Book Review

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing had a strikingly original idea, or maybe I just haven’t read enough science fiction! I loved the narrator, April May, although sometimes she infuriated me. But at least she knew it.

The only problem I had with this book is that there seemed to be a lot of really great ides that didn’t quite go anywhere. If anyone read it, I’d be glad to discuss some of the plot holes I noticed.

Overall, though, I thought this was a great read. I think it examined humanity in a way that other books might not have the opportunity to do. What would you do if statues suddenly appeared overnight out of nowhere in cities around the world? Would you defend them or would you be afraid of them enough to try and destroy them? I want to say that I’d be with April May, even though the only way she became famous was being in the right place at the right time!

I hope there is a second book, I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next! I don’t see how there couldn’t be a second book…
