Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)Illuminae by Amie Kaufman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I didn’t think I was going to like this because the formatting is BIZARRE and it’s 599 pages. But have you seen this book, guys? It’s gorgeous! So I bought it anyway (only $12 on Amazon!)!

The book is written as if it’s a collection of documents regarding the incident that took place on Kady’s planet and the ships the survivors evacuate on. There’s very little traditional book going on. It’s transcripts of instant messages, emails, computer files, and memos. I’ve never read anything like it… And I loved it.

The only thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars was AIDAN. AIDAN was annoying as all get out. It rambled on and waxed poetic about the meaning of life and other dumb shit. It was painful. Amie Kaufman must have written him. The Starbound Trilogy was equally trite.

Anyway, order this or run to your local bookstore now. This book is phenomenal and despite it’s almost 600 pages, you won’t be able to put it down.
