Congratulations to Jason for his improvements in story telling, and I look forward to his next work.
Excellent writing style, great character development, and an entertaining story; I read it quickly. I’ve already enjoyed the authors other stories, and this one did not let me down. On a personal note, I am not a huge fan of this genre (or sub-genre…whatever you want to call it). But, similar to the Hunger Games, I couldn’t put it down.
There is some violence in this book, so a more mature audience is recommended; upper teens would be okay, I think.
4 of 5 Stars
Told from the boy's POV we follow his journey to survive the Selection. All boys must undertake a survival course, at a certain age, on their colonial planet. The rugged, dangerous, backstabbing trip is familiar. In addition, his eyes will be open to the extreme cruelty of this test, and he must decide how he will react to this new knowledge.
As others have said, it is a hard book to put down, and a quick read. I recommend it to all who are interested in primitive survival and dystopian societies. I think middle grade on up will enjoy this. It is an interesting question of where the character will go, what he will do in a sequel.
Some mothers may not want their boys to read Jason Nugent's The Selection.
If you need to man up or man up your boy, I can recommend the following: Derek Prince's Husbands and Fathers, C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man, Aristotle's The Nichomachean Ethics, The Book of Job and my own novella, Francesco Augustine Berndadone.
The plot moves nicely, the characters are interesting and relatable, and the setting is just amazing.
The book is very entertaining, an easy read, and you will not want to put it down!
