It started well and it did a good job at keeping my attention for short reading stints before bed, but nothing more. I found I could take it or leave it most of the time, like it was lacking some suspense that could have made it so much better. The plot is interesting and it has a lot of action packed scenes at the beginning and the end mostly. The middle fell flat for a while and the underlying love story seemed to hold centre stage for a while and it was only after that took a back burner again that the characters really started to come alive for me and I started to get to know them more. Lexa is strong willed, good at her job and will do anything, including risking her life to stand up for what she believes in. A great protagonist that has the potential to develop well within the series.
I liked how the story progressed overall and the little surprises along the way really made the story for me as I didn't expect most of them and found myself shocked at one particular revelation in the book. The surprises really helped to increase the enjoyment I got out of the book.
The ending, for me, felt a little let down. I felt that it could have been dragged out that little bit more to increase the suspense and I felt a little let down when it ending and I never felt the big dramatic ending that I'd hoped for.
Overall a great start to the series that's left me wanting more and looking forward to the next installment in 2015.
There was a twist in the story that appears about halfway through, and depending on how good you are at guessing things, that might have been a surprise, but perhaps not. The second half of the book really ramps up, and I was then totally engrossed right to the end, and will definitely be on the look out for the next instalment.
I really liked how Kendra portrayed the characters, particularly the humanisation of the "artificials" which was so well done. I love the kind of book that look to the future in a "what if" manner - and while mankind haven't taken this route, so far, in terms of robotics, it's something that I, and many others, can believe to be a feasible future. So much more enjoyable than the mundane current reality...
I'll definitely be looking up Kendra's other works.
This book is one of the best I have ever read and as a fan of the hunger games and Divergent this book didn’t disappoint. The characters and the story are strong and this book was a very good read. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA dystopian fiction.
I was pleased to discover that the Unstrung world and characters are almost as developed and engrossing as the Matt Archer series was.
The plot is impossible to talk about without offering spoilers but it safices to say that it takes the reader places that I could never have imagined from the outset.
In all, this is a gripping start to what promises to be an amazing series. I can't wait for book 2.
