Dystopian horror. While this may seem redundant as a genre let me explain what makes this genre (and Tin Crickets) a little different. The best example I have to correlate to this is The Road by Cormac McCarthy (which I was unable to get through; I also bailed on the movie as it was far too horrifying for me). These are books where the reality is so harsh it's horrific. Because not all dystopian books are at this level. Think of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Station Eleven. These are all dyst ...more

*I received an ecopy of this book via BookSirens. This has not influenced my review.*

This is one of those books that I just felt drawn to. The cover, the title, the premise. But it's also one of those books for which the blurb is accurate and yet somehow not wholly accurate, so the story turned out to be different than I thought it would be. It was kind of a dystopian/horror combo, although I'm not someone who usually reads horror, so maybe others would disagree. It was essential

"If you tell someone what you mean, they wonder if you’re lying. If you make them guess, they don’t.” -Pop, Tin Crickets

Tin Crickets is not for the faint of heart–or stomach. It is the type of book that has your knuckles turning white and 100% of your focus because you truly do not know what to expect to happen next.

Goodreads and Amazon both say it has 510 pages, and I find that hard to believe because I started and finished it in the same day. If that is really true, that is the fastest I have

While the story itself is very interesting, and nothing is spoon-fed to the reader, the delivery of the story almost ruined it for me. First person narrated by a character I almost despised by the end of the book. The narrator used too many colloquialisms and slang to get a solid grasp on many things. And while he did show remorse for some of his bull-headed decisions throughout the story, I didn't see any redemption or growth in the character; he was somewhat vindicated a

The writing style and subject matter of this book typically fall outside the scope of my interest, but I've been branching out from my traditional pleasure reading to other genres in order to expand my horizons. Wise's book is engaging and unique (in my experience), and an enjoyable read. I was admittedly a bit disappointed at the ending, but not enough to cause me concern or to reduce my recommendation to anyone who wishes to read something along these lines.

Pick it up!

I couldn’t put this book down!

The characters in this story were real and full of heart, you can’t help finding a soft spot for each and every one of them. I don’t want to give spoilers but I found this story to be refreshingly different than any dystopian type book that I have read.
