Underground, review


*This review will only be in english because this book is not translated into portuguese. *

Thanks to the author for sending me your book. (This does not affect the honesty of my review). 

Seventeen-year-old Thia Clay lives in a society where women have no rights. Thia holds little hope for a bright future and less hope she has when her parents sell her into a marriage with a rich, cruel, selfish young man, William Fox. When the girl meets Chi her whole world changes. There are a lot more things and problems in the world than she thought: secrets that the government hide and a rebellious group seeking to overthrow the government are some examples.

When devastating secrets surface from Chi's past, Thia has to rely on her instincts to make a choice that could save her or destroy her forever.
I really enjoyed this reading. It was a quick read and it fulfilled his duty: to entertain me. With this I want to say that I liked this book but I found some troubles in it.
But lets talk first about the aspects I liked:
The author's writing is clear and simple which helps to increase the rhythm of the reading and to understand better the book.
In spite of accepting what the parents wanted for her future, Thia is not convinced. Thia is a strong character who, despite being forced by her society to be a totally different person from who she really is, never forgets her true personality and her dreams.
There was a part that I totally loved. I was not expecting that and I think it was the best part of the book... I will not say which part was causeeee SpOiLeRs.
Other aspect that I liked had to do with the number of children that a couple could have. It was dictated by the importance that the family had in society. Lower class, could not have children, the medium could only have one and the upper class could have two.
I liked the story, however, I felt that it was very predictable. "A girl has a arranged marriage but then she meets a boy and finally understands the bad society that she lives in and it is worse than she thought. Than she discovers about this group that wants to change the world and to do a revolution to overthrow the government..." I have seen this too many times, and the problem is not only with this book, we also can see this in Hunger Games, Shatter me, etc...
I have to rate this book with a 3,9/5.
I actually want to know what will happen next, I have faith in it as I know what the author is capable of. I know that it can be better.

  1. Pela leitura da opinião parece ser um livro que tinha aspectos interessantes mas que, infelizmente, caiu na repetição de histórias tantas vezes já lidas e que pouco acrescenta.
