Ana has awoken in a strange place. The only thing she knows is her name, which she discovered was pinned to her jumpsuit when she woke up, and directions. Experience. Discover. Survive. With those directions, she realizes that she has no memories, and has no idea why her jumpsuit contains knives and a pistol. With the touch of a button, a hatch opens up from the rocket she has been in and steps into a hostile planet. But she isn't the only living thing there. A mysterious creature that looks like a giant worm with a gaping mouth full of teeth is hunting something down, and by the looks of it, it seems to be hunting Ana and her newly discovered traveling companion, Todd. With a ticking clock, a crisis on Earth, and lives on the line, how is Ana supposed to save the world, and everybody she has come to love?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is amazing! I couldn't relate to anyone in this book, which is a bit sad, but it didn't bother me too much. I think my favorite character is Ana, only because none of the other characters were described as good as her, which isn't a shock, considering the fact that the book is based on her. She just has this kinda air to her, you know, the whole, "I think rationally in extreme situations and I pull through pain." kinda attitude that I wish I had. The way that the conflict was built and how the trip was described was written nicely, and nothing felt out of place in the story.
Paradox was written in third person, focusing entirely on Ana, which is ok, because her role in the story was the most interesting (insert a big fat "DUH!!" right here). The flow was ok, but it wasn't the best. It seemed a bit fast pace, but it was ok. I didn't mind too much. The writing style was very serious, as Ana is a very cut-and-dry person, but there were some nicer parts to the story. I recommend Paradox to teens ages 13-16.
