Holy moly! Illuminae is one of the most unique and best books I’ve read this year. I’ve never come across a book half as cool as this one. Upon starting the first page, I was skeptical with how this story would be pulled off. If you haven’t read or heard about it, the book is told through emails, texts, etc. how on earth world the authors pull this off? Have no fear, they pulled it off and then some. Kady has just broken up with her boyfriend, Ezra, when the planet gets invaded. As we delve deeper into the story, the more sinister and dramatic things get. I think it’s safe to say the authors have ruined me. I couldn’t pick up a book after reading this space opera that will appeal to all sci-fi fans alike.
Need a story that isn’t all about a girl crying for a boy? Look no further. Here we have a string and independent heroine that could put even Katniss to shame. Need a book that has tons of action from page one? Wow, are you in for a surprise! There wasn’t a dull moment to be found in the wonderful pages of the story. I want more. Repeat it with me, I want more! Readers, don’t miss out on the epic book and do yourself a favor and get the hardback. The book is gorgeous, and I don’t think the digital version will do it justice.
