I reviewed The Young World by Chris Weitz over on Booked to Perfection the other day! Check it out!
”Welcome to New York, a city ruled by teens. After a mysterious Sickness wipes out the rest of the population, the young survivors assemble into tightly run tribes. Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, the girl he’s secretly in love with, have carved out a precarious existence among the chaos. But when another tribe member discovers a clue that may hold the cure to the Sickness, five teens set out on a life-altering road trip to save humankind. The tribe exchanges gunfire with enemy gangs, escapes cults and militias, braves the wilds of the subway and Central Park …and discovers truths they could never have imagined.”
I am a massive fan of YA Dystopian novels, (aren’t we all?!), so of course I was intrigued and excited by the chance to read ‘The Young World by Oscar-nominated writer and director Chris Weitz.
Quick read of the blurb and you’re thinking, “ugh here we go, same old same old”, but regardless I remained hopeful that this book would offer something new to the world of YA Dystopia. Unfortunately… It didn’t.
Predictable, clichéd and overdone were the first words that came to mind.
