Ask   Books   I want   Me   

[Formerly wibbly-wobblytimey-wimeystuff] Welcome to my blog of random stuff. I have many names: Hazel, Fuz, Kid, Sparrow... Call me what you like, although I must admit it would feel weird if anyone other than my brother called me Kid. This is a kind of mixed bag blog. I post anything that relates to me, looks pretty or makes me laugh. I am OBSESSED with books and reading, so you can expect a lot of book posts. I am a piano player and have a degree in Graphic Design so posts of that nature are highly likely (although I do not post my own work, I have a separate blog for that). I do not watch much TV but Doctor Who, Miranda Hart and Pointless (the quiz show) often grace my blog with their presence. I apologise in advance for the occasions when I spam everyone's dashboards with pandas for the benefit of my panda loving friend. I guess I do not talk about myself much but if there is ever anything you would like to know feel free to ask. :)

actually, it’s been psychologically proven that bronze winners are happier than silver winners! silver winners see themselves as being “so close” to gold, while bronze winners are just happy they won a medal. so any silver medalist isn’t as happy as a bronze medalist!

ok but it’s canada

Heather Hildenbrand’s latest young adult science fiction seriesClone Chronicles gets off to a good start in this book, Imitation. Raven Rogen is a shallow eighteen-year-old girl whose father holds a high position in the city. The main character, however, is known as Ven and is an imitation of Raven, a clone. The purpose of the imitations is to be available for their Authentics whenever they are needed, whether it is organ transplants or taking their place completely. When the real Raven is attacked, Ven is instructed to take her place as bait to draw the attackers out of the shadows. Although they may look the same, their personalities are completely different meaning that Ven has to try extra hard to convince people that she is Raven.

Ven is a very likable character and it is easy to feel for her as she struggles to live up to the expectations of Raven’s father. The book takes a turning point when Ven decides to run away with the help of a security guard, Linc, who she has fallen in love with. To complicate things even further it is not clear for a long time who the real bad guys are.

There were times when the storyline became really exciting but some of the characters were really annoying to read about. Although Raven was not actually in the book, Ven had to behave like her which involved being rather rude and sarcastic. Raven’s friends were also of the same nature. Other than Ven and Linc most characters were rather irritating.

The novel ends leaving the reader wondering what will happen next. It is not a cliffhanger as such, but it does leave the story wide open in regards to how things will be resolved.

Imitation would fit in well in a selection of other popular science fiction books that young adults have become addicted to. The ending of book one leaves us with the feeling that book two,Deviation, will be even more exciting.

Gramps doesn’t leave me. He slumps back into the chair. It’s quiet now. So quiet you can almost hear other people’s dreams. So quiet that you can almost hear me tell Gramps, “Thank you.
