Nostalgic Rain: Galaxies Away By A.S. Altabtabai|Blog Tour & Review

Nostalgic Rain: Galaxies Away (Nostalgic Rain, #1)
Published on July 1st, 2017
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Pages: 324
Format: ePub

What seventeen-year-old Leland finds in the abandoned basement of his house is something he will never forget.

Leland lost his father when he was seven. Since then, he has successfully adapted to the awful life of being a student, the man of the house, and a father figure to his two younger siblings. All of that changes when he and his best friends stumble upon a secret in his deserted basement, and fall into another dimension with three moons, foggy woods, and an ancient castle-Oremanta.

Learning who he really is, how he came to this remote planet, and the shocking, ugly mystery of Oremanta aren't as bad as the quest he finds himself obligated to complete-killing someone he never thought he'd meet in Oremanta to save everyone.

My Thoughts

I received Nostalgic Rain for free in exchange for an honest review. This in no way, shape, or form affects my opinions of the book or my review.

Stop. Start. The overall pace of the book was slow. Given, there are numerous action scenes; however, they are brief and it might be another twenty-thirty more pages before it starts back up again. It was near the middle of the book when I began to fall away from the story. I had no ambition to want to continue reading. But I persevered. I won’t say that it was a complete waste of time trying to finish. I will say that it was a challenge. 

The character development was lacking in many different ways. There was little backstory regarding Leland and his friends. Often, they acted or said something out of character. I wish we could’ve gotten to know each of them a little bit more.

Death. Death. And more death. One this is for sure, don’t grow too attached to some of the characters. You may find yourself regretting it numerous times throughout the book.

The plot. Yes, there are many plot holes. But that is expected in science fiction. That’s why it’s called fiction. However, some of the situations (traveling to another planet, mostly) were kind of far-fetched, even for science fiction.
