The Alex Crow; Andrew Smith

The Alex CrowThe Alex Crow by Andrew Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This could have been a much stronger book had there been one less thing in it. The proximate future we're in here includes bionics, high-tech warfare and yet it's also familiar, with sectarian strife in the Middle East and small-town, backwoods people. Having the majority of this set in a "recovery" camp (for either tech-addicts or overeaters, depending on the session) and a long-ago Antarctic expedition doesn't help. To be honest, I skipped the journal entries.
