"A relentlessly fast-paced, intriguing, expertly-written tale that leaves you breathless and satisfied, yet wanting more." (James Dashner, New York Times best-selling author of the Maze Runner series)
"Absolutely un-put-downable, more exciting than an Xbox and roller coaster combined." (Kirkus)
"If you're a fan of The Maze Runner and Alex Rider, you might want to pick up SYLO... A fast-paced read and a huge cliffhanger." (EW.com)
I always really enjoy DJ MacHale's books. Great performance by the narrator, and quite a twist for the end of the story. If you've read the other two books in the series, Sylo and Storm, then you need to read this one. If you haven't read any of DJ MacHale's other books but enjoy teen sci-fi that isn't filled with a ton of plot conveniences, his books (Sylo series or his previous Pendragon series) are worth the read/listen!
It's up there...but isn't in my top 10.
I love the characters in all 3 of the Sylo books. They were complex and developed. I also really liked the plot twists.
I really didn't like how he just said that none of the business leaders were interestd in developing alternative sustainable energy because it wasn't cost effective. It implies that capitalism is incompatible with taking care of the Earth. It is a very flawed point of view. In the last 10-15 years, we've seen many entrepreneurs created businesses based on using renewable resources. From making solar panels and electric cars to making bicycles out of sustainable resources (i.e. bamboo).
I read/listened through this 3 books like it was water! Amazing storyline accompanied by a great narrator. I'm a huge fan of D.J. so my review is highly biases but even still.. I can bet you can't guess the ending of his stories and you are always up for an amazing adventure along the way. I love how we get to truly see Tucker and his friends grow as individuals and together. Its crazy to think these are some random kids who just HAPPEN to be put in these situations but.. I think thats what adds that spice. We can relate somewhat to the choices they make because. . . if that had been us. . well. . how differently would we do things. I am a huge fan of the villain as in..you can understand his view point and actions. You can question yourself as to if you were in his shoes...on his side of the playing field ... wouldn't you agree with him? (that could be just me) ANYWAYYYY An amazing trilogy again. Hope you guys enjoyed it as muh as I did. Hobey-ho ♡
