At the beginnig of the bookI really hoped that this book will be very good because I’ve heard so many good reviews about it and when I find out that this book wiull become a movie, I needed to read it. The first 30-50 pages bored me a little bit because there was just Caasie who is living in the forest and thinking about her world and situation right now. But as she started to talk about past, the flashbacks, I got curious about the story and so I read on.
I’m also totaly fascinated about the many perspective changes in the book, because so you can figure out how a little boy (Sammy, Cassies brother), a Silencer (I won’t tell you who or what this is !) Cassie or Ben are going through this situation.
All in all I was so surprised of the book because when I read the book, I imagined this would hapen in real life and what I would do now. I also had so much pity on Sammy because I’m having also a little brother and couldn’t imagine doing him all these things what Sammy did.
I can recommend this book and don’t judge me if you are not the same opinion because that’s just my opinion.
