    1. Dark and disturbing doesn't quite cover it. I loved the beginning, the middle needed to be a bit tighter, and the ending required an imagination stretch but overall I really, really liked this novel. Zed, the main character, is a tough and fierce young girl I won't forget soon and her fellow "Tower" dwellers range from pathetic to terrifyingly psychotic. Zed was a strange mix of haunting, bizarre, and callously funny. Wow


    2. I wanted to like--no, love--this book. The subject matter--a 12-year-old surviving in a not-so-far-fretched dystopian--is exciting and potentially unnerving; much of the writing is tersely evocative and dryly humorous. But there's something self-indulgent about many of the writer's choices, from plotting to description to character development.Take the title character, Zed. Tough, orphaned, living by her wits, Zed has numerous predecessors in literature (Pippi Longstocking, Dido Twite, and Deeni [...]


    3. To be completely honest, I think I picked this book solely on its title, but I've picked books for weirder reasons and never been disappointed.The story covers a 12 year old girl named Zed with no real past or future, just the present, and she's more than okay with that. After all, where she lives, there's no point in planning for the future -- not when there's child killers about, gangs, rapists, druggies and other assorted folk. She makes a habit of being her own person, not loyal to anyone, b [...]


    4. This is a dark, dark book in a very surreal way. It manages to simultaneously mess with your head and make you laugh. A dystopian Christ story? It's not for the faint of heart but it will stay with you. Did I mention it's dark?
