Book Review: Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1) by Aimee Carter
Book: Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)
Author: Aimee Carter
Plot: This is a new World where you are judged based on your performance in a test. Depending upon the scores of the test, you are judged to be either worthy for the society or not. Worst is that you are to live with the score of this test etched on you for the rest of your lives but what if one person stands to fight against this system that values the scores more than the person it is etched on?
simple and interesting
There is no pleasantries and welcoming party for this book as the book starts right in the middle of the action and leaves the readers right in the middle of this fire without much explanations or background details and it is revealed to you as you walk through it gradually
While the narration and language acts as a perfect accomplice to the book, its the background details that i am yearning for.Considering that this is a dystopian novel, it is only fair for one to ask a bit more detail about the world that the book is set into.
The essential information is of course there but not enough to shut your curiosity satisfactorily. The story on the other hand moves real quick,jumps through hoops even without complicating much and taking you along smoothly. Even without much background details the story proved to be pretty effective and an interesting read for me.
I found the book to be really simple and quick and not indulging into so much technicalities and emotional vulnerabilities and this by my standards is a pretty good thing.
This is a dystopian novel that manages to tell you a solid story even without giving away much details about the dystopian world or character backgrounds. While this may prove a bit uncomfortable, the book still comes strong with a good core story that paces itself fast with enough twist and turns to keep you glued.
