Taking inspiration from Beauty and the Beast and forging it into a dystopian novel alongside an apocalypse was a wonderful idea… if only this book was executed better. For the first few chapters I hated this book, lost complete interest and did not feel for any characters. Then I started getting Hunger Games-ish District 13 vibes and I thought, hey, this could be something that I can struggle through! Well, Zero Repeat Forever was mediocre at best. The problems I had were that August/Eight was a horrible depiction of the “Beast” and I felt nothing for the weird, robotic character that apparently was the only Nahx beast to have a heart. I felt nothing for this affection between Raven and August, nor did their scenes make any logical sense whatsoever. Raven, who is told to have a big blond Afro and is a crazy teenager alongside her troublemaking friends, seems more like a mellow ‘Piper’ from the Heroes of Olympus than anything else. The only reason I got through with this book was because of one tiny detail: the season the book took place in. Winter; the only thing that made me feel like this was a fairytale novel. The ending was all over the place and I still don’t know what happened. Lost interest in the series! Rating 2.5/5

By point of comparison, about 2 decades ago, I started reading the Australian by John Marsden series that began with Tomorrow, When the War Began and went on for many fantastic books. And those books have stayed with me all these years. I can still see those books play out in my mind's eye. That is good fiction! Now, onto this particular book: I am a youth librarian and read a lot of teen and children's lit. I know a keeper when I read one and Zero Repeat Forever is such a book because I just know Raven's and Eighth story will stay with me. I can't get some of the incredible scenes out of my brain. It's like I am watching a movie! It might help that I am a Canadian and recognized the settings but more than that, these kids rock, especially Raven. She is a really cool kid with just so much in the way of guts, it is unreal! H0wever, there is nothing she does I can't imagine a martial arts trained teen actually doing if there ever was an alien invasion. If you want to lose yourself in a riveting story, with some action packed scenes balanced with some more introspective scenes and some really fantastic character development, then this is for you. I hate reviews that give away too much of the plot, so I won't do that but I will say, the time you spend on this book will be well worth it. Or hold out for an audiobook, either way, this novel is so worth it. I can't wait for the sequel...and even though I have my own internal movie based on this book, I wouldn't say no to a movie version either!
