I feel like this book and "world" have a lot of potential but the book fell flat for me. The conspiracy story line seemed extremely rushed and left me with more questions that anything. How did Charlie make it to Las Vegas paralyzed and wounded? Why was Arlo trying to overthrow the Golden State? How did the Las Vegas community start? What was the point of the pumpkins? So many questions.
I need to talk about this book with others who read it. After seeing others post about the ending, i need to talk it out. Maybe i’m completely off here- but am i the only one who got the feeling Arlo wasn’t as bad as the Monster they made him out to be in the end? Maybe he kept saying it was all “worth it” just to reunite the brothers in exile? Knowing they’d be better off outside the golden state, or at least together. I pictured the pumpkin launch a way for charlie to practice, and set up the initial fall off the roof. Like charlie was in cahoots with these guys all along or something! Someone else share with me your thoughts because I really liked this book and the end just left me wanting more! :)
I feel so guilty. I just couldn’t get into this story so I did not finish. First time this has happened in a while. Anyone else feel the same?
I cannot seem to grasp the concept of this story line. To me it feels like he does not explain the reality the book is based on very well. It feels like I’m coming into a book series and I’m starting out on book 3 instead of book 1. It’s a good book I have continued ready however the reality has me puzzled very frequently. Does anyone else have this problem?
