To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In the interest of full disclosure, I bought this book because I know the author, and I bought it even though I typically would not be interested in reading something where cyborgs(!) are a central feature. Having said that, I truly enjoyed this book. The protagonists are well developed and compelling enough to keep you reading the book just to learn their fate. And, the antagonists are so constantly threatening they leave you upset through most of the book. Nate began writing this book when he was 16 and I think it is extremely well done. He even leaves the possibility of a sequel. The author, Nate, is older now, recently graduating from BIOLA University with a degree in film. For me, one of the best reasons for reading the book is that, someday in the future, I'll be able to say, "Oh, yeah... I knew Nate Johnson when he was just starting out."
Bought several copies to give as gifts, because I knew I was not going to want to part with my copy. Nathan is masterful story teller that won't disappoint. I hope to be sitting in the theaters soon to see this story come to life on the big screen! Edgy. Realistic. Heartpumping. Relatable. Thrilling!
