Seriously, ready to hulk-out right now.
I am so frustrated with these characters. Maxon. America. Aspen. That God-awful king. The whole lot of them. GRRR.
First, Maxon, man, I was pulling for you in The Selection I really was. I thought, aw, what a sweet guy. Not so much anymore. Okay, I get that he has to choose a girl. I understand that he can't leave anything to chance. But to seriously say that he's head over heels for America, but have Kriss right there as back up is kind of ridiculous.
Then there's America, who is back and forth more than a ping pong ball.
Make a choice already! You are stringing these guys along!
And I'm getting a little sick of this back and forth.
And Aspen. What are you doing, dude? Come on. He deserves better. America has backburnered him. Even after Maxon rejects her (after she's told Aspen that she really still loves him) she rejects him and he tries to talk her into the marriage anyway. Grow some balls, man!
Normally, I like a love-triangle, but this is more like a messed up rhombus or something.
To both America and Aspen:
A Whole bunch of other things happened.
We find out that the Rebels are after books. I can respect that.
Oh, my gosh! Marlee. I felt so bad for her. I was so angry at Maxon at first, but later I forgave him. It was clear that he had a very good understanding of what she went through and had dome everything he could to save her.
But that's okay, because I was mad at him for other things:)
Overall, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't wait to read what happened next.
