Natalie Berger's first foray into the published world is absolutely one of the best dystopian novels I've read in a long time. She captures life - and death - in "The Towers" in stunning detail. I felt like I was right there with Spade, the protagonist, in her quest. Life seems perfect...but a little too perfect, and when Spade starts to question it, her life simultaneously falls apart and begins.
It starts out slightly confusing at first. The inhabitants of The Towers have a language all their own, but I found it easy to pick up. Soon, it felt like I was on a roller coaster of emotion: love, hate, friendship, fear, jealousy...you name it! My only complaint was that I wanted MORE once I'd finished.
If this was her first book, I see big things happening for her.
