really appreciated this. I didn't have to wait for the story to start, I just jumped right into the action. There were many moments when I just didn't know how Ember was going to get out of her current predicament (but knowing there are two sequels I figured that somehow she would manage) and read this book almost straight through without any breaks (only took one break from it actually, that is how good it is). While I wouldn't completely compare it to The Hunger Games there are quite a few similarities: survival, the need to protect family, finding out that the world is an even scarier place than originally imagined are just a few. But I felt that the characters in Article 5 are much stronger and that the pacing was better. I look forward to reading the rest of the series! Simmons has a winner with this book!
And Happy Valentine's Day too! If you are looking for a lovey-dovey book for today, I don't recommend this one. I don't read many romances so I'm not the best to suggest them. But for me books=love!
