Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Its unique storytelling approach and narrative structure is interesting, but “Afterworlds” does not do enough with its eccentricities to make it truly memorable. There is a good story here, but it’s largely buried beneath another, less enjoyable one.
