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 😛
