For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
Total Reading Time: 4 hours
Review: Part Jane Austen and part H.G. Wells, this post-apocalyptic YA romance was actually rather good. It did meander a bit in the middle but I devoured it fairly quickly. Based on one of my favorite Jane Austen novels, Persuasion, I enjoyed how the little Austen-ian nods mixed with the science fiction elements. All in all a good story exploring class, arrogance and how too much of anything can be dangerous.
