Kiera Cass shows a world with eight castes depending on one's social and economic status. Ones are the royals and most desirable, with Eights being the lowest and poorest. Although the author makes controversial premonitions about the future of America and the world, this is still fiction. The book is made for lovers of romantic novels, and it creates relaxing entertainment.
Some quotes from the book:
  • «"(...) you should know that love sometimes wears away under the stress of being married. Someone you think you love now, you might start to hate when he couldn’t provide for you. And if you couldn’t take care of your children, it’d be even worse. Love doesn’t always survive under those types of circumstances [America's mom]."»
  • «(...) We couldn’t afford the luxury of wants. We had needs.»
