Dark plot and repulsive characters
The writer barely exposes enough detail to keep the reader going until the last page. Great story, with a very realistic but ugly plot. As the antagonists, Brint and Grey were some of the most repulsive characters ever, with their hidden motives.
This book is not very good. I guess it's kind of an okay read, but it's a little boring, and there are certainly many better reads out there. Try one of those instead. This one just wasn't really worth my time.
Robert Cormier is a genius. While this is considered a young adult level novel, it does not talk down to readers. Very sophisticated plotting. Fantastic twist ending that will have you re-reading the beginning for the clues you missed. Highly recommended.
