For the Love of Literature

As a bibliophile, my passion for books coalesces with a love of writing, and writing book reviews allows me to share literature with the world.

Generation of the Last Hour by Rochele Rosa

Written with a light Christian nuance, “Generation of the Last Hour” is a rather unique addition to the dystopian genre. Although this is a clean read and there is a refreshing lack of profanity or sex, I would not consider it a feel-good story. The main characters are children, the narrator being 15-year-old Raquelle Granger, who initially run their own underground city in the aftermath of a world war that began generations earlier and continues to rage. As such, there are disturbing incidents and encounters, but with mostly nongraphic violence. The story throughout is bleak and resembles a Holocaust narrative, but with an undercurrent of hope. Overall, it was interesting, although the ending came quite suddenly and a bit too neatly.
