General fiction, Sci fi


In brief


I read a lot of dystopian and post-apocalyptic books, but this... this was something else.

I've read books that have made me paranoid (Life as We Knew it), I've read books that have a horrible premise (Hunger Games) and I've read books that don't pull back the gross factor (Gone), but Pure hit on all these things. It was scary in a whole new way, and the parts you figured were going to be totally predictable had enough of a twist on them to keep them fresh.

Yes, this book disturbed me. Yes, it was kind of intense reading. Yes, I am counting the days until the next one.
