    1. This short YA novella is a undiscovered gem in my opinion Sawyer creates an imaginative dystopian world brought on mostly by lack of water, a severe drought The powers that be create a virtual reality for their citizens so their minds can live in a place free of suffering, while keeping their earthly bodies in a stasis Kind of like a voluntary Matrix.The story follows two 16 year olds, Casey and James, who are faced with the decision of whether or not to enter into the Forever contract and join [...]


    2. The Forever Contractis an enjoyable and quick read.The premises of the story is really interesting but due to the length of the story, there isn t much character development.



    3. See of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.My Thoughts When I first got the inside scoop on this dystopian novella, I knew I wanted to read it I have been anxious to read a number of dystopians as of late and this one definitely fit the bill The synopsis is just an idea of what the world is like, but there is so much to it that Casey and James and their families face.Signing the Forever Contract means losing out on physically being with your loved ones who choose to remain The [...]


    4. I am giving this a 4 star rating as a YA short story It does not have the depth and character development of a full novel, and therefore, could not compete with my favorite full length YA dystpians e.g Divergent, Legend, Delirium, Hungar Games That being said, I really enjoyed the dystopian elements It is The Matrix meets Coma from a YA perspective The book made me think about what true happiness really means and the innate need for human survival.


    5. This was such a good book It sort of reminded me of the Uglies series, and Delirium, two amazing books with a plot similar to this I hope there s because this one right here was so interesting She wrote it very well, and was sad because all those people who went into the forever would just die and become a program.


    6. I loved this it was so compelling I hope that there is a folks up I seriously wish it was a full novel I didn t want it to end I need to know if the programmer goes down so many questions Great read



    7. I really wish this were a full novel I absolutely loved the story and the characters and was left wanting to read I hope there is a follow up


    8. Review posted June 11th on a reader lives a thousand liveCasey and James live in a world full of drought and generally tough living conditions, but they can escape At 17 you can sign the Forever Contract, where you upload your conciousness onto a computer and are told that your body is looked after in storage Casey is nearly 17 and considering signing the Forever Contract to be with her brother, Ben, only one thing is stopping her, her boyfriend James James is very against the Forever Contract, [...]


    9. Read of my reviews here paigeturnerreads.wordpress The cover of The Forever Contract and the synopsis were both misleading For the most part, I stay away from books that have covers like that, it usually means certain events occur None of that happened though, so I m not sure why Sawyer chose this cover The synopsis was what pulled me in The thought of upload ing your consciousness to the system and you re free to live as long as you want, however you want was intriguing What a unique twist to [...]


    10. MY REVIEWI was won this from Librarything to read and review this novella, in exchange for my honest review So big thank you s to Librarything and of course the Author.I like the cover and I suppose it is to represent the relationship between Casey and James, so sure it is relevant to the book However I feel perhaps a different cover may have promoted the much I think the fact the book is dystopian is not shown or hinted at all with it s present cover, but I still would definitely pick this boo [...]


    11. How would you like to live in a world where everyone is thirsty There is hardly any water and electricity To make up for the lack of water inhabitants are given gel packs They don t really get rid of the thirst, but they help keep everyone alive And the electricity Everyone is given an allotted amount a month Most people save their electricity to power their screens.What are these screens and what is so important that people would rather use their electricity for them than for such things as air [...]


    12. In this short novella, The Forever Contract, we dive into a dystopian world where the country is experiencing the worst drought human kind has ever encountered, where the water is so scarce trees and plants are a rarity to be seen Following the water wars, a system was created as an alternate paradise where you can live an immortal life, pain free, work free, and with all the food and water you could possibly want However, this paradise has a price A dangerous price The Forever Contract was one [...]


    13. This is a short novella in the burgeoning YA dystopian fiction genre.There are some really good ideas here The underlying main concept is fantastic A world where you can choose to have your consciousness uploaded into a virtual world Still being able to interact with those in the real world via computers screens is fascinating The idea of watching those you know in their self created virtual worlds Even the reasoning behind why this is happening works water shortages that cause wars, arid land t [...]


    14. The premise of this book was very interesting Sign away your life and live in Sim City Why not You can control where you want to live, how you want to look, etc Don t have to worry about a job, a place to live, what to eat because it s all provided for you in a virtual world of your choosing Casey is almost of age, and is about to join her brother, who has already signed the Forever Contract, but her boyfriend, James, doesn t trust it, and doesn t want to lose her to it He has been working with [...]


    15. This was a short novella So now I have to say give me MORE The story line was great The whole thing takes place in the future when natural resources are all but non existent There is no water and even less food so everyone survives on jell packs In order to make the world better the programmer has created a virtual world At the age of seventeen you are allowed to sign a forever contract and go into the system What this means is that your body is hooked up to life support and you mind is hooked u [...]


    16. The Forever Contract is a short Novella and I started it in October 2012 and finally had a chance to pick it back up and read it in January of this year I have to say that I was peeved with myself for not reading it sooner Man oh man Avery needs to make this into a book Lord the world had me scared to death Lord that kind of world could happen to anyone Yes it is Dystopian but the government is always doing something so this may be our world soon enough Food for thought.The country is in a state [...]


    17. For the first several pages I thought this would be a four star read As I got into pages I changed my mind and rated it three stars, and I thought it would stay at that rating But by half of the story, I realized that this book only deserves two stars the writing is bad, the characters make silly decisions to do things, and weird things are made to happen in order to move the plot.The narration is flat, the sentences fail to create the atmosphere of the situation they are narrating and I couldn [...]


    18. 4 STARSThe Forever Contract A Dystopian YA Novella The story is good but short I wanted to read , find out what happens next.The world is in a drought for years No one has grass, it is illegal to have your own garden Thier are food shortages, water shortages You can buy gel packs that work in your body instead of water.A system was developed where you sign a contract snd your body goes in a warehouse,hooked up to feeding tubes and you get uploaded to a virtual world You can have anything you wan [...]


    19. My mini review can also be found on my blog Collections.2.5 starsI have to admit that the cover is what made me want to read this novella It s very eye catching and hot Now, as for the actual story, it s a quick and easy read I do think some of the things that happened in this novella would have been better in a full length novel because I felt some things needed to be fleshed out And I didn t quite feel connected with the main characters Casey and James Honestly, they aren t a pair that really [...]


    20. I rated this novella high because I knew what it was when I first started reading, a short novella This story was a really cool concept The problem was because it was so short there was really no world building or characterization You got a glimpse of these but not a big picture It seemed like the author wrote the first book in a trilogy of dystopian novels, but only gave us the highlights of that first book in this novella Everything happened so quickly because to tell the whole story she had t [...]


    21. I received this novella in exchange for my review I had mixed feelings about this story I really liked the story idea, and I wanted to like the actual novella, but it fell a bit short for me I think it would have made an excellent full length novel, but as it was written it came across as an ok abridged version I felt like a lot of the things that happened in this book didn t really fit with the story, or were part of a story line that didn t seem to go anywhere Even for a novella, it felt unfin [...]


    22. I really liked this novella, and only wish it had been longer This would make a great full length novel The characters are interesting, the story line is very original, I believed most of it Two main things I did not like 1 There were many writing errors The verb tense was jumping all over the place Pick the past or the present, and stick with it unless you are writing a flashback or something along those lines.2 I rolled my eyes when Casey pulled out the laser gun Even though the author tried t [...]


    23. The Forever Contract, was what i am looking for when I needed to read that time, it gives me an ample idea that deciding on this trivial such as selling the soul is a very important decision dumb statement XD But really it was the third Dystopian Series i read after that epic read of Hunger games and divergent, this was a refreshing read after the adult books i ve been seen to be drawn to these days Story s about Casey and her choice to go into the system that holds her dear brother and the oppo [...]


    24. The idea of it was good but I honestly expected a different ending If this had been a full novel with an alternative ending, I believe it would ve been way better and probably would ve gotten AT LEAST 3.5 stars out if me.Edit After writing about this book on my blog, I ve decided to come back and go into detail about why I disliked this book Like I said above, the IDEA was really good, but the ending felt rushed and unimaginative and the book itself seemed to lack detail I feel like if Avery ha [...]


    25. I started this book this evening and it had be hanging on every single word Needless to say I finished it in one sitting My only complaint, it s too short I got 75% into it and was super confused as to how the author was going to wrap it up with so few pages left I wanted MORE The action at the end could have lasted much longer and the last few scenes felt choppy as it finalized All in all a really good, drawing read, but I was disappointed in how abruptly it ended Left me yearning for This boo [...]


    26. A really good novella that amazed me I could have read it in one sitting it was a gripping short story that I thoroughly enjoyed I think that the cover is slightly irrelevant to the story line, however, the story as a whole was fantastic and suitable for any dystopian fan.I enjoyed a fresh and new outlook on the genre I enjoyed the Divergent Trilogy a little too much and The Hunger Games, so I thought that I would give this book a chance, what made even better was that it was a free e book on Ko [...]


    27. This book was different I am new to the Dystopian fiction genre and have found myself intrigued by a few of the book in this genre This one was different and while I liked it I think I connected with the story but not the characters maybe there was something that I missed or maybe I was not supposed to connect with them This book was interesting and I think that the story line could have had to it and I would have connected with these characters This was not what I thought it would be and the c [...]


    28. It was definitely a novella.or really just a short story Great premise about the near future, rampant drought and starvation, and rumors of wars.People are given the opportunity to sign the forever contract, which will make them an avatareir body resides in suspension, on life support and their minds live on in paradise.or so they are told.The idea was amazing, but the story was brief and lacked depth.
