    " quite the little childrens epic. "

    " took me a while to get into it, but after the first chapter, it gets easier. I must admit, I read the 3rd one first, and liked, so I tryed this one again, and got into it better "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tessa Eger | 2/16/2014

    " Illogical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/1/2014

    " Contrary to some reviews I've seen, I thought the descriptions in this book were wonderful. I'm not generally the most easy to immerse reader, but I was captivated by the small details of the society in this novel. The plot was very simplistic, as was most of the writing, which was good in some places and irritating in others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AJ Paris | 1/13/2014

    " Really a great fantasy book--for the same crowd that enjoys the City of Ember books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wisaal | 1/13/2014

    " Captured me from the first page. I found the bond between the siblings amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 1/9/2014

    " Similar concept to a lot of other books (Lord of the Rings meets The Giver) but well written and quite enjoyable. Stretches the credibility at times but worth reading and good enough to tempt me to read the other two in the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kassandra | 12/26/2013

    " The first book in a trilogy; interesting version of 'utopia'. Basically about the destructiveness of competition & ranking others. Good lit circle for students. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 12/5/2013

    " I liked it, but it was very simple. Probably for younger readers "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 11/23/2013

    " Juvenile Fiction: Brielle and I enjoyed this trilogy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meiran | 11/4/2013

    " I read this book in one sitting because it was so surprisingly compelling. I can't wait to pick up the second and third in the series, but the great thing is that this book also stands on it's own very well. It is very much in the realm of young adult literature, but that isn't a mark against it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey Foo | 10/20/2013

    " It was a great book, very concise description. It was really funny - the war between Omachaka and Omabaraka. Really looking forward to the next book in the series! (credits to Hayley for introducing the book to me) :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaminah | 9/10/2013

    " I'm only not giving this a 5 star rating because that judgement would be from when I read it about ten years ago. I have a feeling it would still be good on a reread as there were some themes in the overall trilogy that were very deep and dark and complex for YA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Val | 8/29/2013

    " I picked this up because the main character was named Bowman and ended up liking it! It's def more for kids but still had a lot of adventure and managed to keep my attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 10-11 Kaylyn | 8/18/2013

    " I have reached the last chapter and it was fa nominal!It was Amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 6/24/2013

    " I wish I would have read this when I was younger, it was like a wonderful mashup of The City of Ember and The Hobbit. So good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Ma | 4/18/2013

    " A child fantasy tale that you will find it enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 3/30/2013

    " begining was a bit boring but it got better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sylvia | 12/24/2012

    " Psychic twins in a close-knit family must go against society to make life better for everyone. Strange simplistic elements; many interesting aspects. Part 1 of trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brencis | 8/22/2012

    " When I first read this book I had no idea it was part of a series. Looks like I need the other books in my possession, like now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/7/2012

    " Very enjoyable adventure tale, gripping writing and one of those that you stay up late to finish, caring not for exams the next day... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 4/25/2012
