Cara Victoria,

teoricamente vorrei scrivere una recensione per The Archived, in realtà, credo che finirò per scrivere una lettera d'amore a questo libro. Non tento neanche di essere obiettiva.

L'ho desiderato tanto; fin dal primo momento in cui ho letto la trama ho sentito che questo era un libro per me. Non saprei dirvi perché, è stato istintivo. Per questo quando il postino me lo ha consegnato ho avuto il terrore di leggerlo: e se mi avesse deluso? Se non fosse stato all'altezza delle mie aspettative? Se non mi fosse piaciuto? Lo so, sarò anche stupida, ma i libri a cui tengo tanto mi fanno quest'effetto.

Ho fatto un bel respiro, mi sono armata di biscotti e cioccolata calda e mi sono buttata nel libro. E nell'Archivio ho lasciato il mio cuore, qualche lacrima e intere ore della mia giornata. Perché questo libro mi è piaciuto, mi ha conquistata e ammaliata e soprattutto non mi ha delusa neanche un po'.

Sempre in teoria, dovrei parlare del libro, della trama, dei personaggi, ma non so se troverò le parole adatte per farlo. Mac si è appena trasferita in un ex hotel ora composto da vari appartamenti. Un anno prima ha perso il fratellino, investito da un pirata della strada, e la sua famiglia è andata in pezzi. Ed è anche una Custode, ovvero deve occuparsi delle Storie che scappano dall'Archivio. Le Storie sono ciò che rimane di una persona quando muore, ma una volta risvegliate possono diventare pericolose.

La vita di Mac è fatta di dolore, bugie e solitudine. È così per i custodi. Era stato così per suo nonno prima di lei.

I've had this book in my wish list for a month. And then I gave up and bought it, seeing as so many good reviews kept blossoming. That was a double-edged knife, though: so many good reviews meant if I didn't like the book, it would be a double disappointment.
Instead, I loved The Archived.
Schwab constructed an amazingly imaginative world, where modern and fantasy mingle, tinted in dark, shiny shades. A book worth Neil Gaiman's hug, a book which can compete with Garth Nyx's Old Kingdom's trilogy. Well written, enticing, it kept me glued for 24 hours, and even when I couldn't read, the world of the Outer, the Narrows and the Archive stayed with me, like I was roaming it too along with Mac.
The characters are believable, well constructed. The writing is fast-paced, keeps you reading despite yourself.
The only criticism I could move -If I can even call it that- is that the book is too <i>short</i>, the plot too fast. It doesn't last long enough and makes you want more.
Now, while there seem to be room for a second book, the ending does conclude the narrative plot of the book. I wouldn't mind reading a second book, meeting Mac and Wes again, going back to the Archive to chat with Roland. But Schwab closed all the open questions, and she would have to be very, very good at opening new ones that were believable and as enticing, and still make the book gripping. Not an easy task.
Anyway, this has been one of the best books I've read in years, and I haven't been so glued to one since I read The Hunger Games trilogy last year.
A thousand times recommended!

4.0 su 5 stelle another vivid, unique, richly populated world by Victoria Schwab 31 marzo 2017
Di Beth Yacoub - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
~~~~3.5 Stars~~~~

I must be on a Schwab high because after finishing a Conjuring of Light I could find no other book to satisfy my What The Heck Am I Going To Do With Myself Next Itch...I ended up here, which was SO unlike a Conjuring Of Light...BUT...that's okay because this was satisfying on a whole different level while still having the Schwab(esc) prose that we fans have come to associate with her and love her eternally for. Anyway, a really quick summation: Archived is about dearly departed loved ones, their "essences" that are stored on shelves in libraries called...you guessed it, Archives after they do the actual departing... and the kick @$$ people who are learning to navigate the often times emotionally and mentally turbulent waters of Grief as well as acquiring and fine tuning the skills necessary to preserve said people/places and the Archives they occupy....holy run-on sentence...sorry about that all of you OCD grammar folks. Here is a sample:

"It hasn’t even been a year since Ben died. A year of words no one can say because they call up images no one can bear. The silliest things shatter you. A T-shirt discovered behind the washing machine. A toy that rolled under a cabinet in the garage, forgotten until someone drops something and goes to fetch it, and suddenly they’re on the concrete floor sobbing into a dusty baseball mitt."

I for one am constantly in a state of awe at how Mrs. Schwabs' mind works. Her mental gears must be pearlescent and Fabulous in order to create such a cornicopia of ideas. How does she repeatedly come up with such fantastical worlds and the characters to populate?- all of which are wrapped up in beautifully colored prose.

"you’re dying—not the fast, stone-drop way, there and then gone, but still. I can’t stop squinting at you, as if I might see the disease picking you clean, stealing you from me, bite by bite."

This was a good book. Will I continue on with the series whilst juggling such a daunting TBR pile that is populated with the likes of Laini Taylor and Adam Silvera? Probably not...unless one of those itches arises that apparently only Mrs Schwab can reach.

4.0 su 5 stelle I should've read this book years ago! 7 novembre 2016
Di Love of Reading 2017 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I saw this book years ago, wondered about it and it's cover, but never read it. You see, the cover is beautiful...but at the time, in 2013, I wasn't into serious reads. I wanted a book that told a good story...that's it. I didn't need strong writing; tightly plotted plots; and intriguing story lines. I just needed a book that was easy to read, not very long, and lovable.

Things have changed, thankfully, and I'm so glad they did!

My first Victoria Schwab book was "This Savage Song" and man-oh-man, did I love it! But after reading it, and only having a surface interaction with "A Shade of Magic", I wondered if me loving Schwab's writing was a fluke; I mean, I hadn't read enough of her work to see if she was consistent enough for me to fangirl for her, but this book has proven her talent!

In the world of "The Archived", the dead are never truly dead. The dead go to the Archive, where they are shelved away like books, along with all of their memories. In the Narrows is the place between the Archive, the area of the dead, and "the Outer", the area of the living. The dead, called Histories, sometimes get out and find their way to "the Narrows". When that happens, a Keeper, which our main character Mackenzie Bishop just so happens to be, is tasked with returning them to the Archive.

I have to admit that at the beginning of this book, I was confused. This story literally starts with action and world-building; nothing is hand fed to you, there isn't a prologue, and (most importantly), the author trusts the reader to eventually understand her world. This, among other things, is why I loved this book. The world of the Archived is so multifaceted that we simply have to wait for information, we can't endure information spills, and Schwab does just that.

Our main character, Mac (her nickname), is such a lovable character. She's strong and fearless, yet vulnerable and a tad immature. She recently lost her brother, is with her family who's barely dealing with the death of her brother, and feeling alone. It's only her job as a Keeper that keeps her whole, that is, until she discovers a mystery in her own bedroom; meets Wes (guyliner); and Owen, who was in the Narrows. From there, her story takes off and boy is it a good one.

Mac goes through common sense conflicts that blend well into Wes's own back story, the story of the hotel she's living in, and the overall idea of this book. I'm so pleased with the effortless execution of this book; not one page was self-conscious or half-stepped; every page is written with clean prose that's neither too wordy nor too diminutive. In a word, this book was so enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
5.0 su 5 stelle One of My Favorites by Schwab 24 ottobre 2016
Di Nicole Lay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

TL;DR My review for The Archived is a 4.5/5 stars, obviously being closer to the 5 star end. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. I think I recall hearing that it was recently taken out of print, which is a shame. I'll definitely be picking up the sequel to this, The Unbound.

The Archived, without giving away spoilers, is about a world in which the death of a being results in a History (with a capital H!). These Histories are like files, containing a persons life-- and just like any file, they have to be archived. We're plunged into a world filled with the people who make sure things happen the way they should, and that the Histories stay asleep.

I liked The Archived more than I anticipated. Which, is odd, since the synopsis made it seem like it would be right up my alley. I love works that play on the idea of memories, and this one went a step further, bringing in an entire system.

I'll break this review down into a few parts.

Cover: I read the Kindle edition of this, so I didn't have the pleasure of holding it in my hands and admiring the cover. I actually love the covers for this series. They're mysterious, yet pleasing to look at. I find the cover image itself true to the story, not too abstract or misleading.

Writing Style: I've read a couple of Schwab's books. I've always enjoyed her writing style, but it hasn't truly blown me away (I'm not saying it's bad at all). She tends to be information/building heavy at the beginning of her books and then gets into the action later. She also seems to write romances in an unexpected kind of way. I got the same vibes from The Archived.

Characters: I think the characters for likeable, and had some strong aspects. I liked Mackenzie's independence, determination and ability to learn quickly. However, I felt like I was left wanting with some of the other characters. I appreciate that they didn't steal the spotlight, but I would have enjoyed seeing more of them. Wes was an interesting character, but I felt like I knew very little about him, and he almost seemed to be there for a sort of comedic relief for a good portion of the book. I think there was sufficient character development with Mackenzie, perhaps more in the way of learning.

Plot/Theme/Pacing: I'm pretty okay with the plot of this one. It kept me on my feet, and I was truly taken off-guard by some of the events that happened, and I usually guess most plots I read fairly early with good accuracy. It was a bit slow to start, and a tad confusing at the beginning. Since this doesn't spoil anything, Da is not her Dad. I felt like that wasn't clear until a too late for me. There were some parts that I felt were a bit loose, as I wondered "but, I haven't heard about that in a while, I wonder where that will come back in". I do think Schwab did a great job evoking emotions: grief, isolation, hope, loyalty.

Recommended? Yes, I would recommend this one. If you're a fan of Schwab's writing style, or like some of the themes she covers (memories, grief, loss, hope, etc), then give it a shot.
4.0 su 5 stelle A Beautifully Written Paranormal YA 21 febbraio 2013

First I have to say that Victoria Schwab is an excellent writer. Her writing style really flows well and truly conveys the emotions she wishes to show. There are other Young Adult Supernatural Hunter kind of books out there and they have nothing on Schwab's writing.

I must have not paid enough attention in my research and prep for reading this book because I was surprised to find it set in the real world. I don't know why I was expecting a fantasy land. The only difference between this world and ours is that when you die, a Historie of you is left in an otherworldy library. Well I guess that could be our real world and we just don't even know it. I like when worlds like this are created, but I find the creator must be careful to make it seem like it really could be the real world and we just aren't clued in. Other media that has done this well include the Men in Black movies, Monster's Inc., the Disney tv show, So Weird, from the late 90's, and the YA Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White. It also has similarities to Kendare Blake's YA book, Anna Dressed in Blood.

One part of this book that I thought really fit well and made the story was the Da stories. Mackenzie Bishop's grandfather has passed away when the novel begins, but he was a big part of her life and interactions between the two of them are sprinkled throughout the novel. I like how Schwab used a different font for them and they were always relevant to the main storyline.

Schwab does an excellent job at creating realistic relationships. The family dynamics of the Bishop household are very broke and real. The interactions between Machenzie's new and old friends as well as the other residents of the former hotel are done well.

Schwab did an excellent job of world building and writing. Her beautiful writing style created such a believable world with her descriptions of the supernatural locations. I give this novel a 4/5 and I look forward to reading more from Schwab.

This book had an amazing concept behind it. It combines ghosts, libraries and a great female main character to create an interesting urban fantasy. The story is slow to start, but the thorough set up makes for an amazing finale. Personally, I had a lot of trouble making my way through this book because of the slow pacing, but I wouldn't discourage others from reading the book. If you can make it through the first half of this book, you are golden because things really ramp up from that point on.

Mac is one of my favorite lead characters of the year thus far. I loved her voice and how easy she was to relate to. Mac's story is also emotional and I had to blink away tears a few times. Her curiosity is catching and even though I had trouble sticking with this book, I couldn't put it down because I needed to know what happened. I liked Mac's parents were not the typical absentee parents and she had to work around them. Wesley is also wonderful and I want to read his story that Schwab has been promising on twitter.

The story isn't predictable which makes it all the more fun. In fact, I was totally caught of guard by how things panned out. I'm very pleased with the book and cannot wait to get my hands on The Unbound!
