Picked this up for free, not expecting much, but it's after 1 am and I just have to write a quick review. I'm not young, by any stretch of the imagination, but I thoroughly enjoyed this YA Sci Fi book. The plot is intriguing and suspenseful, the writing is excellent and it seems surprisingly believable. There's enough description, without too much, and the character development is very well done. Not sure if I'll buy the rest of the series, but I'm seriously considering it. All in all, Fluorescence is a great start to the series and it seems to easily cross age, gender and interest lines. Even those (like me) who are rarely interested in Sci Fi should give this book a read.
This book is clean, containing nothing more than kisses and a little mild profanity. Don't take that to mean it's boring though. This is a very well written book!
The main problem I had with this book was the age of the characters. It was difficult for me to picture them as fourteen and fifteen because they felt older. Reading the heavy make out scene felt weird thinking they were so young. Yes, I am aware that fourteen-year-old make out but that doesn't mean I want to read about it. Maybe because I remember being an awkward fourteen-year-old with frizzy hair and braces, I was so not attractive.
I did like Alice and Brian together though. I thought they were cute even though their relationship moved kind of fast at first. I loved Alice's friendship with Sam too. I wished there was a little more of Sam because she was entertaining to read.
The Saviors were impatient jerks, though. I mean that ending made me cringe because I thought it was a little ridiculous. It didn't stop me from immediately buying the second book, though.
The book himself is more about fluorescence, on how this powers are living inside these teenagers. Without them even noticed them. Somehow the Aliens have chosen them with this DNA (fluorescence) with different powers. To know more about this powers, you have to read this series. Secrets, happy couples, headache and more happens here. The writing styles isn’t boring, actually it was very entertaining for me. What I love the most was on how Brian was so dedicated to love Alice. Even though with the age restriction. I really wasn’t expecting the last part on the book.
It was really shocking. Totally let me hanging on a cliff. I was gasping the entire time reading it. Probably I will get my sister into reading this stories about aliens. The more secrets I read, the more I wanted to read.
I listened to the audiobook and was left wanting more when I finally heard the words “The End”. Speaking of the audiobook, this one was read by the author. That can be a mixed bag. Sure, the author knows the story and characters better than some random narrator, but narrators are usually actors who can bring the characters to life more successfully. Well, in this case I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the acting by the author. She really brought the characters to life with not only unique voices, but lots of nuance. And her delivery had a lot of emotion, never losing her energy. The fast paced scenes were frantic and helped you experience the stress the characters were under.
A good story and a good delivery make this one a winner.
I am so ready for Volume II Contagious!
