Found: Modern apocalyptic kids survival, Name that Book (tammikuu 2023)

Kirja-arvosteluja

DNF at 34%.

This is a pretty formulaic dystopian YA, and I gave it a good shot but I think I'm outgrowing this genre. The idea of kids getting a disease that either killed them or gives them deadly superpowers at puberty was interesting, but the structure and tone is a lot like Divergent or The Hunger Games but more "meh". I'm just not feeling it, and I've got other things to read.

About the Book:
Ruby is in a world where all of the children are at risk, and the ones who haven’t died are different. All of the children who lived are now in a camp and sorted based on their ability. Green being the least dangerous and Orange being the most. Ruby is an orange. This story is about Ruby coming to terms with her abilities and learning how to control them. She made it out of the camp, but she didn’t know how dangerous it would really be. Nor did she know what else was out there.

Review:
I went a little out of my comfort zone reading this book because I am more used to YA romance, but I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was very engaging and I never found myself wanting to put it down. I will say I was a bit confused in the beginning, but once you understand the premise of the book it makes way more sense. I enjoyed the characters as well, they are all likable and I am excited to learn more about them in the next books! The only reason I knocked the book down a star was because the ending made me angry, but not to the point where I wouldn’t recommend it.

This book wasn't the best fantasy I've read all year - but I think it has potential, and it's not unusual for the first book in a series to need a little settling in. It was enjoyable on its own, and I'm interested enough to see how the next one feels.
