“What would you do if you only had an hour to live?” Holly Holloway will take you on an electrifying journey through her last hour of life. While strapped to a ticking time bomb, in a darkened room, Holly tells a cryptic tale of terror and uncertainty.
Set in real time, Automic Number Sixty has sixty chapters. Each chapter takes the reader one minute, giving a genuine account of the last hour of Holly’s life. I have never seen a concept quite like the one Dave Johnston has created. It is thrilling and fast paced, making it impossible to put down. Each chapter flies by, creating a realm of mystery and panic.
While the plot didn’t intrigue me at first, I’ll say that I was blown away by Automic Number Sixty. The more I read, the more invested I became. There were moments of shock, humor and angst. I believe that this series could really take off and I look forward to reading the next installment.
I would love a bit more depth to the characters in the coming books. However, for the first book, Automic Number Sixty did exactly what I believe it was intended to do: stun the reader and entice them to beg for more of this series.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
