    One thought on “Glitch”

    1. Warning Possible spoilers but do you really want to read this sigh Oh, Glitch When reading a book, however horrible that book might be, I do try to find something even slightly redeemable, that could save the book from falling into my one star abyss Unfortunately, I truly found nothing likable or redeemable in this book I ll be splitting my review of Glitch into four categories, and analyze each one Those four categories are the characters, the relationships, the writing, and the plot world buil [...]

    2. I d like to be able to say that this is one for those readers seeking a solid dystopian YA with strong sci fi elements, but in truth, this Glitch is not that book At best it s an on trend, marketable novel aimed at fans of Matched and the like At worst, it s a formulaic, clich riddled book I feel like I ve read several times before While the premise of a community hooked up to a shared network that essentially rids them of individual emotional and thought seems promising, the inconsistencies in [...]

    3. St Martin s Press After Ever and House Of Night, treadverylightly You might be able to pull off shitty Paranormal books, but when it comes to Dystopia, don t mess it up OR ELSE Edit, 18th Aug Wow Looking at the reviews, I was spot on I m telling you, the person working at this publishing house needs to be fired or something.

    4. 3.75 starsGlitch is a very interesting and fascinating novel I wasn t really into dystopian novel which are about, uh, how am I going to describe it robot like people cyborg computer chips and stuffs Something like that, you get it right Like Skinned or Cinder Although I heard really a lot of good things about the latter and am planning to read it soon Themes like that just don t appeal on me that much But when I saw this on my friend s blog s WoW, I find it really interesting and appealing I ha [...]

    5. April 19 Got a Galley for this from Netgalley so I m going to give it a go Thank you to St Martin s Going in with no expectations I m sorry, I just couldn t get into this It s a DNF for me.It s your typical dystopian lite fiction, except the publishers want to make you believe otherwise because there are science fiction lite elements in it But really, it s the same old same old.Controlling political entity that is vaguely controlling everyone The main character is your typical special snowflake [...]

    6. This book was probably definitely intended to a younger audience so there is no surprise that I found it to be a bit juvenile at parts Based on this I really had a hard time rating it, as there were things that I really liked, but there were some things I simply needed to skip.If you are in your teen years and you haven t come across too many dystopian books then you probably will love this book, so just pick it up and surprise yourself by enjoying it.As for me, I am not a teen and I ve been rea [...]

    7. Caution Rant ahead proceed at your own cost.Shhh Don t tell anyone, but the truth is I couldn t didn t finish the book I got halfway in, then decided I couldn t take it any To start with what I liked, I was glad when the book started, Zoel was already glitching I didn t want to go through pages of blankness and robotic ness I m glad the Zoel started questioning everything before Adrien came The story premise was interesting and I can honestly say I really wanted to read it That s about it.Ms Ana [...]

    8. Thank you Netgalley and St Martin s Press This is the first book on Netgalley I ve been approved for Yay Secrets were strictly forbidden in the Community Of course, it had never been a problem before, because we weren t supposed to be capable of secrets It was secrets that started the wars and almost destroyed the planet Secrets and lies and destructive passions But we were saved from all that We were logical Orderly.Secrets were wrong Keeping one was wrong But I had than that now, dangerous se [...]

    9. I really couldn t get into this Everything was so basic dystopian, the protagonist was a Mary Sue, and the romance was moving way too fast, to the point of insta love I tried giving this a chance, but it was just painful to read.And the way Adrien the love interest curses is annoying as hell Cracking , shunting , godlam d , and many weird ass words I was yelling SHUT UP at him the whole time.It really was too painful for me to finish, but most of you YA dystopian fans out there would probably e [...]

    10. Glitch was one of my most anticipated books for this year, and I am extremely glad to say that it completely lived upd even surpassed all of my expectations D As I always do when I read dystopians I payed attention to the way that the world has changed and how the author has crafted their worldd I loved the way that Heather Anastasiu created hers She described it so well, and made it stand out I could actually picture it the way Zoe did, with everything grey and monotone until she glitched, and [...]

    11. Wow just wow I am totally stunned that Heather Anastasiu managed to take a story that I have read a thousand times and make it new and exciting I am completely blown away in a very very good way.This story is amazing I got completely lost in the wonderful storytelling and I really felt like nothing was left out That is a hard thing to say because usually I can always find one area where I wanted or needed to know but this author did an amazing job at informing the reader and building a world wi [...]

    12. You know that feeling when you get an ARC copy of a book that you ve been fantasising about since you first heard of it Yeah, that one That s how I was when I was approved to read Glitch by St Martin s Press.As random as it may sound, one of the things I love most about dystopian fiction is the setting of the world that we now live in, and Heather has portrayed possibly one of my favourite scenarios to date A society which is controlled by what the government says is right and wrong every move d [...]

    13. Originally posted at my blogMichelle s Paranormal Vault of Books Expected publication date August 7th 2012 by St Martin s PressBy Heather AnastasiuI really enjoyed this story, It took me a short time to get into it, once I was able to actually read it, as its an ARC advanced readers copy from NetGalley and it was in a format for computer only, and I have a hard time reading on the computer I finally got it on my Kindle, but took some work to get it there, so I was able to really read it at that [...]

    14. My official comments GLITCH kept me up long past bedtime with its quick pace, wonderfully creepy technology, and a frighteningly believable world Fans of dystopian novels will love this delightful debut.My unofficial comments THOSE CHIPS ARE FREAKING SCARY D D D

    15. Right away, I was hooked on the circumstances of Glitch The Community Corp has taken the liberties of rescuing people and putting them in a controlled environment underground from the nuclear war that destroyed the Old World Each person is given a V chip that suppresses their emotions They are Linked In and all is orderly.Then there are people who glitch who somehow are able to override the V chip Zoel, a 17 year old, has been glitching for a few months So far, she has successfully hidden it The [...]

    17. Recommended for People who liked the concept of Matched but were bored by it, sci fi dystopia fans, those who like fast paced reading without too much deep thought, Delirium fansWhat if the future consisted of everyone living in underground cities What if everyone was Linked up to a sort of internet database through a port in the back of our necks What if we were all programmed to feel nothing, the only emotion being physical pain Would a world of mindless peace be worth it Or would it be hell G [...]

    18. Holy s I LOVED this book This is my first time reading a Sci Fi Fantasy type book and OMFG Heather Anastasui has rocked my world I have seen many mixed reviews and a lot of people didn t like this book but I honestly loved it Zoe kept me super interested the whole time I couldn t stop flipping the pages.Zoel is apart of the Community where everyone is inserted with a V Chip which keeps them from feeling human emotions and connected to The Link That is until she starts Glitching and feeling human [...]

    19. See of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.My Thoughts My initial thoughts on the synopsis were YAY for dystopias Then as I was reading it, I wasn t too sure what to make of it It started out slightly boring, Zoe was a bit dull, but it might have been just because she was confused at what was happening to her with the glitching Then it suddenly picked up and I got sucked in trying to understand the composition of this society and the cracks in its walls.The point where it pick [...]

    20. 3.5 starsIt has been two months since Zoel started glitching Whenever she glitches, her senses become sharper She can see colors in things, tastes food, and feel emotion she doesn t know what to call Zoel knows that she has to report herself, but she keeps delaying it She doesn t want to be deactivated yet She will hide her glitching, although it means that she has to betray her community.When an aquamarine eyed boy, Adrien, saves her from deactivation, Zoel follows him to his home and learns th [...]

    21. I Love Sci fi Dystopia, and Glitch is going on my list as one of my favorites Heather Anastasiu s world building is awesome I love the Old World, and the underground city of the Community it s totally fantastic I also love the characters Anastasiu did excellent with Zoe s character She made me believe that this is how someone would be if they could suddenly feel emotions after never having felt them before, and by the end of this story, Zoe was becoming a strong leader I think she will be a kick [...]

    22. There are so many amazing books this year, including this one An highly anticipated book, Glitch lives up to the hype I m very impressed with the world building of the story Action packed, Glitch immediately throws the readers in a world of deception I often wondered what it would be like it everyone were controlled And this story, give just that A front row seat to the story of the year I loved that along with a good moving plot, there are twist and turns the reader does not see With so many li [...]

    23. I thought this was a good read, but it was kind of unoriginel It reminded me all too well about the book Delerium by Lauren Oliver, even though i have not read it yet The story was kind of a let down, the idea was good but the structure was at some points just so bad described or generally confusing The characters had their charm which lifted the story to a better grade Zoel Zoe was a kind of naive, new to the world, charming person that had to adjust to a rather different world of feelings and [...]

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty A futuristic adventure, filled with choice, friendship, and strength, taken place in a fantastic world.Opening Sentence I felt it coming this time.The Review There has been a good amount of science fiction books I m a huge fan of science fiction, originating from the days of Aldous Huxley, Ray Bradbury, and even Douglas Adams When I was given Heather Anastasiu s Glitch to review, I was intrigued There were promises of futuristic societies, controll [...]

    25. This review also appears on Reading to Stay Alive Received from Netgalley and St Martin s Press for an honest review.In the world of Glitch, the people are closer resembled to robots, or drones than actual human beings The only ones capable of glitching are children and teens The ones who have yet to get their permanent v chip installed Our main character Zoel, better known to her glitching friends as Zoe, is glitching big time But not only that, she has a secret, a secret power She can move thi [...]

    26. In a world where humans exist controlled by the Link, a program that leaves them without emotion, glitching is a serious problem Zoe glitches, and as far as she knows she s the only one experiencing freedom from the Link If she doesn t learn to control her feelings when she s disconnected someone might report her and she ll be reprogrammed But that s not her biggest problem Zoe has telekinetic powers, and if someone discovers that she ll be deactivated Then Zoe meets others like her, kids with i [...]

    27. Finished it in one day Such a great book This was aweeesomeeee sings Glitch is a brilliant asset to the YA science fiction genre, and I bet a lot of you sci fi fans out there will adore it Glitch combines science fiction with some dystopian AND some typical fantasy elements fully explained by science, of course and mixes them up in this fantastic story.Zoe, the main character, was a badass She goes through a hell of a lot throughout this novel, and at the end she manages to stay standing Well, f [...]

    28. Zoe has grown up her whole life thinking that the Community knows best That being connected to the link and disconnected from feelings is the best way of life But Zoe likes when she glitches She can feel, see, smell things differently She know s she should report herself, she is an anomaly, and they can fix her, but she just can t bring herself to do it Zoe s world gets shaken when she finds out Max is a glitcher too and Adrien has a gift, same as her.Zoe is such a strong character At first, I f [...]

    29. OK, if there is one thing that creeps me out it s a super hyper ordered society Well, if I m being honest there are a lot of things that creep me out Spiders Weird meats The hair on the floor in beauty salons But Stepford societies are definitely also one of them And Glitch Is one of those Stepford societies For real It actually reminded me a bit of The Giver, which I didn t especially love I actually liked Glitch better but it has some of the same hallmarks Very repressed people in a very regim [...]

    30. This was an interesting sci fi story and I enjoyed it.I liked Zoe, and I felt sorry for her with both the glitches, and the way she didn t live what we would think of as a normal life I was so glad that she stood her ground with a certain person though, and didn t allow him to force her into doing something she wasn t comfortable with.The storyline in this was pretty good, and I enjoyed it overall I have to admit to getting Max and Zoe s brother confused though Two characters with names so simil [...]
