Shadows and Dreams By Matthew Cody|Review

Shadows and Dreams (ReMade #1.1)
Published by Serial Box Publishing on September 14th, 2016
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Pages: 32
Format: eGalley

You live. You love. You Die. Now RUN. ReMade is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take readers past the boundaries of time, space, and even death. This is the 1st episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Matthew Cody. Holden Black never imagined his crush knew his name, much less that he’d suddenly be driving her to a party. But life can change in a second, especially when you’re 16. A look. A flash of headlights. A scream. What do you do when the unexpected jumps straight to the unbelievable, the dream becomes a nightmare, and waking changes everything except your heart’s desire? ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in this exciting serial adventure.

My Thoughts

NetGalley Review
Interesting concept. Short story. Completely confusing.
Looking back at the beginning, I wondered how on Earth the characters found themselves staring at the Earth. Honestly, the story was kind of all over the place. Each scene lasted a few pages, which I understand it was done quickly in order to get the story rolling. And considering that this book is divided up into episodes, there really isn't room for too much excess fluff. 
It was a quickly, short read if there ever was one. I downloaded this book on a whim from NetGalley. Though I won't say it was a complete waste of time, the book does have its dull moments.
Reading a book in 'episodes' is a completely new concept to me. I did like that you could read one part of it in once sitting. But in other terms, the episodes are basically chapters large amounts of time passing.
I wasn't a huge fan of this and probably won't continue reading it. However, if you enjoy a quick little story here and there, then by all means, go for it!
