O.k….first things first here… I LOVE this book so far!!! The book I am talking about is of course “The Enclave” by Karen Hancock. We received it with the mail that had accumulated while we were gone on vacation to Wyoming for a family reunion. I started reading it this morning (we got back late Saturday night) and I have hardly been able to put it down since then!
I love the intrigue and the mystery and suspense in the book as well as the subject, science, in the book. I am only a couple of chapters past “Part two” in the book, and already I have raved about it to my mom and showed her the book, which she wants to borrow after I am done with it!
The book caught me at the first sentence about someone being an idiot… I wanted to know who this person was and why they (I did not know if it was a girl or guy yet) thought he was an idiot. From that first sentence I was intrigued and like I stated earlier, I could not put it down.
Lacey McHenry is a character that at times I empathize and other times I have sympathy for her…my feelings are still out whether or not I really like her as a lead character, but they are leaning towards liking her.
*Possible spoiler next (never sure if what I type is going to spoil it for someone or enhance the experience of the book!)
Her faith in God that she is not sure she can still have and the issues she struggles with on a daily basis of peer pressure, rejection, compromise of her beliefs, and other things she goes through make her a very believable character. I keep thinking of her as real.
As for Cameron….there is so much to be said that I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone. I might get into his character tomorrow.
