This book was way different from what I normally read, which why I kind of picked it. I needed a short break in my normal genre. And honestly it was like reading a soap opera, with all the different over the top lifestyles and drama and angst. This book packed full of teem drama and angst. The writing was fun and easy to follow and honestly one of the reason I stayed with the book, even with all the drama and angst that made me roll my eyes more than once or even twice lol. We follow few people in this book, from the rich spoiled kids from the most upper floors all the way down to the lower and poor people floors. Some lose their money in the story others gain access to the upper levels and then some are just shady. I think all the different people, personalities and voices made it just so much more fun to follow along. I also liked the future tech we get in this book, but sometimes it was just a bit too focused on that and not the people and it got a bit too much. Not sure yet if it just was because it’s the first book in the series and introduces us to the tech or if that will stay that way. I guess I will find out in the next book. Overall, not the greatest book but fun and interesting enough to keep me reading it, all the drama helped too. I will continue on the series to see how it all turns out for them.
I rate it 3 ★
