My review for The Future of London (Books 1-3) by Mark Gillespie, 4/5 stars.
I like to read books that take me out of my comfort zone, and I’ll try most genres. The idea of this story appealed to me and I decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised.
The story started off a bit slowly and it took me a while to get into it. But when it started to pick up, I found myself getting more and more involved in the story and the characters. I liked the way the point of view went from news presenters sitting in their cosy studios to the characters out on the streets, experiencing the harsh reality of London under siege.
From the second half of L-2011 up to Ghosts of London, the story really drew me in and I couldn’t put it down. It becomes a frightening look into a not so uncertain future, where reality and entertainment blur into each other with a terrible outcome. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
