A Million Suns
This book is just as good, if not better, than the first in the series. I was skeptical about the author coming up with a logical story line after the first book, but I really liked the direction she took this one. The characters and their relationships were deepened and further developed, and there was enough action to keep the story moving.
A few disappointments, though…
– the eventual antagonist had a very cliche TV-villain-like monologue that sounded really contrived
– another antagonist was pretty much just “disposed of” rather unceremoniously, and although we can assume, it was never really explained what happened to this character
– Amy is still selfish, immature, and kind of unlikable. I thought it would get better after the first book as she learned from her experiences and got used to her new life, but I’m still having trouble liking her
