it was amazing
bookshelves: aliens, dystopia, outer-space, science-fiction, amazing

This was an awesome sci-fi that discussed a lot of issues that left you thinking. For example, freedom and survival are big themes in the book and are expanded on with the character's actions and points of view. One thing I really like was getting to know the human's perspective alongside the alien's perspective. It's definitely a very interesting book and it was one that got me interesting in reading more science fiction for the sake of learning new things and thinking of things differently. I like these kinds of books because they open your mind to a new perspective that maybe you hadn't thought about before.

“There was no real comfort in being alone with her thoughts, her memories, but somehow the illusion of freedom lessened her despair.”
