I really enjoyed the style and thought the author accomplished exactly what he wanted. The action starts on the first page and never lets up. I was tense throughout the entire book, which is exactly what I want in a thriller. My only complaint was that the "moral" of the story was a little heavy-handed in parts (War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.) Other than that, I was into the characters and loved the continuous action.
Again, it's a perfect thriller. It's a very unique idea - not the straight up dystopia but also not the typical espionage/spy/assasin book either. I'm usually not into the whole war/Tom Clancy/spy games genre, but the dystopian twist in this one made it much more appealing to me. It's a quick read, and completely engrossing. I'm probably going to end up forcing it on Luke.
I forgot to post this in my original post, but I want to make sure it's included. I was privileged to get to read this one as part of a Crazy Book Tour. You can find a list of other blogs that will be reviewing it as well as information about the book here. Also, check out the video trailer here.
