I was interested in reading The Rule of Three by author Eric Wal
I was interested in reading The Rule of Three by author Eric Walters after I first saw the cover. It practically screamed End of the World and high intensity. That being said I was very excited to get reading and I will say that The Rule of Three was nothing like I expected it to be but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. Still, The Rule of Three was a novel that I found highly interesting and fast-paced.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In The Rule of Three main character Adam Daley is at his high school when one day everything goes upside down. It starts with a think-nothing-of-it power outage, but things seem to be getting stranger and stranger when Adam and his fellow students notice that not even their cell phones have service. Theories are being thrown about, everybody wants to know what’s going on and why this is happening. Returning to his home, Adam discovers that things are worse across the country. Allied only with his friends, family, an ex-government spy and his community—Adam will have to protect his neighborhood from outsiders, chaos and discover why all of this is happening.
When reading The Rule of Three I really enjoyed how fast paced the novel was. It felt like there was always a new thing going on in every chapter and nothing really dwelled on any one thing for longer than it had to. Take that and add it to how realistic the novel was about how the entire country ends up in such a great state of discord: it made The Rule of Three very exciting. Especially when it came to the unfolding adventures that main character Adam would go on in the novel.
Still, I did have a few problems when it came into my getting really interested and invested in the novel while reading. Personally, I was unable to get really interested in the way the novel was written. I felt that there was too much dialogue instead of any actual descriptions and with that came either plot holes or things that just didn’t make sense. Because of this I felt disconnected from the main character, Adam, and was unable to relate to him in most of the things that took place in the novel. There was too much dialogue for me and I was unable to produce the scenes in my mind which definitely took away from the experience.
Apart from that I did still like the setting and the way that the characters interacted in The Rule of Three. There were a mix of realistic and unrealistic things that came about when it came to them but I still really did find that the way the characters interacted and faced situations gave the plot a lot of life. Again, I just wish that there had been more descriptions of these characters to bring them to life also. My hands down favorite character had to be Herb. An ex-government spy and a total badass– that old man got things done.
Judging by the way that the novel came to an end I wouldn’t be surprised if a sequel managed its way into existence and any readers who read this novel and were more invested than I was should definitely be looking forward to it. The ending was nice and gave off a hopeful edge especially after you consider everything else that has happened in the novel.
Any readers who are interested in a novel that will give them a post-apocalyptic world that could become a reality will definitely like The Rule of Three. Readers who are fans of dystopia, adventure or want a novel with both of those themes and a small bit of romance tossed in should enjoy The Rule of Three.

Compared to other survival books, this one is a bit more calm. I feel like this book is more on the educational side, where i was learning how to survive if this would have happened while dealing different situations in a peaceful manner. Sure you dont get much violence until the end. but it was okay book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
