Swipe

Logan Langly is just months away from his 13th birthday and the biggest day of his life - the day he will finally be marked. The mark lets people get jobs, use public transportation, or even buy concert tickets. Becoming marked means becoming free - or so he is told. Five years ago when Logan's sister went to get her mark, she never came back. Now Logan can't shake the feeling he's being watched.... And then he finds the wire.

    "Not for Adults"
    What disappointed you about Swipe?

    This book was written for a tween audience. I failed to notice that fact when making my first purchase on Audible. My twelve year old might enjoy the story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Evan Angler again?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing, did fine.

    "Don't bother"

    The scathing review I wrote immediately after finishing Swipe has mysteriously disappeared.
    Now time has passed, my ire has cooled and I’m little more than indifferent to this disappointing novel.

    I’m not going to make any excuses for it though – it was poorly plotted, weakly characterised and worst of all, it was gave no resolution to the story it sorta-kinda-maybe started to hint at…

    Maybe it was aimed at more of a pre-teen audience and they would be a little more lenient on the clinched plot and lack of character development.

    The cliff-hanger ending though is unforgivable in my eyes. It wasn’t even a decent edge-of-your-seater that gave us a game changer and left us wanting more.
    It just, um, stopped.

    Honestly, in a hard copy of the book I wouldn’t be surprised if the final word was dragged down the page because the manuscript had been tore out of the printer.
    Worst of all, its stopped before the overarching plot actually got going! I’ve never seen such a thing!

    It is clear something in this bleak future society isn’t right (I’m quite certain it’s obvious what is going on but I am an older reader with a lot of dystopian fiction under my belt) but the main characters haven’t even begun to figure things out yet. Heck, they barely know something is even amiss yet!

    That means there has been NO progress in this book towards Logan goal of understanding the issues and mysteries surrounding society’s ‘mark’ program.

    I consider it a slap in the face when I’m tricked into reading a book designed to start off a trilogy (hey authors, instead of demanding we read a mediocre trilogy by dragging out a thing plot, try writing one book so good that it makes us WANT more okay?)

    For that reason, as well as many major plot and character issues, I strongly do NOT recommend Swipe or the series.
