I loved this book! A quick, fascinating read. In the age of more and more talk of artificial intelligence, I can‘t help but imagine some version of this story could be a future reality. Ana is a fascinating lead character, and her world and her relationships with her sisters, are equal parts intriguing and creepy. If you‘re a Disney fan like me, you are sure to enjoy this book!

4/5⭐

This. I liked this. A very quick read, it keeps you wanting to read one more chapter before putting it down, but realizing how short the next chapter is makes you read another one, and so on. I flew through this! It was alright, I really liked this hybrid concept, first book I ever read with hybrids! This was the perfect book to recover from A Little Life 😅

LibrarianRyan I love that cover. What version UK or AUS, or ??? 5mo
dxmy @LibrarianRyan It says printed in the UK! 5mo
LibrarianRyan @dxmy Very cool. The US version has the same colors but a completely different cover. If I remember when I get home I'll take a picture. 5mo

dxmy @LibrarianRyan isn't that the one with the split face? 5mo
LibrarianRyan @dxmy yeah. That is what drew it to me in the first place. 5mo
dxmy @LibrarianRyan I understand, that's an intriguing cover! I like that one better, represents the book better in my opinion, though this one isn't too bad either 🤭 5mo

Humans are capable of such cruelty. Suck horror. And in order to become one...I've had to become capable of that, too.

They built the gateway because they love us. But what is it called, when you love a thing so much it hurts?

After all, how do you describe something you cannot see, hear, or touch? How do you describe something that isn't really there - not in any true, measurable sense?

Dr Foster: I'll tell you in a minute. But first, there's one thing I haven't figured out.
Ana: I'm listening.
Dr Foster: what did you do with the body, Ana.

This was a unique new idea and I loved this book. If your a fan of new ways of story telling, murder/mystery, amusement parks (think Disney), and technology this book is for you.

This is SO GOOD! I saw reviews saying it was a YA Westworld meets Disneyland, so true! Almost done with it and I highly recommend for sure.

If you've seen Westworld, the concept is a tad similar. This is a YA fantasy+thriller and I promise you that you'll not be able to put it down. I read this for a readathon and I breezed through this book and was left wanting more of it. The Kingdom is basically like Disneyland but with cutting-edge tech to create a more authentic experience for its visitors..

5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

mandi1082 I listened to the audiobook of The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg. It takes place at a Family Park sort of like a futuristic Disney World. This place has like hybrid robot like princess and hybrid like animals.

There is something going on and Ana is starting to question a lot about her life and the place she lives in. Something of her stature shouldn't be doing. The story alternates back and forth before and murder and after a murder. I really enjoyed this story but would like to get my hands on the Physical Copy to reread!

I loved this book! The idea of artificial intelligence and cyborgs set in a Disney-like park is engaging and a great addition to the fantasy genre. If you have watched HBO‘s Westworld, and enjoyed it, and you like young adult literature than you will enjoy this new work by Jess Rothenberg.

That was interesting. The whole time I was reading it, it reminded me of a futuristic Disneyland gone wrong. The song, “it‘s a Small World” in a creepy tune was playing in my head. With that said, that‘s all good. This book is original and interesting and while I was pretty sure of the plot twist it didn‘t lessen the story.
