I’m going to be honest – this book wasn’t great. I was expecting a lot more than I got. It seems like your typical plot, a bunch of young people bundled up inside a mega store while all hell breaks loose outside. And that’s the problem, it was a typical plot.
So the kids are bundled up safe and sound. Well, almost. There’s obviously quite a bit of tension, and when outside factors start to leak in (literally) things get a little bit hairy in there.
I picked up this book expecting a lot, it sounded just like my sort of read. I’m not even sure what made me dislike it. It may be that the characters acted so insanely stupid. I mean it’s the definition of an emergency, and they’re being idiots about it. Plus the fact that I could tell what was going to happen from the off.
So to summarise, I didn’t love it, didn’t hate it. Monument 14 was a solid 3/5. Ish…
