Book Review: Lifers by M.A.Griffin
Lifers was a book I heard about from the publicist, and I looked forward to reading this one. But when I began reading I struggled. The first few pages drew me in, but as the story progressed I found myself getting distracted and picking up others books. With a clear weekend I made the decision to pick this one up again, and not move until I had finished, or at least made it further into the book.
On my second go at reading Lifers, I did mange to finish the book, but it wasn't an easy journey. The beginning of the book really held my attention, I loved the whole idea of the Kepler Valve and ending up somewhere else,...but obviously not for the reasons people are there for. About half way through the book I did struggle. There was an influx of characters and I found it hard to really pinpoint who was who and what they were there for. Towards the end of the book however, it picked up again, and I really found myself enjoying it again.
Lifers is a book full of mystery and definitely keeps you in suspense, wondering what will happen next. I did have really mixed feelings about this book, there were parts that I really found fascinating and moments where I was easily distracted. The characters were somewhat likeable, occasionally annoying with thier actions at certain points.
Lifers was a likeable book, although I did enjoy parts of it, it just didn't click with me 100%
