STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Exceptional. Beautifully Written, Brilliantly Read. The TV show Lost, but with a proper ending.
Oh. My. Days. This was phenomenal. The plot delivers in a way so many mysterious stories don't. The questions is poses are both genuinely puzzling and satisfyingly resolved.
For me, this as much about the characters as the plot. The seven were each interesting and complex in their own right. My favourites were Robbie (Zeno Robinson) and Ananda (Farah Merani), but I liked them all. Except maybe Bethany... But even there I was fascinated by her motivations and wondered what she would grow up to be had the world not 'whatevended'.
This was my first Gene Doucette book. I'll definitely look out for more.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for providing me with an audio ARC in return for an honest review.
