After such a long long loooong time, I feel like I should be writing ‘Hello world!’ like when you usually start from scratch with web applications, this is the first thing you learn to do.
Web development joke aside, since I’ve started working, I really couldn’t find something in the Young Adult genre that was NOT filled with teen angst from beginning til end, so I kind of stopped reading for a while. I even broadened my scope to the entire fantasy world, but again, there weren’t many titles that entertained my imagination….
Until Amazon was so nice as to provide this title in my email!
*Be warned: I love science and this book has remnant information from said subject, therefor I will be geeking-out a bit, throwing in some concepts that might be foreign to you! So in the interest of not loosing my fellow-bloggers reading this, I urge you to first read the book then come back and comment on this review!*
When I read ‘Schrodinger’s Consortium’, being a Big Bang Theory fan all the way, plus loving the whole idea behind Schrodinger’s experiment [except maybe the part about the cat dying =/ ], I decided to take the risk of buying it, and boy-oh-boy! was I surprised!
Josie is one of the strongest characters I’ve seen in a long time! She has her whole world crash around her, has most of her loved ones taken from her, and she still manages to go through with a mission that could save a lot of people, herself and Reid included.
Not to mention all the geek references, such as Thor comics, Star Wars, physics laws etc. made it extremely comfortable for me to enter this world. The physics hypothesis Tonya introduced made my imagination wander to a whole new world of possibilities!!!
And the writing style… either there was a pretty great editor behind this writer, or Kuper knows her sh…. styles! =D When including day-to-day aspects in your work, explaining them so that the reader not only understands, but also starts to wonder if your hypothesis might actually be applicable, and see it coming true, now that’s amazing writing if you ask me!!! ^^ [Yes, yes, I know I’m totally dorking out over here =P but read the book and see if you don’t do the same!]
I was so caught up in this book, I finished it within a day and totally got my taste for reading back! *rejoicing*
So thank you Tonya Kuper for that!! ^^
