Read + Review – The Width of the World by David Baldacci

31213721

Vega Jane, Petra, Delph, and Vega’s canine, Harry Two, have made it to a whole new world. It’s advanced, different, and has another language. But every place has a problem, and this new world has a huge one the evil Maladons. The regular people are like puppets on a string, because they don’t even know their actions are being controlled by the Maladons. As Vega Jane and her friends plan and prepare to fight back, will good vanquish evil? Or will Vega Jane and her friends break in the struggle, letting evil prevail?

I seriously enjoyed this book. I liked how the characters developed and how their relationship with each other became strained or relaxed, strengthening their bond. The plot was awesome, engaging me in every twist and turn. The writing style was really great, enhancing the plot and the characters. Adventure was a huge theme in this book, keeping me on my toes the whole time. I also like how the genre is a mix between dystopian and fantasy. I recommend this to everyone, especially to those who like dystopian or fantasy novels, or both.

One memorable thing about this book is how familiar the new world is. It sounds a lot like the real world, with cars and trains as well as the language. That is, until the magic comes in.
