really liked it
Read from April 09 to June 16, 2012

Partials was an entertaining read. Plenty of action from start to finish, plenty of political intrigue, conspiracies, and sciency medical stuff, and all set in a fascinating post apocalyptic world. But I just wasnt able to connect with any of the characters. The final act had some big twists and turns, and has me genuinely excited about book 2.

29.0% "Part 1 was solid. Love the setting and the story is shaping up nicely. I dont like Kira very much at the moment, she is very childish hiding behind a noble exterior and I find her decisions/tantrums frustrating" 2 comments

68.0% "Cool ideas, plenty of intrigue, just not getting into the characters as much as I want to be. Maybe the target audience (young adults) will love it, but im not finding it nearly as fascinating as the John Cleaver books ( maybe that says more about me than I want to admit to... )"

75.0% "Ok into part three and the plot is really to pick up again, probably because annoying Kira doesnt have time to dwell on her annoying thoughts. She has a lot of great qualities you want to see in a main character (courage, determination, problem solving intelligence) but its like Wells is trying a little too hard to convince us that she is a teenage girl"

Tim Marquitz I know you're barely into it, but how does it compare to the John Cleaver books?

Ryan Lawler Well its 3rd person focusing on a 17ish year old girl ptrying to survive in a post apocalyptic world where an engineered virus prevents people from reproducing. So the world is more dreary, everyone is tired, but this young girl is still enthusiastic about her chances of saving the world. Reads like a YA
