Short Story Review Sunday [Monday Edition]: In Time


Gabe’s life has been devastated in the wake of the economic crash. The only option left for someone like him to escape his tragic past is to leave his small town behind and to attempt to become a skip tracer. This already almost impossible task is made all the more difficult by his first score, a young girl who won’t speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine


Gabe is a better character than Liam, I guess. But again I can still hardly pick up any outshining personalities of his own. We will also see Zu in this novella. And truth to be told, Zu is a much better character than Ruby. Although she's not outspoken and really quiet, she makes a very interesting character. I mean, a not-talking Yellow is intriguing. And she's older than her age. So yeah, she might actually be my favorite character in the whole series.

In Time is slightly better than The Darkest Minds, but there are similar flaws between the two and I don't find myself enjoying this novella much more than The Darkest Minds. I still will read Never Fade. Although I'm a little hesitant about this.

Rating: 6.5/10
