really stick with you. Also, the author has way too many point of views going on. Seriously, there are FOUR here. That's...a little excessive.
If you liked Breathe though, this one should please you (unless like me you were a fan of a certain character...). So for fans of the first, this will be a nice finish to a book they enjoyed. For everyone else, it's just another dystopian series book.
WHO SHOULD READ: Dystopian fans not tired of the genre, fans of Breathe
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five domes
