4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly impressive, 27 July 2012
This review is from: The Adjusters (Paperback)
Received the proof copy from publishers last month but it took a really long time for me to get round to reading, but when I did I enjoyed it rather a lot.
The story, almost like a Stepford Wives but for kids, was incredibly interesting and the tension was building throughout. This was a book that I ended up reading while walking down the street because I was just so desperate to know what was going to happen to these characters! The action scenes were written with immense precision and class, the dialogue so truthful and realistic and the majority of the characters were very well thought out, particularly Christian (who I wish we could've seen more of).

The ending left a little to be desired. Rather than ending the book outright, there was an epilogue that worked as a set up for a 2nd book which, in all honesty, they do NOT need. If you read it, you'll understand.

The main character, Henry ward, originally came across as a little bit dense, untrusting and, at times, sort of whiny, as if he was almost looking for a reason to get into trouble. His motivation was a little bit shallow based on the evidence he received. However, he slowly grows on you and you become caught up in his story and you feel for him quite a bit as he becomes something of a hero.

I would definitely recommend this to someone because, on the whole, it was enjoyable. Probably to be read by 11+, early teens perhaps too as there are some scenes of mild horror and violence within it.
