This morning at around 3:15 AM, I finished The One by Kiera Cass. I know that I’ve only been posting reviews on Kiera Cass books lately, but there are only two more books left. Don’t worry.
In this review, seeing as it’s the third book, I will briefly go over it without any spoilers, and then I’ll insert a ‘read more’ tag for those of you who have already read the book.
The One is perfect if you loved reading The Selection and The Elite. In this book, we see America struggle to sort out her feelings for both Aspen and Maxon as her place in Maxon’s eyes continues to be threatened by the king. The Elite are still down to four, and the girls are starting to bond like sisters. Even with Celeste.
America can see her possible future bright and clear, and in this book, she’s fighting hard for it to happen.
I know that little section there was brief, but this book really speaks for itself. Below is a tag that hides the few spoilers I’m going to spout about this book. If you have read the book, feel free to click on it and read my thoughts.
For those of you leaving now, please read this book. Then you can come back to discuss with me.
I hope to see you later,
Okay, guys, so I realized that ‘Read More’ tags are NOT supposed to be visible in actual posts, so I thought I’d add a bunch of spaces and this little message, so that those of you who have never read the book won’t be spoiled. Sorry about that.
*****SPOILERS BELOW!!! MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW!!!******
Even though I already read this book in 2014, the emotions were still running high when America’s father died, or when America found out that Kriss was a Northern rebel. I do recommend rereading these books, because the fact that Kriss and Shalom (America’s father) were rebels makes a lot of things way clearer. There’s the fact that the Northern rebels left with a bunch of books in The Elite, and when August and Georgia said that they had another favorite among the Elite, who was Kriss.
When Maxon acted like that towards America when he was about to announce his engagement to Kriss really reminded me of King Clarkson. That whole “You’d better smile or you’ll regret it” stuff sounded like something his father would say.
I do understand why he was so angry with her, though. With Marlee, he didn’t feel as strongly towards her. He had proposed to America seconds before he caught her with her hands on Aspen’s chest.
I loved how he proposed to America, with the picture of the house, as well as how she told him she loved him, by saying that she loved him for the scars on his back. That the scars on his back represented her, in a way.
I’m afraid that’s all I can provide tonight. I don’t know why, but that was probably one of the hardest reviews for me to write. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars, feel free to tell me your thoughts on the book in the comments below.
Goodnight (or morning),
