The War Inside by M. Kircher {Review}

When I learned that this was a dystopian book, I immediately jumped on it. A girl is left alone on what is left of Earth, which is very little, as the planet is dying itself. People have become detached completely from society and are no longer found in pairs or group situations, avoiding attachments to one another completely. The world has changed drastically, and the characters are in the dark when it comes to what is going on all over the Earth.

It was great how the author slowly killed off the planet and how much humanity, or lack there of, was changed drastically. I could vividly see the images the author was trying to portray, so all the writing was very expressive and the use of adjectives was amazing.

Since the book is from Thea's point a view, I thought we would be opened up to her mind much more than we were. She seemed like she had no thoughts or feelings about pretty much anything. Also, since we are watching her character develop along the way through the story, I would've liked to know more about how she felt about what was happening around her. What I did gather from her was that she seemed overly cheerful or happy considering her situation, which I found odd. Maybe it was from lack of getting to know her.

By the end of the book, I did find myself left with unanswered questions I wish would have been closed up, but maybe this is an indication of a sequel to come. Who knows.

There is so much more to this book, but I don't want to spoil the whole book for you. Pick it up, check it out. It's unique in the dystopian genre and I think you'll most likely enjoy this book assuming you like dystopian books. I would rate this book a 4/5. Can't wait for follow up books.
