The author paints a political dystopian fiction in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fascinating story that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last.
I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class dystopian thriller with perfect pacing. Not much is as it appears here, which is just the way fans of sci-fi, thrillers and suspense will want it.
