The Loop, by Ben Oliver, takes place in the future where 1 man and the government control everything about people’s lives and even the environment. The book follows a 16 year-old named Luka Kane who’s been wrongly imprisoned in a nightmarish prison where the prisoners are tested on horrible experiments, brutally tortured, and in solitude everyday until they die.
So far, I have been really invested into this book because of the extreme setting that the main character lives in and it’s interesting how he is able to survive and keep going, even though he has been stuck in there for 2 years. I like how the author doesn’t tell the reader why Luka was falsely imprisoned in the first place, and instead takes time to introduce the setting and all the characters.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book if you are into the sci-fi genre.
