We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . . Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.Burn a Pure and Breathe the Ash . . . There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss-maybe just because his family is broken; his father is emotionally distant; his brother killed himself; and his mother never made it inside their shelter. Or maybe it's his claustrophobia: his feeling that this Dome has become a swaddling of intensely rigid order. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her. When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

I randomly picked up this book while I had a long wait at an airport. I don't ever have the time to finish a book in one sitting but I did with this one. Even though it is 430 pages I gobbled it up. I was immediately drawn into the world that Julianna Baggott built and enjoyed the characters. I'm always a sucker for any type of Dystopia!

The world-building is phenomenal.

Enhanced nuclear weapons have destroyed nearly everything. The survivors have been fused with whatever they were holding (or standing next to) during the Detonation, creating grotesque mutations. Pressia has a doll's head for a hand.

The Pures were safe from the Detonations, protected inside of the Dome. Partridge is one of them.

Pressia and Partridge soon find out that more than mere chance binds them.

This book deserves a 4 out of 5 ⭐ due to world building!

I just love this world, it is very well constructed.

I do believe tho there could have been more character development throughout the book

However it was still very entertaining and fun and amazingly written so, i rate this a 4 out of 5 ⭐

Loved this when I was in high school. Haven't read it since, but I'm going to assume my feelings haven't changed. I love dystopia and this one was definitely unique. 5/5 stars

#riotgrams #currentread This is actually a reread for me since I let too much time elapse between reading it and starting the sequel and now I don't remember what happens 😑

Even though the dystopia genre has been adapted within an inch of its life, I still believe #ThisShouldBeAMovie. #SeasonsReadings16

This book is absolutely amazing, I feel like it doesn't get the hype it deserves! The world is unlike anything I have ever read. Makes hunger games look like a tea party! I love the plot and the beautiful writing!

Interesting premise that felt a lot like Oryx and Crake mixed with some Divergent and a good slathering of steampunk. I think her world is amazing. The characters not so much.
