    1. I'm so pleased I reread this! It was just as mind blowing the second or third time around!Meet Anna. "I hate my parents. They broke The Declarationey're in prison now. None of us knows anything about our parents anymore. Which is fine by me - I'd have nothing to say to them anyway." Imagine a world where people could live forever. A world where a pill called Longevity prevented people from dying. However, to take part in this world you must sign The Declaration - a contract confirming that you w [...]

    2. I normally love dystopian teen fic. And the premise of this one sounded fairly interesting. I just assumed I would really enjoy it. But right off the bat I was annoyed by the beginning--a nine-page-long diary entry. Such a lazy (and boring) way to give background information! I mean, diary entries CAN be done well, and written in a believable way. The ones in this book are not. A lot of times it's a case of telling instead of showing, which always makes events feel flat and not quite believable. [...]

    3. My opinion on this book swayed back and forth between 3 and 5 stars, so I eventually settled on 4 and I'm now going to do my best to explain why.Why it got 4 starsThis book got 4 stars for being a highly original and intriguing story. I'm a real lover of dystopian societies, especially those set in a foreseeable future, and this is one unlike any other but with elements that are so cleverly woven with the current thoughts and fears that it makes it seem like a tragic possibility.The book tells t [...]

    4. Would you make the choice to live forever even if it meant you wouldn't be allowed to have children? In the year 2140 most people do. In order to take Longevity, people have to sign the Declaration. People that choose to have children anyway are arrested and put in prison and the children are taken and put into something that resembles an orphanage. The children are referred to as Surplus.Surplus Anna is one of the most promising occupants of Grange Hall, a bleak and cold housing unit for illega [...]

    5. The premise: technology has advanced to the point that, with just two little capsules each day, everyone can live forever. Hooray! But if nobody's dying, the world is getting mighty crowded--so nobody is allowed to have babies anymore. Anna is a surplus, a kid born to a couple who did not Opt Out of the Declaration [apparently a legal document that says I Won't Have Children?]. So she's been shuffled off to Surplus Hall, where she learns menial housekeeping tasks to earn her keep in the world th [...]

    6. “I think sometimes you can outstay your welcome.” The YA dystopian genre is almost exploding with books at the moment, but for me Malley’s The Declaration was probably the first I read. I read it when it was first released and I remember still being up at 1am, devouring it page by page until I finished it. Reading it second time around with one of my friends and the feelings have pretty much been the same. Set in a world where no one has to die of diseases or old age, surely everybody is [...]

    7. This is not a terrible book but it's not great either. The writing seems more like a children's book but the content is young adult so that kind of bothered me. It started really really slowly, i felt like 'I get it already, She wants to be a good little surplus, surpluses are bad, just shut up and start the story already!' I got so sick of all the over explaining of EVERYTHING - Things that could have easily been written into the plot or the reader could easily work out for themselves. It also [...]

    8. 4.5 - Yikes. If there's anyone out there who thinks only the horror genre can scare them they need to pick this up. I have a hard time with the classification of some books, YA in particular. Why is this YA? Because of the main characters? There are more than a few supporting non-teen characters. What are they? Nothing? I mean, I'm a decent ways past my teens and I can say that I'd recommend this more to adults than to teens. Now, I know more adults than teens so that may play a part, but it's a [...]

    9. This book surprised me in a good way. I had expected to give it 3 stars, but in the end I had to give it an extra star for the huge twist that I never saw coming. This book has the political view points of Unwind and the government pull of Hunger Games. During the story you find out what happens to the word when a drug company finds a way for people to stop the aging process and what has to be done in order to preserve resources. People are made to sign a declaration in which they promise to sto [...]

    10. The Declaration wordt gekenmerkt door een enorm originele dystopische wereld, die je aan het denken zet over de wetenschap en de bijbehorende ethische kwesties. Heeft de onsterfelijke mens het alleenrecht op de aarde of moeten we juist de wetten van de natuur volgen? De levensechte personages - gebrainwasht en al - brengen het verhaal tot leven en de vlotte schrijfstijl zorgt dat je het boek geen seconde naast je neer wilt leggen. Ik kan niet wachten om verder te lezen over Surplus Anna.Mijn com [...]

    11. This book could've been really been nice, but it absolutely wasn't. I liked the idea of the story, but hated how it was told. The characters were flat and uninteresting, but what I hated most about this book was the writing. It was immature and everything was described with the same words. Like I said, this could've been a really good book, but it was pretty much ruined by the writing and how the author told the story.

    12. Okay, it wasn’t bad. It’s not a 5 star but I’ll graciously give it 4 stars. 5 stars would be if I’d read it more than once lol. The MC, Anna, like most YA or dystopian girls was uptight and kind of a brat. This book is all about longevity and living forever if it meant you couldn’t have kids. As long as you agreed to that, you were given longevity pills to live forever. Cancer was cured, aids was cured, everything was cured. There are no illnesses. Instead, if you have a child illegall [...]

    13. I read this one back in high school, and remember loving it. This time around, it was a bit too YA for my current taste. I won’t be reading the rest of the series. The premise is interesting, but the characters are too immature, and things get resolved too quickly, neatly and unbelievably for my liking.

    14. Oh my gosh, I LOVED this book! And it's so annoying, because I've had it sat on my bookcase for a few years for some reason! The whole series in fact! Foolish past me!I wasn't expecting to love this so much. I thought it would just be one of those quick reads that you enjoy enough, but it's not amazing. But boy was I wrong! I'm speed typing this so I can go and start the second book right away!I loved Anna's character. I thought it was really well done how much she's bought all the brainwashing [...]

    15. This is teen targeted fiction published by Bloomsbury Children's Books, but the premise is so completely fascinating that I'd literally recommend this book to the 12 to 102 crowd with no reservations.It's the year 2140 and the fountain of youth has come to the world by way of Longevity, a drug that literally letspeople live forever. But it's caused a problem--if everyone lives forever, the planet is going to fill up--FAST. The solution is to ban anyone on Longevity from having children, and bann [...]

    16. 4.5 stars really. It started off kind of slow but I enjoyed it overall. There were some surprises and I felt the ending was different than most dystopian YA books, which I liked. I also got an Anne Frank vibe which I didn't hate.

    19. This story is set in a future world where people live forever making it illegal to have children because of overpopulation. Longevity drugs have made it possible for people to live forever but with this brings a tremendous strain on the world. We certainly get a look at life in such a world. A world where there are not children. Children that have been conceived illegally are taken to facilities where they are raised to be slaves for those that are legal. They are treated as surplus citizen and [...]

    20. Have just had a weekend of teen fiction though when I bought this book and ' I am number four' a few months ago I did not realize they were written for the younger end of the market. This is a cleverly chilling concept of society in which a drug called ' Longevity' has resulted in old age, or at least death, becoming something one opts into, bringing about the horrendous situation where children become as rare as hens' teeth and can only be born if the parent is prepared to die for them; a life [...]

    21. Dobrá kniha. Určitě bych ji doporučila spíše mladším čtenářům, i když je doporučena od patnácti. Třeba by to starší nemuselo bavit ale zase je tady ta stránka knihy, nad kterou se nedá docela dost dobře zamyslet. :)

    22. ספר דיסטופי על אנגליה עתידנית שבה אנשים לוקחים כדורים שמעניקים חיי נצח, אסור ללדת ילדים, ויש משבר אנרגיה. הילדים שנולדים באופן לא חוקי הופכים להיות משרתים נחותים, או שהורגים אותם. הספר מעלה סוגיות מאוד רלוונטיות על מעמדות ועל אריכות החיים שרק הולכת וגדלה. ברובו הגדול הוא מאוד [...]

    24. Reviewed by Natalie Tsang for TeensReadTooC.S. Lewis, author of THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, once wrote that there are three ways of writing for children. The first is to cater to what children want (but people seldom know what they want and this usually ends badly), the second develops from a story told to a specific child (Lewis Carrol's THE ADVENTURES OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND, for instance), and the third is that it is simply the best art form to convey the story.

    25. Well, this was quite the unexpected surprise! The Declaration was such a nice, enjoyable, short read, compared to what I thought would be another shallow dystopian book.The storyline was incredibly fascinating and just got more intriguing the more I read. It really was nothing like I expected. In another futuristic, messed-up world, drugs that stop all sicknesses and suppress old age have been created. But with nobody dying anymore, the Earth is slowly filling up, so a new rule is applied if you [...]

    26. The Declaration is one of those stories which in my opinion don’t get enough publicity. Its both eye opening, and heart warming story. It tells the story of Anna, who is a surplus. Surpluses are children which the world has no room for as they’ve developed a anti-mortality drug. Anna lives in Grange Hall with other surpluses, where she is trained to be “useful” and a “good asset” which to Anna means that she’ll be able to make up for the crime of being born.Children are a rarity in [...]

    27. WOW. I'm going to have to ruminate on this one before I write a review. Very different type of book.UPDATED 9/14/10Having ponderend it someI'd actually give this book a 4.5 - .5 of that being for the sheer innovativeness of the story. It wasn't an apocalypse, exactly, but life as we know it has ended. Well, for some, because the people in THIS story are living forever. A drug has been invented to allow people virtual immortalityor so it seems. Because of this, the earth has become crowded to the [...]

    28. Set in the year 2140 when the world population subsists primarily on the drug Longevity, which holds aging at bay, this dystopian novel seemed just what the doctor ordered for a particularly stubborn reading slump. Couples are only allowed one child and any they have illegally after that are known as Surpluses. Surpluses are taken away from their parents and raised in a facility such as Grange Hall where our protagonist Surplus Anna resides. They are intended to learn how to be useful to society [...]

    29. The Declaration is set in the UK in the future. A future where resources are scarce and people live forever, thanks to the wonder drug Longevity. In order to be eligible to take Longevity, people have to sign the Declaration, stating they will never have any children.ough there are some who have broken the rules. These children are called Surpluses, they are seen as a drain on precious resources and they need to work in order to replay their debt to society, and atone for the sins of their paren [...]

    30. I really like the characters and the book was interesting and thought provoking. I did not suspect that Peter would be Mrs. Princeton's son! The premise was fascinating and the book moved quickly. The setting was adequately explored without the book being lengthy and the language complemented the message. The ending was suitable, though I can't help but feel as if something is missing. That is why I did not give it five stars: there was something more I wanted. However, that aside, I loved this [...]
