There were many different qualities in the novel Pure that pertained to nuclear science and the hardships of people who had to endure nuclear bombs. It is the main reason I fell in love with the novel itself.
Only a week after the Detonations hit everything anyone had ever known had been obliterated. Black rain and fire swept over the land leaving many injured or dead. One building survived the bombs and it is called the Dome. It is also known as where the Pure people live. The Pure had never stepped outside since the Detonations and were never introduced to the toxins the Detonations left behind. The people living outside of the Dome are known as Wretches. The People who had been exposed to bombs first hand and had to live with the horrors the bombs left them. Everyone had lost something after the Detonations from losing family members, or being fused to the Earth, its animals, plants, and everyday man-made items. The people on the outside have witnessed all of mans mistakes and is now starting to wonder when the people inside the Dome will make their appearance and help them.
From the moment I read the prologue of the novel I knew I would love it. The storyline and character developments still intrigue me and draw me in to this very moment. If you have an interest for an adventure, drama, and breath-taking experience then read Pure. There will also be two other novels written to complete this trilogy and I can’t wait to read them!
If you liked Pure by Julianna Baggott then you might like Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry, Soulless by Christopher Golden, and The Other Life: The Weepers by Susanne Winnacker which I thought were all wonderful!
