I mean, yea I hated the prose, ready to put it down, but I kept reading because the plot was intriguing. But fer the last year, whatever we do, however hard we try, it jest ain’t enough, Not without dustlabds.
The plot is a bit of a journey, bit of a time bomb. Which is one of the biggest reasons why I never really felt connected to the book. I was so disappointed doad I even contemplated to forget that I ever read sequel and to pretend that Blood Red Road was a standalone.
Tragically, I never did reach that part. We should have been talking about women like dushlands the whole time.
And their relationship growth is just about the best thing of ever. This review also appears in The Midnight Garden. They simply are women and they kick ass. She was awful to her sister, and a bit too reliant on her brother.
Blood Red Road: Dust Lands, Book 1 Book Review
Jack was my absolute favourite character in the story. This book definitely takes place in a dystopian world because quotation marks are extinct. Some people might not like the xustlands the author chose to portray her prose, but I enjoyed it.
Even when she’s in a cage fighting other girls and sending them to their deaths she’s so emotionally divorced from the situation that I couldn’t feel any empathy for her or interest in her escape. Get in their way, you die. She’s thirsty so she drinks water then splashes her face with water. Let’s see what are pluses and minuses of Dust Lands trilogy. I mean, I don’t care if your 18, you can still be a child. I thought the fact that they were twins would play an important role in all of this, but it was a plot line laid out but never explored.
Saba is also not a very consistent character. There’s still a bit that’s unexplored here, including the what and why of Dustland. But Blood Red Road was different and unique and exciting. As the story develops, one of the joys is seeing Saba discover her care for her sister and willingness to accept her as a person.
In the cage-fighters’ prison, Saba learns more about the mysterious robed men and the disturbing reason they want her brother. It’s not seeking to teach but to engross and entertain — and, for me, I was so thoroughly engrossed and entertained by this story that I really became invested in it over the course of almost pages.
I could go on and on, but frankly if you weren’t convinced by giant killer wormsthis is clearly not the book for you. It delivers what it promises, as I instantly became absorbed in Saba’s journey to save her brother.
Because once you start thinking, it all goes down the drain.
Blood Red Road
What a great read! View all 15 comments. I don’t think the author knew why Lugh had been kidnapped when she started writing. Want to Read saving…. Addictive plot – gone.
I just found myself sighing, wishing for more. AGain this may be due to the prose. Why do I always ship the ones who hate each other?!? This is not a talent Moira Young possesses. I highly recommend it to every fan of The Hunger Games. Vustlands of them were incredible.
It says so, damnit.
