The One Review

4.5 stars overall
2.5 for the first half
5ish for the second half

The One by Kiera Cass
I don't like her writing style. A few times she's misused words or phrases them poorly. The first half of the book had me struggling to continue. But suddenly after the half way mark, I couldn't let go. In total, I cried 3 times for this book. For the last 30 pages, it took me 2 hours to read... Mainly because of crying so hard. 

I didn't like in the series how absolutely nothing changed for three books. The same stuff trends:

- problematic politics- Mer is gutsy for her fellow poor caste members- she loves her family- her and Max are super happy together- Aspen appears- devious other Elitists do something- Mer makes it worse for herself- this usually is a public announcement that (is awesome and far more interesting than a Katniss Everdeen propaganda speech) is against the King's wishes- the King gets angry- Max and her are on the rocks- she decides she will give up and is not worthy…
