No child of mine
Olga Gibbs, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Publish)

In tone with the acclaimed works of George Orwell and drawing on my personal experience of growing up in Soviet Russia, this is a story of a father’s journey to save his child from a totalitarian regime, who is in order to bury the truth prepared to exterminate an entire generation.
Plot/Idea: 10 out of 10
Originality: 9 out of 10
Prose: 7 out of 10
Character/Execution: 10 out of 10
Overall: 9.00 out of 10

Assessment:

Plot: The author crafts a gripping plot that stays in the reader's mind long after the story is finished.

Prose/Style: The writing here is mostly effective but would benefit from a heavy edit to eliminate awkward phrasing, run-on sentences, and odd phrasing.

Originality: The government-dominant world depicted here is heavily reminiscent of the Hunger Games' Capitol, which controls every aspect of how people live. Yet the author is able to expand upon this foundation to create a unique and original setting.

Character Development/Execution: The author does an excellent job with character development even in the strange and oppressive world depicted. The players are well-defined and their positions on events are evident and well understood.
