    One thought on “Scatterheart”

    1. Dear publisher s , are you sure you had checked the spelling of the final version thoroughly before handing it over to the printers I am pretty convinced the historical young adult novel about a nineteenth century high society girl being shipped from London to New South Wales as a convicted thief of her own jewellery had been meant to bear the title Scatterbrain instead of Scatterheart Certainly, Hannah Cheshire is a bit fickle, too, as far as her ability to fall in love, recognise love and give [...]

    2. Hannah Cheshire is a young lady of Quality living in London, and the daughter of a Gentleman Arthur Cheshire is an important businessman, and wants only the best for his daughter Hannah is used to having the best, fine dresses and jewellery, food and servants Hannah has grown up with no mother and, apart from her father, has no one else in her life besides her tutor.Thomas Behr has filled Hannah s head with history, poetry, and mathematics as well as languages, animals and stories much to Arthur [...]

    3. Wow, this book was nothing like I expected, yet I loved it Judging from the cover and the name, I assumed it was a YA fantasy novel Even the back gives you the idea that it s going to be fantasy, but in fact it is historical naive romance But don t let that put you off What I found in these pages was a beautiful story, filled with ugly characters and situations that make you grow to love the main character, Hannah, even She struggles through such a fall, but never loses the essence of her char [...]

    4. I have recently been re reading books on my shelf from when I was younger Books I liked when I was 13 14, such as the Fault in Our Stars and Fangirl, I could barely continue after a few pages, however this book, which I first read when I was maybe 10 11, I keenly read all the way to the end The writing style of Scatterheart is about as remarkable as any another YA book However, the creation and development of all the characters, Hannah, Long Meg, Thomas, and James are complex, well crafted, and [...]

    5. A very unusual offering, with all the feel of a first novel, Scatterheart is a very different journey.Dealing primarily with the history and experience of those on the prison ships travelling to Australia, Wilkinson does tie in a personal story which is, if not always compelling, definitely enough to get you to the finish.A worthwhile read for anyone who didn t quite realise how interesting Australian history was until they read about it So there s a moebius style recommendation for you

    6. It was such a fantastic story but the reason I didn t give it 5 stars was because of how disturbing it is Only read it if you can cope with reading about abuse, sexual assault, mistreatment and other disturbing elements in expliicit detail Otherwise, a truly excellent book

    7. When I first saw this book, I knew I had to read it, just from seeing the cover alone I wasn t disappointed this extraordinary historical tale with a fairytale feel to it blew me away I finished this in a few hours as I couldn t stop reading.Right from the start the book hooked me, by not letting me know how Hannah ended up in Newgate Instead, it starts when Hannah is in Newgate, and starts to tell you how she ended up there, which was a great way to grab my attention and made me want to read A [...]

    10. I originally reviewed this book on my blog The Cosy Dragon For recent reviews by me, please hop over there.Hannah is Quality She is one of the born aristocrats of London, but her father leaves her behind A series of misunderstandings later and Hannah finds herself on a ship to Australia Hannah has always been selfish, but the long trip and the factories afterwards open her eyes to enjoying what she actually has.Hannah develops beautifully as a character, and it is obvious that lots of research [...]

    14. This book was Outstanding Couldnt put it down till the end, there were never a time that i got bored the story was impressively written by the author,LW A YA novel with a combination of Romance, Historical, and suspense I myself recently moved in Australia and hardly knew of its history The story was set in Old London, where convicts either get hanged or transported in the place called New South Wales which i believe is here in Australia east o f the sun and west o the moon the author said that [...]

    16. Das Buch sieht so zuckers und verspielt, so zauberhaft aus, aber lasst euch vom Einband nicht t uschen Es kommt keine Liebesgeschichte darin vor, sondern eine lange beschwerliche Reise der Protagonistin auf einem Sklavenschiff Richtung Australien Mich hat der Klappentext angesprochen und ich habe mich ernsthaft gefragt, ob das Cover nicht etwas in die Irre f hrt, denn viele erwarten bestimmt eine Romanze und Herzschmerz Gerade weil mich das Buch mit einer ganz anderen, als von mir gedachten Gesc [...]

    17. I, like many others, was first attracted to this book by the cover I love the whimsical look and decided that the book would be worth a go I know that you should not judge a book by its cover but sometimes you should I am in Australia and had to order this book from the UK to read it but I m glad I did.The story follows Hannah, a spoiled rich girl whose life is turned upside down when, her money suddenly gone, she is sent on a convict ship to Australia There is a lot of the book dedicated to the [...]

    18. I loved this It will definitely not be everyone s cup of tea but I thought it was beautiful Magic and fairytale woven into a wonderdul plot with realistic characters Hannah s character grows and matures so much THIS is what it means to have character development Not to mention all the characters Hannah meets throughout the novel they have to be one of the most surprising set of characters in a novel I ve read Those I began hating I eventually loved with all my heart AND THE FAIRYTALE ELEMENTS Ea [...]

    19. Historical, realistic, fairytale, disturbing all at once.This is such an incredible, unique, amazingly written story It s 1814 and a 14 year old London girl of Quality is wrongly accused of a crime and is sent to Australia as a convict It doesn t skimp on the details or sugar coat anything Hannah and the other convicts go through so much and I felt their pain, disappointment, sense of injustice and their moments of hope as I was reading There were times when I was on the verge of tears pleading [...]

    20. I thought the premise of this book was wonderful linking the fairy tale East of the Sun, West of the Moon with the historical story of a girl convicted of theft in 19th century London and transported to New South Wales The problem I had with it as an enjoyable read was that the protagonist is so naive for so much of the book, and although it s understandable given her upbringing a snob and a half, too That just makes for tough reading, or rather, it makes for a different kind of tough reading Wh [...]

    21. This was the first ever book I read in one day and it transported me to another world, even though essentially that world was the same country I was living in I didn t think much of historical fiction or Australian history until this book, yet I am now writing my honours thesis on both While this book does conform to some of the text book what it was like historical fiction which can be tiresome, the overarching plot shaped by Hannah s character development was truly wonderful to read I was eigh [...]

    22. Highly enjoyable historical fiction about a young naive girl, abandoned by Dad who has squandered the family fortune, leaving her alone and penniless Accused of theft, albeit falsely, she is locked in a London jail and eventually deported to Van Deiman s Land as a convict The novel follows her journey across the oceans and into Sydney as she searches for the one person from her previous life that she has left and whom she cares about her ex tutor Somehow this novel, although young adult fiction, [...]

    23. I thought that Scattereart was an okay book, however I found hannah too whinny and posh for my liking She doesn t know what she wants and hurts other people in the process whilst expecting them to help her as soon as she wants them aka Thomas It wasn t my favourite book I thought that it was sad what happened to meg and Hannah and I found my self wallowing in pity for Hannah and others.On the other hand, I thought that the writing was really bad, it got very boring very quickly and completely da [...]

    24. its been a while since i ve read this one but im giving it five stars for staying with me so longi think partly why i love it so much isnt just because of the Australian history element but because this is a book that doesnt need some dramatic love story to make me love the protagonist.ough when you think about it everything she does is for lovebut Hannah is a character thats so strong and who gives you such hope that even though its been ages since i ve read it i still remember those as her def [...]

    25. Hannah must travel east of the sun, and west of the moonScatterheart is a beautifully written novel about a girl called Hannah, set in the early 1900 s Hannah is rich and spoiled, when her dad goes bankrupt and she is left with nothing, alone on the streets After being sentenced to transportation, the story is about the hard, brutal life on the ship, where she begins to understand herself I love this book because it is so different to other historical fiction books, and because it is so well wri [...]

    26. The book was a bit of a disappointment The story of a rich, spoilt girl who is thrown into real life due to a misunderstanding sounded promising However the whole book has the feel of a delirium moving from one disaster to another The author touches a lot of very interesting topics but doesn t go into their depth which is a pity The whole story is like a airy fairy tale It feels like something is missing I was left wanting Still the story is intriguing and I guess the deficiency is owned to th [...]

    27. A historical novel for young adults that made me feel like a teenager again, because it made me remember one of my favorite books when I was younger, Abby Lynn by Rainer M Schr der Scatterheart, too, is a story about a young woman who due to various circumstances suddenly finds herself on the way to Australia, and it s a very unpleasant journey It s a good book, and really engrossing I finished it pretty much in one go on one afternoon.

    28. I hated this book so much that I was compelled to throw it straight in the bin Instead, I donated it to a library so that someone else could feel the strong rage that this book evokes There s something about the protagonist and her continuous naivety that drove me mad She was too dumb to be realistic and I couldn t put it down because each page brought her into an even worse situation If there was an option to rate it 10000 stars then I would.

    29. I m not even done with the book yet and I m lovin it like ANYTHING It s a very different book I m on page 208 yes, just before ch 22 and I love tht ending of this particular page SOO much Just one thing I wanted James to be a real, actualy gentleman in Hannah s life 23.9.10 Finally finished it today Awesome book Must read for romance thriller lovers especially teens I guess
