As some of you may know, last year VARIANT was one of my favorites. It had action and thrills and suspense. The last page of Variant was like “WAIT – WHAT?!”
Unfortunately, Feedback just didn’t have the oomph that Variant had. It felt forced and went in a direction that I didn’t see, but also didn’t really like. I mean, stuff got weird and not in the good way. It wasn’t full of suspense or thrill, and fell flat for me. I think maybe the stakes were too high and it felt like the first book built and built and built and then there was nothing.
I don’t think it was the writing style that wasn’t working for me – because it the style was pretty much the same as Variant – it was just the story itself. And even though I didn’t really enjoy the story all that much, I gobbled this up in less than 2 days.
I’m looking forward to Mr. Well’s next book, BLACKOUT, which comes out in October!
