Recensione

“A tour de force of perspective and unreliability. The combination of supernatural abilities, clandestine organizations, sharply witty dialogue, and a supremely skilled heroine will be familiar to readers of White’s Paranormalcy books, but this story is very much its own.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Brilliant in both character development and narrative structure, this is a psychological thriller that will challenge readers even as it speeds them through the pages.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“A visceral thriller. White effectively captures Fia’s unpredictable, moment-to-moment existence, while Annie’s narrative is grounded but emotionally complex. White’s world building is as intriguing as her characters, making this a must-read series opener.” (Booklist)

“Mind Games is a thriller of the best sort, one with many characters vying to have things their way, who will go as far as they need to get what they want—and a protagonist who will go even further. A brutal, exciting gem of a book.” (Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author)

“You might think you know Kiersten White, but here is a darker, more dangerous Kiersten White. A sharp, heart-wrenching, lightning-fast, and fabulously fun read in which twining narratives weave a trap around two extraordinary sisters. Fia may be the angriest narrator I’ve ever loved. I bet you will too.” (Laini Taylor, author of Daughter of Smoke & Bone and National Book Award finalist Lips Touch, Three Times)

“From the high-impact opening, White hurdles her story forward. A fast-paced, gripping plot, and genuinely interesting characters. White’s many fans will not be disappointed, and she is sure to gain many more.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“Fans who love Evie’s signature style of butt-kicking, wise-cracking, headlong rushing into trouble, neatly mixed with her addiction to all things romantic and girly, will embrace every nerve-wracking moment. A sparkly gift tied-up with a pretty pink bow.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review))

Sinossi

Perfect for fans of Sara Shepard's The Lying Game series, Kiersten White's Mind Games, a novel about two sisters trapped in a web of deceit, was called "lightning fast and fabulously fun" by bestselling author Laini Taylor.

Fia and Annie are as close as two sisters can be. They look out for each other. Protect each other. And most importantly, they keep each other's secrets, even the most dangerous ones: Annie is blind, but can see visions of the future; Fia was born with flawless intuition—her first impulse is always exactly right. When the sisters are offered a place at an elite boarding school, Fia realizes that something is wrong . . . but she doesn't grasp just how wrong. The Keane Institute is no ordinary school, and Fia is soon used for everything from picking stocks to planting bombs. If she tries to refuse, they threaten her with Annie's life. Now Fia's falling in love with a boy who has dark secrets of his own. And with his help, she's ready to fight back. They stole her past. They control her present. But she won't let them take her future.

Originariamente postata qui: [...]

Mind Games è il primo libro di una nuova serie di dell'autrice di Paranormalmente. Purtroppo non mi era piaciuta particolarmente la sua precedente trilogia, ma questo libro, un thriller psicologico e paranormale aveva una trama irresistibile.

Forse avrei dovuto resistere. Non è un libro che boccerei a priori, ma di certo non mi ha soddisfatto. Ora vi spiego il perché.

La storia è incentrata su due sorelle, Annie, cieca dalla nascita e in grado di avere delle brevi visioni sul futuro, e Fia, dall'istinto infallibile e addestrata come spia e killer contro la sua volontà. Entrambe sono prigioniere di una organizzazione che le sfrutta e può prevedere ogni loro mossa. Quando Fia si rifiuta di uccidere Adam, le cose cominciano a complicarsi e le loro vite si trovano in pericolo.

Come dicevo, l'idea di fondo è bellissima e accattivante, ma l'esecuzione non è stata all'altezza, almeno per me. Le due protagoniste mi sono sembrate troppo stereotipate e la scrittura non è riuscita a diversificarle più di tanto: oltre al fatto che una di loro è costantemente sotto pressione e arrabbiata e l'altra non riesce a capirla, non ho avuto la percezione che ci fosse altro a distinguerle.

Fia è coraggiosa e forte, una guerriera arrabbiata con il mondo e con la sorella; Annie al contrario è pacata e non ha mai capito appieno in che razza di posto ha portato la sorella. Si vogliono bene e farebbero di tutto per proteggersi a vicenda, ma non riescono veramente a trovare un punto di incontro.

5.0 su 5 stelle great book! 9 gennaio 2015
Di Rachel - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I loved this book! I randomly started reading it, and then I got completely sucked in and wouldn't stop talking about it :) I definitely plan on reading the sequel. It reminded me a lot of the movie Push, which I love - gritty, supernatural powers, trying to stay a step ahead of Seers on the other side.

I'm not always a fan of alternating POV with each chapter, often because the different voices sound too similar so you can't easily tell who it is - definitely not the case in Mind Games. Each sister had a very unique voice, and I actually loved Fia's stream of consciousness, though I can understand some people could find it annoying. I believe it was a perfect way to exemplify her ability - not thinking ahead, simply reacting, a glimpse of her raw power and why she behaves in certain ways. In comparison, Annie, who being blind and a Seer is mostly stuck in her thoughts, was much calmer and planned ahead. Both sisters were interesting, and both flawed which makes for good characters. Most of the side characters were not very fleshed out though, very one-dimensional.

The plot was fairly predictable, with a couple small twists. The chapters alternated between each sister as well and the present and past. Often chapter flashbacks like that can be irritating, distracting from the current events. In this story, it really worked. Just like each sister could only see part of what was going on, and each new event made their visions or decisions clearer, so the flashbacks worked for the reader. The flashbacks slowly revealed how each sister, especially Fia, got to where she did, and explained their behaviors. I enjoyed both past and present thoroughly.

Also, to note, no spelling issues. Yay! (Some grammar oddities were on purpose for Fia's stream of consciousness narration.)

After their parents’ death, Fia and Annie were first taken in by their aunt, until a school came with a very tempting offer to Annie. Blind, Annie could only see when she had visions, and the first she had was of their parents crashing their car and dying. This is how the mysterious school found out about her, but they are soon even more interested by Fia, who is adamant Annie shouldn’t move in and start her education. The atmosphere was no good, and Fia’s instincts make her valuable in ways she cannot begin to imagine. Mind Games is chilling from the start, and the fact that they are being played with is apparent straight away.

When they have been in school for a while, Annie, too realizes this is not a good place to be, especially when Fia has to start training in ways neither of them can completely comprehend. One day when their class is on a field trip, Fia is told to leave a little package in a woman’s bag and then leave. Mind Games ups the ante from there on, as the package contains a bomb, and Fia understands that she is a part of something very ominous.

Mind Games continues with Fia wanting to escape, but because she has been sent to kill a young man, everything has to be put on hold. She also doesn’t want to leave her sister behind, but she finds she is unable to kill Adam, and thinks that everything will be lost. She has to continue her life with her no planning policy, so that the mind readers and the future seers cannot see what she is up to, ever. And to save her sister, she is willing to go very far.

Never knowing whom they can trust, Annie and Fia can rely only on each other. Mind Games depicts a complicated world, with a very mean man in power of the school where children with different talents end up to further his very personal agenda for more power, more money, and more children. The writing is mostly in Fia’s point of view, both in the present and in the past, and she is a very intricate character to follow. We also get some parts from Annie’s point of view, and this is when we realize how much guilt she is dealing with for getting Fia into this school she thought would save them both – when in reality they are only pawns in Keane’s game.

If you enjoy paranormal with a dystopian twist, you should pick up Mind Games and delve into this dark world where the adults have no qualms at using children and teenagers to have power, and keep their own family and loved ones safe.

5.0 su 5 stelle Loved this new world and set of characters from this author! 4 settembre 2013
Di TSherm - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I really liked Kiersten's Paranormalcy series, so I had high expectations for Mind Games. I was so glad that this did not disappoint. I read it in one night. It did help that it was a shorter read, at least compared to all the 500 plus paged books out there these days.

The whole premise was very creative and I thought well executed. I've read some books that had individuals who could see the future, read the cards, or dream events, but never a story like this one. The opening scene immediately drew me in and basically from that point forward I was hooked. It was definitely intense and I just never knew when all the cards were going to fall down.

I really liked the characters. Annie did annoy me at some points because I just wanted her to open her eyes and notice what was going on. To me she felt so selfish in the beginning, but she was still a great character and I could see why she acted as she did. Fia is amazing! She was so young when they were taken in by the "school," yet she survived and turned out to be very smart and fierce. I really felt for her situation and her desire to protect her sister at all costs. Then there are the two men in Fia's life. I liked each in their own ways, but one of them I don't know if Fia can really trust.

This book really upset me in parts! Poor Fia is so abused and does some really tough things that eat away at her that she didn't even know she was doing or meant to do. I mean how could the head of the "school" abuse children like this and how could some of these people not see how wrong things were when they grew up. The effects are just terrible. I'm hoping that Fia does some serious damage in the next book.

If you're looking for an intense SciFi with some great characters and writing, I would definitely pick this up.

Content: Some violence and innuendo.

I was cautious about buying this book because I loved Paranormalcy, but I was afraid the author's voice would be the same as Evie's and I didn't want another Evie type character. I was very pleased with the writing in this book! The two main characters, Fia and Annie, have very distinct voices. Not only are they easy to tell apart from each other, the are entirely different from Evie's voice.

Annie was interesting and I never had any trouble visualizing her as blind. Whenever I "saw" things from her perspective, I felt as though I were blind as well. She's a wonderful young woman who tries so hard to care for Fia, but is unable to really understand her. She tries so hard, but Fia just keeps slipping out of reach.

Fia is brilliantly drawn and so tortured that your heart breaks a little every time you learn a little more about her. I'm completely fascinated by that character, and I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series and learning more about her. I think, with the way this book ended, Fia will start to really come in to her own in the future books. Be able to think more clearly and hopefully feel less tortured.

Overall this was a wonderfully enjoyable book and I would recommend it to just about anyone. It was a bit on the short side, but I really enjoyed it.
2.0 su 5 stelle Great Premise, but falls Flat 12 luglio 2013

I enjoy stories that explore the human experience, particularly those that explore what it means to be human. When I read the description, I was intrigued with the idea of super-human abilities, combined with a coming-of-age story of two teenage girls. While the story had some great elements and surprising plot twists, overall, it fell flat for me.

The story is told from two point of view (POV) characters, which in and of itself, tends to disrupt the flow of the fictive dream (the tendency of the reader to be so engrossed in the story that they stop seeing the words on the page). This can be illustrative if each of the POV characters adds to or colors the story in such a way that it adds meaning or understanding of the story, but in Mind Games, this tactic by the author was disruptive rather than constructive.

The first POV character, Fia, is strong, has attitude, but is broken. I found her interesting because of her brokenness, she is the true protagonist: she moves the plot forward. The second POV character, Annie, Fia's sister, who is blind, is considerably weaker. I wanted to like Annie, kept wanting to cheer her on, willing her to be strong despite her handicap, but it was Annie's handicap held her back and stalled the story. Had the author created Annie with the same level of strength and attitude as her sister, the book would have taken on a whole new life and lead to more interesting elements and added tension. But in this case, Annie's POV could have been completely removed and summarized with a few sentences and the story would not only have been stronger for it, and the fictive dream preserved.

Furthermore, the story starts with Fia's love for her Annie and her sense of responsibility for her: she has a deep need to keep her safe and protect her because of her weakness. As the story progresses, Fia learns that her captors use her abilities and those like her to further their own goals (which are never revealed) and they use the threat of harm to Annie to will Fia to act on their behalf. At the end of the story, Fia radically rejects this pressure and frees herself from her captor's control.

I am not one to always need a "happy ending," but the ending needs to be satisfying and believable. Fia's final decision is not supported by the rest of the book. Every decision Fia makes throughout the book was to keep her sister safe and that unshakable attitude is the plot driver. For Fia to suddenly change her mind at the end in an effort to bring her captors down, is less than satisfying. If Fia was the only POV character and the ultimate sign of her "growth" was to be independent of her sister's disability dragging her down, (and if there were supportive elements to drive her to this conclusion), then maybe the ending would have been believable.

The book has some positive elements, an interesting premise, and some surprising plot twists but more could be done with the structure of the book, the relative weakness of the characters, and unsupported ending.
