Book Review – Take me Tomorrow by Shannon A. Thompson

Author- Hazel

Take me Tomorrow is a Young Adult Dystopian story following Sophia Gray, the female protagonist. She lives with her father and a woman called Lyn and Lyn’s son Falo. The story begins when Sophia comes across a boy named Noah in the forest behind her home.

The plot of the book is centered around a clairvoyant and hallucinogenic drug called Tomo. It has caused an ongoing war between ‘The State’ (this story’s governing body) and  those who are using or promoting the drug.

Take me Tomorrow is a refreshing take on the Dystopian genre and I did enjoy the story. It has an interesting plot, is well written and is action packed.

As I said, I enjoyed the story but I didn’t love it.

I needed more character development, all the male characters were similar as were all the female ones too. They needed a bit more individuality in order for me to feel anything for them.

I also would have liked more world-building. More history as to why the world was the way it was, more about the governing body ‘The State’, more about the social issues surrounding the story. It felt vague and needed expanded on.

And I was left with some questions;

Who was Phelps?

What happened to Broden?

What happened between Noah and Anthony prior to the story?

Because I was left with all these questions, it made me wonder, is there going to be another book, is this the first in a series?

So in conclusion, like I said earlier I enjoyed the story, the premise was interesting but I needed more of everything, especially the world-building.

I would recommend this story to lovers of Young Adult Dystopian novels.

 

This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Thank you for reading Take Me Tomorrow! There is a sequel – Take Me Yesterday – in place, and it answers the questions you have. :] But the publication isn’t guaranteed. Reviewing and sharing like this helps a lot, so thank you again.
