Ravenous
Ravenous by Heidi Loney
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was given this book free for review. If it wasn’t for that and a fascinating plot, and characters I cared about, I would have not finished reading it.

If there is one thing for sure, that drew me in, I love dystopia books. Not fond of zombies, oops, lombies. (Still not sure where that come from.)

Then I am a frustrated greenhorn farmer living in an apartment, so reading about the commune type living was a welcome relief.

Try as I might, I couldn’t get past the present tense method of presenting the story. It didn’t, as it sometimes does, make the story more gripping. In fact, I felt, it made the characters seem self absorbed, even conceded. I don’t think that was the author’s intent. And then, at the end, it changed suddenly as we learned of Madge’s recent history. Once I was used to being in Madge’s mind I wished the story had included her more as she had a sort of toughness that Calla didn’t show.

As a maternal person, I was glad to see the attitudes of sex and protection, etc. Good things, I think, for young adults to read.

The sequel is still calling to me as I long to see what happens with everyone. I bet the author’s writing has improved. I look forward to seeing more.

Thank you for letting me read your book, Heidi Loney.

Dar49 Daily. Is out. I am a little disappointed with the Paper.li robots as there were so many repeats that I felt I would have no paper if I deleted all of them. I guess the robots are on vacation while playing reruns. 😦
