LIFEL1K3 (Lifelike #1) Reviews
I don’t even know where to begin.
It’s exactly what you’d expect from the co-author of The Illuminae Files (which I bloody love, by the way) - fast-paced and action-packed with brilliant characters, witty writing, big twists and the cruelest of cliffhangers. I don’t know how I will function until the next book comes out.
My favourite thing about this book, though, was the way it situated itself within the world - Hollywood is now known as “Holywood” (appropriate), it makes references to Pinocchi ...more
ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
“Metal or meat. Blood or current. Everyone deserves a choice.”
Gentle friends, I loved this. This was an absolute treat to read! Jay Kristoff’s writing and storytelling is so unique, but if you love it then you will love it with the sum of your being. This book was one of the best things I’ve ever read, and I instantly knew it would make my top books of 2018.
I recommend this with my whole heart for fans of Borderlan ...more

I am honored to have received a digital ARC from Random House and Netgalley to read and review. I wanted this so bad because Jay Kristoff is one of my favorite authors. I loved the Lotus Wars trilogy. I have loved the Nevernight Chronicle. I have really enjoyed the Illuminae Files. And now this. Let me tell you, it delivers . I am so happy to have this physical copy pre-ordered so I can read it again. And again.
I don't want to ...more
YOUR MIND IS NOT YOUR OWN.
YOUR BODY IS NOT YOUR OWN.
YOUR LIFE IS NOT YOUR OWN.
So I've been a fan of Kristoff's ever since I read Nevernight. And thank you to publishers for again providing me with a copy to read and review before publication.
Honestly, almost the whole time I was reading this book, I thought it was going to be three-star read at most. Because everything seemed pretty standard and by the books. But then the last 25% or so came along and just changed the game. And I, for one, am ...more
I've been wanting to read a Jay Kristoff book for ages. AGES! I was so sure that I was going to adore LIFELIK3--but I didn't. The writing was incredibly irritating, the characters were bland, and the story had too much drama. This book's basically Lauren Kate's Fallen with robots.
1. WRITING: My biggest problem with the book was the writing. The book uses a lot of slang/weird-ass jargon from a supposed future America, which I quickly grew tired of. It was hard for me to connect to, and was just o ...more
I don't have enough adjectives to describe this book. It is EVERYTHING I want in a story. I am simply astounded at the brilliance of this author.
I almost feel guilty giving this book five stars because they are not nearly enough to give credit to this story.
The plot revolves around the prickly issues of AI. Set in a post apocalyptic world, three corporations race to become the supreme world leader. One of them focuses resources on bioengineered lifeforms. Another throws all its power into electr ...more
