I was really looking forward to reading this novel when I was given a copy by the publisher. Dystopian literature is quickly becoming my favorite genre.
In Pure, an elite group of the population was tucked away safely in a dome while the others were left to suffer the effects of detonations that caused deformities, fusions, and other oddities. Pressia, our heroine, helps a Pure find his mother.
The world in which Pure takes place is poorly described, and I often had difficulty imagining scenes. I was unable to connect to the characters and the story, and I often felt ambivalent about the outcome. The storyline lacked cohesiveness and some aspects felt disconnected.
It is apparent that Baggott is creative, but Pure was unsuccessful for me.
