The conclusion was great, I can’t say how much I loved this book! It was both gripping and thought provoking, so anyone who likes The Hunger Games read this! Jan 02, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: In the future, a plague spreads through all the world’s animals. To survive, the humans create a northern wall through Fmma, England, etc.

Every living thing south of the wall is destroyed while all the people in the world move north of the wall into multi-leveled cities with no plants or animals. Their food is produced from chemicals and mold.

Because of the lack of space, it’s 30 years before anyone is allowed to have children. When Elli In the future, a plague spreads through all the world’s animals. When Ellie disappears, Mika’s parents believe that she’s dead. But the strong telepathic bond Mika shares with his twin leads him to believe that she’s alive, and he’ll do anything to find her again. This leads him to follow along with what the government demands of him even when he senses there’s some secret the government is trying to hide from everyone.

This includes joining his classmates in learning war games on simulators and competing in competitions that can make his family very rich. This book is an easy read. You keep turning the pages wondering if the twins will be reunited and if the big secret is what you think it is. It’s predictable but enjoyable. It reminds me somewhat of Ender’s Game even though Ender’s Game is much more compelling. There are also nods to ideas such as twin telepathy across long distances and even into outer space such as in Time for the Stars.

Also there are versions in this series of the animal companions from The Golden Compass and the rest of the His Dark Materials series although they’re not called “daemons” here. I might pick up the sequel when it comes out if I find it at a good price, but it’s not a huge compulsion. I’m sure the next book in the series will merely be a book about a battle, but I might be surprised. While I critique both purchased and free books in the same way, I’m legally obligated to tell you I received this book free through the Amazon Vine program in return for my review.

Mar 16, Jules rated it liked it. I was unimpressed with the writing style itself; a more flowery diction would have gone a long way to portray some of the dream motifs and fantastical, superpower elements prevalent in the storyline, I thought.

: El Rugido (Spanish Edition) (): Emma Clayton: Books

But then again, it’s a science fiction story at its core. Claytin did enjoy the character development. As the story begins, you assume Ellie is the main character, and keep on waiting for rygido plot to refocus on “The Roar” is As the story begins, you assume Ellie is the main character, and keep on waiting for the plot to refocus on her.


But she is the objective, and her twin brother, Mika, the character around whom the majority of plot revolves. Mika embarks on a compelling journey of self-discovery as he tries to search out his missing sister, all the while feeling foreboding instincts of paranoia in regards to how his world is treating the rugdo generation of and year-old children. The shift from one point of view to another is abrupt most times.

You’re rambling inside of Mika’s head and then suddenly, his mother is explaining her perspective on her son. In fact, the omnipotent editor explains everything too well. You understand pretty quickly that Mika and Ellie have a bond that allows them to communicate on a different level, yet each time they share a sensation or experience, the narrator feels obligated to explain why one feels the other’s pain. It’s a kids’ book though, so I’m probably being too harsh.

Most of my gripes with this book are at the beginning: Once the story gets going, the simplistic writing style felt less abrasive. And, even though I felt pretty sure of where the plot was going, the scintillating ride through Mika’s dreams, discovery of his powers and awareness of the world around him was nonetheless compelling. The future world of “The Roar” is gradually explained and the mystery behind the hastily-mentioned Secret yes, uppercase The author did write action scenes, which included Pod Fighters, very well.

I think I enjoyed the flying in this book most of all. That’s not to say I was displeased with the ending. It was appropriate, I felt, if not entirely conclusive.

I’m undecided as to whether I think a sequel would be necessary or interesting. While I wouldn’t say “The Roar” is a surprising contribution to the literary world, it claytno a lot more imaginative, creative and expansive than the simplistic plot presented in the jacket summary.

Definitely worth a read But seriously, I hope someone takes out the double simile in the book’s first very sentence and the poor summary on the jacket, which both gives away the part of ending and incorrectly conveys the themes of the book. The “roar” referred to in the title isn’t that of an animal’s, I don’t think.

And it clayfon points for being so long and being written at that level, if only because I am a big believer in long books no matter what your age. But as for the actual content? Let’s just say I am not surprised that it’s a first novel.
