Book Reviews

so far...this book is rocking my face off!

Breathe left me with very mixed feelings. Parts of it were outstanding and other parts were OK. I liked the plot and the characters but not enough happened to keep me completely enthralled. There is a great idea here, I loved the concept and the POD world Crossan created. I really enjoyed the dystopian elements and I liked that the love triangle was between two girls and a boy.
