Book Review: Enders
Book 2 in the Starters series
AUTHOR: Lissa Price
PUBLISHED: January 7th, 2014
GENRE: Dystopian, Sci-Fi
PREMISE: Callie's fight isn't over and now she has to deal with the consequences of the deal she made...
MY REVIEW: I wish more people knew about Starters. It's definitely one of the may unsung dystopians out there. It's got an interesting premise, good writing, and a action packed plot. Its sequel, continues that.
I love dystopians that slyly comment on things that are going on now. This series takes the generation gap going on and examines it further. This is why I like dystopians. I like it when they take relevant issues going on today and then twist them around and say what if? That's what dystopians are supposed to be! Sadly, the genre's become a bit warped as of late, so dystopians that actually do this are few and far between (and usually don't become popular).
True, there are a few tropes here I could do without (love triangle, totally not needed, but there for some reason) but this remains one of the more interesting dystopian series out there that I wish more people would give a chance.
WHO SHOULD READ: Starters fans, Hunger Games fans, dystopian fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five computer chips
