The door opens, and Alish steps out of the lab for the first time ever …
Can she escape?
Outside, there’s nothing, nothing but a small herd of cows, and stretches and stretches of parched red desert in all directions …
She is still trapped.
Then a helicopter flies overhead …
Salvation at last or something more sinister?
Aim is the first book in the completed Subjects Trilogy, a young adult science fiction, set in NSW, Australia, about freedom and justice. If you like action packed adventures, psychological thrillers and mysteries then you will love Aim.
Reading so widely both local and international titles, there comes a time where you feel that you have read that concept before. It’s up to the author’s writing to win you over and sell you the book. Taking a chance on a new author is always a gamble, however I will never say no to a loveozya book.
Castle’s debut premise was intriguing, a set of twins whose entire world is controlled by a mysterious man . With X- men feels, the story starts of slow before starting into what seems an action packed adventure that is heavy on mind games. However there is personal but for me.
Once I dove in and had a chance to form an opinion about this book . I found myself not connecting to the book. Whilst the twins are obviously sheltered, it was weird how they had learnt about the real world from book and were able to quickly adapt given their background. It made for the relationships they formed as well, unrealistic.
I get where the author was trying to go but the writing didn’t sell me the story. I didn’t finish the book as, I couldn’t connect to the story or the characters. Therefore, I’m forming my opinion on the first 30% of the book that I read. It was a case of it didn’t work for me and unfortunately I had to stop after the book changed pace and setting.
Just because I had this experience with this book, means I speak for all readers. Who knows , someone else might have different thoughts!
