Book Review: Feedback by Robison Wells

Variant #2
Author: Robison Wells
Reading Level: YA
Genre: Dystopian
Released: October 2nd 2012
Review Source: Harper Teen
Available: Amazon

Summary: (from goodreads) Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs.
Or so he thought.

But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison: a town filled with hauntingly familiar faces. People from Maxfield he saw die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.

They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. As he searches for answers, Benson discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are more sinister than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

Variant blew readers away with its breakneck pacing, flawless plotting, and impossibly high stakes. It earned starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and VOYA, which described it as “an exciting, edge-of-your-seat read that combines psychological themes from works like Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and Ender’s Game in a truly unique way.”

In Feedback, Robison Wells delivers all the answers you’ve been craving—with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the very last page.

When reading and reviewing different books you are introduced to new worlds and intriguing characters. Through the masses of novels though, you can loose interest in reading so it is a major relief when you can find a novel that sparks your interest again. Feedback does just that in peaking my curiosity and bringing back my hunger for reading. Feedback does a good job of balancing the action and emotional aspects of the book. Also the flow of the book, which makes time seamlessly go by.

Feedback is a mixture of science fiction, thriller, and mystery. Robison Wells, the author, does well to merge these different genres into a unique book. I also must mention that for a sequel there is no layoff in pace or quality in the book. In Feedback we find Benson and Becky escaped into the wilderness where they stumble upon a strange settlement that is filled with familiar faces. Afraid of past memories, Benson must choose whether to protect the ones he loves or rather to take care of himself. Feedback answers questions from the first novel while also painstakingly making some more. So taking all these points and examples into consideration, Feedback is a great book and also apart of an intriguing series, definitely a book to get you out of that reading funk.
