When given a copy of this book, I didn’t know what to expect. After reading the prologue, I thought that it sounded okay and was average, but I was wrong.
Like every great novel, the first chapter starts off a bit slow, but then things picked up quickly. I have read many novels, but this one has such a deep connection to real-life emotions. Each character has their own unique personality and faces their own struggles and issues while fighting for their survival. I can’t stress how connected I felt to some of the characters on an emotional level.
The main character is not your typical oblivious main character and takes action like any normal teenager would, which is something I enjoyed reading about. When confronted with problems, he isn’t overpowered and immediately able to solve the issue, it’s his use of brains and wits that help him overcome the problems and his undying loyalty to his childhood best friend that keeps him fighting.
I found his struggles to be very relatable as a person and found myself connecting with this fictional character quite often. Overall, I would rate this novel a 9/10.
It also touches on the topics of suicide and self-harm/overcoming one’s issues, and its use of mystery had me on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading the novel. The artwork was amazing, some of the best I’ve seen in a novel, and the story was just as good.
I can’t wait for the release of volume 2, I have so many questions about the puzzle pieces and the mysterious laboratory and how he got there. I highly recommend it.
