eBook Õ The End of Ordinary æ Edward Ashton

Drew Bergen is an Engineer He builds living things one gene at a time He’s also kind of a doofus Six years after the Stupid War a bloody inconclusive clash between the Engineered and the UnAltered that’s a dangerous combination Hannah is Drew’s greatest project modified in utero to be just a bit than human She’s also his daughterD Three Days in April Ashton's debut immediately went on my favorites list and while this one didn't make it there it's still a great book The End of Ordinary is set in the same world six years later but with an entirely new cast although some scenes are obliuely referenced This time around Mr Ashton chose to go the YA route with some success though I admit the scenes about the father are my faves As usual his strengths and major selling points are his humor and tech expertise ie he can explain retroviruses while making you laugh D Where it fell short was in the overall story The individual elements and characters were great but somehow didn't uite gel the way 3DiA did In the afterword he mentioned something about this being a series of blog posts which makes sense That being said it's a super fast read with plenty of hilarity to keep you entertained So anyhowfunny smart fresh faces in the same world but dinged a star because it felt a little loose around the edges Still very much worth your time and I'm curious to see how Ashton continues to develop this world Free egalley from Harper Voyager in return for an honest review

Edward Ashton æ The End of Ordinary mobi

The End of OrdinaryEads with corporate goons and government operatives hunting them and millions of lives in the balanceEnergetic and bitingly satirical The End of Ordinary is a riveting near future thriller that asks an important uestion if we can’t get along when our differences are barely skin deep what happens when they run all the way down to the bon Ashton does a really good job handling multiple first person viewpoints something I normally dislike immensely in a novel He also asks some very interesting and appropriate uestions about race and class without being too heavy handedThe novel isn't uite as funny or clever as 3 Days in April And there are a few characters and events that feel very contrived Also a couple of the viewpoints are from characters that are needed for the story but don't move it along Those factors hold it back from 5 stsrs but it is definitely worth reading
