Some of my assumptions were true, but by the fifth chapter of THE WATER WARS, i was suprised at how much i was into it! There were two things i absolutely LOVED about this book, they stuck out and helped me enjoy this book!
One - the governmental building of the story. the authro graduated from Harvard Law School, so i should’ve expected his subtle, beautiful layering of the politics that paints a vivid structure! Cameron went above and beyond to incorporate the Water Pirates, the PELA, and many other tyrant organizations that i was transfixed by! The political structure of the WATER WARS is not boring, but explained in small snippets so as to come together in a cohesive plot!
Two - the non-stop thrill. There was not ONE chapter after the fifth one where you can just sit back and breathe with Vera and Will. They are both fabulous protagonists who changed subtly, not so largely that it was obviously forced! I expected a bigger climax, a big decision that Vera had to make! I thought she’d be forced to kill a man, but she never had to point a pistol. Just when i thought the ending had come, a happy one, i was wrong!
Overall, this book is no Hunger Games, and i think the blurb on the front cover is misleading because the action is not as well described and the protagonist is much more immature than Katniss! But overall, this is a book that i wil cherish for a long time!
A MUST READ!
The Ending - One of the sweetest endings i've ever read, especially for dystopian! The courage and the very last sentence make the ending worth WHILE! I cannot believe what happened in the end! And the very last page is so heartfelt and yet subtle i LOVE every part of it!!!!
The Cut-Throat, Non-Stop, Unrelentless Action! - The subject says it all. There is not ONE CHAPTER where someone is not shooting at someone else, or where someone is DYING! It's amazing, it's exhilirating! Some people say there is no "thought-process" but i'm kind of glad that it's all throat-punch, shoot-em-up kinda stuff instead of "if i do this, what will happen?"
