This book was tolerable, nothing more nothing less; it reeked of averageness and basic characters. The plot was very standard and had nothing too original. The love story was, essentially, feeble and vain. I know I sound very critical, but this book deserves it.

A fast, and disappointing plot

From just a few chapters in the action began and questions arose. Questions that consequently kept me reading the book and wanting to finish it in haste. This book was a page turner, I’ll give it that,

I feel guilty for abandoning this book, but I can't push myself farther.
I think the writing style is awful and just elementary, and the narrative doesn't have solid bases. It's unbearably unrealistic.
I'm sorry because the idea behind it was good and LOOK AT THAT COVER IT'S AWESOME.
But I just can't.

MULTIVERSUM is an entertaining and thought provoking novel that transports the reader through a limitless stream of possibility and uncertainty, invoking a kind of paralysis of reality by which time and place are defined by no traditional boundary or scale.

With pre and post-apocalyptic elements embodying the plot, the omnipresent sense of doom is ever looming over the heads of the young characters at the forefront of MULTIVERSUM. The dynamic is such that each interaction between Alex and Jenny

The world of this book is so fantastic that I can be lost in it. Crossing dimensions, having different realities, travelling to the memories... These are the things that I want them to be present in such books of my favorite fantasy ones.
Mixing the scientific concepts with this book is fit well in this world. every detail is considered well mostly. No more sayings.
Read it and see it for yourself, the perfectness of the book...

I just closed this book and I feel like I need to read it again. It's the most bizarre book I've read this year and I totally loved it.
I flew through the story and if it wasn't for my migraine I could have finished it earlier.
This is one of those books that you need to finish immediately bc otherwise you will get lost somehow.
Is addictive, intriguing, mysterious and captivating, every turn of the page and you'll want more. I just don't know what just happened, but what I just read was

I received a copy of this title through the Goodreads first reads giveaways.

Ten Second Synopsis:
Alex and Jenny can communicate telepathically across dimensions. Pity they have nothing interesting to say.

I was really disappointed with this book and my expectations were not too high to begin with. My main problem with the book is that the two main characters are so underdeveloped it is as if the author needed a generic teen girl and generic teen boy, just picked random names for them out of a hat

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.

This book explores the theory of parallel universes, something I have not read about in YA fiction, but I find the subject fascinating, and provides something different for the YA sci-fi and dystopia readers.

Multiversum explores an interesting concept and describes it well, it has a good pacing, simple writing and is thought provoking keeping you guessing right till the end. The only downfall of the book, in my opinion, was its need for more

Just finished this and can only say - wow! A pity it ends on a cliffhanger and neither of the sequels seems to have been translated yet. If at all. If I was a nastier person I'd deduct a star for that - but not the author's fault. I borrowed my library's copy and while I think both boys and girls would enjoy it, I havrn't the heart to offer them the first of a series of which the second and third are only available if you can read Italian. Since our kids are African, Asian, Islander and such, I ...more

2 stars because I finished it.

I think this book would have been awesome if the writing was better and if some parts of it weren't so confusing. Maybe it is better in some other universe. But in this, it isn't. In my opinion at least.

Fascinated by the story for the long time, I've finally managed to get it into my hands. It met my expectations, as it was entertaining and exciting and that is what I've been waiting for. Some scenes alone were ... full of pathos. Also the way the author dealt with descriptions seems like something that Stephanie Meyer is known for.
Anyway, that was something I'm glad that I've read. Some interesting thoughts came through my mind while I was going through it.

It's a book about multi universes and traveling among them. Basically, the story of three friends who are capable of traveling in alternative universes. But it has nothing interesting in it, the book is so boring and I am definetely not eager to read the second book. The love story insinde the book is cheesy and boring as well. Even the nerdy part is so boring and not that informative.

SO GOOD! I didn't expect to find such an amazing story in this book. I thought it was a love story with a little (just a little) of science fiction but it was definitely more than a love story. The ending was soooooo good, it blew my mind and I can't wait to read Memoria. I din't really like the characters tho (except for Marco, I loved Marco) and thats why I gave it only 4 stars.

This book had a very interesting plot but the author’s way of writing it was so bad. The beginning of the book was tolerable but throughout the pages it became horrible.

Picked up this book because the plot reminded me of "Your Name". It was a bit hit and miss, but still enjoyable enough

Thank you to Goodreads and the publishers for sending me this book in exchange for honest review. This did not alter my review in any way.

Multiversum is the exciting, fast-paced story of teenagers Alex and Jenny, who live on opposite sides of the world and share a telepathic communication which has grown stronger over time. But when, after four years, they finally manage to arrange a meeting, they find that they exist in different dimensions, parallel universes. As Earth’s end looms closer and

Where, when and why? Do not ask, evolve yourself and learn.

Multiversum .... the title has left me intrigued since a girl gave me the booklet and dragged me to meet the author.

I had a lot of expectations about this book, I was feeling very scared that i'd might not like it.

Luckily iI think this book is very good, being the debut novel by a young Italian writer.

There were moments of perplexity, partly due to my curiosity, personal experiences in the computing world, also working with public in

Multiversum opens right up into the world of Alex and Jenny, seemingly ordinary teenagers if it wasn't for the fact that they could communicate in random moments telepathically, their voices intertwining in each others minds at any given moment. Although they can just barely utter a few words through these moments together - the far from nice experiences - one time, they manage to exchange their locations and place of meeting, and from there, it takes Alex and Jenny on a roller-coaster of an ...more

“Allí fuera, en los caminos del mundo, había miles de millones líneas, de recorridos de vida. Miles de millones de direcciones. Calles enfiladas, desviadas por azar, a veces interrumpidas bruscamente. Pensó que dos enamorados no eran más que dos recorridos a merced del azar. Podían dibujar los trayectos más absurdos en el mapamundi, dirigirse a cualquier parte y no encontrarse jamás. O bien cruzarse también varias veces y no reconocerse. Podían tomar el mismo autobús todas las mañanas, sin saber nada el uno del otro. Así hasta el fin de sus días, sin relacionarse. Pero bastaba muy poco: un intercambio de frases, incluso casual, y las líneas se habrían mágicamente unido. Dos grises trazos de un solitario recorrido se habrían convertido en una sola calle compartida.” 11 likes
“Son todas líneas”, pensó y comenzó a ver a cada una de esas personas como una raya trazada sobre un hipotético mapa. Un gigantesco enredo de calles que se cruzaban, se rozaba, se unían y luego proseguían adelante. Allí afuera, en los caminos del mundo, había miles de millones de líneas, de recorridos de vida. Miles de millones de direcciones. Calles enfiladas, desviadas por azar, a veces interrumpidas bruscamente. Pensó que dos enamorados no eran más que dos recorridos a merced del azar. Podían dibujar los trayectos más absurdos en el mapamundi, dirigirse a cualquier parte y no encontrarse jamás. O bien cruzarse también varias veces y no reconocerse. Podían tomar el mismo autobús todas las mañanas, sin saber nada el uno del otro. Así hasta el fin de sus días, sin relacionarse.
