This was probably one of the greatest books ever written. The characters' perspectives are woven together to create a beautiful story of glamor, lies, and treachery.

I loved this book! The way that each chapter was separated into a different persons perspective made it really enjoyable and easy to tell who we were focusing on in that moment, which was something I was worried about when you get this many perspectives in a book. I liked all of the different characters as well and understood why they were doing what they were. Sure they were questionable at times, but getting to see whats going on in everyone head made this book fly by. If I had to compare it to any other type of books already out, I would have to say its gossip with the way most of the characters act/live and then proxy by Alex London with how the lower class system was set up kind of. There were similarities but nothing that looked like a copy to me. Also I would recommend writing the characters name and a specific something about them to help keep it all straight especially if you are reading more than one book at a time. As for who fell of the roof, well that's just something you'll have to read to find out.

It wasn't what I expected. There were times when the pacing seemed to be a little off. Still a thrilling read.

Was confusing because of the frequent switching of the point of views. Interesting concept, but had a boring plot.

A suspenseful ride in near-future world supersaturated with technology, both environmental and implanted, this story's engine is fueled by the sort of interpersonal intrigue that may attract fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars who don't necessarily consider themselves SF readers.

If you do not like it at first, try to stick to it! Each POV-style chapter reveals more about the characters. Though the group seems vapid and party-oriented at first, deeper issues like economic disparity, drug addiction, and difficult interpersonal relationships are later uncovered.

Think Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl, but a hundred years in the future, and on a gigantic, thousand-floor building. What would you get? The Thousandth Floor, of course. It is Manhattan, in the year 2118. A massive 1000-floor skyscraper has been built, in a style akin to a social pyramid: the richest and most famous people live at the top in gorgeous, luxurious apartments, while the poor live in desolate conditions on the bottom. Rich in drama and action, The Thousandth Floor follows the lives of 5 broken teenagers, each on 5 different floors, with their own dark secrets and pasts. Leda Cole hides a dangerous drug addiction. Watt Bakardi is a tech genius on a treacherous mission. Rylin Myers is a low-status girl suddenly swept into the world of the elite. Eris Dodd-Ranson’s previous life crumbles in seconds, after a painful betrayal. And living above them all, on the thousandth floor, is Avery Fuller, who is haunted by a romance she can never have. Filled with deception, drama and blackmail, The Thousandth Floor is a wonderfully written peek at the not-so-perfect lives of the dystopian elite. Do yourself a favour, and get a copy. Right now.

I was really not expecting what would happen at all when I first picked up the book. Just a warning for teens: mature audience only! There was a lot of content that I believe wouldn't be sensible for readers below the age of 16, at the very least. Such include the subjects of drug abuse, alcohol, sex, stalking, and a lot of bad decisions made through fear and secrets. It might take some time to organize who is who, as the perspective shifts between 5 people, but readers will start forming relations with the characters. Sometimes they are relatable, and other times not so much. But each and every one of them are unique to themselves, and the ending will leave everyone shocked for sure. My heart still aches from that fall. 4/5 stars

Before I start to praise this book, I first need to thank the author, Katharine McGee. After reading reviews of The Thousandth Floor on Goodreads, I realized that all the reviews had one thing in common: they all compared this novel to the TV show, Gossip Girl. And that is what started my Gossip Girl binge-watching marathon. So thank you Katharine McGee for making my summer somewhat entertaining. Okay, back on track. One thing I loved about this book was the never-ending drama: the love triangles, illegal activities and forbidden crushes. After finishing this novel, I couldn’t stop thinking about the ending for days. To be honest, The Thousandth Floor is my favorite book this summer.
