When I saw the comparisons of Black Mirror, and X-Files, I had to jump on checking out this book. I am a fan of both shows. X-Files big time. My dad and I used to faithfully watch this show and have seen all of the movies that were made as well. Back to the book. So, I did see elements of Black Mirror and X-Files in this book which I was pleased with. One thing that I did want to mention is the book cover. It was giving me the movie District 9 vibes.
When it came to the overall story through, I felt like it did not really pick up for me until midway of Part Three. This is about the halfway point of the book. Up until this point, the story was more of a slow tease. When I got to Part Three is when the story really picked up and moved along at a faster pace. The fear is real.
Lastly, I never formed a strong connection to any of the characters. So, I did find myself not as emotionally invested in the book. Yet, there was still enough good elements I liked about this book that I would read another by Mr. Bellec.
