I have also included my review of the book and the book trailer for you to watch. As well as links to make it easy for you to go grab your own copy of this short book.
After reading the summary I thought oh this sounds like an interesting story. 80 pages is very short and was definitely a quick read for me. I must say that I was a bit disappointed in the story. I will explain why.
This is supposed to be a dystopian novel, but I can't really say that it was one. Yes it has some of the key factors, a defunct society, a ruthless leader, a disease that wiped out the world before, but I read the prologue and the names Luc and Leia immediately jumped out at me. I thought the clothing fit the characters from Star Wars, and immediately I went um, no.
That being said, I did read the entire book in about an hour. It is a very quick read. And Leia actually grows from this child of 10 who is forced from her home by society rules, into a young woman who questions. Unfortunately, she seemed rather boring. There just wasn't enough character development for me, yes I know it was a short book but even in those I like to know my characters a bit.
I did like the way the author explained the link to star wars. That was a fun part of the book for me. Other than that, the entire society was just... ah you'll have to read it to determine for yourself.
What I will say is that if the writer decides to rewrite this book as a much larger story it may actually pull all the aspects together. It has a great deal of potential for a larger novel. I just think that for this genre a novella just won't work because it feels far too rushed.
If you are a Geek like me, you will easily see the entire Star Wars aspect of the society. So you may enjoy it or not. Hard to tell. Sadly for me, it just didn't do it. But don't just go by my opinion many other people loved the book. So go grab your own copy. In the mean time... Let the Force Be With YOU!
Details/Disclaimer: I received this book for free for my honest review. This free book held no determination on my final review.
