Book Review: Catching On Fire
veronica | I won Catching On Fire by Sue Knott from Goodreads as a first reads. I was intrigued by the premise of this novel and found it interesting enough to keep reading.
Rachel was born with “Glyphs” imprinted on her mind and thought she was the only one until one fateful night she meets Jim. They think what they share is actually a map on how to heal the world. Little did they know that they weren’t the only ones.
Knott has a potential best seller on her hands, with a bit more work on a clearer storyline and better prose. I believe the first chapter alone had the word “boobs” three times in one paragraph.
This technically isn’t a dystopian novel, it’s more on how to prevent a dystopian future.
The characters are engaging, but seem to lack depth. I believe with a better editor the second installment could be better. After all, this was a refreshing read.
The problem I had with this was more esthetics than anything else. They layout of the chapters was just odd and seemed a rather waste of space. Not even sure why it looked that way but it was distracting.
All in all, it was a nice break from the norm and worth picking up.
