I enjoyed Zero Day – I think it was definitely a good thing that the politics were so minor, since I’m feeling very political these days!
- characters – loved Adie and felt like the portrayal of her brainwashing was fairly well done. I liked the difficulty she had trusting her parents or believing in them.
- I like the narration a lot
What could have worked better:
- I think it required a lot of belief in situations I just can’t see going through. President’s daughter returned mysteriously and without any harm and there’s only one person who doesn’t trust that?
- The school situation was weird. Quaker school? For political kids? Really? (maybe that’s been real in the past, but wow it felt weird!)
- Her mom spent years creating this program and Adie can change it in one night? If she’s so good – why do they need her to steal it? Why can’t she just write it too? And since when are so many people skilled hackers? Geez!
- It’s left open for a book 2 but for me this should have been a stand alone… I don’t see wanting to keep going, even if I did enjoy it.
Even though Berls loved the characters, Zero Day didn't quite hit the mark for Berls. 3/5 stars! Click To Tweet
