Review: Floor 21 by Jason Luthor
FLOOR 21 - Jason Luthor

If you aren't a fan of open endings/cliffhangers then this is not the book for you. However, if you are willing to wait, I think this is going to be a great series. Floor 21 is full of unanswered questions and the author does a wonderful job of bringing you into Jackie's very inquisitive character.

 

The narration technique of using the characters "recordings", while interesting, didn't really meet my expectations. There were several instances where there was a conflict of storyline vs. actually being able to record. I think at some point my brain just skipped over the idea of the recording and I enjoyed it as a first person narrative. Jackie is the main narrator, but we do get insight into other happenings in the tower which add a lot of depth to Jackie's story.

 

Jackie is an interesting lead character. She questions everything around her and challenges the status quo. At the same time, she willingly obliges her bff with dance parties in her room. There is a lot of unknowns in her world and she's not afraid to see what else could be out there. I would say that this book is geared towards the young adult audience, if only that the main character is a bit young and her point of view can be a little grating (also whiny) at times. It's very representative of her age group and appropriate given the world she lives, but some chapters were harder to get through.

 

What is the Creep you ask? Terrifying is what it is. I became so engrossed in this book that I literally had a dream about the walls of my house being alive. I'd say that's pretty indicative of a good story. I've read a fair amount of dystopian and this is a fresh story with lots of opportunity to grow the characters and story line.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this introduction into the Tower and look forward to jumping into the sequel soon!

 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.

Have any other Netgalley members...

Been contacted by an author through there? I've only had it happen once. He's been perfectly pleasant and accepted my 3 star rating graciously, but I'm finding it creepy that he emails me about it. He invited me personally to review the book and sent an email recently asking if I had a chance to read it (I've taken a while), then commented after.

 

I haven't responded. Hopefully it will stop now, although he might invite me to read the next book in the series, which I don't plan to do.

"So since I live in a very 'urban' neighborhood, I thought if I pissed and shit myself and rolled rolled around in the dirt and just kept my head down, I could stay right on my street and they would never be the wiser."

 

Best escape plan ever.   /sarcasm.

This book isn't so much shit as about shit.    There's a lot of talk about taking a shit.
