Dystopian and Anti-Hero Book Reviews

I won the book Matched, by Ally Condie, from Karissa's blog (Thanks!) and I loved reading it!

First of all the cover is awesome.  This is a case where it's okay to judge a book by it's cover.  The picture is pretty and it has a very cool rainbow like holographic effect.

The book is about a dystopian future and a girl that is beginning to see the problems with the society she lives in. There are similarities to the society in The Giver, but this book focuses more on the main character then on the society.  I really enjoyed this book!  See Karissa's review here since she describes it far better then I can.






 The second book I want to tell you about is Something Missing: A Novel by Matthew Dicks.  The main character is a thief who thinks of his victims as "clients."  This was a fun fast read and it's a departure from the standard story line.  There are some great comic moments in the book and I highly recommend it.
