For fans of the hunger games, battlestar galactica, and blade runner comes the first book in the partials sequence, a fast-paced, action-packed, and riveting. “we need to find out why,” kira insisted “one of our scouts may have been a partial—” “or he may simply have been interrogated in the field,” said mkele “a tortured soldier is a simpler explanation, and therefore a more likely one, than a widespread infiltration of our entire society” —partials he's probably right consider. Why did i read this book: i love dan wells' john cleaver trilogy (i am not a serial killer made my longlist of notable reads of 2010), so when i learned inevitably, partials draws comparisons to battlestar galactica – you've got a flawed, decimated human society with just a few thousand survivors, living.
The cover of dan well's partials depicts the back of a dark-haired girl of ambivalent skin color looking out over a wasteland nothing in the summary indicates that there are people of color in the book to the jaded reader, partials might very well be yet another book in which people of color have not.
Here i come with my gender stereotyping and i'm sure there will be other female readers who'll love this book and disagree with me but despite the protagonist being female and the cover featuring a teen girl, dan wells appears to have written a boy book the lengthy descriptions and idle conversations were dull.
