Rebel Seoul is a gripping science fiction novel about a guy who learns what it means to fight for what he believes in. After he was abandoned by his rebel father, ex-gang member Lee Jaewon is an 18-year-old living a war-torn “neo Korea” that promises a better unified life. He is training to be a pilot and gets an opportunity to make a name for himself. In the process he learns about himself, falls in love with his partner, Tera, and begins to question whether he is working for the “right” side. As rebellion looms, he must choose where he stands and how far he is willing to go for his nation.
This is a great book. It is well written, flows easily, and combines the best of Korean dramas, science fiction, and anime. All the characters make an impact, and the relationships among them are complex and rich. The plot is complex and delves deeply into the challenges of human interactions. This book is definitely not a book for younger teens, so I recommend it for those 15 and older. It has an Orwellian, 1984 feel to it, and fans of dystopian fiction will get much out of it. You will have a hard time putting this one down.
