Review: We Have Always Lived on Mars by Cecil Castellucci

We Have Always Lived on MarsWe Have Always Lived on Mars by Cecil Castellucci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘We Have Always Lived on Mars’ was quite a fascinating little short. I enjoyed how well it introduced this idea of terraforming and breeding humans for adaptability. It is an interesting topic which I would love to see more of in the YA sci-fi genre! I thought it would also work very well as a prologue to a real novel which further explores terraforming and selective breeding of humans.
The characters were also pretty awesome, though I would have enjoyed exploring them a little further. I also enjoyed the twist at the end. It was a pretty good cliff-hanger and probably the driving force behind making-the-short-a-full-novel idea.
Congratulations to Cecil Castellucci on publishing a great short story!
