So I have mixed feelings about this. I didn’t really like the narrator that much, so it might have affected the way I felt about the book as a whole.
So the whole aspect of the book with pollution in the air was unique and kind of scary to think that it could possibly be a future for us here on Earth. Those who are rich enough have suits that filter their air and those who are poor breath the polluted air and die young because of it.
So that’s the whole idea of the book. A bunch of poor kids want to break into the rich people’s place of business and such and get suits for people who need them. It’s a whole political pull between the poor and rich and what people need verse what people want.
A lot of people have compared this to the Six of Crows duology, and I for sure can see the resemblance. But the character building and growth and the twist of Six of Crows was lacking here for me. The main hero was a little lacking in personality and the supporting characters didn’t support very well for me.
It was an interesting read, but I really don’t see myself reading it again.
Now, I do feel that this would be a great movie franchise, or a streaming-original series. It has a great premise to it all… and maybe it is just on the wrong platform for execution. Does that make sense? Probably not.
