I think it s only fair to warn you from the start that this review isn t uite what it seems In fact it s an experiment the idea of which is to see whether I can give you a clear picture of this book without actually telling you anything about it What prompted the idea is that Kind of Like Life is virtually impossible to write a normal review of you can t really describe much of it without committing horrendous spoilers the book s own blurb covers only about the first fifth or so and doesn t give you even the remotest idea of the story because where the blurb ends the plot then goes up a gear and up and up There s also its genre not just YA because I reckon people of any age will enjoy unpeeling its nested layers and not science fiction either because the science in it is like an art student s idea of scienceSo I thought of trying this experiment instead It s a pretty original idea you ve got to admit even readers reviewing books by the likes of say Philip K Dick never thought of doing anything like this and a lot of his books Ubik just to pick a random example are as tricky to reviewMm I don t know We re not even halfway through this yet and I m having second thoughts already I wish I hadn t mentioned P K Dick because many of his novels are also concerned with the nature of reality is the world you think you re living in real or is it some kind of illusion a dream or hallucination maybe or even something sinister and how can you tell Well what s just crossed my mind is that although this is a clever idea for a book review is it too clever too good to be true could there be going on here than I d realised as well I mean where did this whole experiment idea come from in the first place Think about it why should I try to persuade you to read someone else s novel it doesn t make sense Has someone been messing with my head sort of tiptoeing about in it tinkering with the wiring in there which would explain one or two other oddities I ve noticed like a certain song by The Smiths which has been going round and round in my brain on a loop ever since I had this review as experiment idea But who And why Someone who s trying to get me to write an inventive review of her book that s who faced with the problem of how to get a few decent reviews this author has mulled it over or I suppose mcmulled it over and came up with the clever idea of a review as experiment then telepathically projected it into my mindHang on though telepathy isn t possible in real life only in stories so where does that leave me and what I thought was the world I m left as usual with the suspicion that there must be to all this than meets the eyekind of like the book this review is about in fact And kind of now that I come to think of it like life

Kind of Like Life Free download ¾ 109 Christina McMullen ☆ 9 Free download Free download Kind of Like Life Lurred the teens find themselves the unwilling pawns in a deadly game of cat and mouse Their very survival now hinges on Renee's overactive imagination Unfortunately that's also what got them into this mess?. This book is very much aimed at a YA audience I m not part of that audience and it s probably fair to say I was never what is considered a young adult even when I was Not only that but my background is from England rather than North America and cultural differences abound Because of this I found the very first part of the book a little slow and hard to identify with the characters at this point That s not a fault of the writing just my own personal tastes and backgroundWhat happens then is nothing short of remarkable and makes me so glad that I persevered Once you get to the meat of the story you are dragged in to a helter skelter ride that takes you into realms that are at once familiar but also utterly surprising It s than fair to say that the opening in no way prepares you for what is about to comeThere is plenty of mystery in here and some adult themes that will certainly get you thinking The characters are very well delineated and appealing once they start to move through the main part of the storyThe author doesn t pull any punches but is also very sensitive to the audience so there are only limited descriptions of certain aspects of the story This isn t a criticism but rather a recognition of the talent of Ms McMullen in handling some difficult topics in a way that other authors would simply avoid or gloss over with a lot of hand waving Here the author tackles the issues but limits the detail in some areas in respect of her audience Personally I think this is commendable not just for a YA audience but also in general terms in a world where sometimes the nasty stuff is glorified for the sake of supposed shock value aloneDefinitely a five star read and heartily recommended to anyone especially lovers of YA fiction

review é E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Christina McMullen

Kind of Like Life Free download ¾ 109 Christina McMullen ☆ 9 Free download Free download Kind of Like Life All Renee Ward ever wanted out of life was two things Good friends to share her love of fantasy and fairy tales and for magic to be real When her family moves to the uaint coastal town of Waterside it seems. This is a great story that kept me on my toes I thought it was going one way then it took an unexpected and interesting sharp turn The path of the entire story was written so well I had no clue what would happen next The story line is completely original I ve never read anything like this before The action is paced just right and kept me turning pages Last night I could not put the book down The suspense kept me up until 2 AM to finish it The two main characters are realistic and likable I felt their pain and routed for them throughout the story I particularly liked how they worked together and helped each other The world in which they lived was very vibrant and alive I like how the author gave them vivid imaginations of their own It was fun following them around as they made the best of their situation And I really liked how it endedI ve never commented on a book cover before This cover is beautiful The colors and shading are perfect I was pleased to learn at the end of the story that the author created the cover herself and the girl in the photo is a relative Very niceThe creative imagination and artistic ability of this author is not to be missed
