I finished reading Feedback by Robison Wells yesterday. It is the second book of the book Variant. I liked Variant. It ended in a cliffhanger and I was a little mad that Overdrive didn’t have the second book. I had planned on buying the book until a few months ago I looked to see if Overdrive had the second one and they did!!

Variant is about a boy named Benson Fisher. He wanted to try out a private high school that sounded really nice and cool. But he soon found out that the school is not really a high school at all. There were “students,” but no adults. Which means no teachers. The high school was like a prison because you had bracelets that unlocked doors. And the only time you got to go outside was to play paint-ball. Then the real secret came out that some of the “students” were robots. Benson decided to try to escape.

Feedback is about Benson escaping. Benson and a girl named Becky arrive at a town. The town is full of humans from the school. The humans are connected to the robots. They have implants in them. Benson still wants to escape. The school still wants Benson and Becky. Becky gets kidnapped by the leader of the school. Benson goes to save her. In doing that, he learns that the leader has robots everywhere and wants to replace humans with robots. My guess to take over the world. It is hinted that the leader is an alien which escapes. The exposure of the robots would cause worldwide panic.

I liked this book up until the end. I hated that this ended up being an alien book. Now I’m reading Game of Lives by James Dasher (the third book of the Mortality Doctrine book series).

Thursday night I finished reading Variant by Robison Wells. It is part of a book series. Variant is the first book. The second book is called Feedback.

The book is a little slow at first, but it got really good later on. Variant is about a boy named Benson Fisher. He is a foster kid. He applies to a scholarship for a private school. When he arrives at the school, he learns the private school is no ordinary school. There are no adults in the school. The “students” are the “teachers” and “workers.” But there is another dark secret attached to the school that Benson finds out about.

Like I said it is slow at first, but I really did like this book. I will be reading the second book soon. The reason it is slow because he mostly talked about escaping, but he doesn’t until the end of the book. I thought this book reminded me of a movie made many years ago. But I was wrong. The movie was of aliens not what this book is like. The movie I’m taking about is The Faculty. It also reminded me of the movie The Village with the same kind of fear.

I do think Variant could really good movie too. If you want a book book to read check out Variant by: Robison Wells on – Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices
