Nutty adult chay
So yeah, most people would be in doubt of her sanity.Then it is up to him to buy her a present and apologize.I think the author was going for quirky and unique but ended up at annoying, judgemental and almost psychotic.As an example (don't worry not really spoilers): the second time she meets the male protagonist to see if she can trust him she drives them off a cliff into the water.Really great story It’s well written and thought out and gets you engrossed in the world and the characters. I thought the book was dull, with a lot of improbable coincidences and no real action to speak of.I definitely recommend this to all readers it will keep you on the edge of your seat. For the most part the characters are likeable except for the female protagonist. His greatest concern was making the high school football, until an odd girl moves in next store, a girl whose secrets threaten not only his existence but the existence of everyone on the planet. Tom Upton's skill for storytelling are so good, once may not be enough. The story doesn't cop out into cliché sci-fi territory, but dares to tell a very human science-fiction without leaving out the fantastic... I loved the characters, especially Eliza, who is nutty and very loveable. I read the book twice and marvelled at the story as much the second time as the first. Can be slightly confusing for some readers, nonetheless, everything is well explained by the loveable characters. I couldn’t go more than a page without shaking my head at something one of them said or did, usually laughing as well. I will toss this out, just as a teaser- the giant “cockroaches” were a bit over the top, but they play so little part in the overall story that it just made for an interesting interlude! This book left me feeling truly happy, a big smile on my face, like I had just completed some grand adventure! A well-told tale, written in an engaging, refreshing style.
This would not be worth purchasing...apparently Tom Upton doesn't have an editor. There were so many spelling and grammatical errors! As an example (don't worry not really spoilers): the second time she meets the male protagonist to see if she can trust him she drives them off a cliff into the water.
It was weird, quirky, totally out there, and very unusual from any other fantasy book that I have read.
Needless to say, Tom Upton is another author to look forward to in the world of science fiction. Sci - fi at its best This book kept you guessing what would happen next.
