Anomaly book tour

Anomaly is terrific. It's like a Christian Delirium/Matched crossover.  While I didn't particularly like Matched or Delirium, you have to admit the plot line is fascinating.

I read this book a couple of months ago, so I had to flip through the pages to refresh my memory. I may be mistaken about a few things, just so you know.

The world was devastated by nuclear war. Few were spared. Ten scientists, AKA "The Ten," found a way to live underground, and a way to suppress the emotions that caused war and pain in the first place.

Meet Thalli. Thalli is an anomaly. Thalli can feel emotion. Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live.

Thalli's journey through this book was fantastic. It's fun, watching her discover and learn, and yet, there was always an underlying suspense. How can there be anything else with a beginning line such as, "Fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds. That's how long I have to live."

It was refreshing to read this book. It's the dystopian kind of book that I've come to love, and it's Christian. I relished the well-woven words and slight romance and Thalli's struggle to decide what is right and wrong.

Everything about this was incredible. I cannot wait for Luminary. Krista McGee is a fantastic writer, and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
