America was so frustrating, indecisive, and I hated her in this book which makes it a 3 star, but the rest of the book was pretty great. The first book is much better than this one, but I can't wait to read the next one. I loved the Halloween party idea. ( )

I really hope the next book goes somewhere. The more this drags on, the less I like almost every major character. And yet... I still have to know what happens? Oof. ( )

Der zweite Teil der Selection-Reihe schließt nahtlos an den Vorgänger an und ich fand es vergnüglich, mich erneut mit den bekannten Figuren zu beschäftigen.

America, die ich weiterhin sehr mag, hat sich gegen viele Mädchen behaupten können. Mittlerweile gibt es nur noch 6 Mädchen, die um die Gunst von Prinz Maxon (oder zumindest um den Thron) kämpfen. Doch auch diesmal herrscht nicht nur eitel Sonnenschein, im Gegensatz zum ersten Teil wird es sogar noch ein wenig dramatischer.
Der Leser erfährt mehr über die Geschichte des Landes und auch Figuren, die vorher in Randnotizen erwähnt wurden, werden weiter beleuchtet (wie die Vorfahren/Verwandten des Prinzen).

Fazit: Die Seiten sind nur so dahin geflogen und bis zur letzten Seite habe ich das Buch genossen und mich sehr gut unterhalten gefühlt. Kiera Cass hat einen würdigen Nachfolger geliefert! ( )

this was an amazing second book in the selection series!! the love triangle between aspen, america, and maxon is super intense, but its really enjoyable. ( )

3.5 stars.

It really is just a girly version of any other dystopian YA that you're likely to have already read, heard about, seen the movie, or decided you hated dystopian that wasn't written at the level of Atwood.

But sometimes it's nice to just get lost in a book that's a quick read. Not everything has to be so educational. ( )

The Angeles air was quiet, and for a while I laid still, listening to the sound of Maxon breathing.
