Dissolution Review



By Lee S. Hawke

I received a free copy of Dissolution via XpressoBookTours in exchange for my honest opinion.

Dissolution is a dystopian novella that is not all that it seems. Instead of it being a ‘fun read’, even though it is, it directly and willingly makes you question ideas that you may have been brought up with.

In this community, everyone before they turn 18 is to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. For what, it was not clear enough for me too understand (that is one of the only things that I do not like about Dissolution). When Madeline’s name does not even get called at the auction (she had humongous expectations as to what she was going to do), and when she arrives home she finds two suits at her house see does the only thing that anyone would do, she bolts.

Dissolution is meant to be a thought-provoking novella, which it defiantly is. Throughout this entire novella, it is easy to put yourself into Madeline’s shoes and understand her decisions and reasoning behind everything.

Like I said earlier, I do wish that the different companies were explained better as none of the 5 were explained as to what they actually are doing, or supposed to be doing. Essentially the world-building was lacking, and I believe that if Hawke had built up this interesting world a tad stronger then I would have appreciated it more.
