Tuesday reads – Die Enklave / Enclave

tuesday reads

I know, I know. It is definitely not tuesday. It’s wednesday. But let’s pretend it is tuesday because somehow I totally forgot to post my latest book recommendation. Shame on me!

Anyways… the book I am representing today is

Die Enklave / Enclave by Ann Aguirre

Another dystopian read? Yeah, blame me! I LOVE dystopian stories. You know what dystopian means, right? If you don’t, read this article  on Wikipedia to find out.


The story:

„New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20’s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters–or Freaks–who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight–guided by Fade’s long-ago memories–in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs.
Ann Aguirre’s thrilling young adult novel is the story of two young people in an apocalyptic world–facing dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known.“

Is it worth reading?

First I was not very much into the story. I bought the book for my kindle because I needed something to read. And then I found myself sleeping late because I was really getting involved. I like the idea of an down- and topside world. I love all the fighting and the little peeks of romance during the journey of the two heroes.

If you like dystopian books like Hunger Games or Divergent – this seriously is your next read!

Ein Gedanke zu “Tuesday reads – Die Enklave / Enclave

  1. Oh … das Buch ist auch auf meiner ToRead Liste und so sehr ich mich einerseits darauf freue um so mehr streube ich mich davor, denn es ist ja der Auftakt zu einer Serie und ich warte schon bei drei anderen, das sie endlich weitergehen 😉

    Auf meinem Nachtisch liegt zur Zeit „Grabkammer“ von Tess Gerritsen.
