The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

The Thousandth Floor was absolutely phenomenal! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this at BookCon, in addition to meeting the author of this book, the amazing Katharine McGee! Go to your local bookstore this August and do yourself a favor by buying a copy! I have no doubt that this book will become a franchise!

The Thousandth Floor takes place approximately 100 years in the future. But no, it's not a dystopia, and that's what makes this book so unique. In the future McGee has created, it [the future] is not a bad place, it's just a different place. After all, we have had one hundred years to become more technologically advanced. The book's primary location is the tower, a one thousand floor tower in New York City, and all of NYC's civilization takes place/resides in this tower. The Thousandth Floor follows Avery, Eris, Watt, Leda, and Rylin. Some of them are rich, some of them are not. Some of them may be decent human beings, some of them might not be.

The premise of this book was out-of-this world amazing. The plot and the characters are enticing and easy to follow. Katharine McGee's writing style is also so articulate and so detailed that whenever you feel like there are a few questions that you want answered, specifically about the new New York City she created, you will probably find the answer on the next page. Amazingly, Katharine has anticipated all the questions you the reader will probably have, and she manages to answer them before you can wonder for too long. I did not have any lingering questions about events in the book (we can discuss these events with spoilers right here when the book comes out in August), except for: WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT? AND KATHARINE, CAN I PLEASE BE ON THE ARC LIST? (We're friends now, right? :)) Oh and one last IMPORTANT thing: Reading The Thousandth Floor is also a nice opportunity to read about a future that isn't a dystopia- in other words, dark, horrific, and bad. But the future in which The Thousandth Floor takes place isn't dark, horrific, and bad, and yet it is just as interesting, if not more interesting that a book with a backdrop of a dark dystopia. But all of them have secrets. Head to the bookstore in August and be the first to know...

Grade: A+
