Book 44: Reached

23 May

reachedReached by Ally Condie

 

The Pilot. The Poet. The Physic. What a way to end it! Man I was on one of those little roller coasters chapter by chapter. The Society. The Rising. The Pilot. The Plague. So much capitalization. But yes I really really liked that Cassia was not immune to the Plague/red pills. It made her more relatable and less of the superbrain that she is. And her trying to remember the red garden day. Ughhh. Bram grew up so much, I want more Bram! And Lei, Lei, Lei. Ally Condie you sly girl you. I don’t have a favorite part or line here, but it’s okay, I loved the book as a whole. 🙂 But throughout the whole series, Cassia was definitely my favorite, then Ky, and then all the others are jumbled together. Haha. Although I don’t dab in most poetry, I shall end this post with one of my favorite poems, since poems played such a large role in the series.

 

Fire and Ice

by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

    Great review. I totally agree with you about Cassia and the red pills, it made it more interesting. I really liked this book the best because you get all three viewpoints.

      I agree, having Xander’s (along with Ky and Cassia) really worked well with the book! After reading this, now I know why everyone always recommended it to me.
