Entropy by Taylor Conrad is a solid YA Dystopian fiction novel. Since I knew but sort of didn’t know what entropy meant I looked it up on dictionary.com. A simple definition is “a measure of disorder of any system.” With a society in decline, a group of teenagers forced to live and train together against their wills, a main character in the middle of love triangle, and genetic alterations gone wrong, Entropy provides ample doses of disorder to be measured.
The story moves quickly and at its heart it is a tale of friendship and acceptance of others from diverse backgrounds and belief systems. The author adds religious overtones to the book by having some characters petition God for help during their struggles while others question why God would allow bad things to happen to them.
Entropy leaves many questions, in particular those around the society the characters live in, unanswered and builds toward a sequel, which I hope the author writes, because I am interested to see where the characters go next.
If you are looking for a YA Dystopian novel light on exposition, but heavy on in-the-moment drama and action, then give Entropy your attention.
With NaNoWriMo around the corner, you might find it interesting that Entropy began as a NaNoWriMo project. For more info about that and about the author, visit Taylor Conrad’s Goodreads Page. Also, here’s the link to Entropy’s Facebook page.
