Review of Chimpanzee by Darin Bradley
I got this book awhile back. And now I am regretting that I did not pick it up immediately and read it, because Darin built a new world, even though some element were still the same the world was completely different.
This book made me think, and then re-think again multiple times. At first I didn't understand why it was called Chimpanzee (As some of you might know I don't read blurbs. Ever. Because they spoil all of the fun of finding out the plot by myself.) But as I read on I understood.
Darin's writing style is new, fresh and something I really needed. I had lost hope of finding a true dystopian novel that would truly make me think. I must agree that books like Hunger Games, and Divergent did make me think a little but they are too predictable and even though I enjoyed them I knew what the next move of the characters would be. It nearly got to the point where it nearly became boring. (But I am a hopeless romantic so I just needed to read their love stories.) However, Chimpanzee is different. There is no hopeless love story, or two love-struck teenagers fighting against all odds to conquer their love, hell, there isn't even a love triangle. And that is why I loved the book. The plot and the world were new. I did not know what to expect and everything was a surprise.
I must say that Darin did an excellent job on his novel, I might even buy Noise and see whether it is just as amazing.
