This review is from: I Am Alive (Kindle Edition)
Oh dear, I really disliked this book.
For me, the writing was extremely poor; full of cliches, weak metaphors and pathetic characters. I found nothing at all original with the actual 'plot' itself; it was like a watered down and rip-off combination version of The Running Man, Battle Royale (GOLLANCZ S.F.) and of course The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Trilogy).
The main character, Decca, was whiney and pathetic. I cannot believe for one second that this stupid girl went to great lengths planning her entry in to the Playa by altering her results, but didn't spend a second actually studying the games beforehand to help her survive. Oh, and don't even get me started on the 'love triangle', *yawn*.
Not only was the story and the characters weak, but the editing and spelling in this book are absolutely atrocious. I expect to encounter a few editing issues with self-published ebooks, but this one was one of the worst I've ever come across and needs a serious overhaul.
I'm sure there are many people who will enjoy this book, but I am certainly not one of them.
