it is a pretty good book. it started off slow but got better the way through. it kinda is dystopian and zombie like. since the drifters in it remind me kinda of zombies but a different kind.

Fast paced, with short chapters, great for reluctant readers. Once you get past the issue of the planet getting rid of the trees (which led to their situation), I think it's a pretty realistic approach to what people will do to keep power. It also does a good job portraying that those fighting the corruption may not be better in that they can be extremists too. The main characters struggle to come to terms with these issues in a realistic way. I will definitely try the follow up "Resist".

I came across this book when looking for material along similar lines as the Hunger Games. The author's idea is fantastic and very unique, but her storyline leaves something to be desired. There are a lot of holes in the plot and the ending left me with more questions then answers. I had high expectations when I started reading, but it was a pretty steep slope downhill. Wouldn't recommend.

Meh, usually I like dystopian themed books but this one was really lacking something. The characters were likeable, however the plot left a lot to be desired. I just thought things could have been explained better and the POVs could have been longer instead of jumping back and forth so quickly.

I think Breathe was a great book. Which honestly I didn't find surprising at all, I mean look at the cover its so darn gorgeous!! I loved the characters it was kind of like a love triangle between Bea, Quinn and Alina. Though I did kind of find it strange that Quinn would call Alina the girl of his dreams just after meeting her once, I loved Bea's devotion and love for Quinn,she was willing to stay quiet and not profess her love since it meant she could be near him. This book was full of twists and turns and I could not predict what would happen after each book. I'm certainly looking forward to reading the next book of this series!!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a great sci-fi book that makes you appreciate life as it is now. Some aspects of the storyline were predictable, but overall it was an engaging read
