Book Review: Disconnect (Divided Worlds #1) by Imran Siddiq

Description

Disconnect is now available in full for FREE from Amazon (UK, COM), iBookstore, and Nook. Parts 2 and 3 to the Divided Worlds Trilogy are due in July 2013.

Zachary, a 16-year old Underworlder digs in waste to find anything worth bartering. That is the rule of scavenging.

When he discovers footage of an Overworld girl, Rosa, he’s intrigued by her sorrow and breaks the rule.

That decision changes his life, and he will suffer for it.

Zachary must overcome worthlessness, prejudice, and not let a twisted lie devour the new reason that he survives; Rosa.

In space, love had boundaries.

Written for young readers and adults, Imran Siddiq’s debut ‘Disconnect’, a Young Adult Science Fiction with Romance, begins a trilogy entwining fear, corruption and desire.

Told from the viewpoint of a male, the novel addresses real-world issues such as fighting injustice, understanding the urge for change, and uncovering secrets that affect lives.

Review

A very well written futuristic thriller of dystopia and romance. The romance element is very chaste. I was drawn to the Underworld and the war that followed. The narrative was very visual and the characters very distinct. This is not my usual genre but I was very absorbed by the story and was hooked until the end.

Very suitable for YA and a thrilling read.
