Legend by Marie Lu

Darby, 15
Marie Lu
G.P. Putnam's Sons 2011

Legend is another book set post-America like The Hunger Games and the Eleventh Plague.  It's world includes an oppressive government, labor camps, and twist a bit familiar but worth reading all the same. A sequel will be needed and I found that it's explaination of the situation is confusing.  Marie Lu relied too much on the reader's infering skills. To get through the book requiered me looking back multiple times and stopped every once in a while to prevent a brain overload. Still the book wrapped up well and held my attention.

Rating: 4 Better than most
