What is it about? (summary from GoodReads)
No one inside the snow globe knows that Morozoko Industries is controlling their weather, testing them to form a stronger race that can survive the fallout from the bombs being dropped in the outside world—all they know is that they must survive the harsh Winter that lasts a month and use the few days of Spring, Summer, and Fall to gather enough supplies to survive.
When the seasons start shifting, Genesis and her boyfriend, Jack, know something is going on. As their team begins to find technology that they don’t have access to inside their snow globe of a world, it begins to look more and more like one of their own is working against them.
Genesis soon discovers Morozoko Industries is to blame, but when a foreign enemy tries to destroy their weather program to make sure their destructive life-altering bombs succeed in destroying the outside world, their only chance is to shut down the machine that is spinning out of control and save the lives of everyone inside the bunker–at any cost.
What I thought:
There was quite awhile between me requesting this book and actually reading it. Which meant I had no idea what the book was about when I actually started reading it.
The story started of really vague, there were a lot of characters and really weird circumstances (which maybe would have been less weird if I had read the back..). Nevertheless these weird circumstances really intrigued me, and I really wanted to know what was going to happen!
I slowly started to understand the world around chapter 5.
In this world there is a company which is testing the weather on human in small ‘snow globes’, to find the strongest race. This concept is really interesting, and that’s also the main reason for me requesting this book!
I do think the idea could have been executed better. The book was a bit too short for the story that was being told. If it would have been longer, more of the world could have been explored, since it was really interesting. Also in the book the figure things out unrealistically quick, I think with more pages this could have been done better as well. Since than the characters would have more time the figure things out, and it would feel more realistic! Also at the end we see about the world outside of their ‘snow globe’ but I’m really sad that they did not really explain what was going on. I mean you know something bad is happening, that’s why they have these ‘snow globes’, but they never say what.. And now I really want to know.
Another big complaint is that the main character was making really stupid decision. Too stupid to feel ‘real’.
I ended up giving this book 2.5 stars, because I think the idea of the book was really original, and that the story was going in the correct direction. But I think the author should have expanded a little bit more.
