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.
900 years into the future, post apocalyptic earth has become a toxic place; where everybody lives underground. At least, that is what Aubrey van Houten has been taught. Aubrey lives with his father in a five story underground community called ‘Holocene II’ somewhere in what used to be New Mexico.
Like all 15 year-olds Audrey is about to undergo a test that will determine his future role within the community. His father will soon turn 35 which means he will retire to Eden; a virtual world where you live forever and can do anything you want.
Soon, Audrey, finds out everything is not the way he thought it was, the truth turns out to be a lot more sinister.
The book is thought provoking at times; it deals with challenging subjects such as over population and corruption. The premise of the story was good, although not unique. The descriptive writing of the author really brings the story and the characters to life. However at times, the characters actions felt unnatural. The friendship between Hannah and Audrey exemplifies this; they are best friends almost as soon as they meet but Audrey is too trusting of Hannah and Hannah’s family and is too willing to abandon Jimmy after sharing such a long perilous journey with him.
Overall this is an entertaining read for those who can handle yet another dystopian, young adult novel. Fans of the Hunger Games will probably enjoy it. I give it 3.5 stars.
In this novel, our main character Aubrey, lives deep below the surface of the Earth. All his life Aubrey has been taught that due to a nuclear war a thousand years ago, the surface of Earth is a blasted wasteland where nothing can survive. What remains of humanity survives on artificial food and recycled possessions. When a person reaches the age of thirty-five they are "retired" to live the rest of their days in beautiful place called Eden.
At the age of fifteen, each adolescent takes a test to determine his or her future. If they do poorly, they are sent to the lower levels where work is hard and life is less pleasant. Those who do well, can remain on their current level. A few who do exceptionally well can move to a higher level where life is easier and more comfortable.
When he takes his test, Aubrey does something no one else has ever done. He aces the test. This means he can advance to level 1. The highest and most prestigious level.
On the trip to level one, something happens. And Aubrey discovers that his life, until now, has been a lie.
What will Aubrey do when he is confronted with the truth about life on Earth?
This novel us a great beginning to a trilogy. The story is not over. The author leaves us wondering what will happen next. I am eager to find out. And book two of this trilogy is now on my must read list.
Bravo to the author for creating an interesting and exciting novel.
