Monday Reads: Crossed (the review)

I mentioned Crossed by Ally Condie a couple of weeks ago in my Monday Reads post. Now here is the review. This book was just ok for me. I have to say that I enjoyed the first one a little more than this sequel. Something about this book reminds me of The Hunger Games. And because I absolutely adore The Hunger Games, anything that comes close to its story has to be done really well. Although I found the character development to be great in this book, I found the plot to be lacking. Every time I thought something exciting was going to happen or that there was going to be some big twist or reveal, I was let down. It took me a while to get through this book. I am really hoping that the third book delves deeper into the revolution that is mentioned in this book. I am hoping for a faster paced more action packed book to end the series. One thing about this book that I found confusing was the alternating characters telling the story. Although we do find out a lot of me information about our main characters, their voices are not distinct and I always found myself flipping back to the beginning of the chapter to see who is telling the story. I mention this because I am now reading Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce and she has alternating viewpoints in her book as well. The difference is that it is very easy to tell who is narrating just from the style of writing.

Look for a review on Sisters Red soon!
