Has anyone read Wither, book one of the Chemical Garden series?

I finished it recently and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. :)

Kit, one of our reviewers on the main site, did a review of it back in April.  You can read it here if you like.  She gave it an 8/10. :)

I've just finished this.  I was a bit "hmm" to start with, but the story did suck me in, and I will look out for th others in the series.

I also had trouble remembering how young the main characters were, they didn't act that way for most of the time.

I couldn't put it down, found it very compelling, but if you asked me what I liked about it I wouldn't be able to say.
