Editorial Reviews Review

In this Amazon exclusive list, author Amy Tintera shares the popular TV shows that inspired Reboot.

I learned so much about writing from watching television. I know that sounds a bit odd, but TV shows have to be well-plotted, fast-paced, and feature characters you love (or love to hate) in order to be successful. There are a few in particular that inspired Reboot and influenced my writing recently:

1. Battlestar Galactica – This show asks you to think about what it means to be human. Are the Cylons lesser because they started out as a machine made by humans? How do we decide who has a soul and who has humanity?

2. The Walking Dead – Over the course of the show, different characters question just how far gone the Walkers are. They still have some brain activity left, so as I watched I always wondered – how much of the person was actually left in there?

3. Dexter – Is it ok to kill people if they’re bad? Where do we draw the line? Being inside the head of a man who loved to kill, who needed to kill in order to feel alive, is both fascinating and horrifying.

4. Friday Night Lights - This show captures small-town Texas life perfectly, and featured some of the most complex, interesting character relationships on television.

5.Buffy the Vampire Slayer – There is a lot to be learned from watching any Joss Whedon show, but Buffy taught me how to set terrible choices for characters. Do you save the world or save your boyfriend? Do you let a loved one die or sacrifice yourself? The characters in Buffy often had to make the worst, most heart-wrenching choices, and it made for riveting television.

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Wren 178 is a Reboot-one of the lucky (or unlucky) few who rise from the dead following contamination from the virus KDH. The disease kills most people, but the young and strong come back, although they don't come back quite human. After dying five years ago at the age of 12, Wren is now a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). Because she was dead for 178 minutes, the longest time on record, she is stronger and deadlier than all other Reboots in her center, which entitles her to first choice of each new batch of trainees. Generally, she chooses the kids who also have high numbers, but there's just something about Callum that speaks to her. As a 22, he is almost still human. He's slow and fragile, he questions everything, and he cares too much. Although he creeps Wren out, she finds herself becoming attracted to him and wanting to do everything in her power to keep him alive-to the point of disobeying a direct order to eliminate him when he refuses to kill a prisoner. The first half of this novel is engaging as readers are introduced to this dystopian culture, but the second half begins to drag a bit and some readers may lose interest. There is a nice setup for a sequel, but teens may not care by the time they reach that point. Better dystopian novels abound.-Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AKα(c) Copyright 2013.

By AJ VINE VOICE on June 10, 2013
Format: Hardcover
High concept YAs are everywhere. In my experience they either work really well (DELIRIUM, THE PROGRAM) or really not (PULSE, THE WARD). REBOOT surprising falls somewhere in the middle. There is a very cool world where resurrected teens are enslaved and forced to police humans. They have heightened senses but a lack of emotion that correlates to the length of time they were dead before rebooting.

All the the details about the Reboots are fascinating and seamlessly communicated without heavy info dumps. Wren 178 is the strongest, least human among the Reboots. Her emotions-or lack there of-were consistently interesting even as she began to relearn what it meant to feel thanks to her new trainee, Callum who as a 22 is almost shockingly human-like. I kind of loved the romance that developed between them. It was surprisingly tender and totally unconventional.

On the average side, however, the story lost momentum towards the end as it progressed in several predictable and tired directions. A few arbitrary obstacles fell into place to in order to make things more dire and add unnecessary complications. Still Wren's story has a lot to recommend it. Great dystopian worldbuilding, scary cool concept, and a role reversal romance. The next book in the Reboot series will be published in 2014. I'll be checking it out.

Format: Hardcover
Lacking the revolutionary struggles of the constrained society in Divergent, and the badassery and depth of character development of June in Legend, I found Reboot by Amy Tintera to be lackluster in comparison. It's already been optioned for a movie by Fox and is receiving rave reviews everywhere, but unfortunately, I couldn't see the appeal.

The concept of Rebooted humans who wake up minutes after their death stronger, faster, and with healing abilities, is appealing and unique. Those who wake up sooner after their death are more attuned to their human emotions than those who woke up later. Wren, who woke up 178 minutes after her death, is the perfect soldier. She takes on board a new student, Callum (or number 22) who is closer to human than most. He's weak, emotional, and is going to be a least when it comes to HARC, who trains the Reboots to extract or assassinate humans.

What I didn't like about Reboot:

Inconsistent main character - Because Wren was rebooted so long after her death, she's cold, emotionless, basically lacking human emotion. When she meets Callum, she is attracted to him physically, but sees him as weak as he is governed by his emotions. Instead of falling in love with Callum's human traits, she pretty much mimics him towards the end - giggling, laughing and kissing - not the emotionless soldier we believed she was.

I hadn't meant to break his leg. It was a good learning experience, one he would have needed eventually anyway, but it had been an unfortunate side effect of him not moving as quickly as I'd told him to. (Wren, Page 63)

Unappealing love interest - While Wren is the perfect soldier, Callum is weak, can't bring himself to harm or kill humans, won't follow orders, and is always crying in the book.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wren 178 is the highest number among the Reboots, and she's good at her job--both as a hunter and a trainer of newbies. She's valued as a useful tool for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation), but there's no promotion in her future. You could say that this really is a dead end job--for the Reboots and their targets. And then her fellow Reboots begin to go out of control, develop a craving for meat--not my arm, you don't--and die.

Then she takes on another challenge: Callum Twenty-two. She's always avoided training the low numbers. They're just not as good as the higher numbers, but she's a good trainer. Maybe their high death rate is due to their trainers? Is he worth it? And if he washes out, will she have to kill him or save him?

I bought this book on amazon!

My Review~
OMG OMG I totally fell in love with this book! First off I adore this cover it is unique and excellent especially after reading the book. I understand what it means. Love the cover! I have been on a dystopian kick here lately and this is a must read for all ages. It is as good as the hunger games! I watched the book trailer and bought the book mainly cause the trailer sounded so well. This is a dystopian read with mainly romance and action in it. The book itself was amazingly written and I highly enjoyed it. I loved the romance between the characters and the interactions they have. In the trailer and the book it states that the higher the number a reboot the less humanity they have. This sentence is questionable after reading this book. The sentence may have been from the perspective the government and the facility who filled the reboots and the human society with this perspective. In this book, we find out that 178 the toughest reboot actually has feelings and cares for Ever and Callum and also her guard Leb. When Wren (178) is forced to kill Callum, she does everything in her power to save him and this leads them on an epic journey. I really can't wait to read this next book in the series and see what exactly in going to transpire next. If you like dystopian you will like this book. Great YA adventure.

Amazon Book Description~
