Review - Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum

Revolution 19
By Gregg Rosenblum
Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected publication: January 8th 2013
by Harper Teen

Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.

Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.

Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else. With a dynamic cast of characters, this surefire blockbuster has everything teen readers want—action, drama, mystery, and romance. Written by debut novelist Gregg Rosenblum, this gripping story shouldn’t be missed.

Revolution 19 is one of those books that the plot is not out of this world and unique, but it flows nicely, has great characters, and keeps you interested until the very last page. It has enough action in every chapter to keep you turning the pages, and tons of mystery and suspense. The robots didn’t scare me, though, nor did I feel that it was really that hard to defeat the robots.

I guess I just wasn’t sold on the whole “Robots took over the world” concept. This is what I mean by the plot not being out of this world. It’s a light Sci/Fi read honestly, which I am okay with since I am just now stepping into the sci/fi world.

Even though I didn’t find the story to be unique, it was entertaining enough to finish. I loved the three main characters, Kevin, Nick, and Cass. They were family, friends, and the closeness they had with each other was a nice change for me. Lately it seems most of the books I read a brother, or some type of family member is betraying the other. I think the bond these three characters have is what really kept me reading.

I rate it 3.5 stars and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I recommend this book; especially if you’re looking for a light, and fast read.
