I couldn't put this book down. It was captivating! Sometimes I would have to re-read a chapter because I missed something. I like female heroines, because I can typically relate to the character. Overall this book is great!

Fever Crumb is definitely not the sort of stuff I generally read (although I'm pretty open to anything) but I figured I'd give it a try anyways. It definitely was intriguing, however by the second book I felt the story's conclusion was really rushed and easy to get lost in (and not in a good way). Fever is definitely a cool heroine though; not one you normally come across.
I found Reeve's method of writing entertaining. It made it a little bit easier to wrap my head around the concept of the post-apocalyptic world and all the different customs, beliefs, etcetera considering one could say I more or less came across this book not sure what to expect at all.

I have to agree with the person two comments down from me.
After the second part it became pretty messed up.

loved this book. I especially enjoyed all the quirky versions of actual London place names in the post apocalyptic setting. Well-paced, and very visual.

I never got a firm grasp on the setting. I was really frustrated by that.
