“I love the fact Marie Lu gave us a government perspective in the book through her character, June. That's one of the problems with dystopian novels. They usually only have two or three characters at the most that are the main focus of the story and it mostly involves them falling in love and forgetting everything else important around them.
While in Legend, only Day and June narrate, they aren't so wrapped up in each other that they can't bother with anyone else.
I do think they fell for each other rather fast, but then I have always been one for slower romance, so other people might not agree with me.
I also think the last ten chapters were a little rushed and could have been fleshed out more, but they were okay. Much better than Mockingjay's last chapters that were almost chaotic and confusing.
I like that we had a brief meeting with the Elector, but I do wish it hadn't been so short. I would have loved to learn more about him and his elections through June.
The plot itself involving the plague and the colonies was very interesting, though I kind of figured everything out half way through the book.
I give this novel three stars. It was well worth the read and definitely worth reading the second book to find out what happens next.
