Summary from Goodreads:
Knowledge is a Dangerous CommodityHOME - the last bastion of civilization in a corrupt and fallen world. Outside dwell the reanimated dead, cannibals, and scavengers; remnants of a once great race. Inside, the commune is ruled with an iron fist by Deacon, and administered without mercy by the Elders.Everyone knows their place in HOME. Everyone is safe in HOME…as long as you follow the rules.Handmaiden Suzannah Commons is content with training to be a wife and mother, the only occupation open to women in HOME. But her world is turned upside-down when she tastes the forbidden knowledge contained in outlawed books.Suzannah discovers a new way of life is possible, but that knowledge comes at a high price. It could cost her life. Or the life of the boy she loves.
I thought the book was okay. It kept my interest but I wasn't dying to find out how it all ended. The main character of Suzannah I really felt bad about the life she had, but at times I wish she wasn't so weak-minded. I really loved Silas, he was my favorite character in the book. He was the one I felt really bad for, and if you read or are planning on reading the book you'll find out why. Female of course get the raw deal in these types of books. The book ended pretty interesting but kind of wierd for me, I will say Suzanne goes through a lot towards the end of the book, but Silas's mom, really gets put through the wringer. And I will warn you that there is a lot of dark subject matters in this book, such as rape, and beatings, etc. But like I mentioned above what the subject that this book deals with that is expected. I don't think I would read this book again but I wouldn't discourage other readers from reading this book for themselves. And I want to say that I am still glad I was given an opportunity to read this book and take part in the tour for the book. I did voluntarily request to take part in this tour and the review is my honest opinion on how I felt about this book. Add to Goodreads
