Book Review: Unison Spark
Andy Marino's Unison Spark combines elements of the Matrix, Aeon Flux, Twitter, Facebook, Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World into a digital narrative. Easy to read and suspenseful, the book follows 15 year-old, blue pony-tailed Mistletoe as she tries to understand who she is in a complex world.
I appreciated that the book was free of vulgarity. If you enjoy DuPrau's Ember series with a dash of futuristic sci-fi, then Unison Spark should be on your must read list.
