The book starts off okay, with some funny and quite recognisable social media distraction moments which most of us experience from time to time. Yet the book then develops into something a lot less believable, with futuristic features such as self-driving cars suddenly popping up without prior lead into which time in the (obvious) future the book is set in. The lead character then changes from a timid worker bee into a bit of an extremist almost overnight without any real trigger. 3-stars for a book which had potential, but was rushed towards the end with little depth and a forced cliff-hanger. I won't be rushing out to read the sequel, but hope the writer progresses and improves as there is potential in his style.
A quick and enjoyable read. it was easy to think it's from an author with a longer list of releases given how quickly he pulls you into a believable apocalyptic alternative world. gave me food for thought about my own device addictions. well done for making me feel disappointed with myself! ;) It must be a topic that is popular at the moment but i felt the author had a good honest and mainly original take on it. The ending did come up abruptly but it left me wanting to know more of Lucy's story. fortunately its a series so i'm onto the next one.
