Book Review: Pulse by Patrick Carman (Book #1 Pulse Trilogy)

Where I Bought : eBook
Price :
Rating : 4/5 stars

I was thinking of reading Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy before it gets turned into movies like The Hunger Games, Divergent or The Maze Runner (hmm… that’s a lot of YA books being adapted recently).

Before I begin I would like to express my recent opinion on these YA trilogy books. They have lots of points in common and seemed to fall into a similar plot.

  • Walls — literally or not —  being built barring the remaining civilization from the new world
  • A group of people who doesn’t fit in the norms
  • Rise of the rebellions toppling villains / evil authority
  • Obstacles presented to the characters and they have to break free from their internal struggle to emerge victorious

Walls in the Insurgent movie (2nd part in Divergent trilogy)

Maze walls in the Maze Runner (1st part in Maze Runner trilogy)

Pretty much sum it up 😛

Camera Lucida — Autumn Lane

I wish to have experienced autumn at least once in my life.

I could picture the wondrous scenery of nature changing colours into various shades of brown, orange and leaving the last hint of green behind.

While there’s no autumn in Malaysia, here’s a picture of a decoration flower which has colours that would make me imagine a sweet romantic autumn.

Travel Trinkets : Postcards from Macau

Postcards from Macau commemorating the places I’ve visited.
Unforgettable, the day I stepped foot on this land was a miscalculated day.
The weather was very cold, out of expectation.
Well at least we don’t have to explore under sweltering hot sun.

In response to “Travel Trinket and Memories” hosted by Leanne every Thursday on her blog NihongoJapango.
