Book review - Bomb

Title: Bomb
Author: Sarah Mussi
Genre: thriller
Similar books: Rat Runners by Oisin McGann
                     BZRK by Michael Grant
Genesis just wants to get over her boyfriend, Naz. So she agrees to a blind date. That moment changes everything. When she wakes up, she's in a dark room and a strange vest is strapped to her body. A voice speaks to her through a device glued into her ear, telling her that she's wearing a bomb and if she doesn't do exactly as she is told it will detonate. Gen has just become and unwilling pawn of the Brightness.

My Opinion:
Just as a warning, it is very hard for me to talk about what makes this book wonderful without dipping into spoilers. If you want to skip the rest of my review, I'll understand. Zip past the next paragraph and just move on knowing I highly recommend this one.

Okay, for my complete review.

This is a very thrilling read. It has a great sense of tension and pacing. While we don't make a strong emotional connection with the characters the constant danger and fear will keep you reading. What blows me out of the water with this book is the ending. I quite literally yelled at this book when I finished it. It's very cinematic. Do you hear that Hollywood? Sarah Mussi has just written your next awesome movie. (And here comes the real spoiler. Last chance to scroll past it. You've been warned) Imagine what that would look like, the clock on the phone clicking over to 4:44 and the screen goes black. Delightfully infuriating. 

More Information: Bomb releases May 7th.
