An unique and utterly weird reading!
An unique and utterly weird reading! There are no books as Illuminae in the world. It’s definitely a 4 STARS book! I can’t give it the fifth star just because there is too much technical terms in a language that isn’t mine, so I wasn’t able to catch everything at perfection. But this book is UNIQUE in the world. In the UNIVERSE!!
The book was like a bible. I’ve never read something like this before! The story has been told through reports, emails, military files and more — I especially adore the schematics of the ships, I’ve actually lost a bunch of times on studying their planimetries. It’s like living directly all the story. At first, the reader doesn’t know a single thing: you don’t know if Kady will stay alive at the end of the story or what’s the destiny of the three ships. You just need to live the story through all these files that aren’t always that easy to read. Sometimes I was totally lost between all the technical terms and I didn’t really understand what the characters were going to do.
And not only that, but you enter in the mind of an AI (Artificial Intelligence) who is totally a villain but he’s not really a bad guy. I mean he’s a computer. Yes, I’m using ‘he’ because his name is Aidan and he has feelings and craziness in himself so I can’t see him as a machine. Beside this topic is one of my fears: the machines are going crazy and will destroy all the human race! Well, almost.
