“When the real world is emptied of all that you love, how can you keep yourself from dependence on the virtual?
Animal activist and punk rock star Larissa Kenders lives in a dystopian world where the real and the virtual intermingle. After the disappearance of her soulmate, Andrew, Kenders finds solace by escaping to Nirvana, a virtual world controlled by Hexagon. In Nirvana, anyone’s deepest desires may be realized – even visits with Andrew.
Although Kenders knows that this version of Andrew is virtual, when he asks for her assistance revealing Hexagon’s dark secret, she cannot help but comply. Soon after, Kenders and her closest allies find themselves in a battle with Hexagon, the very institution they have been taught to trust. After uncovering much more than she expected, Kenders’ biggest challenge is determining what is real – and what is virtual.
Nirvana is a fast-paced, page-turning young adult novel combining elements of science fiction, mystery, and romance. Part of a trilogy, this book introduces readers to a young woman who refuses to give up on the man she loves, even if it means taking on an entire government to do so.”
**Thank you NetGalley for the ecopy for review**
I was truly captivated by the book’s gorgeous and jaw dropping cover, as well as its perfectly written synopsis.
Unfortunately, the story didn’t fit me, the gorgeous cover and the perfect blurb didn’t actually speak for what’s inside the book.
It’s sad to say that I find it really difficult to connect with the main character, to any character.
The book’s composed of multi point of views which gave me a headache. It was really confusing, the story itself was complicated then added the writing style, I just unintentionally blew my mind. The longer I read, the messier my mind gets. Loads of information, loads of unimportant details. It lacks in lots of aspects.
The story, I think, would still be good only if it wasn’t that flat.
Also I’m so not into this kind of genre anymore, maybe some will love this.
