Book Review: Unearthed
Unearthed Book 1
AUTHORS: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
PUBLISHED: January 9th, 2018
GENRE: Science Fiction
PREMISE: Two people get thrown together on an adventure in space...
MY REVIEW: I have...mixed feelings about this book. There's nothing really wrong with it. It is very much what it advertises: a space adventure with a dash of romance. It's just...there's not much difference between this and the author's other series, These Broken Stars.
It has the same type of plot: boy and girl on opposite sides of a conflict meet. Boy and girl wind up in life and death survival situation. Boy and girl fall for each other by the end. I honestly had a lot of deja vu while reading this. But it does have a slight difference in the end. It looks like the next book will not go into different characters, so it does look like we'll get a divergence of plot in the next one.
The book did do a satisfactory job of telling the story. There was decent character development, there was a decent plot. I will probably pick up the next book. I just can't ignore how similar this is to stuff the authors have written before.
WHO SHOULD READ: These Broken Stars fans, sci-fi fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five good, but familiar stories
