My Review
This Book was a very hard read for me, Sci fi is one of my favorite genres and even thought I didn’t feel in love with it, this book is a very good representation of the genre.

The first few pages need serious editing, but once you past that, the plot is very original.

The problem I had with this book, was the amount of information that was being delivered, the technological aspects of the book overpowered the story itself. It was as if the main character was there just so we could see how technologically advanced the future is.

The premise of the book is very fresh; you can feel the devotion of the author and the amount of time he invested in it.

We get to see a future earth where flying cars and bots are the everyday thing; also the places are described in a very vivid but new futuristic way.

Bobbie is a well-developed character that has a very abnormal life due to the circumstances of her birth, what I didn’t like about her was the fact that she wastes a lot of time thinking and not a lot of it doing, she was a breeze of fresh air at some points on the story but still at times she was boring.

All in all it was an ok book for me, not because it’s a bad book it just wasn´t the ideal book for me, I rate it 3 stars cause it´s without a doubt the most creative book I’ve read on this subject but at the end I was left with a lot of unanswered questions.

Still if you love Sci fi and Futuristic novels this might be the one for you, check it out and let me know what you thought of it.
