Review of Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe - Neal Shusterman

This book had so much potential.  I thought the premise was intriguing, and I actually thought the two main characters, and side characters, were engaging.  However, the story took forever to really get going, and the entire book from start to finish was very negative in nature.  I could live with that, but the premise of the world is that everyone is immortal and no one wants for anything, so it was hard to read a book where literally none of the characters seem to enjoy anything.  I also was disappointed in the ending because it felt far too simple after the long buildup.  I thought I would enjoy this more.
