We had a small group this month since we met right after the Memorial Day holiday, so I decided to gather a few sentences from everyone as a summary of what they thought.
Birthmarked is one of my all-time favorite series. I love the character development and teh world where water is a valiable commodity and used to create a sort of underclass. I was immediately drawn in my the whole worl of teh midwives and some of the heartbreakingthings that they had to do. Gaia is niave, but her bravery shines through!
Overall-interesting world but a flat and boring main character. The 'bad' guys didn't seem that evil but there is a lot of potential for the next two books.
I read through Birthmarked very quickly. It was fast paced and kept my interest. I was a little frustrated with Gaia's parents for keeping her in the dark (for no apparent reason). As a mother, this was a hard read. I couldn't imagine having to choose one of my twins. I wished the author had added more decoding into the story line. I really enjoyed that part of the book!
