This is a quote though, as now you want one:
'You've always been our monster,' says Adrian. 'Don't ever forget that.'
Will she forget that?
(late review, FYI... Thought I'd post due to the post a week ago mentioning this).
Author: Sangu Mandanna (I haven't talked to her; she's lovely! This hasn't effected my review thought)
Source: Bought from Waterstones (it wasn't free or cheaper so when I say ‘worth the retail price’ it’s not a half-formed opinion). Recommended for: People who enjoy ethical issues being explored, those who liked Delirium (but not for the detail as I wouldn't say this goes in such the same way into the manufacture of the world) The Lost Girl is based on Frankenstein (which I haven't read). But we're going to read it in English (which I only half-hate -.-) We are reading it after this creative writing piece which if it had been reflective of Frankenstein would’ve most likely ended up Fan Fic...
The Lost Girl is Sangu’s debut dystopian and for her first book it slots really well into the genre, but equally it has its own ‘vibe’. The parts when dystopian was woven (pun excused please) most thickly was when the characters would perceive themselves to be a piece of somebody’s chess game... “I won’t be played with.”
Should they be ringing?
It slots in well but,
that's because a new cliche was used...
Your life is dangling by a thread.
In conclusion it’s a fascinating book that's neither black or white. Will you agree?...
