I think that Legend was a very good read. I enjoyed the topic of the book a lot. The author included quite a lot of detail and good descriptions of the characters. I liked the characters because they were my age and I understood some of the feeling that they were going through. I appreciated the detail that the author included in the setting also, she made it seem like I could see their every move, and she included everything from colours of bed sheets, to the view off of a building. I also loved how she included a lot of conspiracy in the book. I really enjoyed the story and I am looking forwards to reading the sequel, Prodigy. I would give this book a 9/10 and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Divergent or likes futuristic fiction novels.
