Illuminae, written by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, is a vibrant book that will inspire you to read it to the end. Kady Grant lives in the year 2575 on a planet with an illegal mining colony. One day when Kady goes to school, her planet gets invaded by the rival corporation to the company that oversees the mining corporation on her planet. Everyone has to evacuate on their three spaceships: the Alexander, the Hypatia, and the Copernicus. They are chased by the spaceship that attacked their planet, and the Artificial Intelligence (AI) unit that helps run their ships gets a virus and starts malfunctioning and killing the people that it’s supposed to be protecting. Then Kady decides to bring to light what really happened.
Illuminae is a great book with an interesting format style that might confuse you at first, but it is definitely worth sticking with it. Each page is different from comics to texts to emails to surveillance footage. I really liked Illuminae because it’s an incredibly intriguing book that will make you not want to stop reading it. And it broadened my knowledge about different styles of writing. Illuminae is a science fiction novel with creative art and pictures made out of words. I definitely recommend you read Illuminae. It is one of my favorite books.
