  1. I ALWAYS KNEW I WAS DIFFERENT I groaned out loud as I read the very first sentence of the narrative.Davy is the picture perfect spoiled, pampered princess who is firmly ensconced in her fluffy, warm cocoon of a life It took no less than the jaws of life to knock her off the fucking pedestal on which she has planted her throne.This book suffers from two main things one of the most unconvincing premises I have ever read in a book that aspires to be a dystopia, and a heroine with whom I found hard [...]

  2. The thing isI don t think this author is for me She has a lovely enough writing even though her favorite figure of speech seems to be repetition and that one never appealed to me and this book sure was fast paced but the characters THE CHARACTERS I don t know how she managed to created something like 20 characters but make them all weak in characterization and likeability I mean, not to sound negative, but I HATED most of them Tori, the phony boyfriend, Coco, Nathan, Jackson, Davy s mom how coul [...]

  3. First glance boring cover but awesome concept Then OH MY GOSH Her hair is DNAaped like DNA As a science major this is blowing my mind Obviously I m a nerd.Now I love this cover UPDATE SHORT REVIEW A really entertaining book that you can devour in one sitting An average female protagonist fighting for her life in a not so average world If you re a fan of Amy Tintera s Reboot, Suzanne Young s The Program, or Kristen Simmons Article 5, then you ll want to get your hands on a copy of Uninvited.

  4. Maybe I m being generous Or unfair I can t decide exactly how I feel about Jordan s latest young adult novel Uninvited I recently had my low expectations trampled on by her impressive contribution to the new adult craze Foreplay and couldn t wait to see what she had to offer But Uninvited was a disappointment It suffered from flaws in the very foundation of the story and the characters, even though the author s writing was compulsively readable enough to make me sail through it in a day and sti [...]

  5. 5 BRILLIANT STARSLately I m in mood for YA Wow it was amazing The kill Gene was an interesting concept to me and unique From the beginning till the end the plot keep me captivate Uninvited blends together romance, action and science fiction With fantastic characters and an ending that keeps your interesting for the next book Davy Hamilton has the perfect life.She has her friends, a boyfriend that loves her and she has many talentsShe only has a few months left of her senior year and once she gra [...]

  6. 3.5 stars Fast, enjoyable read the Minority Report like premise is intriguing, and the action oriented plot keeps the pages turning Weird that there s a bit of revisionism in the story, though At one point Davy slaps her ex boyfriend and gets into trouble for it, but she explains the reason for the slap as something totally different to two separate people I also wish that some of the plotting dialogue was subtle and complex, that it wasn t so easy for Davy to get out of different scrapes, and [...]

  7. A quick read that leads us into a dystopian society where future killers can be identified with a gene test The last thing Davy expected was to be found positive her perfect life as a popular, smart, future Julliard student down the drain What I found very interesting about this dystopian story, and also one that makes it stand out from the others, is how it doesn t completely start out as one We get to see the actual developments of a very scary dystopian society where people s rights become no [...]

  8. May contain spoilers 1.5 starsNot long ago, I picked up Firelight by this author, and even though I thought Jordan was a skilled author when it came to her writing, her plotting was formulaic, Twilight esque and a huge waste of what was one of the first modern paranormal YA romance with dragons In spite of all that, I didn t hate it So I decided to give Uninvited a try Uninvited brings to the table a very interesting concept, thought provoking even It takes root in the endless debate of Nature v [...]

  9. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsCarriers are like a cancer to this once great nation And like any disease, sometimes the only way to battle it is with poison.Wow I ll be honest I was not expecting Uninvited to be this good Sophie Jordan s first YA series, Firelight, was not exactly what I had hoped for so I went into this one cautiously, a little worried that I would not enjoy it as much as everyone else Anyway, perhaps good is an understatement, even Uninvited is a refreshingly fun dystopian t [...]

  10. Ich konnte mich leider nicht dazu bringen, hier auf den liked it Button zu dr cken Denn gemocht habe ich das Buch schlicht und einfach nicht Ich mochte die Thematik, die es aufgemacht hat, das schon, und die Idee, dass Gewaltbereitschaft angeboren ist, bietet auch sehr viel Diskussionsstoff Was macht man mit den Tr gern eines solchen Gens Die Art, wie hier damit umgegangen wurde, war zwar an vielen Stellen nicht realistisch, aber sie regt zum Nachdenken an und das muss man diesem Buch definitiv [...]

  11. Fand es ziemlich gut, hat einen auf jeden Fall zum Nachdenken gebracht Die Protagonistin hat eine gro e Entwicklung mitgemacht, was ich pers nlich wirklich gut fand Bin gespannt, wie die Reihe weitergeht.

  12. Read here southernbredsouthernreadsuthernbredsouthernreadsThis book wasn t bad it was just okay The second half of the book is definitely better and stronger than the first half This book is an easy and a fast read But sadly a bit predictable I knew what was coming WAY before it would happen I also felt a lack of bonding with any of the characters I just really got tired of hearing Davy complain about how shes nothing now and has nothing WE GET IT and with that attitude you re probably right ab [...]

  13. Was f r ein geniales Buch.ich kann es gar nicht recht in Worte fassen aber ich fand es einfach super Dave, Sean und Gil sind mir einfach so sympathisch Ich h tte gerne jetzt sofort band 2

  14. I finished this book in 3 hours 3 HOURS I wanted to savor it I swear I did But this book, this story It was meant to be devoured Review to come soon Ms Sophie Jordan, I am going to take a moment to be ber creepy and say, you are the most evil, twisted, brilliant, amazing and absolutely FABULOUS woman ever I thinkyou may be a genius and I sort of love hate you right now, in the best way possible Ermrry about that guys but it needed to be said If you follow me on twitter you already know I m going [...]

  15. Meinung Infernale ist mein erstes Buch von Sophie Jordan Hierzulande ist sie ja schon mit ihrer Firelight Trilogie bekannt Ihr neustes Jugendbuch ist mir aber schon vor einige Zeit ins Auge gestochen und ich war beinahe kurz davor mir das englische Original zu besorgen, bis es dann ganz pl tzlich in der Vorschau vom Loewe Verlag aufgetaucht ist Mir hat der Start in die Geschichte leider berhaupt nicht gut gefallen Wir lernen Davy als ein M dchen kennen, das wirklich perfekt ist Sie ist schlau, s [...]

  16. A world so afraid of carriers, it makes killers out of the innocent 2 stars, but only because it was an audiobook and the reader was doing a very good job Otherwise it would have been 1 star.Ugh UGH Why is it that I so often start out reading a new book all enthusiastic and optimistic and interested, but then get utterly disappointed I honestly thought I was liking this book, I did, but after the initial world building was done and the characters were introduced, it all started to fall apart I m [...]

  17. Wow Ein mitrei endes, spannendes Thema, das ich so bisher nie gelesen habe und das doch so viel mit unserer heutigen Welt zu tun hat Eine dystopische Welt, die unserer so nah ist und eine Protagonistin, die von jetzt auf gleich aus ihrem Leben gerissen wird Ein unglaubliches Buch, das mich von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite nicht los lassen konnte

  18. 2.5If only it were that simple blaming people s murderous and violent tendencies on a gene that can be discovered through a DNA test.Honestly had a bit of a rough time reading this Not because it was a bad book, but because it was rather dark I ve read dark and violent books before, but this particular book reminded me all too well of all the shit through which our world is suffering It left a bad taste in my mouth I had goosebumps and the works.For example, all the carriers were rounded up, aft [...]

  19. This book Is just It s hard to form words because it is just so damn good I am stunned I was a little wary going into this because I had NOT enjoyed Jordan s Firelight Maja s review did re assure me to a certain degree and gave me the push I needed to finally read the book.Which I am really glad I did because otherwise I would have been missing out on a lot of awesome.The book reels you in right from the start It has a powerful opening that makes you want to read You have the main character fin [...]

  20. 4.5 starsConsidering my horrid experience with Firelight, Sophie Jordan s YA paranormal project, I started Uninvited a bit wearily, honestly not expecting much And yet, not even 50 pages in, I found myself wound so tightly I could barely breathe Jordan did an excellent job of building this mistrustful, terrified society Parents turning on their children, boyfriends turning on their girlfriends, best friends turning on each other, for no reason other than two recessive genes combined Fear and mas [...]

  21. Uninvited isn t a story about survival and murder It s a fucking love story Despite all of the lovey dovey bullshit, nothing about this makes sense The romance mostly drives the story with the typical bad boy falls for the good girl theme and the characters are beyond pathetic I thought this book would be exciting, action packed, but I didn t get what I wanted If I paid for this, I would be demanding for my money back.Davy is a mess All she does is whine and complain I don t understand the app [...]

  22. Surprisingly good Inhalt Davys Leben ver ndert sich, als sie positiv auf das Homicidal Tendency Syndrome HTS getestet wird In ihrer DNA liegt die Anlage f r eine hohe Gewaltbereitschaft, sie k nnte eine tickende Zeitbombe sein Von heute auf morgen muss sie ihre Schule wechseln, wird unter staatliche Kontrolle gestellt und kann vom Colllege nur noch tr umen Davy versucht ihr neues Schicksal zu akzeptieren, doch Verrat und neue Herausforderungen bringen sie an ihre Grenzen Auf einmal ist sie zu Di [...]

  23. 4.25 This is an interesting and enjoyable read This future would is very intriguing and it was interesting to think about what it would be like if we discovered a gene that predicts violence There are dark themes and this book brings up many topics about teen violence and the issues of the world we live in today.I liked the main character Davy, she has her head on straight and even though she had terrible things happen to her, she kept going She did complain at times, but I think it s understand [...]

  24. Die Charaktere haben mich leider nicht abgeholt schwache 3 Sterne daf r Allerdings 5 f r die Idee Macht schwache 4 im Durchschnitt.

  25. This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Lured in by a cool concept of a kill gene running through the general population, I thought Uninvited would be an interesting societal exploration of identified potential killers Unfortunately, all I got was a lot of whine and self pity from the main character Davy Bella Swan and Nora Jones has nothing on this girl, as I trudged through pages and pages of complaining and prejudging.I just can t believe this girl The very second sh [...]

  26. Unless your mindsent tends towards the Bella from Twilight only romance can save me girls aren t as good as boys brand of thinking, skip this one This book had tremendous potential but lacked all of the following subtlety, follow through on the most interesting parts , a strong female lead, and any character development whatsoever.It is also narrated in first person, present tense, which is the most annoying POV for me Your miles may vary on that one But first person present tense largely depen [...]

  27. Fast paced read that leaves you wanting to read the sequel I appreciated that the voice of Davy was not too young, and not dumbed down to appear young The action kept me on the edge, and it was difficult to put down Major chemistry between Davy and SeanAnd non stop action scenes that keep the pages turning very quicklywill definitely read Unleashed ASAP

  28. Wow The premise of this book is so fascinating I loved Davy She s an amazing character and I really came to admire her especially by the end Hope book two comes fast because it leaves you on the edge of your seat biting your nails.
