Review: If you like unique and beautiful books, space, romance, crazy computers and pink hair, then you´ll love Illuminae.

I loved this book a LOT! The whole idea is really unique, the book is build of files, pictures, messages and other stuff like that. I have never read a book like this before and if I ever do it again, i´m sure it will only feels like a bad copy.

This book broke my heart, made my laugh and made me stay up reading for too long.

The characters where interesting, although I would love to get to know more about them and the place where they lived.

I´m really excited to read the rest of this trilogy and see how everything will turn out and i recommend everyone to read this book if it sounds like something that you would like!


Rating: 5/5 stars.

Hope you guys liked the review, and comment your thoughts about the book if you have read it.
