Illuminae Review



By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae is not your typical book. It is written in the form of recovered documents (like Instant Messages, emails, interview and schematics).

I have never before read a book like this. I defiantly found this writing style very unusual, and not many authors would be able to pull it off.

The page designs were gorgeous. I could not have thought of a better way to show a book. And they complimented the story extremely well.

The actual story was extremely enjoyable, but due to Illuminae being written in the way that it was, the only character that I connected with is ADIAN, the Artificial Intelligence.

I would recommend Illuminae to someone who wants to read a book that is not written in a normal way, as well as YA and sci-fi lovers.

      I have not read These Broken Stars yet but I plan on reading them soon! And yes Illuminae is quite hard core sci fi but that’s is my preference
