I would recommend it as a read, since the way it describes the onset of the dystopian society. It was slow and this were happening to other people. That's how dictators stay in power. I rated it 3 because I think the story could have been more. I guess as a fantasy fan, I am quite invested in back stories. How this society came to be? Who were the major players? Why such a dire change? But I also like how this book is structured. It's exactly how a person with no story telling capacity, will narrate their story. Not strictly chronological, or sometimes going on a tangent. I would maybe not read it again, but m glad I read it once.
