The author has a clean, clear writing style that makes this an easy-to-read novel. And while she does an excellent job of wrapping up the first story, there's plenty of cliffhanger left to make you long for the story to continue.
Just how much power will the government have over us when 2034 arrives? Will we have any personal freedoms left at all? The scenario proposed by this novel could be exactly what we're facing. I just hope I'm as courageous as Careen when the time comes.
I'm ready for the sequel!
When I first started this book, I was really confused by the different view points. But, as I kept reading I loved how I would see the characters develop together and longitudinally rather than just alone.
Careen is a crack up, everything she does I can picture my sassy self doing and I loved reading about her, she isn't a one dimensional female hero but she also isn't just a pretty face. That is all I ever ask of a character and she gave it to me.
I think that this is a fun quick read and I feel very blessed that the author sent the book to me in return for an honest review. As an avid reader I look for books that make me think and make me want to learn more about the characters. Counteract did that for me, it is dystopian without going extremely deep into a "destroyed world" or a corrupt government. It leaves a lot of room for growth and I am more than ready to read more.
There are numerous shifts in the story as we travel from character to character. The main characters, I suppose, are teenager Careen and Tommy, who connect with each other when they determine that the "antidote" to the "terrorist attacks" (big finger quotes on that last one) that the government uses to addle the people is not the live-protecting serum they claim it is. Both of them learn, to their dismay, the lengths the government - and, most especially, the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense, is willing to go to keep its secret... well, a secret.
As I said, this is a very fast-paced book. The frequent jumps in POV were initially a little jarring and it kept me from connecting with the characters at first, but as the threads came together, it resulted in a satisfying conclusion.
On to the next book in the series!
The big conspiracy theory premise just does not work for me. It's not really Science Fiction, at least not in the vein of Norton, Bradbury, Asimov and other authors.
Not saying that it's not a good read, just not a series I want to invest more time in.
Try it out for yourself.
I was drawn by the title Resistance, but just not feeling it.
If you love Govt Conspiracy Theory books, you must read it!!!
