Some Fine Day by Kat Ross
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This. Book. Is. Good. Period!
If you're looking for a little dosage of Jules Verne imaginary travels to the centre of the Earth (not the nasty movie), a luxuriously described survival in a remote island setting (including a hot guy named Will) with dangerous mutants that may be lurking around, a little bit of Ender's Game military training; and some scary crazy weather: hypercanes that destroy everything in their way; this is it: just read Some Fine Day. You'll be rewarded with the awesomeness of this story.
The plot centres around Jansin Nordqvist, a 16 year old girl who is the daughter of a high level military head. They live in one of the cities that have been built underground as in response to the crazy climate change that occurred in the future. The melting of the Arctic and Antarctic ice unchained a crazy weather where 5 immense hurricanes hypercanes, erratically move in the surface of the Earth, continent-sized storms, destroying everything they encounter.
Jansin has been training in military school since she was 8 years old. Thus, she is basically a kickass with some serious combat skills.
The plot of this story thickens after Jansin and her family take a vacation on the surface, making the reader travel with her to unexpected adventures.
I found it fun, quick and very interesting! But I think that the ending could have delivered better closure, as I have so many questions.... Is this really it? No more Jansin and Will?
I don't think my imagination is good enough to fill in the blanks :(
I WANT MORE
I had so much fun reading it! Be gentle with it and it will reward you with its subtle messages. It was super appropriate and scary to read during this week as the terrible news of where a study from NASA explained that "a major section of west Antarctica's ice sheet will completely melt in coming centuries and probably raise sea levels higher than previously predicted, revealing another impact from the world's changing climate." YIKES!
I received an advanced copy of this book from its publisher, Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for this :)
