This book is not for everyone. It is mainly written with the intent to connect with the kids dreaming of their destiny at the start. This masterpiece is written by Charlie Jane Anders, an award-winning writer of the 21st century who is known for combining genres and writing stories of fiction, mixed with scientific fantasies.
Victories Greater Than Death is a thrilling sci-fi that is set against an intergalactic war. The entire book is centered around Tina, who calls herself the star’s child.
Tina has always believed that she’s not like any other average teenager and the primary daughter who loves to read and write. In this book, she’s portrayed as the interplanetary rescue beacon and awaits its revelation when she can save the world from all its miseries.
In this book, Tina is portrayed as a hidden clone of the alien fame hero. He left Earth disguised as a human to solve all the mysteries and resolve all miseries of the universe by defeating evil. However, she only realizes her truth after the beacon activates that things are far more complicated and mysterious than they seem.
People of her world actually expected her to save them from all the memories of the universe by being a brilliant tactician and legendary savior. However, when the time comes, she realizes she’s not extraordinary, and Tina is just the regular Tina.
Despite the ongoing chaos and unfortunate situations, she has a trustworthy crew that helps her in all her endeavors. She also has a best friend named Rachel, who is all set to help Tina in saving the drawing world from mystery, but first, she has to save herself.
Since it is also an LGBTQ-friendly book, it has attracted many young minds trying to come out of the closet. In addition, it has a diverse cast of characters, especially the asexual main character, her best friend, a heartbroken boy, and a trans friend who is hell-bent on saving the Earth and fighting for feminism simultaneously. Due to the diversification of characters, the book has turned a lot of heads and stirred the minds of the readers.
While some readers have decided it to be the best book of all time, to educate young minds about the diversification of gender preferences, it has also cooked the recipe for skeptical issues in many readers’ minds.
However, one fault in the texts lies in the style of narration, where Tina’s character is sometimes italicized and written in parentheses. In addition, the inconsistent formatting of the font can put a reader off. However, the great story and the diversification of characters make up for the slight annoyance caused by formatting.
