"I am frequently underestimated."
Illuminae - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman

This quote is from when Kady Grant was getting interview.  He said he thinks this because he is short, people are underestimating him and what he does.I feel this quote is important due to the fact many people underestimate themselves in today's world.  You should always try your best at school work or even sports.

Review: Obsidio
Obsidio - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman

Not as wild a scifi concept as book 2, but just as action packed a ride as the rest of the series, Obsidio concludes the Illuminae Files detailing how the files were constructed and what happened on the illegal mining colony after the initial attack. Great illustrations, great graphic design, great writing. I've really enjoyed this series.

 

I'm also kind of glad it's over, as the longer it goes on, the more it stretches my suspension of disbelief that so many key characters are still alive. And not because they're mostly teenagers; fucking teenagers can do anything. Just, you know, that's a lot of crits in a row even for weighted dice. Like, a cat is introduced just so we see the building it's in get demolished, but the cat's fine.

 

But what ever, it's a better story that way.

 

Also, I know this isn't much of a review, but The Book Smugglers live tweet of reading this is already a far better review that I could hope to write.

ILLUMINAE
Illuminae - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman

A whoooooole bunch of people have reviewed this book in depth, and I don’t think I have much to say that hasn’t been covered already, so I’ll be brief.

 

Illuminae is sort of like Firefly/Serenity had a baby with the slow space chase from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and left it to be raised by The Martian. It’s kind of brilliant. I mostly loved it. I had to take points off for some stylistic choices I found questionable. The incident reports read like entries in a military sci-fi short story contest, and the AI’s inner monologue reads like a naval-gazing white dude bucking for a Pulitzer in literature. I found it a tad annoying after a while. But these were minor glitches in an otherwise engrossing page-turner. I am so glad I already own the rest of the series.

 

On to book two!
