I'll be honest, I was a little skeptical when I started this book. I am with all books in this genre and it's either a hit or a miss with me when it comes to dystopian books. But this one is kind of an inbetween. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. It was kind of okay for me. And let me be clear, 3 stars is still a good rating in my eyes. I expect certain things when I start in this book. The least of which is world building. I want to know how the world became the way it is in the novel. I want to know how it looks and how it works and such. In this book I didn't have that. Like I read in another review of this book, I was kind of thrown in the story, head first. I was very confused in this story. I didn't know what happened, how this world works,... And I still don't have a clue what the F an Aether is. Seriously. Very confusing. It was like this book was missing a sequel were everything is explained.The characters were also okay. I liked some of them, but some of them I didn't like. I liked Perry for example, but I didn't like Aria that much. I love her name, but the character... No. She was kind of annoying in my opinion. So yeah again, kind of inbetween on that part.The writing was... also okay. It wasn't bad, not at all, but it wasn't great too, so again it's inbetween. xD I liked the story and I would have loved if I had more details on the world and such. I know they live in pods and realms and all that, but I want to know how everything works and how it came to be that way, but I already said that so. The story picks up after a while and that's the part I liked. I'm not a fan of third person POV's, so that doesn't help for me. xDPlease keep in mind that this is just my humble opinion. If you're into dystopian books and you don't mind that you don't really get an explanation, then this book is probably great for you. If you have the book, you might as well give it a go. I don't know if I'm going to read the sequel, still thinking about that.
