Incarceron, by Catherine Fisher: 3/5

Edit: Art updated to look more like trees, less like random blobs!

Inarceron. There's more than one kind of prison. 3 stars. Catherine Fisher. Best Thing: Interesting Concept. Worst Thing: Incomplete. In a lot of ways it feels like half a book

Second worst thing: The solution to one of the big main mysteries wasn’t very mysterious at all. It’s kind of a letdown when plot points are that obvious.

    I enjoyed it but I agree on both of your worst things. As to it feeling like half a book, I believe there is a sequel (or at least one planned) although I haven’t read it yet. Still, I prefer books to stand on their own more.

      Yeah; I don’t mind a series, but I prefer each book to have its own complete plot within the larger story arc (like the Harry Potter series). This one didn’t really do that, and I also felt there was the problem of a somewhat incomplete world. I didn’t get a good idea of either of the two main landscapes of the story.
