Review Glistening Haven by Jill Cooper

Book Description

 September 27, 2012
"Breathtaking and mind-blowing dystopian thriller, a must-read for all Veronica Roth's fans.-- Sarah in Bookland"

Susan Monroe doesn't ask for much: good grades from her children, a house with room for a pool, to be the best Tupperware party host in New Haven 56.

But inside her tranquil 1950s styled community, a monster lurks. A monster that lives inside Susan, and every one of her superficially perfect neighbors, held in check by the oppressive police state that rules over them.

Susan's happy life is torn apart when her teenage son goes missing the same night an explosion rips apart the community. Susan knows it’s only a matter of time before the police start breaking down their doors.

Before the reconditioning begins and Susan's identity is lost, she must do one final thing.

Find her son.

A sexy dystopian novel, The Glistening Haven is set in the future where society's attempt for beauty and perfection nearly destroyed it. Murder, sex, duplicity and drama, join us in the world of New Haven 56. 

My Review:

I loved this book, Hollywood is no more, all the fake people gone. All diets, pills, plastic surgery, creme and any other alternations have result in monsters. they are still human but in their monster shape they killed lots of people, the story picks up with the new encampment New Have 56, where everything goes by rules and under pressure of the NH police. they are cruel to the people there, when they say something they don't like they are taken away and most times not see or heard from anymore.

Glistening hunter Jenna, brings in new Glistenings, the police in 56 don't trust Jenna still after what she did. Besides the chief, he is still a believer in Jenna who is one of the best hunters. When he and his family get killed Jenna investigates it but they work against her. She is even stopped. Jenna wouldn't be Jenna if she would let that stop her, for any costs she will bring the chiefs killer(s) to justice. All points towards police and higher, and Jenna plus her team go wild and escape custody to find the chief's daughter and reveals what is going on.
