This review is from: Meta (Paperback)
The first thing that stuck me about Meta is just how easy a read it truly is. The short chapters and constantly developing storyline make it extremely difficult to put the book down. Many a time I have thought: "right, one more chapter" and I've ended up reading for another half an hour.
The story begins with an immediately likeable and genuine character, Connor, and quickly 'sets the scene' for the novel. The story is very humorous and entertaining, and those who follow the podcast 'The Complete Guide to Everything' will quickly begin to notice Tom's wit and humour within the text.
The novel deeply emerges the reader into the struggle of Connor's newly grained superpowers and the consequences this places upon his moral and social judgement. Tom has created an extremely real character that satisfies the reader whilst challenging their moral compass. The closing scenes of the novel provide a good base for further exploration of the Meta world and the characters within it during a next novel. I definitely hope this is the case.
Ultimately, it is a fantastic, easy read, that will provide many laughs and just basically put you in a good mood. If you follow Tim and Tom's podcast, it is an absolute necessity you read this book, its awesome.
