    Eloquent writing; but nothing happens

    I know you're thinking... why only 3 stars? It's more like 3.5 stars; but only because I get that it's very deep and you could write a bunch of analysis papers on it. But that's just not enough in a book for. Good Morning, Midnight is one of those "my teacher made me read it" books. It's written beautifully, which in turn means it's pretty boring. With less than 10 character over two storylines we should know and love every character right? Sadly no. I found none of the characters interesting or relatable (and it's not because I like people, trust me). It feels instead like the characters are a form of computer or AI that experience a couple genuinely human experiences and then goes back to being it's boring, calculated, uninteresting self. If you thought Gravity was the best movie ever you will probably like this book. It's not a bad book. It's elegantly written but it's certainly not a book I'd want to read again or that I am excited to share and tell people about. If you need relatable characters, plot, or action go read The Martian (again) as there's more action in two pages of The Martian than there is in Good Morning, Midnight. That said, if you are looking for a book all about themes of loneliness, survival instinct, communing with nature, and/or despair this is the book for you. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. My opinion and words above are truthfully and not skewed by the publishers kindness to provide me with a copy to read and review.

    This one will stay with you

    I really enjoyed this read. You really feel a connection to the characters and an affinity toward their successes and failures. It left me feeling a little sad and haunted, but hopeful as well.

    Beautiful

    This was an absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking, albeit quiet, look at the end of the world.

    Beautiful setting, but slow plot

    I love books set in space, like, The Martian, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, Do You Dream of Terra-two?, so I was really hoping that I was going to love this book much more than I actually did. The plot is on the slower side. The POV goes back and forth between our 2 protagonists, with one character on a ship with 6 other people and another on Earth pretty much surrounded by nothing but nature, not a whole lot can happen. There are great and lengthy descriptions into the environment, and it paints a beautiful picture, but it's not what I was there for. We know about as much as the characters do about the faith of the Earth - since this is an apocalyptic novel, and the end fell a little short for me - the plot twist was predictable, sorry. Augustine is great when it comes to surviving the environment and carries us along in his pocket. We know his days are numbered and we live it out with him, While Sully was hard to connect to. She spent a lot of time remembering her family she left behind but not really growing from it. Even in real hardship, in times of real grief, she was really disconnected. The book itself has a great flow. Again, Brooks-Dalton does great transferring you to the environment, and it's a fairly easy read, but I was left wishing for more action... more emotion. I'm sorry to everyone who liked this book. I am so happy I gave it a chance!

    You'll Want to Buy This One

    I gasped aloud at the twists near the end. They took my breath away. Loved this book. Will read it again very soon and can't wait for the movie.
