I truly enjoyed this book...and yet, it failed to rock my world because (see explanation in review).

This book has a lot going for it. I like how Young Adult dystopia books are finding pockets without super violent, guns roaring, blood and guts flying. Those violent swings had made me leave great authors like Marie Lu and Ally Condie behind. Under the Never Sky is dystopia - but despite the dire synopsis about cannibals, it's gun free and that gives it a prehistoric feel despite the advanced technology of the Dwellers. It's a great contrast for us as readers to go from one environment to the other, and watch the struggle of Aria to adapt.
