      It was so close to being great So close There is a very real ability to write, a way of describing the futuristic aspects without being overindulgent Perhaps this is because the idea of the veneer is one that is easy to relate to Everyone knows about smartphones, about how we are making it increasingly easier for media to pervade every facet of life So upon reading this book, I can honestly say it felt like a very real potential future one in which the platforms for media cover every inch It was [...]

      The idea is awesome, but the implementation made it a difficult read Too much teen drama centered around a society where teens only care about violence and porn The antagonist, Russo, is the worst written villian I ve encountered He is one dimensional and basically just wants to kill Deron for no reason spoiler alert the whole he embarrassed me when I was like 3 is a weak excuse for the level of his violence The only character I started to like and that showed any development was Jalay The idea [...]
