Overall The Island is an exciting, fast-paced thriller with more than a touch of Stanford prison experiment. It toys with your emotions and hangs them out to dry.
I started out wanting to assemble a lighthearted, quirky group for a chill dinner party, then things...escalated, and in the end what I've created is more Red Wedding than Sweet Sixteen. You have been warned.
I love the story Singer has created, but for the sake of just about everyone, I hope it isn't prescient.
Eve of Man's first half is unbearably boring, and the second half reads like one of those fantasies where terrorists invade your workplace/school and you singlehandedly take them all out. If you want a book that capitalises well on a Handmaid's Tale kind of setting, go for Grace and Fury instead.
