I love Anderson's style of writing. The characters in all of her books (including Catalyst) have a very personal connection with me. They really come alive and I can imagine being them or being friends with them.
The whole series of the Pendragon books is extraordinary. It's a classic "a regular boy figures out he has to save the world" book with a twist. Each of the stories is so unique and widening.
This book is futuristic and it really struck me as a story that could actually occur later on in history. The thought of "Whoa, that could happen!" flew in my mind. This is about a girl fighting for freedom.
Tom is a very delicate character and the book is very gripping in making the reader feel how Tom felt when he left. The intensity and awareness of Tom's personality really reminds me of my own feelings.
I am in love with every single one of Rhodes books, characters and beautifully written, exciting stories. She is so talented at creating a unique and thrilling book. They are so strange but at the same time real.
