I was wondering what all the hubbub was about surrounding this book when I picked it up, and it turns out that it was totally worth all the noise people are making about it. Not to mention, it is deliciously controversial. I can imagine certain groups of readers are having hissy fits and becoming very angry while reading this book because it challenges some core beliefs about religion, autonomy, and womanhood. It also tackles topics like race, class, and LGBT issues rather smartly and without being condescending, which is also a plus in our current reading environment where people think The Help is a legitimate novel about fighting racism and not just another feel-good 'selfless white girl fights for the helpless black folk' fairy tale.

Having been recently burnt out on YA dystopian novels, it's nice to see an adult novel tackle the dystopian genre and do it well, with excellent world-building and storytelling skills to boot. It took me a chapter or two to properly get into the story, but the first-person narrative style that put me off initially ended up becoming a major factor in my enjoyment of the story. Some of the plot lines seem rushed, and I would have loved to spend more time in the Chrome shelter just because it was an absolutely fascinating place to visit, but overall it is an effective and chilling read.

So glad I checked this out on a whim at the library; I hope to read Hillary Jordan's debut novel before the year is out. ( )

Dystopian Thriller that I didn't think I would enjoy at first, but once I got into it, I could't put it down.

In Jordan's tale, Abortion has been outlawed in America ( or most states) and the crime is punishable by being "Chromed" to have one skin turn a different color. People are Chromed based on their crime ( Blue/Purple, Red and Yellow) in a future scarlet letter idea.

Hannah is now red after getting an abortion and refusing to name the father or the doctor. The story follows her life as she adjusts to a new life in what is my opinion a pretty scary world. ( )

This dystopian twist on "The Scarlet Letter" provided plenty of social commentary on religion, technology, reproductive rights, and the role of women. ( )

I really enjoyed most of this modern take on The Scarlet Letter, with echoes of The Handmaid's Tale. The protagonist has been punished for having an abortion: she's been dyed red so all can see she's a murderess. Jordan slowly reveals with whom the baby was conceived, and he is of course the most taboo lover imaginable in this hyper-fundamentalist society. The adventure is thrilling, but ends too soon, in the sense that I wish Jordan had given her heroine another 50-100 pages to grow and learn, instead of improbably having her cram a lifetime of life-changing experiences into a few brief days. Nonetheless, this is a worthwhile take on the evolution of a girl's stance on abortion and women's rights. ( )

This book was well-written and readable, but not the least bit original. It pulls heavily from the Scarlett Letter and A Handmaid's Tale. There were a lot of eye roll inducing moments for me. I did fear for Hannah and was enraged at her treatment at times. Overall disappointing for a pretty good premise. ( )

These early scenes, in which Hannah wakes up in the Chrome ward where she’s been sentenced to remain for 30 days, are promisingly inventive. ... Lacking the satiric sting of “1984″ and “A Clockwork Orange,” the pathos of “Super Sad True Love Story” and “The Book of Dave,” or the kind of newfangled vocabulary each of these works used to describe their worlds, Jordan’s dystopia turns out to depict a much smaller future than its bold opening chapters, with their clever homage to Hawthorne, had so valiantly attempted to guarantee.
