The last book I read because a movie was coming out was Ready Player One and I really wasn’t into it.
Unfortunately, the same has happened with The Darkest Minds.
The premise is interesting, but I just found the plot really boring. Nothing much happened.
Zu was my favourite character and I especially loved the scene in Walmart with her and Ruby trying on clothes.
And I enjoyed the bits where Ruby realises she’s 16 now and tries to shave her legs for the first time and stuff.
But this book just didn’t do it for me. Besides Zu, I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters.
Perhaps the sequels are better but I’m not sure I want to try them.
