Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Can I give a book six stars?

I want to.

Goodreads suggested this to me as a potential book to read.

This was fantastic! I am in awe of how well written and thought out this was. I love the hero, Darrow, and how flawed he was. He seemed a real person with his mistakes and his anger. He wasn’t perfect, a great strategist, a brilliant intellect, or made mistakes that ended up being the correct choices. He was flawed in every wonderful, horrible sense of the word.

Thank you Pierce Brown for creating this book. Thank you Goodreads for promoting it and suggesting it. I loved every bloodydamn page. I dreamt the words. I hated and loved turning every page. I did not want to put it down to attend my children, make dinner or sleep. I was barely into this book before I wanted everyone I knew to read it. It’s touted as similar to The Hunger Games or Ender’s Game, but I think it far surpasses.

I wait for more from this amazing and talented author. I hope he is prolific with his ideas and writing. I send many, many Muses his way.

If you’re looking for a terrific book to read, I HIGHLY recommend this one. Try it out, let me know what you think!
