message 18: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ Omigod, I would explain how much I love the book, but it would take sooo long. So I'll try to keep it short. *ah-hem: spoilers may follow*

See, this book isn't just "creepy" and "depressing". It really has a message in it. It has significance to modern issues, and the truly scary thing about it is how believable it seems.

Not only that, but I sympathized with the characters. I got so sentimentally attached to them. I cried during this book at least three times, and I almost NEVER cry ... especially not from reading. But WOW this book got to me.

I couldn't stop thinking about it while I was reading it, and for weeks AFTER I had read it. It kept me up night after night, just thinking about it.

The Unwinding scene was particularly disturbing. Even though throughout the entire book I was like, "Gah, I hate Roland!", I found myself crying when he died. The way it was written was just ... *shudder* WOW OMIGOD WOW I can't even think of a way to describe it. But it was truly unforgettable.

Seriously: This book is a work of genius, and it changed the way I think about life.


message 19: by Seth (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) | 30 comments I cried in many parts of this books . . . But I ALWAYS cry when reading books, so that isn't saying much ;D I do agree that it IS a work of genius, and it didn't change the way i think about life . . .

yeah, i didn't mean creepy, i meant more, "eerie"... kind of, eerily similar to the real world, because it is the real world, buti mean it seems so possible, the way shusterman writes it.... i dunno , i can't put it into words, dangit haha...




message 21: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ yeah ... it all feels so REAL!!! AAAH!!! O.O

The part that scared the H-E-double-hockey-stick out of me was when:

1) Roland was unwound- YEESH! It's so...creepy! And the worst part was when the nurse was talking to him. I hate that...it's just too...unnerving. And then, "You may feel a tugging sensation around your ankles. It's nothing to worry about." THE WORST PART- "You're going to have to stop blinking now." AAAAHHHH!!!

2) That one article, before Part 5 started (I think), when it had a story where babies were ACTUALLY UNWOUND...IN REAL LIFE. I almost screamed! I was so scared!

*thinks*
K.
First, things I didn't like.
-The story didn't flow very well.
-The ending tied everything up a little too neatly for me



message 37: by Squiggles{Kelly}, SMILE!! No one cares how you feel! (new)

Squiggles{Kelly} (squiggles) | 125 comments Mod
Everything else I liked I think!
Espesially:

SPOILER:










Everybody's favorite powermonger getting unwound








END OF SPOILER

It was fine when you were just *reading* it, like in the middle of the story, but when I look back at it, it seemed very choppy. Idk.


message 40: by jeeves..., is not a mod. (new)

jeeves... | 164 comments Mod

message 46: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ really? I thought the story had a good flow; it was unusual, I suppose, but it was interesting the way it was written. I didn't think the end was too "neat", either. On the surface, it seemed like a fairly happy ending, but when you think about it, it was actually pretty depressing ...

Squiggles{Kelly} (squiggles) | 125 comments Mod
It was depressing....but I mean, every thing was all tied up. And so obviously. He just jumps around saying 'this is what happened here and this is what happened her' but not saying it like that...idk. Just didn't work for me. *shrugs*

jeeves... | 164 comments Mod
psh, what-everrrrrrrrr... haha... yeah.


message 49: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ it's better than just fading out and not telling us anything ...
