Book Review: The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

Sometimes love and chaos are the same thing

I heard so many things before the release of The Thousandth Floor. But with my experience with an overhyped book, I have spent 2 years in limbo on whether I was going to read this trilogy or not. In the end, I did read it and I wasn’t disappointed but I also thought it could have been much better.

A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future where anything is possible—if you want it enough.


A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. Everyone there wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

LEDA COLE’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

ERIS DODD-RADSON’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

RYLIN MYERS’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will this new life cost Rylin her old one?

WATT BAKRADI is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy for an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is AVERY FULLER, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Amid breathtaking advancement and high-tech luxury, five teenagers struggle to find their place at the top of the world. But when you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down….

I give The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee three out of five hearts because it could have been much better, but it was very interesting. I was confused a lot of the time because it has so many POVs and didn’t like that at all.

Leda is a typical rich girl, she is easily jealous and one of the most annoying of the main characters. Watt is the outcast and doesn’t care about regulations. He has a supercomputer in his brain! I loved Eris, she is down to earth and I enjoyed her storyline the most. I didn’t care that much about the others because they seemed very much useless and I didn’t understand why they were main characters. Only later my opinion changed a little. I still think the story has way too many POVs and main characters.

What I did like about The Thousandth Floor was that it starts with a girl falling of the thousandth floor and you have to wait for most of the book to figure out what actually happened that evening and why. I read anticipating what happened and it kept me curious whenever I got confused.

Overall I think it is a fine story but it could have been less of a mess.
