lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The Selection - Kiera Cass Many problems with this book -- the characters were very one-dimensional, the dialoge didn't feel real, and the plot was fairly boring. Also, I didn't like that the caste system wasn't explained. How did such a ridiculous thing ever come into being in North America, and is it also practiced in other continents of this dystopian universe? If the author was trying for suspense and build-up for the next novel, she just left me annoyed.(Now that I know she can't even take criticism I am even more annoyed. No more books by Kiera Cass for me.)
