Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

Incarceron (Incarceron, #1)Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought I would like this book a lot more than I actually did. The Prison was a very scary place to be. At first when I read that the Prison was alive, I didn't believe it. I thought the characters were just imagining it. As the story goes on, you believe it. The inmates just seemed to go from one bad place to one that was worse. The Prison seemed to go on forever. And there were "eyes" everywhere...watching. On the flip side, the other world was beautiful on the surface, but it was all a game. The story was a bit confusing, but that's because the two world stories were interwoven. The end could have been the end, but I could see it leading to a sequel. There's enough questions there to warrant it. I guess I just didn't like the atmosphere I imagined as the Prison (of course, you aren't supposed to like it) and the darkness and the hanging chains and spiders. Creepy. It was like they were going through a big maze and, if you like that kind of thing, you will love this book.

  1. I listened to this book on CD and rather liked it. Can't say that I liked the sequel quite as much, though.

  2. Hey, did you get my email? It's about the prize you won at The Christmas Spirit way back in December. Also, I extended the mini-challenge at 101 Fantasy so be sure to stop by over there and check it out. Hope all is well with you. =O)

  3. Can I introduce myself to the readers on this blog? I am a publicist in Houston, Texas and would love to see what types of books you are interested in reviewing.
