Reviews by niceshirt9


This is by far one of the best free ebooks that I've downloaded so far. This is my first time reading this author's work and was hooked from page one. reviews say that this book is reminiscent of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. And while the plot does loosely resemble that of Brave New World, I found that I enjoyed the author's prose and style even more. It felt like half the book consisted of suspenseful action* chronicling Joshua's upbringing on the island with the Elders, his adventure at sea, and eventually, his short-lived life on a new island, while the other half of the book expounds in great detail the thoughts that are brewing in Joshua's head as he tries to reconcile his individual thought processes with the ones that the Elders have ad-nauseum drilled into his head. Both parts were seamlessly woven together to create a story that I just couldn't put down until I'd finished the last page!

*I was so hooked on the suspense that I lost my Kindle about halfway through reading this novel and I literally searched for it for 5+ hours nonstop just so I could continue reading this book.
