Reviewer Rating:


The Panopticon​ is an untraditional thriller about Anais Hendricks, a 15 year old juvenile delinquent. The novel takes place in what appears to be Scotland, given the heavy and realistically curse-word ridden accent that lends heavily to the atmosphere and mood of the book. Anais is a victim of her circumstances and much of the content in this novel is dark and upsetting, but written beautifully and humorously. Anais is such a rich and lovely character that will allow most readers to glean the light in the dystopian, drug-addled world of The Panopticon​. In fact all the characters are charming, but troubled miscreants that demonstrate immense darkness, but also wisdom and spunk.
