Catherine Fisher’s book “Incarceron” is not one to look forward to

“Incarceron” is a prison that came alive. A boy named Finn and a girl named Claudia are both stuck in this prison, just on two different “floors.” The different floors of the prison are completely different worlds. Claudia lives in a civilized world where she is the daughter of the warden of Incareceron, and Finn lives with the “comitatus,” who are barbarians and are constantly at war, capturing people and giving them to their leader. 

The book starts out in media res, meaning it just throws readers into the middle of the story, with Finn being stuck somewhere and nearly killed. 

While the plot may sound good, Fisher’s novel is incredibly confusing. 

Fisher throws random people in at different times without explaining their part in the story, who they are or why they are coming in. 

The story constantly switches back and forth between two different viewpoints, and it’s a lot going on at once. 

The plot of the book would be good, had it not been ruined by confusing vocabulary, characters and sequence of events.
