As the story progresses the author drops hints about how the planet ended up in the shape it is in and develops the readers understanding slowly via the protagonists internal monologue and interactions with others.
As the story progresses the protagonist - who starts out as a competent and strong young woman (booyah!), is thrown into various situations that stretch that competence and tosses in some some unexpected personal oddness that she has to deal with.
This novel grabs your attention in a slow manner and builds to the end. Thankfully this is just the first novel and I expect the following novels to expose more detailed world building (and back story) and development of the protagonist!
Simply put - a great story!
Tara is quite the character. She's strong and witty, and I related to her from the very beginning. She’s been sheltered her entire life which leads to her naivety, and you want to reach through your kindle and guide her along. But she's smart in her decisions and doesn't really need my consoling.
I like the world the author created. It's unique and wonderfully written. That's the part that stayed with me after reading the story. Some of the characteristics and characters in general were so well written that I still keep thinking about them.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes dystopian or even paranormal books. And I'll definitely be moving on to the next story.
2.) The post apocalypse world is highly creative and not like anything I've read before. I love how Tara's mind is blown by simple things we take for granted. To her, vehicles seem like monsters and ordinary Coke bottle tops are extraordinary. Viewing this world through Tara's eyes is the absolute best thing about this book!
I did have a really hard time with Tara's dialect. I enjoyed the depth that it brought to her character, but I wish it had been reserved for her spoken dialogue and not so much for her narrative. It took me a little while to get into the book because of this, but not enough to keep me from enjoying Tara's story.
I am definitely eager for the next book and can't wait to see what happens with Tara and Jax!
