New York 2140

AGE RATING: 14+

TEEN RATING: 3.9/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: An incredibly complex and intricate story line which at times was astonishing to read because of the sheer scale and complexity of the plot. However the same intricacy which at times made the novel such a breathtaking read, was also ironically it’s downfall at times, due to the length of time the plot took to develop and mature. Overall a great read, however long it may have been at times. Continue reading New York 2140

Skyward

AGE RATING: 14+

TEEN RATING: 5.1/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: I literally don’t know how I will possible survive the months until October of 2019, when ‘Starsight’, the prequel to Skyward, is set to be released. I literally can’t wait. Absolutely sensational work from Sanderson, especially when in comparison with his previous novels. Sanderson consistently smashes any notion of a level for an incredible novel and sets the bar higher than previously even thought possible. Continue reading Skyward

Caliban’s War

AGE RATING: 14+

TEEN RATING: 4.9/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: Apart from some broad similarities between Leviathan Wakes and Caliban’s War, the book itself is an incredible read of it’s own accord. The only thing standing between it and a top rating, being those same similarities. There isn’t much more I can say, other than, another breathtaking book from Corey. Continue reading Caliban’s War

Killer T

AGE RATING: 15+

TEEN RATING: 3.8/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: Killer T starts off brilliantly, with a stunning story, perfectly set up to escalate into an insane plot. However, for whatever reason, Muchamore decided to write Killer T in a slightly ‘disjointed’ manner. Bounding forward in time, on occasion, meaning we lose track of what’s going on in the book and the book’s flow. Rather than being about it’s characters’ journey, Killer T is more about the concept of Gene editing. Great idea, however in my opinion, lacking slightly in it’s implementation.

Ender’s Game

AGE RATING: 13+

TEEN RATING: 4.8/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: An incredibly written story, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. Each to keep us guessing, at where the final destination may actually be in the grand scheme of things. If written differently Ender’s Game could easily have become incredibly boring and an easily forgettable story. Fortunately for us, however, Orson’s writing technique and his ability to leave us all in the dark makes Ender’s Game and sensational read. Leaving you lost for words, deep in thought and wishing for more… Continue reading Ender’s Game
