Signal To Noise - Review

Signal to NoiseSignal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was initially captured by the cover art and then intrigued by the line "for fans of Stranger Things." That's me. I'm a fan of Stranger Things. So I hurriedly applied for the ARC and was delighted to receive it just a few days later!



Set in dual timelines, one in 1980s Mexico City, so this is where the Stranger Things reference is. Mainly the 80s music. The book contains an epic playlist of music across every chapter. I enjoyed the magic system. I wish Meche were nicer, she comes off as bratty at times. I really enjoyed reading from a different voice. Siliva Moreno-Garcia is Canadian-Mexican, which is a new-to-me voice. I liked learning a little about the Mexican culture as well.

Bottom line, if you like light magic, the 80s and music, give this book a try! Especially if you love music. That for me is what truly made it stand out. Honestly, I hope this becomes a movie or tv series, I'd binge it in a heartbeat.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.
