Review: Possession - Elana Johnson

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Hardcover: 416 pages
  • Publisher: Simon Pulse (June 7, 2011)

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even thinkabout kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn. This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

My Thoughts...
Oh boy...Oh boy...Oh boy... I fell in love with the very simple yet beautiful cover, and was desperate to read it. I didn't hesitate to start it when I got it from S&S Galley Grab.  There were a few points where I was a little confused, but overall this book was great.  Life is anything but easy or normal for Vi, she is constantly faced with tough choices, while not equipped with enough information to always make her decision.  One of the things I loved about Vi was she was smart but tended to make her decisions from her heart. I was a little disappointed at the insta click between Vi and Jag, at the same time I kinda get it strange things happen when people are extremely stressed or scared.  I really don't think I can discuss any of the plot without giving something away so all I will say is this book is intense and there are so many twist and turns before the end.  I really hope that there is more to this story I look forward to more in this series and this author! This one gets 4 stars from me!

  1. Ooh, the cover of this is gorgeous. I love the blue against the start white background. And the over all premise of the story, sounds very intriguing as well. Great review, thanks for sharing! :)
