I didn't like how there was hardly any characterisation in any of the characters, except for the Grandfather (who was one of my favourite characters)The reference to Greek mythology (Pages 234 to 236) made me put up an extra star, just because 1. I love Greek mythology and 2. Because Sisyphus was such a good reference for a dystopian book like this. But this book . . . the only tension that occurred really happened in the last 50 pages of the text. Where was the climax, where was the rising tension throughout the book? Nowhere, thats where. There was no sense of urgency for most of the book and this really ruined it for me. I'll still try the second book though, and maybe it'll get better.
