Very interesting

There are a few swear words, but it is appropriate enough so it is OK. The romance is not too geeky either. There is a lot of violence, but there are good role models and messages. It gives you some scientific facts as well. I recommend it!!

One of my favorite books. A great dystopian novel with a fresh set of ideas.

Great Book for older teens

My 6th grade 11 1/2 year old daughter read this and loved it. I then read it and loved it - but there was some inappropriate language (though used appropriately and not gratuitously) and certainly more sexual activity than I felt comfortable with for my pre-teen. In hindsight, I would preferred that she waited a year or two before reading this book. This is a beautiful love story and I can't wait for the sequel. Certainly appropriate for teens.

Great Message!

Great book! It had a really good theme and message. I think that kids 14 and older can comprehend adequately that we need to have passion in life, and it is a great lesson to be learned.
