Too simple. Lacking tech. Those are my two 2-word reviews for this two star book.
My longer review wouldn’t get much better. I enjoyed Maze Runner and it’s not fair to compare, but it’s inevitable.
The middle act proceeding to the final act was weak and repeating the same thing over and over.There was a very bad reveal at the end.
This book continues my love/hate relationship with YA. Either YA is really good, or the really bad. This one went south from my perspective because of poor use of tropes like the matrix, gamer culture, and AI.
I’ve read a lot of cyberpunk and Sci-Fi so I have higher expectations for technical plot lines. This line was too thin to hold together.
This was book 14/15 in 2016
