Confession: I am a conspiracy enthusiasts. Thus, inasmuch as I try to read books for pure enjoyment, I simply cannot. My given nature causes me to read tremendously into the fictional narratives I pick up even though the text may be something the author never intended. Having said that, I absolutely loved Worlds Collide! I feel the need to admit however, that I was extremely apprehensive going into this book. I just wasn’t convinced that the plotline could develop any further; oh, but it did. Worlds Collide blew me away! I was enthralled throughout the entire narrative: the plot twists, the characters, the suspense and conspiracy, it was all captivating and superb! I honestly have not been able to experience a book the way I have with this one in a very long time. WHAT I LIKED: + Worlds Collide stirred up a lot more intensity than its predecessor in terms of tragedy and the basic plot did well for a sequel! We still have our gutsy protagonist, Sunny, whose unintended efforts seem to encourage more dissent in the political uprising surrounding the Bourge and the Urchin. Only, the stakes are higher now that Sunny and Jack have managed to “climb out” of their dire circumstance. Also, there were a series of events that caught me by surprise and I loved it! + Can I just express how much I love S.M. McEachern’s writing style? Because I do; truly, I do. It’s not so much that her writing is quaint or extraordinary ¿ though in my view, it legitimately is ¿ but rather, there is something beyond the traditional storytelling when it comes to this author. Firstly, her storytelling effortlessly draws you in and you unseeingly lose touch with reality. Secondly, she pays attention to the details that define her characters and the predicaments they find themselves in by having them engage through logical reasoning, emotion and belief in a convincing approach. Lastly, she brilliantly manages to use romance and a post-apocalyptic setting to bring to the fore important social issues in an informative civilized way. In other words, her books are more than just sappy-romantic-dystopian novels, they hold the capacity to spark a revolution! Further, they demand that you recognize and see the deception and immorality within our society and to take a stand! It goes without saying, McEachern has made it on my auto-buy list; mark my words, I will read anything this woman writes! + I loved the wider scope in Worlds Collide ¿ we are exposed to a great deal of privileged information; as well as, the history and conditions surrounding the Bourge’s fascist regime. Speaking about this repulsive regime, the complexity and conspiracy surrounding this government is eerily thought-provoking. Like, there were more than a few instances, where I had to step back and truly question my stance in society. I remember even now, on this one occasion ¿ while I was watching the news ¿ where I couldn’t help but notice the way in which different social classes and cultures interacted with one another; even more, what creates the tension between them. Have I mentioned how much I love books and how they challenge my perspective? + The established world in this series is remarkably well-conceived! Everything from the landscapes, to the forest, to physical appearances, to the technological advances, to the underground Dome, to the uniforms and costumes is solid and visually stimulating! + We are introduced to an added array of rich gritty characters in Worlds Collide and their essence is enough to engage the reader; I have to say however, that Doc was by far my favorite character in this book! You know those characters that intentionally take the “behind-the-scenes” role, but play a major part in the development of the storyline? Yep, Doc is one of them He exudes charisma, extreme intelligence and harbors a strong yearning to expose the corrupt influences of the Bourge regime despite his delicate connection to them; oh the drama! {rubs hands together} + There is a clever plot twist within the prose that will leave you stunned and perfectly offended to say the least; oh and of course, a brutal cliffhanger that is tragically genius! I’m just thankful that I don’t have to wait a year or two to uncover the aftermath! WHAT I DIDN’T LIKED: – I’m not quite sure how I feel about the romance between Sunny and Jack yet. I mean, it’s not so much that “I don’t like it,” but I just can’t seem to approve of their affair {sigh}. I suspect it is owing to the fact that while Jack is older than Sunny, she is still underage, that or it may simply just be my world view {shrugs}. I can’t deny how much I love the dialogue between the two though; it’s engrossing! I hope Sunny turns eighteen in book three so I can resolve this; it has to be a “mom thing.” ;) AFTERTHOUGHTS: For those who are willing to dig deeper, read this series. You will not only uncover a beautiful tragic storyline with realistic societal tropes, but a message never more important than it is now, that should not be passed up. You know, as I am mulling over this review, I am finally realizing, that dystopia and me, we are bound, forever. . . <3
