Although this world seemed idealistic and intriguing in the beginning, it quickly becomes apparent that it is anything but. The book left me wondering if the grass was greener on the other side. I hope so.

This book made me think about the benefits and drawbacks of order, routine and duty. I am glad we live in this world, even though it can be painful and unruly.

Reread this book and as with most dystopian novels it makes you think about the norms of society. The copy I read had a great intro by the author written just prior to the movie being released, it was interesting to hear her take on the popularity of the book and some of the negative comments she received.
