I had no idea what to expect; but as soon I read page one, I was whisked away to a madhouse of egotistical, sadistic gym rats who took fitness to the extreme. For those who didn’t or couldn’t achieve the ideal physique in their world-with bulging muscles and without fat…they were punished with full days of training, persecutions, and even death. There was no patience for those who didn’t achieve the ideal of the regime in power.
Maggie, the main character was a fatty; she rebellious and didn’t meet the requirements set in the party line, but she was allowed to do so. She was ‘special’ and she didn’t follow the new world order but was given many chances to live while others met a gruesome fate. Why?
I tried to figure out the Why? and this drove me on, page after page, to discover my answer. At the end we do find out, and it won’t disappoint.
This book is worth the read; the setting is an unusual one to encounter with a list of characters that make you laugh, cry, and feel anger towards.
This was much more and much different than I expected. Far darker. But creepily engaging. I found myself becoming more and more in tune with the main character. Kind of ironic since she lived in a universe without tunes: “There was no music anymore. There were thumping, electronic sounds that were engineered to produce a maximum heart rate, but that wasn’t music.”
Her determination to beat the system was empowering. Quite literally for her; quite subconsciously for the reader. I found myself defiantly hitting the supermarket for dessert half way through. Subliminal response? Perhaps.
A small smattering of typos (the bane of all books lately, not just Indies) was less detracting than usual. Most likely because the story was so engaging.
I wasn't sure about this book when I picked it up. It's not something I would normally read, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The writing style is good, offering enough description to stimulate the reader's own imagination. I would certainly be open to reading more of this author's work in the future, I was captivated beginning to end.
