Pro: Jane and Sundar are delightful characters. Jane, especially, felt warm blooded with an enviable soul.
Con: The plot felt a bit predictable at times, and I would have liked to see more everyday effects stemming from the story’s unique underground society–geeky world building stuff sure to be included in future installments.
The Buried Life by Carrie Patel, a breezy read with a steady plot and memorable characters, is a promising debut novel.
