2022 Book Review: Enclave

Enclave by Ann Aguirre

YA Science Fiction, 2011 by Feiwel and Friends, 259 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • The fight scenes are awkward and choppy. 
  • We’ve heard this story before. It has parts of so many dystopian stories that I’ve read and nothing overly original stands out to me. 
  • The romance ARC felt forced and awkward.   Then the triangle aspect was even more forced and awkward. 

What I Did Like:

  • The way the characters were named was cool. I enjoyed attempting to guess what object may have led to the naming of new characters. 
  • The ending works as a lead in to what I assume is a sequel that already exists. It makes it pretty clear this part of the story is over and hints at what may be coming next. 
  • I do like Deuce as a character. She’s strong, smart, and focused. She puts other people ahead of herself and isn’t embarrassed to admit when something is new to her. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Dystopian fans who want that mesh of underground society meets zombies meets survival story. 

My Rating: 3 Stars
