A book full of great ideas written out perfectly. The plot captured me just as much as the characters.

The House Of The Scorpion - One of my very favourite books; I have now read it five times. This was the book that got me into reading back in April 2010. I went on to read all of Nancy Farmer's books. By July 2013, I had read over 350 books and counting. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

This is a simply stunning book about the life of a clone. It is impossible to put down and paced perfectly.

Definitely one of my favourite dystopian stories. A Drug Lord. A Clone. A bunch of people that are like mindless zombies. Take down the bad guy. That sort of thing.
