am reading the second book now and unlike many says this is not at all boring...it is good continuation of the first part.this series though not the greatest literary creations but sure keeps you hooked to it.the characters are vividly sketched and you will definitely love them...the twists and turns are also nice.overall its a nice light read which is a definite page turner! :)
Racy, great plot, brilliant characterisation...It is about wars, sci-fi, reality TV, coming-of-age, authoritarianism, etc Unputdownable. It is violent though, but the violence is justified.
