DawnRunnerAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Precisely Terminated Book ReviewJuly 29, 2011DawnRunnerAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Amanda Davis's science fiction novel Precisely Terminated captures the reader's attention from the opening chapter. Davis's clear, logical style of writing fills her pages with valor and adventure. However, the three main reasons this book has become one of my favorites it because of the book's dynamic and realistic characters, the fully-developed and detailed world, and the powerful examples of self-sacrifice and bravery.
Precisely Terminated has a cast of characters that display real personalities. From Iain to Alyssa, each character has been thoroughly developed, making them come to life on the pages. Perhaps the best example of an unforgettable character is Simon, the crotchety old librarian in Cillinese. Specific facial descriptions help the reader to picture Simon, and his habits and speech reveal a tender core under his crusty appearance. The protagonist, Monica, exhibits the traits of a dynamic character. While Monica, the protagonist, begins her quest as a somewhat self-centered girl, the reader enjoyed seeing her grow into a compassionate young woman who is willing to risk her life in order to free her people.
While the characters are vital to the brilliance of the story, the book could not be the same without the fully-developed world Amanda Davis has created. Although some worlds set in the future often contain loopholes and unexplained devices, the world of Precisely Terminated is very developed and has been thought through. The transportation, social classes, and occupations are extremely clear, making the novel understandable for any reader and set the stage for an exciting plot.
Lastly, this science fiction story demonstrates striking examples of love and self-sacrifice. Perhaps the two best areas that show this are at the very beginning and end of the book. Faye, a character any reader will view as noble, shows her fierce love for Monica by dying and letting the young girl escape from the gas-filled chambers. This strong emotion helps to make Monica a character the reader can admire. The reader's admiration for Monica climaxes when, although Monica loses part of her fingers and later nearly her life, she continues on in her desperate search to do what Faye did for herâ€”to save the people of Cillinese from death.
Because of the characters, the setting, and the lessons one can learn from Amanda Davis's masterful writing, Precisely Terminated is a novel all can savor.
