Secondly, I love dual narrative and personally this is one of the best uses of it I have read to date. As the story trips along and we get to see the relationship between Max and Carys develop, it then comes as a sucker punch when we go back to present time where their Oxygen levels are continuously dropping. I thought I knew exactly where this story was going but it has some wonderfully unexpected twists and turns which, in my opinion, is paid off so beautifully.
Part 3 is the part that broke me. It resonates so deeply with me at this moment in my life, there were more than a few times where I had to put the book down and take a breather. Katie perfectly captures a certain emotional journey so painfully and beautifully. I wanted to highlight so many sentences and paragraphs whilst I was reading. It evoked such a visceral reaction from me. By the time the ending dances into sight, I was ready to be saved.
I also felt that the ‘future-world’ was under-described and hard to imagine. There was a lack of colour for the details.
I can see where the author was going and the influences she had when writing it. I hoped it would be great, but I can’t agree with the other reviewers I’m afraid.
