• foldedpagesdistilleryGemina: 10/5 Stars .
    Explosive, Brutal, Hilarious, Unforgiving, Fist Pumping, Jaw Dropping. These are the words I’m using for Gemina. I started Gemina on Thursday and stayed up last night until 3 a.m. finishing it because I COULD NOT STOP. .
    It actually took me a few pages to get back into the groove of the style and feel like I had a good grasp of the situation, but I’m not calling that a bad thing. The amazing style that makes this book INCREDIBLE just takes a minute to lock into. .
    I’m not going to say anything about the plot or story because I don’t want to spoil anything. But let me tell you, the story, the new set of characters, all the high stakes situations are just perfect. (am I gushing? I’m obsessed) .
    This is brutal and unforgiving and heart stopping, but Kristoff and Kaufman add this perfect balance of humor all over the place that is just genius. Keeps the situation high tension and brutal, but takes just enough edge off that you’re heart isn’t going to explode. .
    But it’s the format, people. Not only does it make this a cinematic read, but adds surprising emotion. I definitely choked up a few times when I turned the page and read the words the way they were presented. .
    Also, there are several pages of read in this that I felt were absolutely brilliant. It’s a spoiler to say why, but while I was engrossed in the story, I was also absolutely delighted by how the format transformed it into something next level. .
    I’m extremely nervous. Illuminae and Gemina were nothing short of amazing. I’m so nervous for how the third book will wrap up. I’m going in with mega high expectations and I absolutely can’t wait. .
    I tip my hat to Kristoff and Kaufman for imagining up and executing such a brilliant and brutal reading experience. .

  • jaimebug1@foldedpagesdistillery I suggested it for my book group this past week, but they apparently don't like reading books that that leave you hanging if there still needs to be some released. I told them we'll read it next November. But I just ordered Illuminae on Amazon this evening. I'm excited to read it.
