All of the previous (7) reviews and ratings were positive, but once again proves that I should wait until there were more reviews in before using a precious credit. I disliked this book immensely! I still have an hour and a half left and will force myself to finish but I cannot see any way to redemption for this book.
If you like sci-fi you may like this book, I would compare it to "14" which was rated well by many but I also disliked.
Another slight comparison would be "Mr. Penubra's 24 hour bookstore" which I did not hate but did not think was all that great.
I like action books such as: Hurwitz 's "you're next"
I like fantasy such as: Game of thrones and wheel of time.
I like mystery and thriller such as: "Gone Girl gone" and the Dublin murder squad.
I even like some dystopian fantasy books such as: Hunger games
Basically, a team of environmentalist get shipwrecked and wake up on an island where horrific experiments on animals and humans are being performed, and you guessed it...the government sanctioned this at some point in the past. Now the island is being run by a rogue being.
The premise seems promising but there was very little investment in the characters from me, the story should be thought provoking but because I did not care much about the characters and their relationships I just cant wait for it to be over! A few reviews online said this should be a trilogy and maybe that would have helped with setting the scene and character development.
