Science Fiction Book Review: Wyso
So this is completely unheard of for me. I finally finished a book! Why so happy about there? Well, I am in this constant struggle between wondering if I’m easily bored, or if I’m reading terrible books. I’ve started so many books that have gotten rave reviews, and I just can’t finish them. That leads me to believe that I’m just doomed when it comes to reading!
But not now. Now I know it’s been the books I’m reading that just don’t hook me and drag me in. Am I really picky with what I read? Yea, you could say that. While I prefer science fiction and fantasy books (all kinds of fantasy) I don’t just stick to those genres. I have read regular fiction a time or two. But I’m starting to realize that I’m REALLY fussy over what I read. So when I tell you that Wyso is an amazing book, I mean it’s an amazing book. I loved it so much, that I grabbed up the second book.
But what’s it about? Well, it’s about this girl who’s mother dies when she’s really young and her father just loses all interest in living. He doesn’t keep an eye on her, and she’s pretty much on her own. She’s befriended by a group of boys who are all in similar situations, and they create a kind of pseudo family. Then one night Wyso and her friend are abducted by aliens. Without ruining the plot, I will say that we get to see Wyso grow and we get to see her relationship with the boys develop into something great. There were moments that made me laugh, there were moments that made me say “awww, that sucks” and there were moments that made me say “Wyso, are you fucking dumb, don’t do that!”
Clara has this awesome ease with words that reminds me of Stephen King without the pages of narrative. She gets to the point and she has some really beautiful prose in her books. I give Wyso five stars!
By the way, you should totally buy it here!
