Good book. I recommend it for those who like dystopian books.

This kind of reminded me of another book because the story line was the storyline was the same. It was kind of like someone copied the story and the idea. But overall it was a great book and it was a page-turner as well. The synopsis was really great and that really made me look forward to it. It wasn't really exciting through the whole story and I don't recommend it to people who like action packed books. I also think that it could have been more well described. So not that great but pretty good.

Such a great read, I usually choose a book to read based on the cover and the synopsis. I am glad that I picked up the first and second part of the book Trilogy. I am glad to be reading books again. My long Lost Love

One of the best books I have read in a while. A great psychological thriller that keeps you thinking all the way through and long after you put it down. I think the best thing about Slated is that it is all too real in the way that it could one day happen in this world. The squeal, Fractured, is just as good, if not better in the way it twists the mind and the plot by including different subplots. Gripping, fast-paced and never a dull page. These books easily rival The Hunger Games. An unputdownable thriller!

A good read that is fascinating. The second book will hopefully answer some of the questions and fill in the missing character story lines. I hope that the story continues to follow through with some of the missing characters from this book.

I LOVE this book. Picked it up as a lark b/c character has my name but turns out she really doesn't!! Really good read for student book clubs about what total government power could mean. And unlike so many teen books, the romance isn't the main storyline.

I read this book recently. It was so good that i had finished it within 48hours. If you loved the hunger games series you will love this book.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A few scenes involving blood. It wasn't very descriptive which is good. A bit frightening but i wouldn't say intense

Coarse Language: There is a bit of foul language. Not a lot and barely enough to worry about. I can't actually remember a particular scene where a word was used.

Violence: A very small bit of violence but just near the end of the book

Simple is hard enough. Who needs complicated?

Pain can kill, all on its own: the body goes into shock and shuts down.

Use the fear; feed the anger.

It is one thing to ask questions; what do you do with the answers?
