Complex characters, complex themes Perhaps even more so than with the scope, I was impressed with the complexity of the characters and themes in Partials. Wells has proven his talent for creating engaging first-person narrators in his other novels, but he wisely chooses to step back to a third-person narrative in Partials.
This story is less about Kira Walker and more about a group of teenagers struggling to find their purpose in life when everyone around them is telling them that life—in particular, creating more of it— is their purpose. The novel explores questions that would inevitably arise if humanity was on the brink of extinction: do women have a right to their own bodies when reproduction becomes paramount to the survival of humanity?
Is a totalitarian state an acceptable price for peace when the last society on Earth is at risk of tearing itself apart through civil war?

Every character in Partials has their own answers to these questions; even when they share the same goals, their differing approaches to achieving those goals create divisive conflicts that split even the closest of friendships. Wells keeps careful control of all these aspects of all these characters, and it keeps the conflict and momentum high from beginning to end. Why should you read this book?
He draws from some of the best post-apocalyptic and dystopian sources in fiction to create the world of Partials without ever feeling derivative, handles a large cast of characters with relatively few missteps, and feels more in control of his story than he ever has before. Chock full of quality world …. To say that I was disappointed by this book is an understatement. Machines hummed and buzzed and beeped and swished. Her father was a genetic sequencer, and her mother was a tube of carefully calibrated nutrients.
A certain walk and their pulse would quicken; a smile, a bit of eye contact, and everything would change.

Some wanted to protect her, others to talk to her, and others wanted simply to touch her. All of these reactions were a form of control—they saw something pretty and wanted it for themselves.
How many of them suspected that she was the one controlling them? You made us to kill and conquer, and we are doing it better than you ever anticipated.
Far better than you could ever do yourselves. You are no match for us. Do not make us your enemy.pierreducalvet.ca/199433.php
Partials Sequence #01: Partials
She felt a tear in the corner of her eye and blinked it away. We need a virus that will destroy them without harming anyone else. He held out the syringe. Save this child or sentence it to death. She was talking about herself. The living weapon that threatened every other Partial merely by existing. She held him as long as she could, and when he pulled away to breathe, she pressed her face against his chest. Kira, Samm, and Marcus fight to prevent a final war between Partials and humans in the gripping final installment in the Partials Sequence, a series that combines the thrilling action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Blade Runner and The Stand.
There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening.
