Haven has a feel similar to Orwell or Huxley as far as the storyline and writing style in my opinion and it is well though out and well written.
The characters are believable and not cardboard 2 dimensional beings.I find myself rooting for or hating characters which I rarely find novels are able to do for me.I like strong female characters and this book definitely has one in Kaylee. She is tough but likeable and knows how to take care of herself but shows moments of doubt and weakness which makes her very believable.
Its hard for me to find books that suck me in so completely but this one definitely has. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Sci/Fi with a hint of social commentary. It is well worth the price and I look forward to reading more by Justin K.
I would have given it 5 stars but there are several typos and editing could be better. The typos not completely distracting as the mistakes are few but they are there and the editing could have been better.
This writer has a good imagination, and coming up with original story lines hard to do. If the scenes had been limited to just what moves the plot along and if the mechanics had been paid any attention, this could have been a winner.
In this post-apocalyptic nightmare, it is truly a struggle to survive unless you are a Citizen. If you are a Citizen you are well-fed, well-sheltered, well-clothed and healthy. To be a Citizen is to live separate from the filthy and downtrodden, the disease ridden and the poor. To not be a Citizen is to fight to survive. Danger lurks around every corner in many guises; murder, starvation, disease, exposure to elements and lack of basic necessities.
The struggle between classes is reminiscent of times past and present; a different setting, certainly, but it smacks of the same prejudice that has always existed whether it be racial, social etc... of course, In Haven it is much more extreme.I like the way the author integrated it into the dystopian setting where people are starving, being kidnapped and `reprogrammed' in order to serve the elite. It is a compelling book and very well written.
I look forward to more works from Mr. Kemppainen. I'm not sure if there is a sequel in the works or not. If so, I'll definitely read it or anything else he writes.
