One Comment:

  1. I really wanted to like “Article 5” but it just didn’t live up to the hype (or even the description!) It was an okay read, but that’s it…just okay.

    First of all, I felt as if I had read this book before. Totalitarian society, complete with militia? Handmaid’s Tale, the Hunger Games, even 1984 (if you replace the militia with thought police) have that. Reform schools for teens? Declaration is one of many books that comes to mind. A resistance and underground railroad of sorts? Sounds like When She Woke or dozens of other dystopias. There was literally nothing unique in this story and the world just wasn’t developed enough for me not to feel like it was a retread. My major issue was that the main character, Ember, was completely unlikable and in fact, rather naive and, well frankly, stupid.

    I’m sure I’ll read the next book, primarily because I’m very interested in finding out more of the backstory on the war and the destruction of much of the United States. There was very little of that in Article 5 and I think just a little bit more context would have helped the book.
