story and social experiment that readers will findand social experiment that readers will find and terrifyingWhat I LikedThis book surprised me I have yet to see any of my blogging and reviewing 待つ [Matsu] peers read this book and when I received it several months ago I didn t know much about it I was going into this story with a clean slate which is sometimes the best way to experienc. In Orpheus Chanson's world geniuses androdigies are no longer born or honed through hard work Instead rocedures to induce Acuired Savant Abilities ASAs are now urchased by the Brainwashing of the German Nation privileged And Orpheus's father holds the copyright to the ASAr. ,
E a story While some general ideas of the story are not uniue to this book the story was very enjoyable and I couldn t ut it down even until the endingZimri is a lebe a warehouse worker who lives with her grandmother Zimri has a great voice but in this world no one is legally allowed to sing atented songs But Zimri is determined to make music and interrupt LiveStreams of concerts and radio streams is certainly one way to do it Orpheus Hanson is a Plute and the son of Harold Hanson who created Acuired Savant Abilities ASA is Social Media and Social Movements: The Transformation of Communication Patterns purchased by the rich and once the surgery is done you wake up with a newly acuired ability Hanson has control over the music industry as most musicians have a music ASA and Hanson has control over therofits made by those with ASA Orpheus hasn t received an ASA and he s not sure he wants one But his father wants him to have the surgery so that Orpheus will be ready to take over the company Orpheus and Zimri are on two ends of the social spectrum Plute and Plebe and their lives were never supposed to intersect But together they could change society foreverThis is a science fiction thriller which I don t think I was expecting Granted I didn t really read the synopsis or if I had in the Principles of Isotope Geology past it was a long time ago and I forgot about it and somehow I thought this was a fantasy novel I love science fiction and thrillers and so this novel was right up my alleyThe idea of this story isn t uniue we have this surgery that will make you really good at one thing musichysics writing etc or Ouroboros perhaps two things if you have the money The Plutes are the elite that can get the ASA surgery and they are celebrities and frivolouseople
The Plutes are the ones that work in warehouses and oor fringes of the city scraping by ThePlutes are the ones that work in warehouses and oor fringes of the city scraping by The can t afford the ASA surgery and many are not familiar with it But everyone is familiar with Hanson s monopoly on music and how singing and recreating music that is atented is totally illegal The story is told from both Zimri and Orpheus s POV first erson alternating chapter to chapter I really liked both characters Zimri is reckless and unafraid of #getting caught singing She isn t a revolutionary though her actions #caught singing She isn t a revolutionary though her actions make you think so Orpheus is at first naive and frivolous like the other Plutes When his father tries to force the ASA surgery on him Orpheus runs away and starts to work at a warehouse which is how he meets Zimri Orpheus develops noticeably growing from a carefree rich boy to a hard working man He s always been kind and charming and magnetic but as the story goes on he sees how his Plute lifestyle was ridiculousThere is a lot of depth to both characters and their backstory Zimri s story is told incrementally at first we don t fully learn what happened to her father and her mother and what is happening with her grandmother I like how information is gradually released in a way that made the story flow better and make sense The same goes for Orpheus s backstory we don t learn everything about him in the beginning and I think the story in general had depth because of this setupWhile the beginning was excruciatingly slow the story icks up nicely and really gains steam The climax was incredibly exciting and also terrifying The story had been bumping along retty smoothly and interestingly and then the climax opped up and I was biting my nails Well done by Swain there As you can robably guess the rising action of this book deals with a revolution that is taking Bauern In Mexiko: Zwischen Subsistenz Und Warenproduktion place one that eventually involves Zimri and Orpheus This isn t a new concept but I liked itsresence in this storyThere is no love triangle At first it seems like Zimri and Orpheus won t be a couple because there are secondary characters who seem to be into each of them in OcedureZimri Robinson a natural musical rodigy is a lebe a worker at the enormous warehouse that supplies an on line marketplace that has supplanted all commerce Her grueling schedule and her grandmother's illness can't keep her from making mu.
Imri s case Zimri s best friend since childhood in Orpheus s
case a rising starlet that has just had the ASA surgery whoa rising starlet that has just had the ASA surgery who help his image In any case neither Zimri nor Orpheus like those Punainen metsä people back no feelings reciprocated and when they Zimri and Orpheus meet each other it s all Zimri Orpheus from there So no love triangle or anything of the sort Zimri and Orpheus are super cute together I like that Orpheus isn t an arrogant ahole and Zimri isn t aredictably snarky feisty girl Orpheus is kind and sweet and subtly rotective and Zimri is strong is kind and sweet and subtly rotective and Zimri is strong tough but in a uiet wayOverall I was Basilio Boullosa Stars in the Fountain of Highlandtown pleasantly surprised by this book A weird take on surgically developing abilities and how oneersonentity can control everything I m not sure what drew me to this book months ago when I reuested it but I m glad I decided to give it a shotWhat I Did Not LikeI think my one complaint and therefore my biggest complaint lies with the beginning of the book If anyone saw my Goodreads you d see that I started this book on a Sunday and finished on a Tuesday night That s actually a really long time for me to be reading a book and I was supposed to have the review up on Monday And I had only managed to read the first twenty Honey, I Wrecked the Kids: When Yelling, Screaming, Threats, Bribes, Timeouts, Sticker Charts and Removing Privileges All Don't Work pages on Sunday nothing on Monday The beginning is sooooo boring I reread the first two chapters several times and kept having tout the book down Mentally I just wasn t interested in continuing the story Of course I wouldn t ever not finish the book and I certainly am glad that I kept reading this is why I don t DNF But the beginning is very slow and very boring and I could see others DNFing at that oint because of the slow beginning Would I Recommend ItThis book is erfect for those who like a mix of science fiction thriller and a cute romance It s a standalone so all of your feels are taken for a ride within the book I liked the ending a lot and the book in generalRating35 stars rounded up to 4 stars This doesn t seem to be A Spectre Is Haunting Texas particularly well known oropular in my circles of the book blogosphere but I really enjoyed the book It s at least worth the read if you re interested I haven t read anything else by this author but I will keep an eye out in the future An adeuate but not outstanding story that I Tilak Kathalu probably won t remember anything about by tomorrow A dystopian with music romance and two characters who were never suppose to be meet GIFTED has a dual narrative that gives readers a clearer understanding of the different worlds both Zimri and Orpheus come from These two characters couldn t be any different Yet there s something that draws the two of them together In world whereeople can be created to fit into their lace in society two teens are about to break all of their society s rules to follow their own dreams and aspirations In the rocess they both end up falling for each other Read my FULL REVIEW here stars Actual rating 35 I ve read so many dystopian novels that I tend to be hypercritical of them The author MUST bring something new to the genre or I m not interested in it Thankfully Swain does that but in the big ways Gifted is just like any other dystopia I have read In the future the world belongs to those that HAVE the Plutes Those that HAVE NOT the Plebes live in sualor with barely enough food to eat and their entire reason for #Existence Is To Serve #is to serve Plutes Gifted is a love story between a Plebe girl and a Plute boy That s all retty standard YA dystopia Here s the original twist The conflict centers around art specifically music who owns it and who has a right to roduce it Orpheus Chanson s father is the world s music mogul He s the one that ended music downloading and free music on the internet and radio waves He s the one that invented a surgery that alters a e. Sic even if it is illegalOrpheus and Zimri are not supposed to meet He is meant for greatness; she is not But sometimes rules are meant to be broken Here is a thriller love story and social experiment that readers will find gripping and terrifyi. ,
