The Planetsider Review: Neverland Book Tours

Hey there!

This is a little book review just of you! (haha trying and fialing to rhyme here!) Okay in all seriousness this book review is part of Jenny’s Neverland Book tours which I love being a part of.

I’m not usually a fan of space related books but I have to say to say that I really enjoyed this one. I’m trying to read a couple of books from genres that I don’t normally read, just to read as much as I can and try reading new things.

The first chapter of the book was AMAZING! Like honestly it really kept me hooked on the plot and wanting to find out what happened next. I really felt as if I knew the characters Maria and Kullen and I loved how well they got along with one another and their good humour. You could almost imagine them hanging out together and having their own little private jokes and laughing together. It’s very character based and there is a good balance of characterisation, dialogue and description.

I won’t give you any spoilers because that’s not at all fair but I will say that the next chapter switches perspectives of a new character which made it very interesting and intrigued to find out what happened to Maria and Kullen. The story was written in third person narration which was really effective.

I was so impressed by the cover of this book, which you can see too if you look at the featured image of this  blog post.  I think the different shades of blue are absolutely gorgeous and you could almost interpret it in in two , or more  ways . I originally saw this as so peaceful, lithe boy looking out and just chilling but then I realised he could be really lonely and the whole scene could be pretty eerie! What do you think? I personally love it no matter what the interpretation!

There was a good distinction between the settings where different characters who lived in different places; where Evan was versus Maria’s setting which both really come to life. I was surprised by how much I related to some of the characters in the novel. Not in regards to where they lived or the dystopian nature of the novel but in relation to their lives. It’s a coming of age novel and young adult and their was so much to relate to, especially when Evan in reminiscing on his childhood and the people that were alive during it.

  1. I must admit that in the past, I haven’t always been attracted to sci-fi space themed books either! This sounds like an excellent read however! I like the fact that the settings were so distinct, something that I really value in a book is engaging description and the ability that this gives you to build up an image of the worlds in your mind. I definitely want to pick up a copy of this in my local library!
