3/5

Una historia corta desde la perspectiva de Michael. Que es un personaje que no tuvo tanta participación en la historia y del cual no conozco demasiado, pero que me ha sorprendido con su punto de vista. Tengo ganas de saber más de él en Enders, de eso no hay duda.

Bueno, ahora sabemos el por qué de la portada de Starters. Me encanta Michael, no sé por qué pero siento que este chico nos va a sorprender en Enders.

Michael is a starter, and an artist. In a world ravaged by the Spore Wars, Michael lost his parents. Only the young and old remain. Most of the young appear to have nothing, and are unable to work but the old appear to be well off. Only a select few young who have been claimed by distant relatives seem to be well off. Michael lives with his friend Callie and her younger brother Tyler. When Callie asks Michael to watch her sick brother for the day, but wont tell him what she is up to he is worrie ...more

I haven't read yet the others books in the series, but I really like the world that Lissa Price has created. I liked to read an extract with Michael's point of view. It left me wanting to know more about it and read the entire books! If you hadn't read yet the entire books in the series you can read this before, like I did. It's very quick but really good. And maybe some day I'll read the series. :)

Me gusto mucho esta ¿mini novela? Yo lo tomaria como un capitulo desde el punto de vista de Michael.
Leer estas pocas paginas fue increible porque Starters es de mis libros favoritos y este capitulo me hizo recordar cosas y ese dibujo :') #Feelings
Ahora mas que nunca necesito leer Enders.

Como historia corta es realmente buena pues vemos el inicio del primer libro y no solo eso, sino desde el punto de vista de Mishael, el amigo de Callie. Además de que entiendes el por qué de la portada de Starters. Ves aquí los sentimientos de protección, cariño y amor de Mishael a Callie.

Diese kurze Geschichte erweist sich als kurze, parallel laufende Geschichte zum Anfang des Romans "Enders", allerdings eine die man nicht zwingend lesen muss. Der Starter Michael ist leidenschaftlicher Zeichner und bringt immer mal wieder das ein oder andere Porträt zu Papier. Aus seiner Sicht wird diese Geschichte auch geschildert. Sein Lieblingsmodell ist allerdings Callie, die Hauptperson aus dem Roman „Starters“ – nicht, dass sie wüsste, dass er sie zeichnet.

Tag für Tag kämpfen sie ums Überleben. Doch trotz aller Widrigkeiten, bleibt Michael seine Liebe zu C

Es una historia corta antes del primer libro en donde aparece Callie, quien es la protagonista del primer libro y Michael. El libro esta contado del punto de vista del chico, espero que aparezca mas en el primer libro.
No esta nada mal, puede que me agrade esta saga.

Portrait of a Starter by Lissa Price is a novella in the Starters series. It is about Callie and Michael before the events of Starters. It is a very good novella because it is told from Michael's point of view.

Not much to this novella. I read it after reading Starters. It's told from Michael's point of view and takes place just before the events in Starters. Nothing particularly revealing to make this worth reading. Jump right to the main book and enjoy!

Los Angeles del futuro. Michael divide una squallida stanza con Callie ed il suo fratellino Tyler. Sono molto giovani ma sono costretti ad arrangiarsi per sopravvivere in un mondo che sta andando alla deriva. Un'epidemia ha decimato la popolazione risparmiando solamente i ragazzini, definiti Starters, e gli anziani, chiamati Enders. E mentre i primi vivono di stenti, i secondi si godono la vita fra agi, ricchezze e tecnologie all'avanguardia.

Mengambil cerita dari sudut pandang Michael, tetangga sekaligus sahabat Callie yang suka menggambar. Sama seperti Callie dan Tyler, Michael juga tak punya wali. Jadi mereka sama-sama tinggal di jalanan.

Callie menitipkan Tyler pada Michael saat Callie mendonorkan tubuhnya di Prime Destination. (Seperti yang juga diceritakan di Starters). Tapi kemudian Michael juga penasaran tentang PD dan mengikuti Callie, ia menitipkan Tyler pada temannya. Apa yang terjadi kemudian cukup mengejutkan.

"Será que Cinderela chagara a cogitar a possibilidade de confessar a verdade para o príncipe na noite em que se divertira com o belo vestido no baile? Será que chegara a pensar em dizer que, ah, por falar nisso, Príncipe, a carruagem não é minha, sou apenas uma criada suja e descalça e essa aparência não vai durar muito tempo? Não. Ela tinha aproveitado cada momento. E fora embora discretamente depois da meia-noite."

While this was a short read, and I haven't yet read the Starters series, I am very intrigued about it. I will hopefully get to them soon. I would love to know the background and what exactly happened and why things are the way they are. Looking forward to reading them.

Oh, another crazy, fast-paced, incredibly awesome novella! I love a good dystopian book and this sure looks like one. It’s true that we don’t get to know much about Michael’s world and about what’s really going on between Starters and Enders—or even about what Starters and Enders truly represent—but the little information given through narration was so suspiciously curious that I, personally, can not wait to seriously start reading and discovering this book.

Portrait d'un Starter est une courte nouvelle écrite par Lissa Price en prélude au premier tome de sa saga dystopique Starters. La maison Robert Laffont l'a rendue disponible gratuitement au téléchargement sur un site entièrement dédié à la série, site auquel je vous recommande d'aller jeter un coup d'œil. Trop courte à mon goût, cette nouvelle propose une première incursion dans l'univers des romans. A lire donc de préférence avant de se lancer dans la saga.

Avevo iniziato questo piccolo prequel con il presupposto che fosse come qualsiasi libro "in più" di una saga, che di solito servono o a introdurla o a calmare gli animi esaltati delle lettrici che non stanno più nella pelle per i sequel,ma non sono particolarmente degni di nota.
Deve essere detto che di questo genere di libri (come ho già detto "speciali") avevo letto solo Fallen in love di Lauren Kate che avevo trovato carino, ma niente di speciale e mi ero fatta un'idea in base a questo.

J'avais beaucoup entendu parler du livre Starter. Quand j'ai vu sur des sites d'achat de livres numériques qu'il existait une sorte de Prologue au livre, je me suis dit que c'était le bon moment afin de découvrir ce monde tant discuté sur la blogosphère. Évidemment, cette chronique sera assez courte car la "nouvelle" n'est pas très longue en elle-même !

In questo primo breve racconto incontriamo Michael, che abbiamo già conosciuto in Starters. E' amico di Callie, la protagonista, e con lei e il suo fratellino cerca di cavarsela come può nel mondo devastato da una terribile guerra batteriologica che si è portato via tutti gli adulti, lasciando vivi solo i giovani e gli anziani. Il racconto segue il suo punto di vista con una narrazione in prima persona. Quando Callie gli chiede di badare al suo fratellino lui accetta, ma poi decide di seguirla i ...more

Breve recensione sul mio blog, a questo indirizzo: http://leggendariamente.blogspot.it/2...

Il punto di vista della narrazione è quello di Michael, amico della protagonista Callie, verso la quale lui sembra provare qualcosa di inconfessato. Lo vediamo ritrarla teneramente e dettagliatamente, come la conoscesse da sempre (e pare sia così) e lo vediamo allarmarsi quando lei sparisce e si incontra di nascosto con un ragazzo ricco, un ragazzo che non è come loro, uno Starter, una specie di reietto ch

Lissa Price has a few “Unhidden Stories” from the world of Starters that supposedly were hidden once upon a time but have become unhidden as she and/or her publisher have released them to the world. Portrait of a Starter is one of them. I don’t know if they’re just e-books or not. I could look it up, but I won’t. I borrowed them in e-form from the Chicago Public Library and that means they were electronic and free and that’s so convenient I just let it go.

Dean Koontz called this YA futuristic thriller “a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” The LA Times said it is “Dystopian science-fiction at its best,” and “Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to ‘The Hunger Games’ will find it here.”
