Mirror X by Karri Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
Cassie Dannacher wakes up in a hospital over 1,000 years into the future after her space capsule is retrieved from space. She soon learns that 600 years prior to her arrival, the earth was struck by a plague, killing over half of the world’s population. Naïve and desperate, Cassie, who longs for home and is having trouble adjusting to the new, dictatorial 31st century government, is comforted by Michael Bennett, the 20-year old lead geneticist at the hospital where she was revived.
But why is Cassie in genetics’ hospital in the first place, and why do several of the people around her seem so familiar, including Travel Carson, the hot and edgy boy she is fated to meet? Soon she discovers there is a sinister answer to all of her questions – and that they want something from Cassie that only she can give.
*I revieved an e-book in exchange for an honest review*
Mirror X follows the pattern of a classic YA Dystopian. Yet the timelines and the technology which is introduced on the story are really original.
Cassie finds herself in a world new and foreign. The way her feelings and reactions are portayed are really realistic and logical. I loved the world building but the book lucked on the emotional part, meaning the romance.
In a dystopian novel i believ that it would be better if emotions should be portayed more, in balance to the setting and the characters' lives.
Overall "Morror X" is a good read with the potential to become better.
