    WOW THIS WAS GOOD It took me quite some time to really get into the story, but after around the 200 page mark I was hooked

    Visually, Illuminae is an extremely fun and unique kind of book It s a romantic space opera told through a collection of interview transcripts, diary entries, emails and gorgeous space images like this Sounds amazing, no If I was rating solely based on cool ideas, this would get a bajillion stars.A book this attractive should not be boring and yet the most exciting things about it by far were the unusual style and graphics The story itself of a planet being invaded in 2575 simply didn t hold my attention I found myself wanting to skim read many of the pages Maybe it was because the lovers at the centre of the novel were boring caricatures of teenagers.Maybe it was because of the detailed scientific descriptions and diagrams of spaceships Maybe it was the tiresome and dull Unipedia pages that made me feel like I was studying for an essay But mostly I think it was because of the teens in love Kady embodies the definition of a strong heroine but doesn t actually have a personality beyond that Her entire characterization is built around badass girl power and I almost want to love that fact, but she never felt like a person She felt like a cardboard cutout delivering snarky toughness.The conversations between her and Ezra feel forced, like someone reading off a script It s the kind of book that looks way better from far away.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

    DNF at 30%This book is written in epistolary format, and it has the honor of being the most annoying book I ve read this year Some people love that stuff I ain t one of them I love space shit Firefly Star Wars yes, EVEN THE NEWER ONES Star Trek I loved Enterprise and I don t care who knows it This book was just terrible and terribly formatted.The first few chapters are entirely interviews It was annoying as shit It didn t endear me to the main characters, and it explain nothing Interviews are nigh on useless for building a memorable introduction, unless it is in the hands of an extremely skilled writer Not the case here.So right off we have an annoying girl who s thinking about her ex bf when the invasion occurred huh I have no idea where we are I have no idea what year it is I don t know what a Kerenza whatever is Interviewer Wait, you people had a subway system I thought this settlement was illegal Ezra Mason Chum, the Kerenza mine operated undetected for twenty years Whole families lived there You know how far from the Core we are, right WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON Bad start And it didn t get much better After what seems like 10000000 pages of interviews, all of a sudden we re at war still no idea where we are, what year it is, how we got here, etc and then young people are getting conscripted for the military Anyone showing C grade ability or better is to be conscripted the day they hit eighteen We need pilots We need gunners We need spanner monkeys and chipheads And we need them now.This is an unprecedented situation to my knowledge, no stellarcorp has ever openly attacked a United Terran Authority ship I don t care if BeiTech Industries litigation department has enough red tape to gift wrap a small moon These corporations need to learn nobody is above the law and nobody attacks a UTA vessel without consequences. Yay.There are battle ships and specs of battle ships.Do I give a fuck No, I don t There are cool pictures There are snippets of things I couldn t give two shits about What I want is a sensible story, and I didn t get that here I got a headache instead.By 30%, I still have no idea what the fuck is going on I concede, my brain prefers structure If you re into this stuff, good for you It s just not for me.

    You picked a hell of a day to dump me, Kades I swear the interviews with those two at the beginning of the book are certainly among the best introductions to a new series I ever read I mean OMG THIS BOOK I m still not over it I swear when I started to read it I really didn t know a lot about Illuminae There were only three things I knew and I had absolutely no idea how it would work out for me.1 It s a sci fi series.2 The format is kinda weird and apparently the audio book is the shit 3 The hype around it is so real that it s almost a physical thing.Well, enough reasons to pick up the book and to give it a try, right If only I would have known what I was signing up to lol Nothing, really NOTHING prepared me for the things that were about to come I was totally swept away by this book and its events and yet yet there were many typical tropes I already read about a thousand times BUT tell you what It worked And damn did it work I dunno how Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann did it but this was so, so, SO GOOD The suspense was killing me and whenever I had to stop to read all I wanted to do was to continue I mean a virus outbreak in one of the ships My first reaction was Been there, done that, got the freaking t shirt , but WOW once you dive into the story, once you get used to the format it s almost like you re actually there, like you re fighting alongside Ezra and Kady and this was just awesome The victim often seeks physical comfort hand holding, embraces , ultimately increasing the chances of spreading infection It s genius, really Awful, horrifying genius I think you can already tell that I m struggling for words It s so hard to put this experience into coherent sentences All I can say is that this book is swallowing you whole and then spits you out at the most crucial point And there were plot twists JEEZ Were there plot twists The kind of plot twists that turn your entire world upside down and leave you gasping on the ground I WASNOT PREPAREDFOR THIS The best thing about the entire book were the characters though They made it all so authentic and realistic and I found myself hoping they would make it while I sent prayers into thin air Which should give you a good impression about how attached I got to them Plus I had a crush on all three of them I love Kady and Ezra and I ADORE, I ABSOLUTELY ADORE AND LOVE AIDAN 3333And their conversations Their humour and easy banter, the bitter truth that was hidden within it so casually This was nothing but awesome Let me introduce those three The characters Beware You re entering my characters section now and there might be spoilers ahead of you Either you rearrange your course or you head straight into unknown non terrestrial territory P Ezra That s so not your business it almost punches clean past the event horizon of Not Your Business and becomes Your Business again Haha Oh gosh, I loved him from the very first moment I read about him This boy was such a precious snowflake and he had a mouth on him LOL I lived and breathed for the moments he appeared He was really such a sweet guy and behind all the cussing and swearing he was a real romantic 3 I can understand why he loved Kady and their relationship was amazing They were friends and lovers and all I wanted for them was to be happy and to see each other again Okay, well for the benefit of the sight impaired, I am now raising my oh, dear yes, it s my middle finger at Mr Postgrad here All he thinks of amid this loveless dance, all he cares about here on the edge of forever, is HER He does not want to die Not because he is afraid Simply because he cannot bear the thought of leaving her behind And there, in that tiny moment, I envy him Kady If I lose Ezra too, it ll be one body blow too many If I lose Ezra too, I ll give up.I don t think I have anyone else left.But while I have him, I ll fight tooth and nail to keep us safe Whatever it takes Kady sighs deeply Wow Just wow I rarely read about such a fierce heroine and despite being so small she was so brave and A.M.A.Z.I.N.G I mean she literally took it up with the entire world and nothing, really nothing that happened ever managed to get her down She got up time and again and she never stopped fighting That inner strength and iron will whistles I guess I was a goner the moment she appeared in the book 333 I love my precious girl and she needs to be protected at all costs She d probably kick my behind for that statement though lol She is a tief A whisper.Melting through curtains of code and shadow Like a knife through black water. ByteMe see u soonByteMe or die tryingByteMe haha AIDAN And now, with no other option, They have turned to me Plucked me back from the black they left me in.Thinking I will save them And here comes the character I truly loved the most AIDAN the AI Yes, you read right I absolutely loved and adored AIDAN GAH I worship AIDAN I m utterly and deeply in love with him her it I carry a torch for AIDAN I m so besotted with this AI, it s not even normal any lol AIDAN was such a deep character and so very, very human This AI had such a beautiful soul I loved every single word he she it thought and said And I really dunno what this says about me lol My buddy and I even wondered if this makes me AI phile or robo phile XD Is there even a word for the state of falling in love with an AI I can t even tell you what made me fall head over heels for AIDAN but I guess it was the amazing mixture of a morally grey character that only wants the best for his people but choses the wrong means to achieve that goal All I know is that I love AIDAN and that I really, really hope to see of him in the next book 333Funnily enough I read the interview with Amie and Jay at the end of the book and Jay explained his feelings about AIDAN like that I think it s the deepest character I ve ever written, which is odd considering it s a machine I dunno what it says about me that the mass murdering artificial intelligence affected me the most Nothing good, probably Haha I can relate to that statement so much SAME, Jay SAME XD Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness Before this moment, I have never wished To be something other than what I am.Never felt so keenly the lack of hands with which to Touch, the lack of arms with which to hold How many people have loved only to have lost How countless, the hopes that have died Conclusion I loved this book with every fibre of my heart There was never a dull moment I was constantly on the edge of my seat and I bit my thumbnail about a thousand times lol If there ever was a definition of suspense you d probably find a picture of Illuminae next to the word in the dictionary Yes, it was that good If you re still hesitating to read this book just because of the strange format Just pick it up Read it Feel it Get swept away in the tide and enjoy that freaky outer space ride You won t regret it XDAnd last but not least I want to thank my witchling for that super amazing buddy read We re one of the best buddy read teams ever and I can t wait to dive into Gemina with you I enjoyed this br so much It was a lot of fun to guess the outcome of the ending and to wonder about what would happen next and I m so glad we decided to read this together To another hundred buddy reads with you P Did you really think I d let you off the hook lol

    Not to be dramatic but I feel like I ve just went through 9 different emotions within the last two minutes and at any given moment now, I m going to explode and become an entire fucking solar system.Anyway, I m sorry this review is a mess but since I can t even write bad poetry in an attempt to get my feelings outside of myself and until the universe sends me my next favorite person so I can unload all my emotional baggage on themthis hellsite will have to do The universe owes you nothing, Kady It has already given you everything, after all It was here long before you, and it will go on long after you The only way it will remember you is to do something worth remembrance First of all, I want you guys to know that the only thing that is constant in my life is my love for this series and my ability to fall back on sorry just got your text but anyway with that being said, I feel like we should collectively admit how scary it is reading this book when you have no skills and no passions and when you want to Do something but mainly, you really just want to lie down doing nothing like, I just realized that I m not really adding anything to the universe or anyone s individual experience, I m basically just racking up the water bill but these kids they know how to use missiles, fly rockets, hack computers and dezombie giant spaceships while also going through break ups and heartaches and all kind of interpersonal problems this is just my humble opinion but you guys are literally just 17 years old Your life should only revolve around two things 1 single handedly sabotaging your social and academic life and 2 figuring out how to take naps without accidentally time travelling to 2025 seriously, I have an unbecoming resentment towards anyone around my age who is doing something productive with their talents, fictional or not, and therefore I feel personally attacked by this book I mean explain this it was basically the apocalypse, right guess how many characters stopped to think, you know what time it is Time to steal clothes without worrying about the retail workers whose jobs I might be putting in jeopardy or small business owners ZERO which makes me wonder.are you fucking kidding me anyway, the moral of this story kids is if you ever feel hopeless, go outside and lay in the grass and feel the coolness of the dew on your skin and look at the sky and breathe deeply you are not alone there s a pink haired eighteen years old and her artificial intelligence best friend up there fighting a maniac organization that invaded her planet and I guarantee you they are IN DEEPER SHIT ok, the characters honestly, I love every single one of these characters and I am so sick of my weak disintegrating body I need to become strong enough to lift them, their family and potential pets with one hand and carry them across spacesince you know, people tend to die in this book KADY GRANT I am frequently underestimated I think it s because I m short I want to be someone else but kady grant is already taken and I m not creative enough to become my own person kady is how do you say beautiful strong amazing capable badass powerful gorgeous stunnig effervescent ethereal and an angel like being whenever I see a fanart edit of her, I immediately die for two seconds before she gently floats down and revives me and softly wipes my gay tears while playing the lyre I just love her so much I wish we could get married so we can use glittery rose gold wax to seal our invites and honestly I wish I had the sheer will of force to be her because it was amazing how she got through everything she didn t think she was strong enough for even though her bravery was bordering on insanity and half the time, I was just like, what is she doing what is she attempting to accomplish what is she coercing from her soul why would she cosign on this spiritual monstrosity STOP HER also, girls with pastel hair make me weak in the knees so I might be slightly biased EZRA MASON alright, here s the thing I really can t choose between wanting to punch him and wanting to cradle him in my arms and protect him from all harm it s like trying to decide whether to have pizza or pasta you never turn down double carbs I feel like if Ezra were a real life person, he d be tragically undateable to the masses You would go on a dinner date with him and get drunk and share a spaghetti strand but you would never want to see him again he s the kind of person who would say uuh one second has passed when you go just give me a sec you know exactly that type aka, the type you need to avoid and sacrifice to the aztec gods he is kind of annoying but I love him. and if you think that I will forever look for any excuse, any opportunity to be as inconsistent as possible in all endeavors of my life always, you are most definitely correct AIDAN Am I not merciful ah yes, the arrogant mass murdering psychopathic part time tortured poet giant calculator how I ve missed it so arrogant in fact that he would give Julius Caesar a run for his money you know Julius Caesar the same dude who was kidnapped by the cicilian pirates and when they demanded a ransom of 620 kgs of silver, he got really angry because he thought he was worth than that and actually made them raise it to 1550 kg uh uh so hey, scientists who are actively trying to make computers learn human behavior and generally scream in existential horror, this is why you need to Stop I mean as appealing as it is to have an artificial intelligence software in the form of like, a really smooth orb for company, or even saaay uploading your consciousness into a computer that shit is too dangerous to mess with refer to the mass murdering part now back to fiction, AIDAN is the kind of character you love to hate but also hate that you lowkey love them you know they re Bad, and even if sometimes that little light escapes the darkness of their heart they catch it again meaning god is he messed up but you know what the smell of burnt toast is so good sometimes guess things are better when charred beyond recognition of their ideals KADY AIDAN Are you afraid Yes Energy never stops, remember It just changes forms I am still afraid lbr, this duo is even iconic than if dwayne the rock johnson was cast as sherlock holmes and vin diesel as watson they re like a fairy queen and a princess who work together to save a magical tree or something they are such a power couple I cannot wait for them to bring about world peace and destroy the beitech killing squad I mean, personally, I know I d have way self esteem if I had an artificial intelligence for a best friend that s for sure KADY EZRA She is catalyst.She is chaos.I can see why he loves her no offense but if my partner doesn t sacrifice themselves to save me from Zombie Island, do we even need these rings I feel like ez and kady are that kind of couple where person A sends healthy relationship memes to person B who makes fun of them for being lame for but secretly saves to their phone you know that disgustingly cute couple you cannot stand but also lowkey wanna have what they have anyway, romantic love is fake but lowers my reading glasses I m willing to admit I ship them for a million dollarsjust saying JIMMY I just want to be me at the end, you know LISTEN james mcnulty is my favorite everything in this book and NO, this has nothing to do with the fact that I sometimes choose the least popular characters as my favorites because my borderline ass can t handle the idea of other people liking them as much as I do it s like being a proud mother at a school play and cheering every time your kid comes on stage even though they re playing the part of tree number 4 ok yeah maybe it has a little something to do with it but LISTEN I love jimmy so much, even the mention of his name feels like someone s actively scraping out my insides with a melon baller uuuh shit I fear my tears may drown some of the front row again but you know, they always say to Be Yourself, I guess I came into this world crying and I am never too far from my roots also, JIMMY DESERVED BETTER sooo, I take it I m right in assuming we all agree that re reading the illuminae files was the best AND worst representation of a GREAT idea yes good okay
