I’ve been reading it and so far it’s pretty good. It’s hard to remember that all the stories in this book are real with how dang sad they are. The first story is about the wife of a fireman who went to the reactor without warning of the radiation. and all the others I’ve read so far are snippets and comments from survivors and those who chose to stay in Chernobyl .
Yes, the typo is intentional. REAMDE by Neal Stephenson is a story that begins with a computer virus, but very quickly spirals out into a series of events much larger than any of the characters could have predicted. Richard, the creator of popular video game T’Rain, finds his greatest work terrorized by a group of Chinese hackers ransoming player’s data. Zulu and her boyfriend, Peter, find themselves in over their heads when Peter makes a stupid decision. Meanwhile, Russian gangsters who have also found themselves victims of REAMDE make their move to hunt down its maker.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is a well known novel that follows a young girl living in Germany during World War II. I have not made it very far into the book, but so far I am enjoying it. It is very well written with characters that come to life. Not much has happened in the part I have read so far, but I am enjoying getting hooked into the book and learning about the characters.
Dawn by Octavia Butler is a story set in a post- apocalyptic world where a nuclear war has nearly wiped out humanity. The few remaining survivors are approached by an alien race called the Oankali. The Protagonist of the story, Lilith Lyapo discovers a new world for her self and the rest of man-kind. This story illustrates a magical and unimaginable world through Butlers amazing storytelling.throughout the course of the story. This story contains complex and multi-dimensional characters.
I have just started reading this novel, yet I can already tell it is going to be good. Aside from it being a classic and well renowned book, the story is very intruding and as long as you can get past the somewhat old writing style, I think it is well worth the read.
In case you are unfamiliar, the book is about the group of English school boys who have just survived a plane crash. This crash leaves them stranded on an island, where they attempt to create a democratic society amongst themselves. This all works out at first, but what happens by the end is a violent and chaotic tale about how laws and rules can come crashing down very quickly without proper morals or intentions.
The Loop, by Ben Oliver, takes place in the future where one man and the government control everything about people’s lives. The book follows a 16 year-old named Luka Kane who’s been wrongly imprisoned in a nightmarish prison, called the loop, where the prisoners are tested on horrible experiments, brutally tortured, and in solitude everyday until they die. But shortly after being in the loop for two years, things begin to change, and the daily routine of the prisoners begin to change.
Where I’m at in the book right now, one of Luka’s friends, Wren, who is a security guard, goes crazy while trying to set him, plus a bunch of other cellmates, free. Trying to kill them for no reason at all. Luka manages to contain her in a cell and escapes from the prison into the city. But, life in the city isn’t any better, it’s actually worse. Almost everyone in the city has gone crazy, as well, with the same thing that Wren has mysteriously gotten. So, Luka goes back to the Loop to form a team in order to find out what’s happening to everyone.
The story is definitely starting to amp up the action. I would highly recommend reading this book.
Go Ask Alice (anonymous author) follows the story of 15 year old girl named Alice who struggles with reoccurring drug abuse. This book shows her normal day to day life in the form of a diary entry which later describes how she copes with drug addiction and it illuminates the hard times that she faces. In the beginning of the book she talks about her body insecurities and her struggles that she experiences throughout her teen years. I think that Alice is a very complex character because in some chapters/days she wrote in her diary, she would talk about how good life is and how she is extremely happy to be alive. Then she also sometimes talks about how she hates her life and talks about how she is struggling with her mental health. So far, I would definitely recommend this book because it gives a new perspective no one has ever seen before, her life.

So far in the book, I have still not found out why the main character, Luka, was put into the loop in the first place. What makes the book so compelling is that now the story is starting to progress more and the everyday activities that the inmates do in the loop are disrupted. All the inmates are sent to a new area that little is known about. But thanks to a guard that Luka is friends with, we learn that it has made the inmates going inside of it crazy. The author builds suspense by slowly giving the reader little details about the loop and the outside world to not only progress the story, but to keep the reader engaged in the story as well. The most complex character in the story, right now, is Tyco Roth. Every day since Luka has been locked in the loop he says that he is going to kill him. They have never met before their time in the loop and Tyco has been saying it for, seemingly, no reason. But when the inmates are about to go into the new area, instead of just yelling about killing him, he asks Luka what he thinks is going to happen to them. Confusing the reader and building even more suspense about the new place.
Overall, I am really investing into this book and would highly recommend it if you are into the sci-fi genre.
I’ve been reading the Hitchhiker’s Guide for the last few weeks, about up to page 155, and it is a comedy book without a doubt, there are a few jokes I don’t understand due to the characters being British and the author being British but other than that the book has been hilarious. So far the earth has been blown up to construct a galactic super-highway, the president of the galaxy stole the fastest ship in the galaxy, and two nuclear missiles have been turned into a sentient pot of petunias and a blue whale. The book is awesome and I’d recommend it 100%.
Today, Tonight, Tomorrow is a story about a girl named Rowan Roth and it’s her last day of senior year and during the three years of high school she has tried to win against her other classmate Neil McNair after losing against him in freshman year for a school wide contest.
After three years she has finally finished senior year and while she thinks everything is going good for she gets into a car accident with her ex-boyfriend and in the process spills coffee on her dress that she wore for the the announcements for valedictorian which while on stage she doesn’t end up getting valedictorian sadly. Overall this a very good book so far and I feel actually bad for Rowan hopefully things look up for her but anyways this book is definitely worthwhile, see you next time my little lovelies xoxo
The Loop By Ben Oliver is a dystopian novel set in a future where the world is united under one government. The main character, Luka Kane, is an inmate in an AI-run solitary confinement prison called the Loop. Each and every day is the same as the last, and Luka has been there for years.
A change finally comes when the government mandated rain fails to fall, which starts a chain of events that causes the end of Luka’s monotony.
The action comes fairly quickly in this book, and hooks the reader from the very start. Definitely worth a read.
UPDATE: I have since finished the book! After getting to see the end, I once again recommend reading The Loop. The closer I got to the conclusion, the more on the edge of my seat I felt, and I was not disappointed. A thrilling end to an excellent book.
