Com certeza foi uma das melhores leituras que fiz esse ano! Iniciei essa leitura com expectativas altas e, felizmente, todas elas foram atendidas e me surpreendi tanto com a história, que ainda sigo chocada com esse enredo. Hank Green foi brilhante no que ele se propôs a apresentar com um plot diferente (e meio confuso, no início) é impossível não ficar fascinado em como a história nos faz refletir tanto sobre a imersão nas redes sociais, sociedade, fama e política. Hank conseguiu tratar de assuntos tão distintos de uma maneira tão incrível e é surpreendente como esse livro conversa tanto com a atualidade. Ansiosíssima para ler a continuação assim que possível.
This is not a celebrity vanity project. This is a legit sci fi novel that deals with the modern issues of social media and the power it has in our society and over each of us as individuals. Also, there are aliens in it, but not in the usual way. It's his first book, so it isn't perfect, but it is an excellent first book, and a great book in general. It keeps you wanting to know where it goes from beginning to end, and who can ask for more than that? Anyway, I enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to reading the next one. Good job, Hank. Best wishes and don't forget to be awesome
Eu já amava o Hank Green por causa de The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, mas conhecer a escrita do irmão do John foi um prazer. Foi bom eu não saber a sinopse do livro direito e me surpreender com o quanto a história cresce e evolui ao longo da leitura. Eu esperava algo leve e bobo, mas é muito mais do que a capa deixa transparecer.
This was phenomenal. A really gripping story told in a super interesting and engaging way. Wonderful and lively characters and so much poignant and beautiful discussion on what is to be, what is to live in the current day and what is to be a social being in it. It's just incredible and Hank (the author) is such a great person. A true pleasure to read
Great book!!! A very good scifi in the sense that it uses the fiction to create a discourse about contemporary society. It is a very straightforward book, with few subtlety, and it does have a very "twittery" language, but both those characteristics fit well in the narrative, so it comes out as a pro rather than a con. I definitely recommend!
At face value, this book would give you the impression that it is a contemporary Sci-fi book. However, its a much deeper exploration of how dehumanising fame is and how being an internet celebrity can rupture your foundations of self and it can affect your relationships with everyone around you. It was very thought-provoking. I know from having watched Hank's videos on Youtube that he is a very eloquent communicator so I wasn't surprised but content that he was able to communicate the themes of this book with a necessary bluntness. The only thing that was a little off-putting was the occasional time jumps. They felt a bit jarring at times but otherwise a very strong debut.
An excellent read and exceptional story from a first time author! Hank is a big time writer and for his debut book it’s a good solid read! It captivated me for hours at a time. His easy yet descriptive story spinning is delightful to read , captivating in its style the gender of his protagonist is refreshingly different telling the story from her perspective! It’s ending is great and still has me thinking of it’s final page days after reading it! I cut my teeth on golden age and new age SF so I’ve seen and read thousands of stories, this is well worth reading again and currently is top of my re-read pile! Excellent with one tiny flaw? We want MORE!
Loved this. I bought it for my teenage daughter, on the basis that she loves John Green and we like the podcasts he makes with his brother. What a fantastic book. April, our hero, happens across a giant metal robot, she christens it Karl and posts on social media about it. It turns out that she has been the first to post about one of many Kars So, they are all over the world. But what are they? Aliens? And if they are, are they harmful or benign? This could easily have been a very different story, but instead focused very much on the nature of fame, obsession and what happens to one likeable and complex person when their world takes a very unexpected turn. I loved it. Made me smile, laugh and really think. Should be obligatory reading for teenagers, if they can put their phones down for long enough.
