I only just read this - I really loved Conner. He kinda reminds me of Percy (the quirky leader thing :P)
I wish I had read it sooner! I mean, I saw this art AGES ago.

Aw yay Connor! I agree, he is flawed, has his quirks, but that is what makes him so realistic and likable! He's not perfect. I love the way you drew him!

So you probably get this a lot. Anywho, I read this book entirely on your non face-to-face, we've never met each other recommendation. Here are my thoughts...

I LOVED IT!! The writing, the characters, the story!! AUUUGGGGHH! Choking on awesomeness right now. As an English student, I could not get over the amazing writing. As a human being, I could not get over everything else. I loved the complexity of Connor's character.

Thank you for inadvertently bringing this book into my life. You have very good taste in books.

Neal Shusterman has another series that I'm pretty sure is in this same writing style. The first one is called Everlost.

The sci-fi setting and present tense writing is the same in The Hunger Games too, but you've probably already read that one.

:iconmissuscinna:
MissusCinna Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Kind of...THG is first-person present tense and Unwind's third-person. It's more like Cryer's Cross.

I'm reading a non fiction book for school called "The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks". It's a good book. Pretty sad though... *sobbing*
