An excellent work of dystopian literature and the inspiration behind George Orwell's 1984.

I have read this book, and the series before, but because it was so odd I forgot most of it. I really like the series, and this book, but it is on the strange side. I did find the characters likable, though, which helped me understand their positions throughout the story.

I can't believe this is the last book! I just love the series so much I don't want it to end! But it ended spectacularly and I couldn't ask for a better ending to an amazing series. Give me a few months and I'll probably re-re-re-read it again!
