  • The thousandth floor

    I thought this book had the potential to be interesting, but I figured out pretty quickly that the story is not for me. While there were some elements that were cool, the things that I was most interested in were barely developefd. For example, the tower itself. It seemed to be an intruiging, sci-fi version of NYC, however the worldbuilding was not great and the story turned instead to the drama in each characters life, which I found hard to get into. This brings me to the characters themselves. While I didn't hate most of them, I didn't find them compelling either. There are four girl narrators, and one guy. Avery, who from the very start of the book (hence not a spoiler) is in love with her adopted brother. Yes, I know they are not genetically related. No, that does not make me feel less creeped out by it. Then there was Leda, Eris, Rylin, and Watt. Watt also came across as creepy, since he uses his tech genius abilities not for something helpful, but to stalk girls. Rylin was too far removed from the main storylines, though this may change in the sequel. Eris was perhaps the most compelling, if her character had been used differently. (Mariel, a girl Eris meets along her storyline, was probably my favorite, which, when you have five narrators to focus on, doesn't seem like a good thing) And Leda... She leads to my next topic. SO much girl hate. None of them could have a positive, developed friendship? And the ones who did, they let a guy come between them. Especially in such a futuristic story, can't we please be past this? Besides that, I felt that a lot of characters were shoved into racial stereotypes. Leda, In particular, who was a drug addict and kind of a psycopath. Also, Avery, who is by design genetically "perfect" is, of course, white, blonde, and blue eyed. I truly think spreading these stereotypes through media is worse than having no diverse characters at all. There was heavy drug use by various characters for no apparent reason, which I also was not a fan of. In all, this book was not for me. Many details felt ingenuine, while the plot focused on the drama and ups and downs in the lives of characters I personally had trouble connecting with. Then again, many people really like it, so if you're interested by the description and want to try it, don't let me stop you. I just won't be reading the sequel.

  • Amazing book

    This is one of my favourite books! There are many characters, and the story is told from many different viewpoints, but everything relates nicely and it doesn't become too confusing. This story has many twists and many moments that made me go Oh! This is a book that really made me think about the secrets everyone has and how there is a good and a bad side to everything - and every person. I reccommend this book to pretty much any teenager. AMAZING book!

  • Wow

    Wow. Stakes are high in this novel packed with secrets, lies, and stolen romance, where everybody has some thing to lose. One of the most gripping, thrilling novels I've ever read. Can't wait to read the rest of this series!!!|
