I rated it this because it is a very original idea and very interesting and the book kept me on my toes the entire time thinking about what was going to happen next and it kept me entertained the entire time i was reading it, i was never bored.
Red Rising is about a man named Darrow who has been tricked by the gold superiors, who has killed his wife and hid the truth from his people for many generations, using them only to work. Darrow allies himself with a group of rebels who turn him into a gold, his mission is to rise through the ranks of the golds and destroy their society from the inside out.
This book would interest anyone who picks it up. Especially if they like action and an original story. I feel others should read this book because it will keep them interested.
