Odyssey One (Odyssey One, #1) by Evan C. Currie

Odyssey One (Odyssey One, #1) by Evan C. Currie

1/5

Stopped reading after a couple of chapters. It's excruciable. Cliched, lazy, boring and self-contradictory. The most charitable thing I can say is that it might get better after I gave up (but I doubt it).

 

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

3/5

Depressing novel about a dead girl. It's very well written but left me a bit cold. Unhappy families may be unhappy in their own way but that doesn't necessarily make them interesting.

 

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

4/5

Not particularly into zombie fiction but this is great - different perspective, interesting plot and a stunning ending.
