    An unconventional and awesome quirky read

    As a huge A.S. King fan, I had to pick up Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future. And oh boy, this book is just as amazing as all of her other ones. While the concept of the novel seems really strange to others, I thought it was refreshing and uniquely quirky. When Glory and her best friend drink a dead bat, they start seeing people’s futures and pasts all at once. While all of this is happening, Glory is still struggling to figure out her place in the world- and she keeps wondering about her mother, who committed suicide 14 years before. In general, this book is entertaining, compelling, quirky and thought-provoking. I loved Glory’s point of view, and I definitely related to her. She struggled with finding herself, figuring out how she fit into the world of her parents, friends and post-high school life. I thought her point-of-view was refreshing compared to some other characters I’ve read about lately and I just loved that Glory was not two-dimensional. She liked photography, was fascinated with death, and sometimes was prone to over-thinking. She felt like an actual human being, and A.S. King is the best at writing realistic characters. And somehow incorporating magic into their very-real lives. The plot of the book, despite how it seemed, left me shocked at times and was definitely fast-paced. Never a dull moment for sure! The romance in this book was practically non-existent but what romance was in Glory was fantastic, I loved it. In general, Glory O’Brien’s History of The Future is another great novel by A.S. King. Even if Glory O’Brien doesn’t seem like your type of book, I highly recommend taking a look at other of A.S. King’s other novels because they are all fantastic.
