What an intriguing yet chilling premise! I could easily place myself in the position of being deprived of everything which we take for granted. Science Fiction devotees will love this story from P.R Castle. What a fantastic imagination!
Julie (Bookish.Intoxication)
Aim is incredibly easy to read, from the first page you are thrown into this futuristic, whitewashed, technologically advanced, laboratory where you meet A and B.

To say this book is intense is an understatement, for the first half of the book, the twins are living in such a heightened state of awareness that it leaps from the page and drags you in to it too.

I did struggle with the amount of nothing that went on in the first half of the book. I understand it is important to build the plot and l

The Subjects’ Aim is a well written and well-paced Science Fiction Novel. The plot is an intriguing concept, which offers two perspectives through the two main characters. Unfortunately, I was unable to empathise with these characters - which for me is a huge thing as a reader – and therefore could not fully engage with the story.
It was about half way through the book that I felt the novel took on a new level, with the introduction of new characters and I found myself thinking more about these c

Easy and enjoyable read, jam packed with adventure.
I really enjoyed reading Aim, I initially picked it up because I was looking for something to read during my commute to work and it was perfect. The story line is gripping and suspenseful and the writer's imagination meant I was constantly trying to make the connections myself as to what would happen next (however was always pleasantly surprised!). I thought it was really interesting how the book explores the concept of "forgive and forget" vs r

Loved the duality and conflict throughout. The gripping story line and excellent science fiction keep you hooked from start to finish. Highly recommend this book and will keep an eye out for the next book in this series.

Thought it was great. It was pacy, enjoyable and clean. There's a real love of science in this book, apparently the first of three, and her characters stay to true to that. I read this as an adult, but it's definitely suitable for YA. The language and interaction between characters is safe. I'd actually love to see it as a graphic novel.

Anyway, two sisters (Subject A and Subject B) have been kept in a lab their whole lives by some weird Professor. Subject B decides it's time to breakout, but not

I was emotionally invested in this book by the end of the first chapter, and that investment didn't dwindle as I read on. Well written and easy to read, yet with a story line that was quite complex. I loved it! I read it in two sittings, only putting it down in the middle because it was 2am and my eyes were falling out of my head! What I loved, was how although the story had a strong vein of the scientific, it was told from the perspective of emotion, and almost had a spirituality about it as we ...more

The Subjects Aim is one those books that I’m having a hard time reviewing because I honestly don’t know what to say except for the usual thing you would normally read in most book reviews – the story, the characters, the ending.

Well, since I can’t manage to make my brain work today, I’ll just stick to the usual then, *wink.

The story
I’m never a fan of Science Fiction although I’ve read some that I really liked in the past. I guess the big part of the r

Aim - The Subjects’ Part 1

Most of us are aware of animal testing. Products tested on animals, too often done inhumanely, and experiments done in the name of science. Imagine being one of these animals, caged and subjected to grueling trials and tests, operated on and left with harsh side effects. For twins Subject A and Subject B, this is the only life they have known. Their home, the Lab, is like a cage. The Professor, the only other person they know besides themselves, their caretaker and mast

Talk about an emotional and different read. Two sisters who have lived their entire life in an experimental lab run by a mad professor. They were so different in how they felt and what they could experience. One understood human nature and the other could melt into water. The escape from the lab and have to learn to deal with darkness, revenge, trust, etc. and lots of other things. This is the first book in the Subjects Trilogy and certainly starts the series off on a high note. Well written wit ...more

I sit in front of the computer reflecting on this amazing story. It is strange how a piece of literature can be a mirror to your past experiences. The relations of emotional turmoil the two main characters, especially Subject B, can just hit the right nerve that takes you back to a time of pain and hurt but also of hope and triumph. This book is like a second birth for me, seeing that not only am I over past experiences but also can reflect on how they build my life. I, thank you, P. R Castle, f ...more

This book was quite enjoyable and I am interested to know what happens next.
The only critical comment I would give was just that there were times when there were too many questions asked and they sounded a bit too childish and I feel that they could have been implied instead of directly asked.
Otherwise, I really enjoyed reading it.

Originally published on my blog here!
To me, Aim was an easy to read YA sci-fi. I found that the story itself was paced nicely, where it was slow to start, and built up the world well.

I enjoyed how characters Subject A and Subject B discover the world around them is more complex than what has been taught to them via 'lessons' that the Professor gave them. I also loved how there was differences in personality between A and B, which affects how they react and interact with others they come across.

Lab Rats or More?

This was a deep book which made the readers question reality. The story was puzzling and I wanted the same questions answered that A and B did. I cannot wait to get some of the answers to the enigmas that are A and B. This was a horror story that will haunt the reader for a long time.
