Legend - Marie Lu
I was aware of the romance before I started it, so it didn't surprise me. It wasn't a terrible romance, but it was predictable.
I liked Day, he was interesting and honestly was the one that kept me reading.
June was kind of "meh", she wasn't a bad character or anything, I just didn't relate to her as well as I did with Day. I did feel as though June's lack of emotion at the death of her brother, was a mistake on the author's part.
In my opinion June should have been WAY more vengeful toward Day, even before she realized who he was! She has great potential though, so I hope to see Lu build on that.
But Day on the other hand seemed very real, his love for his family and willingness to sacrifice himself for their safety was very admirable.
This is a little off subject, but has anyone else ever really liked the "wrong" character? Who of the charaters I really liked in this book either died or turned out to be evil! For real? Anyone else ever had problems like this? It wouldn't be the first time if it was just me! :-P
Aaanyway... I enjoyed the plot and setting, though sometimes it seemed typical.
In all honesty, I've read better. But it's not like it was a terrible book or anything, it just didn't grab me like I'd hoped.
I do plan on reading the second book, but I am hoping that it'll be better.
It was an okay book, not awesome. not awful.
