The cover to this novel intrigued me the first time I saw it and I've wanted to read it ever since, but had to keep putting it off as I was finishing my own novel and didn't want to read anything that may interfere or influence my current writing.
With the first of my One United trilogy out of the way, inDIVISIBLE
I decided it was time. I downloaded Dan Wells' Partials and began reading.
I wanted to love this book, but the beginning kept bogging me down ... I set it aside repeatedly before I decided to push through. I'm glad I did. I felt like it really picked up at 30% through ... I actually checked my Kindle to see where I got hooked. I'm like that.
At that point, I could no longer put Partials down. I was finally intrigued by the characters, the action and the world they lived in.
I became engrossed in the descriptions, the story and the characters, so engrossed I could hardly put it down.
Partials is an interesting dystopian, in which the world has nearly come to an end through war and pandemics. The effects of which leave the people unable to keep babies alive after they're born. Faced with the possibility of extinction, the officials take drastic measures ... I cursed those officials more than once.
Overall, I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys dystopia. It hooked me enough to look forward to book two, Fragments.
