Lectus' review, the blurb (plus her comment on the MC) was what convinced me to request this book.
Method 15/33 is about a 16 year old pregnant girl who happens to be kidnapped. Unlike most 16 year olds, however, she's incredibly smart and has the ability to turn off her emotions.
So obviously, she devises a plan to escape her captors and get revenge on them.
I seriously love all the pieces with Lisa (the 16 year old genius) in them. I just wanted to find out how she was going to take her revenge, and if she would succeed (or if her condition was gonna cause her to slip up). So that definitely made this a page turner for me.
However, I do agree with Lectus that the FBI parts aren't as interesting. I didn't think they were very slow, but they weren't what I wanted to read. I wasn't interested in solving this crime (I've already met the criminals), I wanted to read about Lisa and her plans! But I do admit, having their perspective from the start did pay off in the end, since I was used to the dual-narrative, and I think the ending used that pretty well.
The ending was satisfying, by the way. I won't give away any spoilers, but you probably won't be throwing the book against the wall in frustration. It is a little sad though, even though it's not the perfect ending.
If you're looking for a dark, slightly twisted book with a different type of heroine, you should definitely give Method 15/33 a go. You won't be disappointed.
