Getting better and better
on 26 July 2012
Enjoyed Book one, loved book two and running out of Stars for book 3. If these keep improving the way they do, god only knows how I am going to put down book 4 when it comes out.
The strength of Woodings writing lies in his character development, as you slowly get to know more about the characters you fall in love with them all even more.
The Crew are starting to gel now, and it is good to see such strong bonds developing. Frey and Crake in particular are building a believable and solid friendship, and the crew as a whole is now one that knows that each member can rely on every other. Silo gets some strong development here, and Jez too grows as a character - starting to explore her Mane side. I am really enjoying seeing where she goes with this, and am intrigued to know how Wooding will continue this without her losing herself and going to far.
Malvery too has grown in this book - looking forward to seeing more of the heroic side of the doc.
The best part is all this character and development happens alongside a cracking story which keeps you hooked from start to finish. All I need now is a time machine so I don't have to wait for the next installment.
