Revolution 19

Revolution 19 - Gregg Rosenblum Despite earlier reviews I read about this book, I liked it.The basic storyline: Bots now control the cities and everyone in it. Citizens are micro-chipped and are trackable at all times. "Freeman's" still exist outside the cities in "Freeposts"...that is until the Bots either capture or kill them.Cass, Nick, Kevin and their parents are living in one such Freepost until one day the Bots come. The children manage to escape, but their parents are captured. They are taken to the nearest city for re-education where they will learn to live in the bot controlled environment.Cass and her brothers are determined to rescue their parents from the city which proves to be no easy task with "spherebots" patrolling the streets constantly, ready to call the "Petey's" at any sign of disturbance on suspicious behavior.They formulate a plan with the help of Lexi, Amanda, Farryn and Doc (who they met upon entering the city) to find their parents and escape the city once more....I found the plot very simple to follow and it moved along at a nice even pace. The ending left an opening for a sequel, but I wasn't thrilled with it.....The characters were all likable in their own way but wish a little more emphasis was placed on Cass. I felt she was slightly overlooked in the story as a whole.Overall, I enjoyed the concept of the novel and would look forward to reading a sequel........http://lostinmyyouth.blogspot.ca/2013/02/revolution-19-by-gregg-rosenblum.html
