To say that Christie painted the setting perfectly - as well as the transitions - is very much an understatement. There is a very real first-hand sense of going from the serene beauty of Eden to the darkness of Earth's innards; it was easy to feel how Christie wanted his characters to feel during their travels and tribulations.
Although very precise, the symbolism that was presented is very much open to interpretation. I resonated very much with the main character, in more ways than one.
'Hurricane Regina' is a very thought-provoking adventure down the rabbit hole, one that I definitely recommend.
To be blunt, I have to compare this book to sex. It was pleasurable, unique, something different than anything I've ever had before , but man, there were times when I would have preferred to slow down and really get everything out the moment I was in before I moved on to the next part. But in the end, I enjoyed the experience so much. Yeah, it was really good for me :)
I would have loved this story to slow down, give more details, let the characters develop more. It was all there, the characters, the events, the start, middle, end... but it lacked a true depth.
In truth, that is a little thing overall with this incredibly unique story.
What did I like best about Hurricane Regina? Well, I had NO IDEA what in the world could be coming next. Not one single idea what was to come. There wasn't a part where I knew what was about to happen. Most of the time, that's great in a book, to a degree, you want to know that you understand the characters and the situation enough to have a rough idea of what they are going to do. Here, however, it makes sense to not be able to figure it out.
It's hard to know what Regina's going to do, given... wait, I said no spoilers. Well, we'll say that there's no way for us to be able to know what she's going to do next, so we'll excuse the total unpredictability here, it fits perfectly.
And the ending was WAY out of left field, to boot.
So in short, this was a shorter read that may have benefited from being expanded on, the characters developed more, and the events detailed a bit more. But overall, way forgivable.
Would I recommend this book to anyone that wants a strange, twist on tradition, almost sci-fi almost philosophical type read.
