Review: Ken Kroes – 2222 (Percipience #2)

2222, Percipience Series
Ken Kroes

Here we return to the world 200 years after ‘The Great Loss’ where most of the world’s population was wiped out by a deadly virus. 4 villages remain, and a lone outside village has finally come into contact with them. The only problem is that the new town is built for an old consumerist population.

The characters are well realised and relatable. I recognised the ‘kind’ of each of them, and thought about how the Elders were just as manipulative as Jake. This novel reminds me again that I don’t understand most people. I’d love to just work in the morning, and enjoy the afternoon reading.

Wow. Deadly. Twisted! Amazing! I didn’t see things coming. Science! Chemistry! Awesomeness! Insert a very long stretch of adjectives here…

I can’t wait to read the third book, and the only reason I’m not doing it right now is so that I could write this review and not get them confused in my mind. I’m going to be pretty devastated by the end of it probably, so wait for my sobbing review soon.

This book is an incredible improvement over the first. The writing is tighter, and the editing cleaner the further you read along. I’m giving this one 5 stars. Go and buy it. It will make you think about the world in a different way.
