Peeps - Scott Westerfeld
Wow. I certainly know a lot more about parasites now! This was definitely a page-turner. I couldn't put it down. I'm freaking out over a major exam but I didn't study because I had to finish this novel. Scott Westerfeld certainly knows how to spin prose along. Beautiful descriptions, and a voice that will seduce you. The amazing thing with Scott Westerfeld is that he changes his voice for each book. Not just when the character's thinking. He changes the prose to fit the protagonist. THAT is something that I haven't seen in young adult books for a long time. The plot will keep you on your toes, and you will fall in love with the main characters almost immediately. Twists and turns abound, and most of them you won't see coming. I would have rated this five stars in a heartbeat, except for the ending. Don't get me wrong, the concept is cool (marvelous even) but I didn't like some details of it. I'll keep this a spoiler-free review so I can't say what that is. But an action-packed, fascinating read that I'm going to recommend to a bunch of my friends. :)
