The story was really good as I said at the beginning of this review. However, what I don't understand is how the people not getting the mark are acting. Yes, I understand that to the main society they are thought to be "losers" and the scum of the Earth. That is the whole story. But really there is really only one or two parts that even allude to the mark having anything to do with religion and God. I did like that the "warehouse" that Peck was staying in was so obviously a church, and that the kids didn't really know what it was due to how the world had changed while they grew up.
But this is obviously going to be a part of a series, so I'm eager to read on and see when we get to the point that we pull these things into the story. I guess I just assumed that a book from this publisher would be more religious, but maybe that is the point of not putting it so in your face, so that more kids will read it. I do know I will recommend it to the kids who liked the Left Behind series for kids!
