It should have been a short suspended-animation sleep. But this time Rose wakes up to find her past is long gone-- and her future full of peril.
Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose-- hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire-- is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes-- or be left without any future at all.
This is a really crazy book. Totally awesome and taking me for a different kind of read, I really enjoyed it.
1. Dystopian. I really enjoyed the dystopian future of this world. The way they talk, the future of families and education, diseases that ran rampant all played nicely in this story.
2. Love. I have to admit that love interest in quite interesting and very dramatic. I didn’t realize it at first, but when a certain piece of information is dropped it was,”OMG!” I think the author did a great job in creating such great dimensions and depth to the story with the love both on the past and future.
3. Realization. There is certain moments in the book that really brought clarity to my eyes. After learning what her parents were really doing, I knew without a doubt that I wanted more. No, correction. Needed more.
I would say more, but I’m afraid I spoil it all for you. Take it from me and know that this book is awesome. A bit slow in the beginning, but other than that, awesome. A Long Long Sleep is a dark truly original dystopian that will blow you away.
I give it 5 BITES!
