Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

February 8, 2018

I really wanted to love Unearthed. It seemed to have all the elements I would like: space fun, planetary exploration, mysterious aliens, archaeology puzzles and a whole lot of sci-fi…

But I really struggled with reading it. With the shifting back and forth between Amelia and Jules, there was no mystery as to what either of them were up to. All their thoughts, and plans, and lies were all laid out to the reader each time we shifted to their point of view.

And boy was it laid out! It felt like the inner monologue made up a good 75% of the book at times with action and dialogue taking a back seat. Which is a pity because when we did get to see the interaction between Jules and Amelia, it was great! I just wanted to see more of it!
