I loved this book! I wasn't so sure how the book was going to go in the beginning but it was great! There is a lot of violence in this book and I was shocked by some of it but it wasn't that big of a deal for me. I guess after watching the investigation channel on tv so much changes my tolerance for violence in books. This book was really good though. I enjoyed every second of it. I was worried at first that it might turn into a copy-cat of the hunger games but was pleasantly surprised by how different and refreshing this book was. I love the different factions and their rules. I'm curious about the simulations that they had in the books too I wonder what my fear landscapes would be if I went through it.
