This was my journey reading Jellicoe Road...
A few chapters in- Did I pick a dystopian novel by accident?
A few more chapters in- What is up with the territories and cadets and townies?
Further in- Finally I understand. I think...
Shortly after that I felt like I was punched in the gut and left crying in a corner.
I stayed up till 3am finishing the book. The writing was great. The first part was really confusing me but once I got a little before halfway in everything clicked and I am so happy I stuck with this book. It was beautiful and scary and heartbreaking.
