Book Title: Reboot
Author: Amy Tintera
Genre: YA Sci-fi/Dystopian
This book is a page-turner. The story is fast-paced, gripping and action-packed. AND THE COVER. Just take a moment and admire the cover. It’s SO beautiful.
I love the character development of Wren. At first, being the least human reboot in HARC, she thought she had no emotion at all. She could not tolerate anyone who screams. She couldn’t cry. However, once Callum come into her life, she changes. It is him who notices Wren when she shows her emotion, and he is the only one who’s not afraid of her. She has found her human side.
The idea of Reboots is original and interesting. Reboots are not cyborgs or robots, even though I kept picturing them as cyborgs. Well, the similarity between Reboots and Zombies is that you have to shoot them in the head in order to kill them.
[Fun fact: I was eating when I got to the point where Callum turns into a human-eating monster and I lost my appetite for a few seconds.]
The reason why I didn’t give it a five out of five stars is because of the romance. The couple is cute and sweet, however, it escalates too quickly. It’s not an instalove, but still. It’s also kind of weird, because Reboots’ supposed to be less emotional than humans, yet Wren and Callum still have strong feelings for each other, like humans. Maybe Tintera want us readers to understand that as long as we have human inside us, no matter if it’s a lot or a little, we still have emotions. And maybe love is the strongest emotion (?)
Anyway, it’s a really enjoyable book, and I’ll definitely continue with the series. In fact, I’m reading Rebel right now for the 2nd book in the sunathon.
