If I had to pick three words to describe Electric Impulse: Love, Life & Sex by Angel Hilson, those words would be “very tastefully done.” I like this novel. I like the writing. I like the choices. I like the characters. I like the story. Not everyone can pull off writing a book like this. I found it totally modern with just the right touch of references from the past and nods to today’s culture. This is an American novel. If you tried to tell this story but set it in Europe or Canada, it would be a very different tale. This genre is not one I read as much as I do sci-fi, fantasy, or thrillers, but if more writers were as capable and talented as Angel Hilson, I just might. She has an extraordinary ability to tell a good story.
First, I liked the plot, the story itself. It was very grounded in reality and believability. Nothing stretched my willingness to suspend disbelief too far. I could jump in and feel this happened. These people are real. Next, I loved the characters. I liked the protagonist and her friends. Aria is a girl I could fall for. Even characters I could not like, such as Sebastian and his mother, were still totally believable and fitted in with the story. I like that I did not even realize the story is about an African-American girl, and her friends and family until a few pages in. I liked the descriptive writing. I liked that it wasn't overdone. Plot, setting, and characters all contributed to a satisfying conclusion. I look forward to reading more by this author.
