Finally, I have read an actual FIVE START book! I casually purchased this book one day at Half Price Books, not expecting it to be so good! The entire story line captured me and made me think about it long after reading it. Neal Shusterman did a great job in creating this marvelous story. I would recommend this book to other YA readers but also to adults looking for a dystopian-ish type read. Its not a very kiddie book like some YA books come off as. I am currently reading Thunderhead which is the second book to this series. I am about half way finished with it and am quite enjoying it. Not enjoying it as much as Scythe but Scythe was so good that I would be reading ANYTHING that comes after it!
