I decided to buy the book and give it a chance after reading the reviews where it was sold My EReader is full of free books from promotion but this one caught my attention I hadn t read a sci fi in a while so I thought, Why not Although a little bit hard to follow at times when the author moves from one character to another to introduce them I understood that at some point it would fit together It was just hard to remember everything The author did an amazing job with the Indigen
This book has a lot of different character perspectives I have a general rule, that I will only allow tolerate this kind of thing from George R.R Martin, because he gives me no choice, even if I skip all the chapters starting with Theon, to read all the chapters starting with Tyrion instead Tangent over.So we have, Bill, Stephen, Jenny, Ben, some guy and his parents, a pilot, the guy that has a crush on the pilot, some evil Government Corporate staff, so on, an so forth I have just listed 9 possible character perspectives You feel me In the future, earth has turned into the cesspit that we all saw coming, unbreathable air, hardly any natural food to be found, but there is a solution and Exilon is it s name However Exilon is already inhabited, by a mostly underground species that lives in crude tunnels underground, they are tall, fast, colder blooded, and kill ravenously and eat their prey raw And when the attempts at colonization begin, the brutal change in atmosphere devastates them.But some survived, and Bill, is on a top secret mission to track them down Because the new human populati
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I loved it.The story is written from several points of view, both on Earth and Exilon 5, and personally I loved these sneak peaks into a not too distant future each character giving their unique flavour and adding to the big picture.The characters were believable, each with their own distinct personality driven by their goals for the future or demons of the past or present.It pleased me that even though halfway into the novel I had guessed some of the plot, that in the end parts of it still surprised me So I got to feel smart AND be taken by surprise simultaneously, yay.My only complaint is the number of missing words and occasional grammatical errors, but I m willing to overlook that for the sake of the quality of the story as well as knowing that it comes from an indie author.This first book covers the world building, back story, and introduces the main players all building up to
This was a really good book A great break from all the young adult novels that I have been reading lately It was written well and the book kept me intrigued the whole time I think because I have read George R.R Martin s Song of Ice and Fire series I was able to follow all the different point of views and characters a lot easier All the characters added something different to the story and I loved how it was starting to all tie together towards the end That was done well especially with the many different characters s we were following The one con to the book is that end was too abrupt I was confused at the end It didn t seem to fit the rest of the book but otherwise it was a good read Can t wait until I can read the next one I am excit
I enjoyed the storybut the writing execution wasn t there for me I m interested enough to continue with the trilogy I hope that now that one story is under her belt, Ms Green will develop a bit as a writer I noticed that even as the 1st book progressed the writing got better It was, however, rough for the 1st half of the book There needed to b
Check out my blog to see Reviews of Books and Movies as well as Recipes and DIY projectsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review Becoming Human the 1st book in the Exilon 5 Trilogy is written by Eliza Green Admittedly I was surprised that this was written by a woman, from the first 1 3 of the book, I had the feeling that it was written by a man Considering that the story is told predominantly through the eyes of men, I must commend Eliza on capturing the essence of man in storytelling views Becoming Human is based in the year 2163 when Earth is overpopulated and polluted to the point that the sun is no longer visible in the sky and the temperatures have dropped A planet named Exilon 5 has been terraformed and has replicated 5 major cities that people have started being transported to However, the race that was on Exilon 5 before the terraforming process were not completely annihilated and have continued to thrive under the surface Eliza does a great job of combining many fears and speculations into her futuristic novel Everyone has an ID chip embedded in their thumb that is used for everything from signatures to building entry Overcrowding has reached the point that bodies of water have been filled in to create housing Medical advances allow people to live well into their 100s, reaching 175
Very interesting and quick paced The POV switches did get slightly annoying at times, but there were not too many of them and they all came together except for the one with the air control guy, whose name I have forgotten after twenty minutes.The second half was much better than the first There are still quite a lot of loose ends, but there are two books so we shall see how they tie up.The corrupt government was nothing really new It w
