Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looking for more An eARC was provided by the publisher for review. The world is set into the future and what a future it is. People travel on d-mats, eliminating the entire transportation industry. And with high-tech technology there comes a price. Clair stumbles upon the WHOLE who are known to her as terrorists. Once her best friend Libby gets sucked into their Improvement program, that's when she realizes her world is a sham and the people who claim to protect her, are the very people who also want to kill her. I find the story line to jump all over the place with many words and not a lot of definitions. Call me confused but I just had to assume some of these words meant something in its context. Is that a good thing or a bad thing that I'm using my own imagination? I'm hoping to figure out more about this world. Although, I won't be grasping for the next release either. I also didn't care so much for Clair or Zep. I couldn't connect with them at all. And boy did I try. There was just something about them that I didn't particularly like. Maybe it was the fact that she didn't really care about her friendship with Libby and that was her best friend. You don't just drop friends like that! It bugged me soooo much. Overall, I find that the book had a great story, but I just didn't love the characters and that to me is also why I didn't enjoy Twinmaker as much as I hoped.
