It is such a shame that this didn't come out during the dystopia heyday as this is fantastic. There is no doubt that it will be touted as Hunger Games meets 1984 but I think this does it a disservice as the idea is very unique and the execution is brilliant. I thought Silver's character was realistic and engaging and her rationale for things made more sense than a lot of teen or YA protagonists. I don't want to spoil anything by adding details about what actually occurs within Olympus and why those 'lucky' ones are chosen by the Elite to come to Olympus but I was guessing along with the main character and it was such nice feeling to not know exactly what was going on. It was also great for there not to be a love story. I know this is only book 1 and the story ends on a cliff-hanger but I much prefer the character to be driven by circumstances than romance. If you would like to re-immerse yourself into the YA dystopia without worrying about all of the tropes and cliches then this is definitely one you want to read. Highly recommend.
