The reason I read this book was because of the summary. After I read the summary I needed to read this book. So here it is form the author’s website:
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
This book is a dystopia book which I think will become very popular like the other very popular dystopia books right now. This book is told in a male point of view which isn’t very common so I think that makes it different from other books and able to appeal to boys and girls. The other books I reviewed for this blog might not appeal to boys so this is an especially good book because it appeals to everyone. The concept of the Heist is really explained in the book and developed which makes it easier and more enjoyable to read. Taken is a fun, fast read. There are many plot twists, which make things interesting, intriguing, and a quick read. It does feel like it is moving a little fast sometimes. There are romantic feelings between characters which I really liked. They are not the main focus but added on nicely to the plot.
If you liked the Hunger Games you will like this book too.
Bottom Line: Read this book. I think it’s going to be the next popular book that everyone reads.
P.S.- The sequel to this book ( it’s going to be a trilogy) is coming out on April 15th.
going to barnes & noble always gets my blood pumpin and reminds me im alive
If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all
Catching Fire is actual proof that if you stick to the book’s plot, the movie will do fantastic.
those days after you finish reading a good book that has a sad ending and you dont know what to do with your life anymore because you’re still stuck in the sadness of the book
