When I started this book, I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to like it, despite enjoying the original series. I had trouble understanding the main character and didn’t particularly like her. However, I don’t feel it’s necessary to like a character, as long as I can love their story.
The more I read, the more this grew on me. I actually started to understand the MC more and more, and I appreciated the ways she changed and grew throughout the story. I also really enjoyed the wide variety of guys and all of their interesting personalities.
If you secretly love the bachelor, this book is probably for you. If you haven’t read the original trilogy though, I recommend you do that first. It’s a bit light on the dystopia and heavy on the romance and drama, so I often wish that balance was reversed. However, it’s a different, fun read. I’m happy I kept going long enough to give this story and its characters a chance.
