The Fox Inheritance (Jenna Fox Chronicles #2)
Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and t
The narrator of this novel is Locke (I am sure you remember him from Jenna's story). Locke and Kara's consciousnesses had been scanned and digitally saved for possible future use. Although Jenna destroyed the copies kept by her parents at the end of the first book, there was another illegal copy...more
The Adoration of Jenna Fox, is one of my all time favorite novel. Ever. To say that The Fox Inheritance had a lot to live up to in my eyes... is an understatement. Although Jenna is still my favorite, The Fox Inheritance definitely makes an appearance on my list.
This story is different... a lot different than Jenna Fox. As the reader we're watching these characters deal with something completely different than what Jen...more
I liked it. It lacked some excitement...
I wish she had done a bit more 'world building', as the little glimpses into it were charming (chocolate peaches? iScroll? I need one of those...)
It was a very introspective-type book, and you barely realize it's dystopian ... maybe it isn't really dystopian, as that is not a major plot point in the book.
It's more like sci-fi lite.
Diversamente dal primo romanzo della serie, se così vogliamo considerarla date le innumerevoli differenze tra le due storie, la narrazione si concentra su due personaggi che avevamo avuto modo di co...more
Come dice la trama, Jenna Locke e Kara sono un gruppo di amici che condividevano tutto, le passioni, gli eccessi e, inaspettatamente, hanno condiviso anche la morte. Come abbiamo visto in Dentro Jenna, dopo un tragico incidente stradale i tre hanno perso la vita straziando i cuori dei propri familiari. Tutto questo era avvenuto in un futuro imprecisato, se pur non lontano dalla...more

Unfortunately, this book feels like a gratuitous add-on, with somewhat stretched circumstances allowing us to find out what happened to Jenna's friends. It's set over two centuries after the first book, and...more

Where Jenna’s story was all about identity and what is required to make a person fully human, Locke’s and Kara’s story is more action-packed. The issues of identity and sentience were addressed in small ways throughout the plot, but there is...more
It was defiantly an un-put-downable book. I would recommend it. It was just... Kara. Her character made my rating of this book go down a star. She was the most weird character I have ever read about. Their wasn't much information about her, and I couldn't understand why Jenna and I forgot his name wanted to hang out with her in the first place. I know Jenna said that (view spoiler)[ the old Kara died with in the accident (hide spoiler)], but if she had really changed tha...more

Quel che non poteva immaginare, però, era che Kara e Locke sarebbero tornati.
Riportati alla vita in un mondo che non è il loro e in un corpo che non riconoscono, i due amici affronteranno una vita a cui non erano pronti, con un solo obbiettivo: trovare Jenna Fox.
Aspettavo questo secondo volume con...more
The first book in this series, The Adoration of Jenna Fox, is much more stimulating and challenging than this sequel, especially because Pearson masterfully develops the dawning self-realization of the reconstructed Jenna, illuminating ethical struggles that seem very real today. The Fox Inheritance takes place 260 years later, an interesting jump, and is narrated by Locke, one of Jenna's close friends who "died" with her in a car accident but is also, along with their other friend...more
"Non riesco a smettere di fissarla per una ragione che lei conosce fin troppo bene.
Perchè la amo.
Lei è tutto quello che ho."
Ammetto che con una quarta di copertina del genere, il mio cuore romantico ha sussultato sperando in un "Dentro Jenna" rivisto attraverso gli occ...more
Questa volta la storia è narrata dal punto di vista di Locke, amico di Jenna e anch' egli coinvolto nell' incidente che ha portato ai fatti raccontati in “Dentro Jenna”. La vicenda inizia ad un anno dal risveglio di Locke e Kara, l' altra ragazza rimasta vittima dell' incidente. Durante questo anno i due ragazzi sono stati istruiti dal dott. Gatsbro, colui che ha ricostruito i loro corpi e che li ha aiutati a prenderci conf...more
Since I read The Adoration of Jenna Fox a few years ago, I have been waiting for some kind of sequel or companion novel. I have been feeling for a long time that I needed to get back into this world. And FINALLY, Pearson gave me my wish.
The Fox Inheritance was exactly what I had been waiting for. Pearson picks up where the previous left off. Writing with a style that is completly her own. The concept. The characters. The intrigue and twists. All of it were exactly...more
-There was too much internal dialog. Most of the book was Locke talking to himself about his life, his thoughts, and "lapses" where he would just go on and on.
-There wasn't enough world building. I can't tell you how many times it said something like, "After two hundred years, (whatever) was still the same." Th...more
