ARC (NetGalley) Review: There Is a Generation by W. H. Buzzard

There’s a lot more to adventure than mythical creatures and magical powers. Adventure could be set off with that one moment when the person walking through the door takes your breath away. It could be you finally having had enough of life giving you lemons.

It could also be a pair of friends setting fire to something they didn’t expect to, and running away in fear of the repurcussions.
There Is a Generation is as much adventure as it is about learning from mistakes. Its about learning to not take luxury for granted because you never know what fate has in store.
Reading this was sort of slow near the first quarter of it. Things were going slow, and I didn’t know if I cared enough to read the entire thing. After that, though, the story started to pick up pace. The foreshadowing was incredibly done. It reminded me more than once of Huck Finn, although I couldn’t quiet pinpoint where the familiarity was coming from until I’d read the author biography.
It was a breath of fresh air in the midst of my usual helping of fantasy, sci fi, and other mainstream genres. There was, however, a section that I felt was weighing the entire thing down. It was entertaining in a slapstick comedy kind of way, but the lack of character development annoyed me.
It’s a four stars from me.

That one star 'cause it could've been a bit better. Love it nonetheless!

And the ending. I’m itching to get my hands on the second book in the series.

When I close my eyes, I see myself as a writer. I see a pale blank page in front of me and feel a solid pen in my hand. I feel inspiration flowing through me, hear the words being whispered in my ears, ready to be written. And I see myself writing them. So, I write. And that is why I am here right now. To let the world know that I want to become better at this. That there is this unbelievably naive living in this corner of the world, who wants to have people help her become the best she can become. My focus is actually on fiction. I dream up stories in my sleep, literally. And I can't help but want to write them. Knowing English only as a second language is a drawback, though. I still try.
