Pure (Pure, #1)Pure by Julianna Baggott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pure depicts a dystopian world where the survivors are an atomically fused steampunk culture clawing through a post-detonation existence under the shadow of The Dome, and while it’s hard to read this book, the first of a planned trilogy, and not think of The Hunger Games, Ms. Baggott’s prose is miles ahead of the latter work, keeping the reader glued to the story and its three-dimensional characters.  This should be the next young adult series to take hold…

  1. kewl. i’m reading hunger games right now at the request of my daughters. looking forward to that other book you recommended once i finish this. seems i have another to add to the list perhaps.

  2. I really like her writing, but I just finished Hunger Games so I may have to wait a while to read this so that I can get the Hunger Games out of my system. Thank you for the recommendation. I didn’t even know she was writing a dystopian novel.

    • I read Hunger Games about 4 months ago so something in between is probably a good idea. Will be eager to see when the next in the series goes. Thanx for stopping by.

      • I definitely need a break from that sort of novel. I gobbled them up in a weekend, so I think I may have over did it. I’m definitely adding Pure to my list though.
