So basically, this book did interest me, and that’s saying breayhe lot. Continue reading Show less. It shows her confidence in her book and her plot. The story could have been exactly the same without her, she contributed nothing – again, she was a waste of their precious air.

Bea was my favourite character; there was so much heartache she had to go through that I really felt for her at times. Crossan gives a very bare bones explanation for the state of the world in Breathe and it made no sense to me. It would be one thing if he went after her, but the way that he was more of the “get away from me, why can’t you see I’m not interested” type of nuisance.

A finished unsolicited copy was provided by the publisher for review. The thing was it deals about the basic necessity of life which is the air, specifically oxygen, that made the story more complicated and conflicted.

Breathe Book Review

Breathe by Sarah Crossan – 7th August 38 23 Aug 18, It was one of my favorite books this year. It is without a doubt completely unlike anything I’ve ever read. I really hate when that happens. View all 23 comments. It wasn’t just a background for the plot, but played an essential role itself in the story. She’s one of the most human characters I’ve ever read about and while in the beginning it was a rbeathe to identify with her, I quickly found myself darah into her character.


If this branch were to creak and moan and break under my weight, and I were to plummet to the ground, the stars in the sky would continue to decorate the world.

Breathe by Sarah Crossan – review

And if they did, yeah it’ll be very sexy for people to go clubbing in cdossan. And the answer was no. Is it any good?

Is it OK for kids to read books outside their reading levels? But what if you can’t pay? I wrote a proper review on my blog at http: When I first began, I was sure that there was going to be an irritating love triangle.

The world has no air. There’s a fair amount of violence in Breathewhich includes a knife fight, a riot, a couple of fatal shootings, and a serious beating. Quinn’s a Premium who’s never had to worry about having enough air. I guess Szrah was also a bit confused about the world in Breathe. I want books that tell a different story, have different kinds of characters.

She’s spent her whole life following the rules, doing what she’s told—until she meets Aline and begins to question everything she was taught. Thank you for your support.

Even the final battle scenes are sort of skimmed over, brushed aside for a neatly wrapped ending and obligatory segue to the sequel. Sarah wasn’t afraid to kill off characters, even characters who were important to our heroines and hero!

User Reviews Parents say Kids say. It ju Breathe is an incredibly ironic title. The story culminates in battles and clashes that end with losses, but the ending of the novel is so abrupt and leaves so many loose ends that while I could see where it’s left for a sequel – it’s not very inviting, especially given the lack of intrigue with the primary cast save for a few significant events.


The action scenes were well made if not a bit far fetched sometimes. With only two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, the trio must face drifters, outwit soldiers, and come to terms with the brutal strategies of the Resistance.

Love, lies, betrayal—oh, and death. The POV was a bit of a problem for me because Alina and Bea sounded pretty similar and I had to flip back to see who was talking. I will review it though. Alina is fierce and strong and fully committed to her cause. Instead of simply ignoring her and going back to his privileged life, where he can have anything, he too decides what’s right and he’s not afraid to risk himself for it.

I love this genre. I felt apathetic about all of it.

And I can’t put my finger on it, bu I’m normally a HUGE fan of just about any dystopian, and I was crosswn looking forward to this one, but it ended up really disappointing me because 1 the plot did not stand out, 2 I could not stand the characters and 3 too many inconsistencies.

It just caught my interest immediately. I’ll tell you why! Plot Like I said! If you read the book which you should!
