#BookReview :: Socialpunk by Monica Leonelle

Check out the book on Amazon

This is a traditional Girl meets Boy, falls in love, moves heaven & earth together to be with him and also saves the world in the process sort of story. No catch there. The setting is in the post-apocalyptic world. Yes, there seem to be a lot of those too. But what sets this book apart is its fast and action packed plot with a lot of cliffys. Since, this is a part of a series, a fair warning to everyone that book one ends with the biggest cliffhanger that made me go – ‘Are you kidding me?’

Though the protagonists are always the crux of a plot that revolves around them, in this particular book, I felt that the plot was much stronger than its characters. The plot had a certain unique quality to it. There’s a certain flow and enough action in the story to keep you anticipating and reading. Overall this is a fast read that you can sit down with and finish in an evening. It is interesting and definitely worth your time.

  2. Thank you for your review! I read this one earlier this year and had the same problem as you did where the plot overwhelmed the characters. I admit that there was some very lovely world-building. But I just didn't care for the characters. I probably won't pick up the sequel.
