Descrizione del libro

maggio 2010
Arson Gable feels like a freak. He can create fire. He never asked for it. He never wanted it. But he can't shut it off. Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone. But when a strange girl--who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin--moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he's never had: purpose. Using what he fears most about himself, Arson must face his consuming past and confront the nightmare that is his present as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Dark, moody, and breathtakingly relevant, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated boy with unimaginable ability, is sure to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.

5.0 su 5 stelle Courtesy of Teens Read Too 9 marzo 2011
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Gold Star Award Winner!

Arson Gable is a strange boy with an equally strange life. He lives alone with his grandmother, who has some mental issues that make life difficult. Arson can also create fire. He has a job in an ice cream parlor that's going nowhere and no friends.

Arson's life changes the day a new family moves in next door. It's a couple with a daughter who wears a mask because of an accident that occurred when she was a child. Secrets abound in this story, not only for Arson and the girl, but for their families, as well.

Many readers may see the start of the story as slow, but Estevan Vega took his time and lets you get to know the characters, as well as their motivations. ARSON was an intriguing mystery that will have you looking forward to the next installment. This story was crafted over four years, and it definitely shows.

This is not your ordinary mystery/horror/supernatural novel. You can't help but love the main characters. I hope we don't have long to wait for the rest of this wonderful story. Although parts of the tale were dark, adults and teens alike are sure to enjoy it. I would definitely recommend ARSON to my own teen.

4.0 su 5 stelle Very Different 23 aprile 2010
Di Julia - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Arson by Estevan Vega is an exciting ride that gives the reader a realistic look at two teenagers with lives that are anything but ordinary. I have to say, Arson was not what I expected to my (pleasant) surprise. It contained all my favorites- mystery, romance, hope and intriguing characters.

Arson, a 17 year old boy, can create fire with his mind. He lives with his slightly psychotic grandmother and works at a cute ice cream shop in town. Though he is unsure of his supernatural power, he works on controlling it. He is constantly coping with the death of his parents- his grandmother and dreams won't allow him to forget the circumstances of their deaths. And just like the majority of teens out there- he's dealing with all these feelings alone and the loneliness is getting to him. That is, until Emery, the masked and mysterious girl next door and her argumentative parents move into town. Emery is facing problems of her own- constant moving from one place to another, parents consistently bickering, an alcoholic father... oh, and lets not forget she wears a mask. All the time.

So, we've got our two loner teenagers. Their first encounter made me laugh out loud- Emery "saves" Arson from drowning himself- she nose dives into the water to pull him out. Little does she know it is a common past time for Arson to relax face down in the water to get his thoughts together. It was a cute, awkward moment. Emery handled herself well ;) Even though these two didn't initially hit it off, they eventually find themselves enamored of each other. I found myself relating to Emery more than Arson and the rest of the characters. Despite the mask, I found her emotions and honesty the most likable- realistic? I am not sure if I can put my finger on the right word right now, but Emery is by far my favorite character here... Though she bit at my nerves at first. Maybe that is why I liked her so much.

This story is written in the third person and is very easy to follow once you get into it. I did find the first few chapters hard to relate to... I just could not connect with the story or characters at first. Maybe it was the introduction of Emery that changed things for me. Arson was edgy and has an insane cliff hanger ending. Good luck not dropping your jaw in shock- he sets you up perfectly for the sequel. This is all impressive for an author who is only 21. Way to go Estevan- and this isn't even your first book!

2.0 su 5 stelle Not enough about the main character or his ability 23 agosto 2012
Di Mother/Gamer/Writer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile

Review Source: Blog Tour
Reviewer: AimeeKay

I liked Arson...in the beginning. There were secrets about Arson and his family that kept me turning the pages. Plus I liked Emery. She was fascinating.

Nevertheless, as I got farther into the book I began to become irritated. The story keeps hinting at Arson's ability be we don't actually get to see anything of it until the last few chapters in the book. Instead the book seems to focus on everything else that is going on around Arson; his crappy job, his unstable grandmother, Emery's parents and their failing marriage. Some of it made sense. Arson's life IS one of misery and misunderstanding, so I see the author is showing us how miserable and isolated Arson truly is. But I didn't see why it had to focus so much on Emery's parents. I thought the book was about Arson, not about a failing marriage. It eventually started wear on my nerves because I started to loathe her parents by the end of the novel.

In fact, the only character I really had any interest in at all by the end was Emery. Yes she was self righteous, and more than a little big off, but she didn't whine about EVERYTHING, she stood up for herself. She had a backbone, something that seemed to have been beaten out of Arson. I understood how he was manipulated by his grandmother. However, I don't understand how he keeps letting Mandy play with his head. Especially after he decides he is in love with Emery.

It was just extremely frustrating. The majority of the book felt drug out, there is some action at the end, and then it just drops off in a straight cliffie. I don't know if I would want to read the next book in the trilogy. If it focused more on Arson and Emery, maybe, I still really didn't understand why it spent so much time on Emery's parents. I give it 2 and 1/2 out of five controllers. Overall, I don't think the author focused enough of the books attention on the main characters or the paranormal part of the story. A grave tragedy.

4.0 su 5 stelle Unique YA Paranormal Novel! 30 luglio 2012
Di Stephanie Ward - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
'Arson' is a really interesting book that focuses on the idea of a person being able to create fire. The teenage hero has a confusing and hard life which is made all the more difficult by his unique ability to make fire. He has to deal with the truth of his past all while trying to understand what is happening to him. Adding to the story of Arson is the strange new neighbor who seems to have secrets of her own. What is she hiding from and what will become of them both?

The storyline of Arson is unique and gives new life to the YA paranormal genre. The characters are all likeable and realistic, and we get to see Arson grow into his role in the world as well as confronting his dark past. There are normal teenage issues to deal with - high school, cruel classmates, crushes on cute girls - all intertwined with the much bigger plot of dealing with his ability of creating fire and what he believes he must now do.

Vega does a great job of creating a realistic scenario for his novel; one that doesn't seem quite so unbelievable. The narrative is very well-written and flows easily, making this a great page turner that I ended up flying through in one day. Arson is a great YA novel that explores how far someone will go to fulfill their destiny and save themselves.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

2.0 su 5 stelle Good writer, bad story 17 settembre 2012
Di E. Estle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
I feel the blurb for this book is misleading. It was like when you see a preview for a movie and think, "Gee, I'd like to see that," then you do, and basically all the interesting parts were in the preview and the rest is boring. I was expecting a paranormal action thriller, and this is definitely not in that category. (An example would be the movie for "The Bridge to Terabithia". I was unaware of the book. Based on the movie previews, and expecting a fantasy type story, I took my kids to see it. We were all very disappointed and annoyed.)

The author is a very talented writer. It is a pity he wasted that talent on this book.

I read this all the way through, though it does drag on. I did not like the main character, in fact, I thought he was an idiot. I kind of wonder if he's something of a knockoff of Holden Caulfield (I've never read Catcher in the Rye, but I've read one or two synopses, and I feel like there is a similarity here).

I did like the character of Emery and I rather wish the story had been written from her point of view. I can't imagine what she saw in Arson, he isn't good enough for her.

Finally, during the last 10% or so of the book, something actually happens. Another reviewer made comparisons to Stephen King's Carrie (I'm not much of a Stephen King fan, but I've read this one), and I'd have to concur. It's sort of Carrie, crossed with Firestarter.

Why did I read it all the way through? I wanted to find out what Emery's reaction would be to Arson's ability, that was the only thing that kept me going, it certainly wasn't any sense of identification with the main character. Having finished this one, I doubt I would be interested in reading the other books in the series, and despite the author's talent, I'd be hesitant to read anything else by him.

2.0 su 5 stelle Great Writing, Weird Story 2 luglio 2012
Di Mickey Reed - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Maybe this book just isn't my cup of tea, but I really did not connect with the characters at all. The story is all over the place due to multiple third person POVs, but it was at random intervals, so I never got a good grasp on anyone. And I totally knew what was going on with Grandpa. But what's up with Grandma? And why is Arson the way he is? WHAT is he? Too many unanswered questions. I get that it's a series, but I don't actually want to continue.

I am struggling with this, because the sentences were put together well, and a lot of it read like poetry. But when you put it all together you don't get a very good story. There were a lot of weird things going on: the girl in the mask, Arson's screwed up family, Mask-Girl's really screwed up family, Arson's screwed up "relationship" with Mandy, Arson's relationship with Mask-Girl (I'm sorry, her name is Emery..), etc etc. It just all seemed for naught. There was some depth missing that made me not care very much about the characters in this book.

Either way, this is definitely different. It's not overly romantic in the least, and the characters deal and struggle with a lot. They're all outcasts in some way. So try this out if you like stories with a lot of unanswered questions, like WTF is happening at the very end of this story when they're in the hospital.. seriously.
