Book Review: The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

To be honest, this book didn’t blow me away.  It didn’t grab my attention like the hype suggested until half way through the book.  But after that, I found it quite engrossing.

Who is Jenna Fox?  She wakes up from a coma after a horrendous accident her parents don’t even talk about.  She can’t remember anything from before the accident, but she remembers details about the French Revolution.  Who is she?  During this book, Jenna will find out more about herself than she could ever imagine…

Set in the future, this book combines science fiction with young adult fiction and adds in a smidgen of teen romance.

I liked it.  Pearson’s writing style is easy to get used to but I’m not a big fan of the absence of chapters.  The book is written like a diary – Jenna telling things as they are.  Her style is excellent – it feels like what I am reading is what a person with no memory would say.

In terms of plot, I found it a bit lacking.  The ending was terrible.  In a book that took so long to pan out, it ended in a snap.  It seems like Pearson had to hurry to end it to meet a deadline.

This is a great read.  For some reason the books I review have something to do with identity, and this one is no exception.

Rating: 3.5/5
