Review: Starters by Lissa Price

Starters by Lissa Price is set in a dystopian world where the world is split into Starters (younger people – teens) and Enders (older old people). Enders can inhabit the bodies of Starters, basically so they can have fun again. Cassie finds her body taken over by someone with murderous intent. Cue mysteries.

I’ve read quite a few other books in between so I can’t remember exactly, but what I took away from this book was that Cassie wasn’t a very interesting, or smart, protagonist, and the love interest was plain boring. Some of the plot felt amateurish, and I can’t quite believe no one has figured out people are taking over other people’s bodies in however many years it has been going on. There were twists, but they were all basically the same thing and the last twist made some of the previous events seem plain creepy.

So yeah, I didn’t particularly enjoy the book although it certainly wasn’t dreadful, and won’t be reading the sequel Enders.
