With the technologies that we have nowadays, it's not that undeniable that with the scientist and mechanics miraculous hands that they can build and create robots or lifelike as we call in Jay Kristoff's new novel. We couldn't even know if the people that surrounds us are actually people or they could be even .............. ROBOTS. Terrifying as it seems but it's not that bad to be surrounded by robots. Especially how the author, Jay Kristoff, wrote the novel Lifelike. With his impeccable writing and narration, it welcome us to be open-minded and welcoming robots in our environment is not actually a bad idea.
To be honest, I'm terrified at first to read the novel and ask myself "would I will enjoy this novel of his?" as I did DNF his another novel that is titled "Illuminae" which he co-wrote with Amie Kauffman. When I reach the first three chapters, I know that DNFing this novel will not happen.
The book is written with flashbacks. It tells and show us what's the life of Eve before she was fostered with her grandfather, Silas. With this type of narration. It helps us see what the book is all about. It let us imagine and answer the questions that we have in mind about the plot.
Aside from having lots of action, having Lemon Fresh and Cricket in the story gives us nonstop laughter with their humorous and out of this world lines. Just by hearing the name of Lemon Fresh already gave us a smile.
All throughout reading the book, I was wondering and puzzled why the title is formatted in a unique way. When I reached the end of the book, I'm not just been bombarded with the plot twist of the book. But was amazed why the letter "I" and "E" in Lifel1k3 is spelled with the number "1" and "3".
If you as well is wondering with the title, I challenged you to read and finish the book and be amazed and shock with Jay Kristoff's way of writing a book.
Lastly, with Lifel11k3, now I know why lots of the book community is going gaga with all of Kristoff's work.
