I really found it confusing and it didn’t really draw me in. I didn’t even know what I was looking at until about half way through the book.
I had never read Chris Beckett’s first novel, Dark Eden, when I began reading Mother of Eden. That being said, I was pretty confused in the beginning. I had a hard time understanding what the characters were talking about, but the more that I read the book the more everything started to click. It was an interesting read that kept me wondering what could possibly happen next, and was a refreshing change of pace from some of the other books I have recently read. This books was described as a scifi, but I would probably say that it is more of a fantasy novel. I didn’t really find that anything was described well enough for it to be a scifi, but my opinion may have changed if I had read Dark Eden first. Overall it was entertaining and there are parts of me that still question what happened after the book ended.
