bookshelves: let-down
Read from August 11 to 12, 2011

I'd actually give this 3.5 stars but I can't :(

So I'm hoping that this becomes a series or it at least has a sequel because everything just seemed rushed. I'd like to know more about Returners, about Clair, and see if the immigrant "problem" ever gets resolved. If there is only one book....well then I would be very disappointed.

Another thing that bugged me is the way that Hodge speaks. Every freaking paragraph starts out with a short sentence...then a shorter one immediately after. And I get it, A lot of us think that way (thoughts just popping into our head with no varied "sentence length") but after a while of this I got really annoyed. Cmon, use the word "and" for once, or "so."

There. I'm done with my rant.

Ashley hm. You seemed to have liked it more than I have, but I totally agree with you on the short sentence thing.
