I love this book, it’s really good and it totally captivated me, but I didn’t get satisfied with the ending (although most of the time I never am satisfied with endings!). It’s what you would expect to be an amazing story full of mystery. This book had gotten the Sony Young Novelist Of The Year and was chosen by Malorie Blackman.
Corin lives in the future where every child is born with a carpinomen – the name of your anima-vinculum (your soul mate in Latin) was written on your wrist forever and it molds you – it is everything for you. People spend years and years searching for their love but sometimes you can never find them, sometimes you fall in love with someone else – this is Corin’s story…
“People are unpredictable and predictable at the same time: it seems that whenever you want someone to surprise you they remain themselves, and those who were actually OK screw themselves over some way or another. People make stupid decisions on a regular basis but, worse, have stupid reasons for those decisions – because people are broken then forced together again in ways that they were probably never intended to be.”
It is a book for fans of rebellious female protagonists and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did.
