Things I Liked:
It is a complex and unique story, full of twists and strange happenings. I've really never read anything quite like it. I enjoyed the characters, though sometimes I had a hard time understanding or relating to them. The plot picks up a lot about half-way through and becomes very interesting. I had a difficult time putting it down, because it really grabbed your attention and I keep thinking about its ideas and the very unique story. Definitely one that will make you think.
Things I Didn't Like:
I admit I had a hard time getting into it for the first half of the book. The writing seems very dry and sometimes not terribly clear in its explanations. I never really connected with anyone, though I particularly love Nown. While my interest is piqued, I admit it was mostly just ok for me. Not amazingly fantastic, but not too dull. I'll still be picking up the sequel, Dreamquake, to see how it ends.
It kinda felt spooky like The Giver by Lois Lowry
Premise reminded me of Wake, Fade, and Gone by Lisa McMann (though I haven't read them)
BOOK CONTENT RATINGS:
one or two
some slight innuendo
some terrifying parts
Overall rating: ***
Anybody else find themselves interested in too many series, even if the books aren't that great?
If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage
