Legend by Marie Lu*****

This book is an easy read for non-readers. It was very easy to understand, and it was entertaining book. Also book describe characters’ emotions and situation really well. And I like the part that there was two main character, June and Day, and the point of view was switching between June and Day every chapter. So I could understand both characters’ emotion and how different person they are.

It was entertaining that June and Day is such a different person, but similar inside. Also when June and Day misunderstood each other, and I thought that was ironic because I read both part of June and Day’s situation and mind. It was really entertaining book and I can understand why people recommend me this book. But to me, personally, the book was too long. I don’t usually read books and I never finish books. I always stop reading middle of the book, but “Legend” was really interesting book so I was not surprised when I finished this book.

Page was little bit over 300 pages, and it took me a week to finish first 200 pages. But I was really in to the story at last 100 pages, and I finished that part in a day. The story is really similar with “Hunger Games” series, but the background is United States, and they have the same states’ name as real US does, so to me, it was more entertaining and I could imagine more easily.

The thing that I dislike was characters’ age. Both character is 16 years old and that bothered me a lot during reading. Because there is lots of fighting scenes and I can’t really imagine that 16 year old boy was fighting with older men, and he beat them up. In the story, both main character is really kind and fight for justice, and I was wondering that they were too young to fight against government, and it was pretty unrealistic. That is the only thing I didn’t like in this book, and rest of the thing was really good.
