Imagine a prison so vast that it contains cells and corridors, forests, cities and seas. Imagine a prisoner with no memory, sure he came from Outside - though the prison has been sealed for centuries and only one man has ever escaped.
Imagine a girl in a manor house, in a society where time in forbidden, held in a 17th-century world run by computers, doomed to an arranged marriage, tangled in an assassination plots she dreads and desires.
One inside, one outside.
But both imprisoned.
I was really disappointed with Inacrceron. I wanted it to be much better than it was.
I have to admit that I had to force myself to read Incarceron, and I gave up after 220 pages. This is the first time for a seriously long time that I haven’t been able to finish a book. I suppose I should give it some credit for that!
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what made me dislike it. I guess it’s a mixture of these things: I didn’t really feel a connection with either Claudia or Finn, the Era set as the 1600s in a world of amazingly advanced technology that was very strange and I really just didn’t get it. I mean, I’m usually good with weird, but this, it just didn’t make sense to me!
Although I didn’t like Incarceron, I think that lots of you will and I’m curious as to what you’ll think of it.
