Cynically Sweet (Booklikes)

I'm not the most active user here on Booklikes. In fact, sometimes I forget that it even exists. However, I endeavor to come back and post more stuff that I enjoy.

My reviews aren't guaranteed to be something you agree with and my perspective on books isn't something most people generally want. However, I still hope that there's something you can gain from them and you don't feel as if you've wasted your time reading them.


Don't just take my word for it; read the books yourself and form your own opinion!

Follow The Sun

Follow The Sun - James Savill Bridget thought for a while before answering. "I believe the Earth is on a journey. We are privileged to be a part of that journey. Maybe the Earth's fate is already determined. Our actions may only determine our own journey's."

I won this book as part of the Goodreads First Reads giveaways portion of the website and I received the book in the mail today. I began reading it almost as soon as I got it and I read it in about 4 hours, breaks included. I can be kind of an easy to please critiquer, but I can also be kind of harsh. I guess it's best to make it known that this is entirely my opinion.

With the beginning of each chapter, we're enlightened with snippets, glossary terms and extracts from what's going on in the novel. These provide little bursts of information that sort of make it seem as if someone is looking back on these events as some sort of reasearch or report, summarising the events of these Earth problems. I think this plays well for the story, because that's basically what the entire book is. It doesn't provide unnecessary information, there's no unnecessary drama and the all the relevant findings are explained to the audience.

Do you know what it also reminds me of? It reminds me of Rocket Ship Galileo
