The supporting cast is a vivid and colorful collection of characters. A former girlfriend everyone thinks Joe still has a crush on, a neighbor who constantly says he sees UFOs so of course no one believes him, another friend of the female persuasion who takes Sarah shopping and becomes her new BFF.
To avoid spoilers, I just have to content myself with saying the book builds, one event following another with increasing speed. Small events from earlier crop up with ominous import until you don't know who to trust. I'm itching to spill more beans, but I won't. I'll just content myself with saying it is definitely worth the ride!
While both parts of the story are adeptly told, I’m not much of a suspense guy, and much prefer the thriller pacing. So I was itching for the story to kick into high gear. And didn’t fully settle into the book until about halfway through. That said, I can respect the author’s decision to build on a more solid foundation of well-developed characters and of getting the reader to feel fully vested in their fates before subjecting them to such peril. The decision makes all the more sense when you consider that this is the first installment in a series; if you’re going to ask people to hang in there for more than one installment, you probably will have to put more time into developing your characters than you might for a stand-alone novel. And I might hasten to add that this is a series I’ll be happy to follow along with.
I found this book to be heartwarming, thrilling and romantic all at the same time. Oftentimes when I start a book that I know will have a romantic factor, I find that it just spoils the story. However, this isn't the case with Ninety-Five Percent Human.
Joe and Sarah's relationship begins as one between two strangers brought together by an unfortunate event. Feeling a level of obligation to the girl whose life he saved, Joe allows Sarah to stay on the farm with him, and thus begins the heartwarming part of the book.
Sarah, though thin and pale, works hard and proves her worth to Joe's Nan (one of the most awesome characters ever, just by the way), and is soon accepted into Joe's life. The plot deepens as it becomes apparent that Rob, Joe's golden older brother, is up to his ears in debt and almost costs Joe the farm.
Meanwhile Sarah is surrounded by secrets and mystery, and as Joe finds himself falling for her, the aura of danger around her deepens. As Sarah begins to display some not-so-human characteristics, Joe begins to realise that the girl he's fallen for may not be entirely human...
This book is not what I was expecting at all, and I absolutely loved it. I was laughing out loud at some bits (Jake is one of my favourite characters ever and I sincerely hope he makes a return in the sequel), and the romance was done perfectly. Joe was a strong narrator and not once did I roll my eyes at his internal monologue.
Cannot wait for Five Percent Alien in 2014. I highly recommend Suzanna Williams to all lovers of sci-fi and romance.
