While I didn't love it, I liked it better than the first one. I wasn't quite as bored. I liked the characters better in this one. I liked the new characters introduced. This book just had more personality than "The Search For WondLa." I liked how they were in the city for the first part of the book and not just wandering mindlessly in the desert the whole way through the book. It still could have used some editing. It was a little too eco-friendlywe belong to the planetmother earth for my taste. I will be reading the last one if only to see how he plans to end the series but I won't be rereading this one.
