I am going to say that it appears after 900 years of living you lose your dang mind!! Seriously!! You are gonna hate this bad guy and his twisted thinking!
There are many highs and lows in this story emotionally. Have tissues handy! Life in a dystopian world is ugly sometimes. It is something I have come to expect, but still breaks my heart.
The story flows nicely, although it is slow it doesn't feel heavy. I expected the story to drag because of the pace, happily it did not.
It is all from the lead character's POV, which does limit things. You do not know what others are thinking unless they say or do something. Have Jimmy or Hannah's perspective would add so much to the story. I can only hope that will occur in later books.
I wish we had a bit more of his life with his father. The home life and testing flew by, you hardly had a chance to see where he came from. It would have given later events even more impact.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Michael Braun, who delivers a wonderful read. He has consistent and distinct voices throughout the read. My only real complaint is that the pace is very slow, even when I sped it up in the app. Fortunately that did not effect the energy of the story throughout the read. I love his tone, especially wen he is reading for Jimmy.
Overall, I was thrilled with this book and am sure many young men will be thrilled to see it in the genre. Much of YA is female protagonist, which is great but I know young men who are looking for guy leads too. This is one of those books that will appeal to both male and female readers. It is an interesting twist on the genre and I am eager to see where things are headed!
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
Winfield’s first novel in The Park Service Trilogy, The Park Service, explores some ethical and moral dilemmas regarding mankind’s role in destroying the Earth. It is also a story about friendship and loyalty. This young adult dystopian tale does an excellent job of world building and character development.
The trek to locate the Foundation is a bit long and tedious. Winfield answers just enough questions to leave you wanting for more.
4 out of 5 stars.
So, I figured I'd try "Park Service." Although I liked the characters, I don't think I will continue with the trilogy. It's not that I don't like YA fiction. I actually do. It' just that book one seemed to be "padded" and could have been shorter. (Slight spoiler: I think there was too much description of the planet when Aubrey is getting a tour from the drone.) If he would have cut down some of the padding, I think the book would have flowed better. I think the reason it has so much of it is, without it, it might not have been long enough and could have hampered the ability to turn it into a trilogy.
I'll stick with his adult-oriented books but will not follow Aubrey and Jimmy as they move forward.
Spoiler alert: the pig island is scientifically confusing - everything else was plausible, but this was just not
Family friendly - 1 out of 5 (violent, violent, bloody, violent, scene suggestive of incest, and violent)
Free of grammar/spelling errors - 4 out of 5
Entertaining - 1 out of 5 (too dark/twisted/sickening)
Captivating - 5 out of 5 - it's not that predictable, and it keeps you guessing
