Arch Conspirator by Veronica Roth 🌟 Arc Review πŸŒŸ

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

I am really conflicted over this book and I just don’t know how to feel!

I love it as a retelling of Antigone, especially the ending. I thought Roth made Antigone’s character even stronger than in the original by sophocles. Antigone is originally a play by Sophocles. It’s short but with a lot of depth to quickly delve into during any lit. class.

There were some huge changes and this is where I have some unanswered questions. They are living in a world that is dying from radiation, but they are in a safe, protected spot and are focusing on continuing our species. But, this all gets strange to me. How are they safe from the radiation? I loved the important details of what women had to do to keep up this world and how it relates to today and what women are facing, but I don’t understand the whole extractor and build a baby thing. I like it. I just needed explanations. Just some background. I feel like I started blind and I ended with just enough light in the distance to truthfully admit that I do see something. These are great, brilliant ideas. But, if it was expanded upon, then this book would have been a showstopper instead of just passable.

These are all my own opinions and I urge all fellow readers to read and find out for yourself. Also, definitely take a minute to read a summary of Antigone prior to picking this up.

Out February 21, 2023!
