I enjoyed this book, even through all the gruesome violence, because of its emphasis on brains and cunning and escaping fights rather than winning them. I also liked that the obligatory love storyline was not the usual love triangle, although it may not be as straightforward as it seems. I am definitely looking forward to the sequel. Recommended for fans of these post-apocalyptic or dystopian futures and those who can deal with more than a little gore and violence.
