I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Justin Cronin is the New York Times bestselling author of The Passage, The Twelve, The City of Mirrors, Mary and O’Neil (which won the PEN/Hemingway Award and the Stephen Crane Prize), and The Summer Guest. Other honors for his writing include a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Whiting Writers’ Award. A Distinguished Faculty Fellow at Rice University, he divides his time between Houston, Texas, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
“And just like that, it’s done.”
Proctor lives on the beautiful island of Prospera, where things are almost perfect. He enjoys his job, even if it’s slowly draining him. When he starts dreaming, he realizes there is more to his story.
This was a weird book. But I liked it. The story flowed well, and I found the plot to be unique. This would make a great series if done correctly.
I enjoyed the characters and found them well-developed. Proctor was relatable, and I enjoyed his humor. I liked Thea and her confidence.
There were several well-placed twists throughout this book. The seamless way the story developed, flipped and continued was fantastic.
