0.4 by mike lancaster (2011)

This is my first book for the 2011 debut author challenge. i rarely just grab a book at the store without checking it out at goodreads and amazon but i just had to have this one! the cover is ugly (in a good way) it makes my skin itch...

mike lancaster has written a teen-sci-fi novel very recommendable to boys. it's coming directly from the future:

records have been found that derive from the early 21th century, a time we hardly know anything about. they are the tape recordings of a boy called kyle straker, about a unbelievable event that has happened when he lived. if his story is true, everything we know might be a lie.

the book is fast and entertaining, with little sarcastic comments/explanations of the editor from the future, lancaster himself. 

P.S. in the US this book will be released under the title human.4  in march 2011.

  1. Hi! I just found your blog through the Dystopia Challenge Review page! I can't wait to read this one! It seems so intense, and the idea of the tapes reminds me of the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Thanks for the review!

  2. hi tessa =)

    thanks for visiting!
    thirteen reasons why is such a great book! i hope you're not disapointed when i tell you 0.4 is not really alike... but it's fun anyway and teen-sc-fi, the new trend i think =)

    hope to read your review soon...
