Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Interview with the Puppet Master...

— feeling alien
Sleeping Giants - Sylvain Neuvel

Whoa this book was fantastic! It was so much more then I was hoping for. The story is told through a series of interviews and the subjects don't have any idea who the powerful interrogator/puppet master is that's pulling all of the strings. I loved that style of writing. It worked so well for this story. As for the ending, that was a curve I did not see coming! It was so completely unexpected & I'm still thinking about it! If you like sci-fi & you loved Illuminae then you should read this one ASAP! If Neuvel's debut was this good, I can only imagine what he'll come out with next! I know I'll be not so patiently waiting for it...
