*Mafi's prose isn't like anything I've read anytime recently in YA lit. It's so lyrical and lovely that in some places it comes very near to poetry. There are a few moments where i find myself saying "Really?" but those are rare. For the most part I find it refreshing to read something so different.
*The world in this book is bleak, and I've only seen a little bit of it so far. I'm really hoping we get more before the end of the book.
That's all for now! Stay tuned for more updates and thoughts.
