WHEN WE WAKE is a very political book, and, to a lesser degree, a very religious book. Those aren’t necessarily bad things. But when the politics and religion are preachy, it becomes much harder to enjoy the story hiding underneath.
Genre: Science Fiction
How does an almost 600 page book end up feeling too short? Masterful plotting, harrowing danger, meticulously detailed worldbuilding with a complex history, and truly human characters even when they aren’t actually human.
I was so intrigued by the blurb for THE DIFFERENT GIRL because just from the short description, I had so many questions. What made May different? Why were the four girls on the island? Why are they identical? Unfortunately, after having read the book, I am left with more questions and few answers.
