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
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
but really I'm ranting. I like this book it's actually better than the first one. some reviews say this is an unnecessary sequel, that's true, but it isn't about whether sequels are necessary it's about whether they are worthwhile. I mean so many teen books try to force you into the reading the sequel by leaving out part of the story. ...more
The best thing about getting ARCs at library conferences is picking up a gem and having no idea you were doing it at the time. You feel like you've won the book lottery. And it's even better when the book rocks. That's how I felt a few years ago when I picked up THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX by Mary Pearson (Henry Holt, 2008). The book was a perfect mix of science fiction (light sci-fi, mind you), character development and mystery.
The next best thing about getting ARCs at library ...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
This was not the case for the Fox Inheritance. Locke and Kara were more intriguing to me than Jenna was-they were cooped up for years and then... didn't come back right? And the world had to get so much bigger now that we have fast-forwarded 200 years in the future and they have to come cro ...more
I tore through The Fox Inheritance, just starting it last night, which obviously tells you it was hard for me to put down. I loved hearing the story from Locke's point of view (and thankful for Pearson's subtle reminders from the 1st book since it had been so long since I last read it). I'm a huge fan of futuris ...more
All in all it's - like Tatiana already stated - a more o ...more
The setup is: Kara and Locke have had their minds copied and stored in little black boxes of electronics for 260 years. They've only now been uploaded into new bodies. The first section of the book is the two of them on the es ...more
Book 2 was good, but it didn't recapture what I felt in book 1 - that feeling of synchronicity with a character, where the thoughts are understandable and the decisions make sense, given the situation. With book 2, Locke was all over the place.
Don't get me wrong, he's a nice enough guy. But he's gullible an ...more

The How and Why of all things, past..."- Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Renascence"
Setting:Boston, Massachusetts and Oak Creek, California; the future.
Coverly Love?:Yes; it has an intriguing quality about it.
Plot:Jenna Fox was not the only one involved in the car accident that night. There were also her two best friends: Locke Jenkins and Kara Manning. And while Jenna Fox survived and was reborn as the new Jenna Fox, Locke and Kara both died... or so we were told. ...more
Distraught over the loss of her friends, Jenna threw the boxes into the pond. But unknown to her, someone ...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
-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
