Reboot by Amy Tintera Book Review

Reboot (Reboot, #1)Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.
The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

I’ve been so excited for Reboot ever since I first saw the premise, especially that last line ;) Wren was an awesome character and I loved how action-packed this book was. 

The book centers around Reboots, humans who come back stronger after dying. This is a direct result of a virus spreading over parts of the U.S. Wren was a Reboot who's assumed to be the deadliest and strongest, based on how long she stayed dead before she Rebooted.

Wren was a character I couldn’t help but like. Her humanity showed so much more over the course of the book and she had so many relatable teenage emotions. Bits of her past, eventually the entire thing, are also revealed over the course of the story.

Callum and Wren’s relationship was so cute! It definitely was somewhat insta-lovey, but I didn’t mind too much. Callum was adorable and very lovable. Wren’s and his interactions always put a smile on my face. They just balanced each other out really well :)

The plot was intriguing and I thought everything was depicted so realistically regarding what the government had become. The Reboots were outcasts in society and the government led others to believe that the government was the saving force in everything. I thought it was very unique dystopian. 

For the Reboots themselves, the only thing I wished for was that more details about their past and how only certain people became Reboots had been explained. I’m curious to find out the details of it. I’m guessing more will be revealed in book 2 ;)

Reboot was an awesome book, with a very unique premise. I’m so excited for the sequel! I’d give Reboot 4 out of 5 flowers.


  1. I love it when a book has a great character and is action-packed. Cause some of my biggest fears is that character will be whiny and that the book will be slow-paced. Great review :)

  2. I agree with all of your points- I felt the exact same way! I know that some people didn't like Callum and the way Wren changed because of him, but I thought that it was cute.
