here with links is Monica Hesse s debut novel, which was released in June 2013 Thanks to Easons for sending me this book for a review I did not know what to expect going into this book I had not heard any hype or read any other reviews before I read it and that made me evenexcited to read it and write my review I also really dislike the cover I don t picture the characters clothes in that way, neither do I picture the pods in that way When I first read the synopsis, I thought that the books romance would be rushed because of the action side of the plot taking over the novel This was not the case The plot if this book was interesting When I first started reading it I found myself thinking it was similar to Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans, but as I read on I realised that it was so much better Although the first 80 or so pages did not have me gripped to the book, I did enjoy the book The plot of this book was not totally drowned by the action I really liked this as the plot had many elements, such as mystery, suspense, thriller, romance, sci fi, and was not just solely wrote around the action side of the plot I thought the plot was a really interesting concept I also thought that the pacing of the plot was really good Just the right amount of plot twists paced evenly apart to keep the reader captivated I only wish someof the history of the program and Julian were explained.The characters of the book were well written I really enjoyed the gang of Fenns friends I loved their tight knit friendship and how they accepted Lona into their group I liked that the characters were not perfect Each character had their own flaw and this made the character feel a lotrealistic to the reader I also liked the character of Genvieve, who for me had the most depth and backstory At first she seemed to be a character I disliked but she really grew on my as the novel progressed Julian was also a character of many layers, an enigma really The stray children were also amazingly unique The romance side of the book was quite well done There were some bits I was unhappy with overall I did enjoy the way the relationship between Lona and Fenn came about Their relationship spawned from friendship, which is something I really enjoy in a novel The transition from friends tothan friends was subtle, slow and real It was really well written, although I sometimes felt it became the focus of the novel a little too often for my liking.The writing style of the novel was really good I loved Hesse s ability to create dimensional characters, each with their own flaws and unique traits.I also really thought that the book made the reader think about some serious things such as, What is the definition of Perfect or Normal or Average Why do we strive to be those things Is this the way the future could go Do we learn from doing or being taught And other things similar to this This book was really good if you re looking for a book that ll make you think The world and plot of the book was initially something I thought would be similar to another book, but Hesse took the idea and made it her own She really did take the idea and bring it to another level The sci fi element of the book was also just enough to make me want to geek out She also dealt with two, and sometimes three, character narrations in the story really well The transitions from each characters POV was smooth and easy Although this book did not receive a 5 star rating from me, I hope this is the first book in a series as I am so excited to see what happens next To be perfectly honest I only read this book for the cover Kristina brought it to my attention and I had to have it Isn t it cool It was actually quite a neat little story With pod people Sweet, innocent little pod people I just want to give them a hug Excpet for that one ginger with the twisted bloodlust But let s face it There s one of those in every crowd. The idea of Path is to provide a better life for children who would otherwise end up in foster care, by providing them with the perfect childhood In order to do this the Pathers have no previous memories, no identity that isn t Path, even their names are a way of categorising the children From that we can tell Lona was born December 15th and was designated to Sector 14 Quadrant 1, it does also make pronouncing some of the names tricky to pronounce, Ilyf and Czin for example Even with the la The idea of Path is to provide a better life for children who would otherwise end up in foster care, by providing them with the perfect childhood In order to do this the Pathers have no previous memories, no identity that isn t Path, even their names are a way of categorising the children From that we can tell Lona was born December 15th and was designated to Sector 14 Quadrant 1, it does also make pronouncing some of the names tricky to pronounce, Ilyf and Czin for example Even with the lack of background information I felt like I got to know Lona better than any other lead character in any book I ve read for a while Maybe because we re there while Lona discovers herself On the subject of characters, I loved Talia, a Path Staff member, and the outside Path perspective she gave to the book, she started off as a small character, but as things developed she became a key part in the plot.In the one hour off Path Lona becomes friends with Fenn, and when he leaves for Eighteens she really misses him, and starts to realise that she has an off Path identity, and that Julian the young boy who s life they all live virtually is not all there is in life When Fenn comes back for her, the two of them Stray from path with a few other friends, and it leads to a series of complex developments and twists that left me wondering where and how the book would come to an end.I found I could picture Path existing if technology was good enough, and I was intrigued by how outsiders reacted to Path, with pity and even envy Monica Hesse did a fantastic job of thinking of even the smallest details, like how difficult dealing with the busy places and contact with people would be for the Pathers, and how outsiders are happy to donate money to Path, but wouldn t take any of the children in themselves adding to the overall very realist and intriguing idea of Path It was great to also see how the Path had treated Julian, with thousands of children growing up on his memories from 50 years ago, and people treating him like a minor celebrity.Overall I found this to be a fantastic debut and I can t wait forof Monica s work in the future, so you d better keep writing Miss Hesse The twists and shocks kept me up late at night finishing it, and I thoroughly recommend this book, as a different twist in the dystopian genre And even though I think the book has finished in a perfect place, I almost want a sequel just to find outabout the lives of Fenn and Lona and the other Pathers before they had their memories wiped and their families left them behind The most productive features writer at the Washington Post s Style section and I should know somehow found time to also write this absorbing, sleek novel about a future where the answer to a surfeit of neglected abused abandoned children is to hook them up to a virtual reality perfect childhood represented by one boy s life Then some of them escape before their cut off date It s a great, suspenseful read, but also heartbreaking in parts.
