ABOUT

Book Description

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

quite frankly i didn't really like the book that much. But after reading all of the comments on here, there may actually be something i agree with. I read it pretty quickly, too. An easy, pleasent read. But not something so breathtakingly good, as other books i've read, which this book was compared too, like the hunger games or matched. I kept reading about this perfect girl, who was sweet and talented and just not flawed in any way except her poor background. Winning the prince over with her kindness, and "hidden beauty" has just become so unoriginal now! There have been thousands of those stories already told, and books already written. I just didn't feel connected with this character, as she was simply too flawless. With her acts of kindness, her background and even her red hair, she stood out from the rest, in such an almost ridiculous attempt to make her seem different. And in the world of books different is always the best. But in this book the writer tried too hard to make the charachter different from the rest;to make her this pure hearted cinderella girl. And cinderella isn't realistic! I know this book isn't, either, but I needed at least a little bit more realism and connection to the character, which i just didn't get in this one. And even some parts of the book where like taken out of a story book. An evil girl ripping her dress. Have we heard that one before? What about the one of the girl who wanted to wear pants instead of ballgowns, is that one new to us? Although i did not like the book too much, i think it would be great as a movie. Really. I would watch it.
