Almost a four, based solely on the emotional responses I had to this awfully sad story near the end. The story being told through Tink, while creative, held the book back an awful lot.

My first Patrick Ness book to not get 5 stars. I still really enjoyed it, and 4 stars is still great. The problem is I hole P.Ness to a high standard, and I also just finished More Than This which left me in a whirlwind of emotions. The writing was g ...more

3.5 The writing is a bit juvenile, even for a YA book. It is an interesting concept and I kept waiting to learn more about why everybody is born with two souls in one body, and the background to how the world got to the point of anti-hybrids vs. hybr ...more

Bernard Beckett
“Are you saying a society wracked by plague is preferable to one wracked by indifference?”
Bernard Beckett, Genesis

Bernard Beckett
“I am not a machine. For what can a machine know of the smell of wet grass in the morning, or the sound of a crying baby? I am the feeling of the warm sun against my skin; I am the sensation of a cool wave breaking over me. I am the places I have never seen, yet imagine when my eyes are closed. I am the taste of another's breath, the color of her hair.
You mock me for the shortness of my life span, but it is this very fear of dying which breathes life into me. I am the thinker who thinks of thought. I am curiosity, I am reason, I am love, and I am hatred. I am indifference. I am the son of a father, who in turn was a father’s son. I am the reason my mother laughed and the reason my mother cried. I am wonder and I am wondrous. Yes, the world may push your buttons as it passes through your circuitry. But the world does not pass through me. It lingers. I am in it and it is in me. I am the means by which the universe has come to know itself. I am the thing no machine can ever make. I am meaning.”
Bernard Beckett, Genesis

Alana Siegel
“Make every misadventure an adventure.”
Alana Siegel

Bernard Beckett
“The more the media peddled fear, the more the people lost the ability to believe in one another. For every new ill that befell them, the media created an explanation, and the explanation always had a face and a name. The people came to fear even their closest neighbors. At the level of the individual, the community, and the nation, people sought signs of others’ ill intentions; and everywhere they looked, they found them, for this is what looking does.”
Bernard Beckett, Genesis

Bernard Beckett
“Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence.”
Bernard Beckett, Genesis
