About the Book
WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS A LIE?
Population: Human … 7 billion.
Others … unknown.
When 14-year-old Charlie Blake wakes up sweating and gasping for air in the middle of the night, he knows it is happening again. This time he witnesses a brutal murder. He’s afraid to tell anyone. No one would believe him … because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago – the day before his dad died.
Charlie doesn’t know why this is happening. He would give anything to have an ordinary life. The problem: he doesn’t belong in the world he knows as home.
He belongs with the others.
Rating: (4 / 5)
Is it perfect? No, but the flaws didn’t distract that much from the story. Part of them can be explained by the fact that the story was written in British English and style. Even when I stumbled on word usage and structure, I kept reading because I wanted to find out what happened.
The novel ended with a cliffhanger, but that’s okay. Some tales need more than one book and this is one of them. Given the amount of detail and the length and depth of the story, the author brought it to a logical conclusion.
I am still suspicious of the good fortune in the end because it seems too perfect given the previous events. If anything, that was the point I predicted something before it happened. There were also a few poorly excuted statements of foretelling.
Still it reminded my of the Lord of the Rings. I will buy the rest of books if only so I can have a satisfying conclusion to the tale with all the adventurous ups and downs in between.
