Book Review: From a Distant Star – Karen McQuestion

24036086“When Lucas Walker inexplicably recovers from a terminal illness, everyone is astonished –except for his girlfriend Emma, who never gave up hope. However, as friends and family celebrate the miracle, Emma becomes alarmed: Lucas has changed. He speaks haltingly, can’t recall past events, and even his own dog doesn’t recognize him. Emma begins to suspect something is terribly wrong. What happened to the Lucas she loved? Does his strange behaviour have something to do with the shooting light that fell into Lucas’s backyard the night he recovered?

As the two set off on a road trip in search of the truth, the journey takes an unexpected turn. First, they’re shot at by unknown enemies and then helped by unlikely allies. Before long, Emma and Lucas are plunged into a desperate life or death race against time.”

I surprisingly really enjoyed reading this book! I haven’t read this kind of genre before, so it was interesting to see what the Author did with the plot and characters.
Overall the characters were really well developed, and I found it easy to get into Emma’s perspective. She was a character that I really enjoyed reading her journey through, and it was very obvious how much she adored her boyfriend Lucas.

I especially loved how how McQuestion alternated the POV’s in some of the chapters. I found it quite an entertaining read (in a very good way) and it kept be flicking through the pages.The only thing that I would mention would be in some parts it lost its pace and I found it a little difficult to follow and want to read on. For a book with this many pages it would have taken me a little less time to read then it did. I would.


Favourite Quotes:

“Why would she put ‘<3’ after her name? Did she consider herself to be less than three?”
“Love trumps logic every time”
“Fear is one of the strongest emotions’ he said solemnly. And fear  for a loved one is  stronger yet”


I would rate this book a 4 out of five stars. ‘From a distant star’ by Karen McQuestion was a really good book, and I enjoyed reading it. I would definitely suggest this book to others to read.
