Read full description of the books:
This book is one of the most awesome Scholastic books that I have ever set my eyes upon. And I would have given it five stars max were it not for some ludicrous concepts and a far-fetched, illogical ending.
Why I like the book:
1) The Dial. The whole setting is breath-taking. Well, the plan image for the prison helps a lot in stimulating the mind's eye, of course. But the ideas for the prison is well-invented, creative and it shows the dexterous capability of the author to illicit inspirational from everyday items, such as the clock. The Dial is one of the most spectacular scenes that has ever existed in a piece of fiction.
2) The straight-forward approach. In this book, there isn't any slow-paced story-telling - the approach is straight to the point and the author appeared to not have a liking in making long-winded, excruciatingly intricately detailed paragraphs that go on and on about a certain scenario that the reader gets all a. bored or b. muddled-up. So basically, the fast-paced action gets the story going in a more animated way. So you don't have to worry about falling asleep if slow, nostalgic atmospheres of story-telling (take for instance The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern) isn't your thing.
3) The plot build-up. The loopholes are there. The witty chemistry between characters is there. The suspense is there. Everything that makes a good plot is there. It's almost as if the author made a checklist and made sure that all the proper criteria were made part and parcel of "The Traitors". The intriguing and thought-provoking ideas were fresh-faced compared to the thousands of ordinary chick-lit and thriller genres swamping bookshelves around the globe. The concepts of the book were also simple to understand, despite being unique and the reader might go, "Hey, I never thought of that before!" Or maybe you did. I guess I'm the only boring, idea-barren blockhead then.
But the ending is hilarious, in a sort of way. The beginnning of the book (spoiler) mentions that the food rations are being reduced due to the fact that the transportation mode is apparently, unavailable. And at the ending, the two characters expect that they can live forever in eternity in the Dial without any means of transportation that can get food for them? Puhlease. A bit too much of naivete for me.
All in all, this book is worth a try, especially if you're a teen like me.
