“Oblivion” Book Review

Overall, Oblivion, by Sasha Dawn, was an average book. It wasn’t terrible, nor amazing.

The book was quite slow and was dragged out a lot. Despite being moderately long, I got through it relatively quickly as the words were large. The first half of the book took me a while to get through because of how boring it was, but the second half was more interesting as more secrets were revealed.

This book has some peaks of intensity, but overall, I was bored throughout most of the book. However, I thought the protagonist, Callie, was, at times, interesting, as she had graphophobia. I’ve never heard about or read a book that centered around the main character having graphophobia. The concept was very intriguing and the execution of Callie’s graphophobia was very captivating. That being said, I wish the story was told through multiple points of view because Callie’s point of view could be tedious at times. Other than her graphophobia, there’s nothing else to her.

The writing style of the book was okay, but I’ve read better. Her writing didn’t capture my attention as much as it could’ve. It might be interesting to some people, but I could fall asleep reading it. I would not recommend this book to people who get bored easily and/or who don’t enjoy slow stories.
