This book was so over-hyped. I don't usually write reviews for books that I rate 2 stars are lower (this is the 3rd), but I was so disappointed with this story, that I feel like I need to state my case.
When ROZZUM unit 7134 is activated on the island, she has no way of knowing that she does not belong there. She's been programmed to learn, so she immediately begins to learn. She learns to find shelter and how to survive in the wild. But none of the things living on the island, Roz included, expected her to thrive in the wild.
I have a lot of thoughts about this book. It was entertaining, and I read the entire thing in one day as I sat and waited for my bed to be delivered. I feel like there are many elements that make All That She Can See and improvement on Carrie Hope Fletcher's debut novel, On The Other Side (review here) but there are also so many other things that she did with this one that I felt like would have benefited from a stronger editorial hand.
"The sofa wasn't there on Monday but it was there on Tuesday." River, Freak, and Fiona discover a rare zucchini-coloured crayon in the sofa that mysteriously appeared at their bus-stop, and it quickly puts them in the centre of a dastardly plot to take over the world. Because of course it does.
This book was super hit and miss for me. There were parts that I really enjoyed and appreciated, but there were just as many parts that made me uncomfortable. The overall reading experience was mediocre at best.
