Why this book?:
As soon as I saw a brief description of the new series I knew I had to try it.
I was so excited about this book. It wasn't quite what I expected, but I definitely found myself caught up in the story nonetheless. The beginning reminded me of Harry Potter, the boarding school thing, train ride there, etc.. It also had some of the Big Brother touches from 1984, and the book censorship issues from Fahrenheit 451. But it was ultimately its own book, and I enjoyed it. I look forward to book 2, Paper and Fire.
