Entering a new world...

The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken

This book was good. No, this book was really good. No, WAIT , this sh*t was awesome!!!

This book is dark and disturbing and the more you read, the more sense of realism jumps from the pages making it a believable chilling dystopia.

This is something Ruby had to learn the hard way. Abandoned by parents, forgotten by friends, abused by officers.

Bit by bit she was broken down, left alone in a helpless world where if you don't push, you'll be pushed harder, if you don't stand, you'll crumble.

Then one lucky day, she gets the chance at an escape.
And this is where the fun begins *wink*

I was a bit hesitant to read it, at first, because most of the reviews I saw were all negative and I had just finished reading this amazing book Stolen Songbird so I was still on a high and didn't wanna ruin it but I've learned the hard way that most of the time I go against the current. You cant begin to imagine the books I've read because of the RAVING reviews and later found myself wanting to hang everyone who dared recommend it. So I gave this baby a chance and I do NOT regret it!

The Darkest Minds tend to hide behind the most unlikely faces.
The entire book I was completely hesitant to trust anyone. The author had a way of making you scared to get attached to people because you were never sure who at the end of the day would be the one to pull the rug from under your feet.

It had a whole lot of plot twists that I was definitely NOTexpecting


The characters
I loved them all, even when while I hated some( lol, make any sense?). They are 3 dimensional, they're real. They all have a back stories you get to learn and piece by piece you get through the layers of who they are. Their actions are understandable and fluid, not just randoms events pieced together by the author. These are characters that grow throughout the book. Who you start reading about in the beginning is not the same person who will stand at the end of it.

Oh and That ENDING ...

“Don’t be scared. Don’t let them see.”
