Read this book for bookclub, but it had been on my to-read list for a while anyway. When I started reading the first chapter, the book seemed really familiar to me, like it's seen a film or read a book with the same idea. I still have that feeling now I've finished it, but no idea what I could have seen or read that had the same gift in the lead character.
Jem is a likeable character, perhaps more so than Spider, but I did start to warm to him towards the end of the book.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down, I did find a couple of things to be quite predictable. I liked the way it was written, and the supporting characters were all great. I'm planning to read the second book in this series next, as I really want to find out what happens in 2027
