Beacon 23

Beacon 23: The Complete Novel (Beacon 23 #1-5)Beacon 23: The Complete Novel by Hugh Howey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's hard to describe my thoughts and feelings about this book. I was mesmerized by the metaphor of the lighthouse but I was disturbed by the characters.

I felt like this would be the perfect book for someone who loved Sci Fi and had a dark sense of humor. I love Sci Fi but I lack the darkness. The writing was very harsh but well done. This is not a book I would suggest to my mom. The language is strong and the themes are quite dark. The metaphors and the prose however, are beautiful.
