Cia Vale was happy to be chosen for The Testing so that she can go to the University. No one knows much about The Testing. Even Cia’s father, a graduate, didn’t remember much about the test. But once Cia was chosen for the test, he told her about his nightmares and warned Cia to be really careful.
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau reminds me of the Hunger Games, and I’m sure a lot of readers had compared the two books. I love this book. Once I read it, I just couldn’t stop until I find out what was going to happen next. I think that the testing parts were very exciting. I enjoyed reading about what the government had prepared for the test.
Cia, the main character was great. She’s humble and intelligent. Although did sound a little too perfect. It was like she had a six sense to get everything right. I wished that there were more interaction between Cia and the other characters, because I would love to know them as well.
But still, The Testing was written brilliantly. I just can’t wait to see what will happen next to Cia and the others in the next book!
