    One thought on “The Watch”

    1. ***********GIVEAWAY WIN***********How the hell did this series sneak past me? Seriously ALL FOUR BOOKS have been out for TWO YEARS and I have never heard of them?! How is that even possible?!THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!!!It grabbed me with the very first page. The writing is wonderfully descriptive, making it beyond easy to get sucked into the emotions and scenery. Everything was so warmly written that it was impossible not to feel what I was reading. The story revealed just enough to keep me readin [...]

    2. Dystopian societies can go really well or really bad. I was a fan of The Hunger Games, that’s past tense by the way, so I was rightfully cautious about pouring my heart into a book that would most likely end in a twisted love triangle and everyone else dead or just abandoned completely. Thankfully, that didn’t happen here. There are things about Red that draw you in. Dystopian world, first of all. Everyone and everything on lockdown, fast paced action scenes, excellent writing with delicate [...]

    3. As a stand-alone book, Red: The Watch is intriguing. Its real strength, though, is in the writer’s skill in setting up characters, situations, and themes to be developed throughout the series. The four books of the series could well be published as four parts of a single novel, a very good one. I recommend reading the entire series, then glancing back over this first book to see the significance of details that may have seemed insignificant the first time through.

    4. I used to be an English prof teaching lit and creative writing, and I appreciate both "high" and well-written popular fiction. This novel series really impressed me. It's an extremely gripping read from the first pages, and works for young adult on up, with enough meat to the plot and characters to keep readers of various ages satisfied. It's set in a near future after something strange and terrible has happened, but it avoids the grim nihilism of so many dystopian novels. There is real evil but [...]

    5. This book was entered and was a FINALIST in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards.

    6. Young Adult dystopia science fiction at its best: a fast-paced, highly readable adventure with a touch of class.Teenager Red has red hair and rebels against the authorities of the isolated, dystopic city of Optica, where everyone is under constant surveillance. Yep, it is Young Adult dystopia. You will rightly expect a love triangle. But I read this in one sitting, which means it’s either pretty darn good or I really didn’t want to start on my tax return. Maybe both.The writing suffers from [...]

    7. Blah, blah, blahDystopian society that's strictly controlled, hunger, evil governmentspecial snowflake heroine, love triangleUgh!OF COURSE she'd never choose the sweet caring guy who's taken care of her for years and is unwaveringly loyal!What a loser!I can't see how this is any different from other futuristic novels.

    8. After a strong start, the plot advanced very slowly with long descriptions of a not very original oppressive society. And it's disappointing that this is not a stand-alone novel. It ends suddenly with many questions unanswered. Not sure I would care to read the next novel just to find out the ending.

    9. I love a strong female lead character and this book has it. I was drawn in right away to the book and the adventure inside. I love all the characters and I will read the next book because I want to find out what happens next.

    10. I would rate this a 2.5. It's similar to the Hunger Games. For a young adult, this would be a good book, but there's not enough substance beyond that. It also ends right in the middle of the story, so while the book isn't long, apparently this book is just the first half of the story.

    11. Every element of life in the walled city of Optica is tightly controlled by the ever watchful Wardens. Citizens accused of breaking the rules suffer public humiliation or execution. Red (named for her hair color) is a rebellious teen. Skirting the rules, she tries to learn the true reason for Optica, why she’s considered “different,” and what the mysterious Guardians plan for the citizenry.The world building in this novel was extremely well done. Optica is dark and depressing—very Orwell [...]

    12. The Watch, by Amanda Witt, is set in a closed community under constant surveillance, where walls provide protection from the things that are rumoured to haunt the surrounding woods. Red, so-called for her flaming red hair, is the maverick in a society of martinets, the only child born during the time of the ashes, the only person on the island with that distinctive shade of hair, and she is both watched and shunned because of it. Red’s existence is precarious, and her penchant for breaking rul [...]

    13. 4.5 stars!! Immensely readable - reminds me favourably of Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth. Also Jessica Sorenson's dystopian series comes to mind. Quite a different storyline but similar pace and strength with characterisation and world building.

    14. I really like this book. Starts out seeming like just another dystopian, but ends up being much classier than that. Read the whole series and it won't let you down.
