Review: The Well's End
Book 1 in a new series?
AUTHOR: Seth Fishman
PUBLISHED: February 25th, 2014
GENRE: Er...Sci-Fi I think..., kind of mystery
PREMISE: A girl's life is turned upside down when her school is put under guard by soldiers when the adults start rapidly aging.
MY REVIEW: This was...an interesting read. It starts off strangely and honestly...ends strangely. I don't really know what to call it either. Is it dystopian, sci-fi, what? I think it could have been more focused sometimes. For instance there are a couple of scenes in the beginning that were totally not necessary. Actually, the romance between the main character and the new guy wasn't even needed because the stuff going on was interesting enough without that.
Character wise...it was okay. The book seemed more focused on the stuff going on then on characters but I will give the author credit because he did try.
There are a few ups and downs that are typical of a first novel. But all in all it was a good book. It doesn't look like a sequel has been announced yet...but with that ending...there kind of needs to be one because it left in a rather awkward place.
WHO SHOULD READ: Um...no idea really, Dystopian fans I guess...
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five wells
