Red Rising; Pierce Brown

Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1)Red Rising by Pierce Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A lot of promise, but because this will be a trilogy there were parts that just dragged... and dragged... Plus there's a lot that felt like a more vicious version of The Hunger Games, like the Houses being pitted against each other, with a fight to, well, not the death but pretty damn close. My guess is that this will appeal to boys more because of the greater violence and the POV.

  1. You nailed it. The violence was Hunger Games multiplied a hundred times or so. I like the premise and the character. I'm hoping the violence scales back, but...
