Unspoken  - Sarah Rees Brennan

This is the first book I ever read for a book club and I think that was the reason for my initial excitement. After discussing it, I've decided to lowered the ranking from 3.5 to 3.

I was engaged in the story throughout the whole book, which is why I practically finished it in one sitting, but, as we dicussed in the book club, there were still certain issues with it.

The characters were more like caricatures, especially Angela, and I didn't see any development in them whatsover. Many of Kami's reactions and her treatment to the side characters, Holly and Ash, left a bad taste in my mouth. I appriciate that she was confronted about it by other characters at least.

I did like the humour and I haven't read anything like it as regards the supernatural aspect so I quite enjoy that too.

The ending was a bit flat for me and Jared's reaction to the final outcome made me really mad. All in all, I enjoy it but had a few issues with it. I might pick up the second book later, just to see what happens next.
