When She Woke

When She Woke - Hillary Jordan I loved this novel. Again, like most books these days, the end was a bit disappointing, but just because it didn't make me go wow. The rest of the story, however, did. It was paced nicely and dealt with a lot of issues that are important today. It's not difficult at all to see how our current society could easily become this world. I think that's the most effective and frightening type of distopian literature. Towards the end of the book, there was an event, a choice made by the main character, Hannah, that didn't feel in keeping with her character or the novel. It didn't take away from the story, really, but it was a bit jarring. I also would have liked more of a journey in the last part of the book. It felt a bit short, but maybe that's just all the Stephen King I've been reading...
