I just started reading it, and it seems very fascinating. Anyone else? (no open spoilers please )

It is fascinating. If you checked it out because of recommendation from Meyer, then don't expect for it to be anything like her books. But it IS really good, an is well written! I usually don't read futuristic fantasy, and the themes are a bit heavy (especially for someone who was born in the USSR), but it is a great mix of political oppression, fantasy, adventure and relationships.
It's something between 1984 and The Giver (well, so far anyway heh). It is hard to put down, really draws you in. It is much easier to read than 1984, yet a lot more thought out than The Giver.
P.S. If I taught High School, I would read this with my kids along with 1984.
