To kick off this blog, I have a hardback edition of Human.4 to give away. It’s not an ARC or anything, just a plain book. I read it and didn’t like it enough to keep in my library.
I am going to take a page out of Sarah Prineas’ book and have you all pick a number from 1-231 and I will give you a line from that page. This giveaway ends August 3rd at midnight EST! I will use a random number generator to determine the winner! List your country as well. Also, I am only able to send books to the USA and Canada at this time. Sorry, I don’t know the rules of book sending well yet and don’t want to get anyone in trouble!
If you are the winner, you have three days to claim your prize, or I’m picking another (in the interest of time and expense).
Okay, ready? Comment! And keep watching this blog for more giveaways!
My review of Human.4 by Mike A. Lancaster
Rating: 4 stars
Read: June 23rd, 2011
It was an interesting concept, the main character was snarky and funny, but I just felt like it was pieced together. Which was probably the point, seeing as it’s on tapes that aren’t complete being listened to at an undetermined point in the future. I was excited about this book up until the end, and then I just felt uncomfortable. Up until then I was like “I am so keeping this book! What an inventive way of doing things!” And then it just… stopped. I was left more confused by the last 50 pages than I was at the beginning.
Which, again, was probably the point. But even if you leave me MAJORLY hanging, at least have the courtesy of giving me SOME answers. Something that made me feel like I just didn’t waste my time going through this amazing story to find a lump of coal at the end. So, in a way, I loved the book and in a way it frustrated me. I feel like I kinda wasted my money getting it. Like I should have waited for the paperback.
Four stars for the concept. Probably 3 for the execution. But interesting. I just didn’t like it personally.
