Book Review – The Fox Inheritance

The Fox Inheritance (Jenna Fox Chronicles, #2)The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson

My rating: 3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)

This was… Well, it was a book. Yeah.

It started off interesting enough. The concept, in fact, was one I found fascinating; after a serious accident, the brains of three young people were downloaded to preserve them and somehow keep them alive. One had an artificial body created for her. Two sat on a shelf for more than 200 years before someone did the same for them. The trouble is, they were awake and aware and trapped the whole time. Imagine what that might do to a mind, and how they might adjust whee given a body again?

That said, the storytelling is slow in places, trips over itself (a bot who it just said can’t breathe taking a deep breath for instance) and loses all momentum about three quarters through. The characters lose focus, are not so bright for minds that are supposed to be brilliant… I just had so many problems. Everything fell apart in the second half, but three stars for a unique concept and interesting beginning.
