My Book Review of Ark (Forward collection)

ArkArk by Veronica Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Emotional Retro & Introspection For Life

The flow of this story and its organization definitely fit the sentiment. It has retrospection that sometimes seemed out of place but, as with life, eventually finds personal meaning for the protagonist. It ends up being quite emotional and the feel of it is befitting of the character’s journey.

What I liked was Samantha and Hagen’s relationship. The connection they had was beautiful in so many ways. It was what actually drew me into the story.

I usually say what I dislike at this point. With this book, that’s so hard. The author is skilled at making the reader think profoundly, which I love, but it does take a bit for all the pieces to come together. I can see how it might not appeal to readers who want more action. Still, if you give up the discovery of this story based on that, you’d miss something special.

I recommend this book for those book lovers who enjoy end-of-times tales, self discovery stories, thought-provoking reads, and futuristic fiction. This is a quick read, but it will stay with you after you finish. There’s some beautiful thoughts, lovely excerpts, and it’s rather moving.
