Synopsis: Who is Jenna Fox? Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn't remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?Sci-fi is probably one of my favorite genres because it thrills me. It scares me more than horror novels. I think it's the possibility that the events in the book are actually kind of probable. That is definitely the case with The Adoration of Jenna Fox. Technology is so superior nowadays, who knows how much scientists actual know--you know, secretly?
This is one of those rare books with boring characters that I still like. I empathized with Jenna because the confusion of forgotten memories would definitely drive people bananas. But Jenna's monologue was just plain, dull, robotic even. All the characters were sort of like that. Nothing special, nothing to cause extreme emotions within me.
However, I still like this book. The story itself was very good and I could tell Mary E. Pearson put mountains of work and research into this novel. It was logical and realistic. Although the concept of the novel seemed far fetched, it's actually not. This book really makes you think.
For the plot, I don't really think there was a roller coaster plot. It wasn't dramatic. It wasn't intense. It was a bit monotone, but it was intriguing! For the first half of the book, you are dying to know what happened to Jenna after the accident. Or--even earlier--what the accident even was! For the second half, you want to know what Jenna's going to do. How is she going to deal with the information she now possesses? Very mysterious, very captivating. It's more than enough to keep readers reading.
The Adoration of Jenna Fox, although falling flat in some aspects, was an absorbing and well-written story with a realistic future that makes you truly think.
