“All Rights Reserved” is a dystopian novel, which is a genre I’ve had enough of after “Hunger Games” and the numerous dystopians that followed, but this book piqued my interest with its originality. In this society, once the age of 15, people must pay to speak. Freedom of speech is taken away.
This is a complex concept with many conflicts the author would have to resolve, but Katsoulis did a beautiful job in ensuring there were no plot holes and describing the society in a way that readers could understand. The main character was the typical rebellious heroine found in most dystopian novels, but Speth is a passionate character with a defiant nature that readers enjoy despite her stereotypical character traits.
This book was inspiring and made me thankful for having the rights I have.
