Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Published May 3rd 2007 by Hodder Children’s Books
Incarceron — a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology — a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber — chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here.

Oh, enjoy!! It sounds really good!!
Great pick for this week Lauren, and I hope this is a book you really enjoy as well. I had Incarceron on my to-read list for the longest time, I ended up removing it because I just lost interest but maybe if you enjoy it I’ll add it back onto my TBR list. You’ll have to let me know what you think! 🙂
I should probably go through my tbr and check out some old books and see if I’m still interested in reading them – but there are just so many! I hope I enjoy it 🙂
I need to do the same. I clear some off as I go along, so to speak, but there are still loads of really old ones I know I’m not going to be interested in anymore. 🙂
