Under The Mountain

Reviewing books since 2010. Obsessive dystopia fan.


Solid - Shelley Workinger Solid is a brilliant, fast paced book that I found very easy to get into and loved nearly every part of! I read the eBook version, for review and I was really pleased with the quality of the eBook. It had a little border around the numbered pages and the writing was easy to read, not so small that I had to squint all the time. Along with the fantastic writing, the whole thing gave off an air of professionalism, which I think all eBooks should be like.

The story itself was quite unique, although it reminded me off a book I read a long time ago that I can't remember the name of! I loved the idea of having a group of friends, as lately the YA Heroines seem to be loners! I loved all the main characters, especially Miranda, despite her faults! She's strangely loveable and very funny, constantly worrying about her skin - and everyone else's!
Onto the love interest. Jack was perfect - funny but thoughtful and the kissing scenes were written perfectly for him and Calliope. Hopefully there will be more in the next book...

I did find the ending rather cheesy however, very cheesy in fact. I was hoping for something with a bigger punch but what I got was kinda disappointing as I guessed everything before it had happened. The bad guy idea was straight out a Point Horror book too. Despite this, the ending did strangely fit well with the story and I can't wait to find out what will happen next!
