Dark Eden

Dark Eden - Chris Beckett ** 2.5 Stars **

I am finding it very difficult to write a review for this book.

On the one hand it was good, the story was interesting, the world-building was great. The whole idea of humans living on a different planet with stories and myths about life on Earth was really interesting. And I loved how some of the words have gotten distorted over time, like 'Secret Ree' = Secretary, 'Veekle' = vehicle and 'Any Virsry' = Anniversary.

On the other hand, after reading half the book it started getting a bit frustrating and 'sameish'. John, one of the main characters, seems to go against everyone else just because that's what he does, which I found to be annoying after a while.

It was still a good story though, and had some very interesting aspects.
