For Darkness Shows the Stars

For Darkness Shows the Stars - Diana Peterfreund This book is really unique. I totally loved the idea of the plot. It's really engaging and so exciting to read!What I loved most about this book is the great plot. The reader is introduced to a whole new world after one that was ravished from beliefs. The people now have segregated into what they believe. Those who believe that there should be no experiments done on animals, plants, humans are Luddite. There are those who believe you should experiment to enhance your life are Posts. And honestly, while reading this book I can't say where I stand. I know the technology is good cause it does help your life. On the other hand, technology can become controling and dangerous. The story line started off slow but quickly worked up to an amazing ending.The love interest in this book is well done. Here we have a Luddite and a Post fighting on two different sides on what they believe yet they yearn for each other like peanut butter and jelly. The straining of the relationship left my heart in pieces. Ms. Peterfreund did an amazing job of showcasing the strain, their beliefs as well as their growing love for each other despite what was done in their past or happening now in the present. I'll tell you right now that it will break your heart. Yet at the end, you heart will fall together again with lots of joy!The characters of this book are written extremely well. I loved how the characters are well adapted to their time. You can tell that they are teenagers yet you feel the pressure of what they have to do. The changes that the characters go through, molded them into people that their society needs. These characters will make you feel as if you are in the story.For Darkness Shows The Stars is a talented story of a young love coming to light. The culture, the beliefs, the struggle to stand on your on only to be brought down by others, leaves the reader breathless. Then a burning love saves them all. For Darkness Show The Stars is amazing!
