Reviewer's Note - None of us at the Quality Reads UK Book Club has finished reading or discussing Serving Time by Nadine Ducca. We have been asked to post our reviews early. This review is based on the first 60% of the book and may change at a later date once we finish reading and discussing the book.
Favourite location / setting … When Robert and Time are talking about searching for the "True Self". I know many of the book club members adored Time, I didn't really like her. She seemed to have one too many layers for me and she was so high and mighty. I know this and I know that but I'm not going to tell you. Initially, it was all mysterious, then it just dragged. I did like this discussion because the search for our own "true self" is never easy either and found this chapter particularly amusing.
What did you like most about the book? Hmmm, so only one thing. I would say the writing. Every single one of us at the book club are enjoying this book. The editing is polished and the formatting is easy to read. The story is captivating and each page makes you think about your own life or situations you have already experienced. Whether this was the author's intention, I do not know but it definitely had that effect for a lot of us at the book club.
Favourite quote … "All defective souls are eventually pruned and shipped to the Repository; it's how the universe functions. Why should you worry about the fate of one faulty True Self?" "Because in the case of this True Self, the fault is mine." If you think Time has no regrets, well, think again.
Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
