Thank you Berkley Pub for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
I do no have a lot of experience with Henry’s books, but I have heard nothing but great things about them. I have read plenty of retellings, but none of the apocalyptic nature.
I did like the Before and After alternating chapters, and like a few of my fellow Bloggers I enjoyed the After chapters the most. I do like that this was a dark retelling, but not so dark that I couldn’t stomach reading it.
I liked Red, I thought she was a pretty fierce female character, and really enjoyed seeing the decrepit world that we used to know through her eyes. It’s been a good long while since I have read a apocalyptic/dystopia style of book, so I am glad I was approached about reviewing this one!
