Review of Faller by Will McIntosh

Rating: 3/5
Recommend: Probably
I received Faller from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Faller starts out with the main character waking up in the middle of the street with absolutely no memories of his past. All he has is a toy parachute, a strange drawing, and a photograph. As he fights for survival in a post-apocalyptic universe, where the laws of physics don’t quite work like they should and no one remembers who they used to be, our main character slowly unravels the mystery of his life.

I thought Faller had a really interesting concept, once I started to understand what was happening. It took me a while to get a handle on the plot and the world. Personally, I found the story to be a little too jumpy and disorganized so I had a hard time really getting into the story. So I liked the book, but it took me a long time to read it because I had so much trouble figuring out what exactly was going on. Some level of uncertainty is to be expected in a book like Faller, but this was just too much for my taste.

The ending also kind of weirded me out for one, I’m not a hundred percent sure I know exactly what really happened at the end. I got a little lost, to be honest. But, from what I could gather, I didn’t particularly enjoy how McIntosh chose to end things. It wasn’t a terrible ending by any means, but it just didn’t mesh with me very well.
