Better than I expected
I pretty much enjoyed Legend. The story and writing gripped me from the very beginning and I finished this book within two days, which I didn't expect. I liked that Day and June's chapter were written with different font and finally wasn't the MC (June) a dumb girl! I surprisingly liked every character here and it was refreshing... I pretty much enjoyed Legend. The story and writing gripped me from the very beginning and I finished this book within two days, which I didn't expect. I liked that Day and June's chapter were written with different font and finally wasn't the MC (June) a dumb girl! I surprisingly liked every character here and it was refreshing not to have rolling my eyes every few pages. BUT! - The story was really fast-paced and sometimes I wished that the author took more time and told us more about the world, what happend, more about Patriots, maybe some attacks from Patriots, get to know Tessa more,.. There were just the basic and the most important things you need to know for enjoying Legend. - Especially I would appreciate if Marie Lu didn't let Day and June fall in love so quickly; I didn't feel any chemistry and love between them. It was such a pity. Despite these flaws I enjoyed the book. I wasn't amazed but I wasn't disappointed either. If you liked Divergent series, I think you will like this book. I will definitely continue with this series.
