This was a quick book, and an entertaining read, though I don't think the plot was particularly groundbreaking. I loved the Australian setting and the sense of adventure. It was a super fast moving book and a quick read, and while I didn't completely feel connected to the characters, I liked them enough to be invested in the story and the outcome for the characters.
This book follows the path of quite a few survival/dystopians, so it isn't completely fresh, but the setting and some of the situations the characters face are unique so it feels a bit different. I'm definitely curious to find out what happens next, so I plan on reading the sequel.
Bottom Line: If you're a fan of dystopian, you'd probably enjoy this. It's quick and entertaining, if not completely novel.
