Convince us to read the book: This book was amazing because of the dystopian themes and twisted reality. It sucks you in like a whirlwind with a beginning that leaves you wondering after every page. The narrative tension steadily rises all the way through the book until the climax when all of a sudden, all the wondering begins to put itself together into a finished puzzle.
Memorable or Forgettable: Some of the qualities that made this book memorable for me was its dystopian themes and mild humor. Some more qualities were the strange setting and the ignorance of the character's companions.
Cover: The cover tempted me to pick up the book because of its mysterious look and somewhat frightening picture. But the cover did not reflect too well the contents of the book.
