1. Sapphique (Incarceron #2) by Catherine Fisher
Second book, starts where the first left off. Most of this book takes place outside of the prison. And just like the first book, I felt that the story was fine, moved at a fast pace when the story was set in the prison, but outside of the prison, the story drags. I think I felt like that because the prison is an interesting character itself, and raises many questions about how an AI might develop when left to itself.
2.3.4. Choas Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
I really enjoyed the first book, I thought it was well written and a really interesting idea. Everyone can hear everyone's, including animals thoughts. You can't keep a secret from anyone. The first book is about a secret that has been kept from the young main character and his journey to discover the truth. There is a scene that really tugs at the heart strings and brought a tear to my eye :( It was very sad since you can read what the character involved is thinking.
The final 2 books were actually disappointing. They were OK, wrapped up the problems from the first book, but I found them very predictable. Found myself knowing what was going to happen, pages before it did.
MaddAddam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood
I actually read these books when they originally came out, but wanted to re-read them since the third comes out in September and I wanted to refresh my memory. Dystopian books about a plague that has wiped out most of man kind. They are very heavy on environmental issues and the effect man has on the earth.
The books do jump around a lot, but I didn't find that confusing since you can clearly tell what is going on by the characters involved. They could be stand alone books, since they are about the same events but told by the perspective of different characters. There are characters that turn up in both and tie the books together, and you do learn more about the main characters if you read both.
I have found that Atwood is either one of those authors you like or hate. I really like her work, but completely understand when people say she can be a little wordy and go on and on if there is a point she is trying to make.
