I’ve read Illuminae in about four days (less than that). That goes to show it was a pleasant read.
This is a science fiction book where a planet is attacked by a corporation called BeiTech, in the year of 2575. Kady and Ezra end up fighting for their lives on an evacuating fleet. There’s much more to it but I’ll leave it for you to read the rest!
I especially liked that this book grabbed me so much from the beginning. It’s one of those books where we do not want to stop reading because we want to know what’s going to happen next. However, this also implies that what is happening at that moment is not extremely captivating.
It is interesting that the story is presented to us through documents rather than a personal narration. Sometimes the documents appear to be too subjective in my opinion, especially when it comes to the transcription of images or the nucleus of the AI. This has an explanation, but even so, it removed some of the charm of this type of presentation.
I may read the other books in the series, even though it is not a priority. Anyway, I give this book 4 stars because I think it is recommendable to those who like these genres (science fiction and young adult), although they are genres in which my knowledge is very limited.
