So... I've officially cleared out another book from my Kindle. Yippee, but there's plenty more to go.
Fall of Venus is a really interesting story, though certainly not my favorite by all means.
According to the title and the end (which I thought didn't make sense at first), I'm assuming the planet the story is set in is the planet Venus, which I find extremely cool. On this planet though, the planet has been getting hotter every year and people have to stay underground every summer just to keep themselves cooler. Sounds like actual Venus with it's 90+ times the atmosphere of Earth, right?
Well, that's just the basic premise. Eventually a virus wipes out most of the people on the planet, and Pollen McRae, our main character, is one of the survivors who manages to escape a refugee camp that isn't exactly what they say they are.
I find Pollen a really interesting character, but I really didn't like how she's so chatty. She's extremely random and babbles about everything, which I personally find some of it unnecessary because no one needs to know about bladders. That's just too much information and it's like tweeting that you're using the restroom. Does anyone need to know that? Noooo. I certainly don't, because why are you bringing your phone into the restroom of all places? No wonder said phone falls into the toilet.
