One of my book groups has a monthly challenge. The challenge was dystopian fiction for the month of May. When I put Dystopian in the search feature of the library this book came up. After starting I realized its not dystopian it is post-apocalyptic. Since I had started it I figured I should finish it.

The novel is set in upstate NY after the 2nd world war which included the firing of nuclear missiles. There are roving bands of Slaverunners, looking for people to entertain them in “Arena Fights”. Brooke lives in the Catskills with her sister hiding from these roving bands, one day her sister is captured and taken to NYC. The rest of the story is Brooke chasing after the gang to rescue her teamed up with Ben, whose brother was also taken.

This was the most ridiculous novel I have ever read. I like the action scenes, they flowed quickly but there was so much that was unbelievable that it interfered with my enjoyment of the book. I can’t really explain without giving away spoilers, just to say I’m glad I was able to read this in a day or I would have probably been upset at how much time was wasted reading it.

If you would like to read the other review with spoilers the password is Spoilers.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
