As for the plot, the pacing was about the same as the first one. Not much disease, either, except for the biggie, the Human Progressive Sterility Virus.

Having had a good time and mcdafferty good push to my mind seemed to be enough. He was just so syrupy sweet and annoying. He paid for everyone’s sins and now asks us if we will accept the payment.

I decided to read Thumped because I like the idea of dystopian texts however, most dystopian books are too gruesome and sad for me to enjoy them. Whereas Bumped gave us strong social commentary in the form of satire without commentary, Thumped is a lot less subtle.


You know, how she’s supposed to be smart, but all the while you’re thinking: Melody and Harmony are deeply flawed, immature, and so, so real. Not too slow, and just interesting enough to keep you hanging on.

And while it was the story and the ideas that kept me intrigued in mccaffertj first book, it was the characters — Melody and Harmony — that I was captivated by in Thumped. Jul 10, Good Golly Miss Holly rated it really liked it. It’s not that this was a bad book, it just wasn’t for me.
