Book Review #1016
The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This book sent shivers up my spine. I was fascinated and horrified with this culture and the attitudes of the people. The story was very engaging and I felt myself turning each page to see what would happen next. Although I enjoyed this novel and thought the concept was intriguing, I did feel like it had some flaws. I wasn't completely convinced that all of the characters were realistic. I felt like several of the characters needed to be fleshed out. I also wasn't a fan of the violence portrayed in the book - it was slightly gruesome and I didn't like reading it. The ending was a little bit of a let-down. I wanted some concrete answers, but it didn't give any. I wasn't a big fan of the romance either. I probably wouldn't recommend this book.
