The only reason this book exist is to satisfy a market, it has no other intrinsic value but the commercial purpose of selling.
Charley the main character, is a very good fighter and wants to avenge his brother, he is a very good fighter and what they did to his brother is unforgivable, but he is a very good fighter, did I mention that he is a very good fighter, well not as many times as the writer of the book. Also he has a score of 118 a very high score and he is a very good fighter with a score of 118 which makes him good looking and a very good fighter, attributes you need when you have a quest of hunting weaponized animals like a snake-ostrich, or the terrifying rhinoceros-giraffe. Do you have any doubt that Chaley With a score 118 and being a very good fighter will defeat all? or perhaps we will be left a a point where he might be defeated but we will find that out in the next exciting instalment?Read more ›
The story follows a young lad, Charley, who’s reached the city’s adulthood age and is coming to terms with the grim reality that comes with living in Meritropolis. Meritropolis is a city that was formed 3 years After The Event, A.E, 50,000 human survivors settled and followed rule under the System. The System defines your worth with a numerical score and decides who exceeded their social usefulness and to but put Out of the gates, the gates which protects the city from the animal combinations that have taken over the Earth.
Charley is a high scorer and you follow him on his journey of either accepting his place in society or to revolt against the System. The story is fast paced and as a reader I found myself yearning for more, turning each page with anticipation. As I read I found myself empathising with charley and questioning what I would do if placed in the same situation, how it would make me feel and examining if I am a follower or a leader, which was rather rare to find in a young adult fiction.
As enthralling as the book was I did however find myself questioning elements of the world and its believability. There is no clear explanation to what The Event was, only it being caused by man, and the main story is set 12 years after this had happened and 9 years after the towns creation. The time scales seemed far too short for people to be so compliant with such brutal measures to control the population of Meritropolis.Read more ›
Is this book meant for young adults? If so the author needs to realise that that doesn't mean you have to spell out everything utterly without subtlety and only use really simple sentence structure. Also the English language has pronouns for a reason, you don't need to use the character name at every turn.
Would have liked to like this book, but can't.
