Recensione

Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments saga
"A sparkling, assured fantasy that will make you laugh and break your heart..." 

Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author
"Readers will laugh, shiver, and maybe even swoon over this modern Gothic novel."

Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author

“Breathtaking, heartbreaking—a compulsive, rocketing read!”

Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author
"A darkly funny, deliciously thrilling Gothic. Unspoken kept me up late, turning the pages as fast as I could."
                                                                                                      
Esther Friesner, author of Nobody’s Princess and the Chicks in Chainmail series
“With a heroine who kicks butt without ever being a ‘Spunky Girl’ cliché, Unspoken captures the reader with true magic: alluring, dangerous, fascinating, and breathtakingly real.”

The Horn Book
"Witty, take-charge Kami reads a bit like a British Veronica Mars, and troubled Jared, uncovering his own dark legacy alongside her, is compelling. Brennan thoughtfully and thoroughly explores the implications of sharing a psychic connection; for Kami and Jared, it's by turns comforting, romantic, and agonizing. After this first installment-full of mystery, magic, and nods to both the girl detective genre and gothic romance-readers will be impatiently awaiting the next."

Publishers Weekly
"A promising launch with a dark cliff-hanger of an ending."

Kirkus Reviews
“An enjoyable tribute for established fans of the gothic, as well as an enticing introduction for new ones.”

Sinossi

A modern, magical twist on the Gothic Romance and Girl Detective genres, this book will appeal to fans of both Beautiful Creatures and the Mortal Instruments series. Reviewers have praised the take-charge heroine and the spellbinding romance.

Bound together. Worlds apart.

Kami Glass is in love with someone she's never met—a boy she's talked to in her head since she was born. This has made her an outsider in the sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale, but she has learned ways to turn that to her advantage. Her life seems to be in order, until disturbing events begin to occur. There has been screaming in the woods and the manor overlooking the town has lit up for the first time in 10 years. . . . The Lynburn family, who ruled the town a generation ago and who all left without warning, have returned. Now Kami can see that the town she has known and loved all her life is hiding a multitude of secrets—and a murderer. The key to it all just might be the boy in her head. The boy she thought was imaginary is real, and definitely and deliciously dangerous.

Well, where do I start? I'm sorry it took me so long to read this. It's the perfect mixture of mystery, romance and action which, for a YA Novel are basically the most important features. Brennan has a very interesting writing and I love how she can mix old details of gothic literature with a more modern style. I will now go on with the reading and give a deeper review of the story after I've read it all!

Unspoken è un libroparticolare e unico nel suo genere. Se siete interessati ad un YA,Urban Fantasy che non ricalchi la lunga trafila dei libri pubblicatinegli ultimi anni siete nel luogo giusto.

La Brennan ha uno stileparticolare: vivace, semplice ma allo stesso tempo accattivante. Tiporta ad amare ogni singola parola ed a desiderare con ardore che illibro non finisca mai.
Caratterizzato da un particolaresenza dell'umorismo, tipico della scrittrice, un'abile capacità atrattare temi importanti senza sembrare pretenziosa e un'unicacapacità descrittiva, che diversamente da altri autori, non rallentala lettura ma la tende più avvincente, intensificando le emozionidel lettore.

La Brennan, da Inglesepurosangue, ci delizia con paesaggi della campagna inglese arricchiti e immersi da una straordinaria atmosfera Gothic.

Ultimamente il Gothic trattato nei libri era quello tipico del Sud d'America, il Southern Ghotic, diventato famoso con i libri con protagonisti vampiri e streghe della costa orientale degli USA, ma la Brennan è stata in grado di riportare in patria un tratto letterario tipico inglese, senza soccombere ai grandi maestri della letteratura come Mary Shelley e le sorelle Bronte, rinnovandolo nella nuova chiave Urban Fantasy.

L'atmosfera Gothic, inoltre, è amplificata dalle tipiche caratteristiche da libro giallo/thriller, i nostri protagonisti sono sulla scia di misteri da scoprire e segreti da svelare, in un susseguirsi di avventure, esperienze nuove, nello straordinario viaggio verso la verità.

Personaggi formidabili riempiono e danno vita ad Unspoken.

"Nient'altro mi è mai importato, e tu non eri nemmeno reale. Tutto ciò che ho sempre voluto sei stata tu."

Ci sono libri di cui non si fa altro che parlare per mesi, che ti consigliano sempre più persone e di cui finisci per conoscere la trama a memoria ancor prima di iniziarli. Unspoken è uno di questi libri e, con ogni recensione o parere positivo che leggevo, con ogni messaggio di raccomandazione che trovavo su goodreads, la mia curiosità e interesse riguardo la serie Lynburn Legacy non faceva che aumentare.

Sapevo che Unspoken non mi avrebbe delusa. E non l'ha fatto. Al contrario si è rivelato esattamente ciò che mi aspettavo: una lettura veloce e travolgente, che non può fare a meno di catturarti con una storia originale, dalla premessa unica e accompagnata da una buona dose di mistero, un'eroina ironica e coraggiosa, e una splendida atmosfera gotica che rievoca le ambientazioni southern di libri come La sedicesima Luna e Between the devil and the dep blue sea.

"Kami pensava di conoscere ogni ombra e angolo di questa città, ma adesso le ombre si muovevano, e dietro ogni angolo c'era ad aspettarla un altro segreto."

A Sorry-in.the-Vale, piccola cittadina immersa nelle campagne inglesi, non accade mai niente. Ma tutto cambia quando la famiglia Lynburn, fondatrice della città e proprietaria della vecchia e isolata villa sulla collina del paese, fa ritorno a casa, e sembra portare con sé strani e inquietanti avvenimenti...

5.0 su 5 stelle My Favorite Book of 2012 21 novembre 2012
Di jmsylvan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Even though it's only September, I'm going to go out on a limb and name Unspoken my favorite book of 2012.
In a very, very large nutshell (like a coconut shell?) Unspoken has:

-witty humor like Buffy and Firefly
-angsty drama like Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices
-kick-butt heroines like Kristin Cashore's Graceling/Fire/Bitterblue and Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games
-gothic atmosphere like The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield and Franny Billingsley's Chime
-and a whole bunch of other stuff like I DON'T EVEN KNOW

There are books which make you snort and grin, and then there's this book, which made me laugh so hard I had to stop reading. Seriously. I legit LOLed. But at the same time...it's so emotional, it's painful. I remember one part where Kami and Jared were talking...just talking, and no one was leaving or doing anything sad, and I was like, "You're making my heart hurt! Why does my heart hurt and you're not even doing anything?!"
After I finished, I was pouting, because I had no more book to read. I turned to my husband and said, "You know, those Mayans had better really suck at math, because if the world ends in December, my last thought as the random volcano swallows me up is going to be, 'But I didn't get to read the next boooooook!'"

Kami Glass knows that no matter how quiet her hometown, Sorry-in-the-Vale, appears to be, it must have its own fair share of buried secrets. Secrets that are just waiting for someone to uncover them. When the only living members of the founding family of Lynburns return to Sorry-in-the-Vale, Kami can’t help but notice the strange things that have accompanied their arrival. Strangest of all is the appearance of her imaginary friend, a friend whose voice she’s been hearing in her head forever and one she was convinced didn’t exist. When Kami stumbles upon a gruesome scene in the woods and someone makes an attempt on her life, she realizes Sorry-in-the-Vale’s secrets are more dangerous than she imagined and someone will do anything to keep them hidden.

Sarah Rees Brennan’s Unspoken is packed with hilarity, emotionally complex characters, and a mystery that’s sure to intrigue. This is my first time rereading this book and I’ve grown more fond of it and its characters because of it. Kami Glass is one of my all-time favorite protagonists, she’s tenacious, curious, and independent. The supporting cast is better for knowing her and she is most deserving of the devotion her friends and family show her. Prone to getting into trouble, Kami is charmingly cheeky, but also shows a level of maturity and levelheadedness other characters have yet to reach. Though some of her ideas border on crazy, her enthusiasm is infectious and her ability to recognize her mistakes make her a delightful character.

Unspoken would not be as complete without Kami’s eclectic Scooby Gang. From her best friend Angela, who’d rather nap than deal with people to the antithetic cousins, Ash and Jared, Kami’s team is well-balanced and each character has their own struggles and moments of learning. Jared and Kami’s relationship is by far the most complicated as each believed the other did not exist. It’s one thing to share your soul with someone you’ve never met, but quite another to realize that another human being knows every vulnerable moment you’ve ever had and every insecurity you hide from the world. Jared has been hardened by parents who’ve never wanted him and rumors that have everyone regarding him with distrust. His only solace has been his relationship with the girl whose voice he can hear in his head. Despite this, the reality of Kami’s existence terrifies him and he’s as much afraid of having her in his life as he is of losing her.

Brennan’s Unspoken had me laughing out loud, crying with its emotionally gut-wrenching character arcs and sneaking glances at the last two books, eager to read what other trouble Kami and her gang are sure to get into.

5.0 su 5 stelle A clever, mind blowing page turner! 17 dicembre 2012
Di xjessirae - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan is the type of book that creeps up on you and when you least expect it, you're so wrapped up in its goodness that you cannot extricate yourself from its hold. That's exactly what Unspoken did to me. The whole book is one big wonderful surprise that just blew my mind.

Kami Glass: eccentric investigative journalist and one remarkable heroine. 

She was the whole package with a little more. Kami is the epitome of a heroine; strong, determined, high-spirited, relentless, never gives up, adventurous, creative, intelligent and a girl with a big heart and big dreams. Kami was the type of girl to take charge. She does what she wants, when she wants and she doesn't need a boy to tell her what to do. Like Kami says throughout the book, she can handle herself and this is so true. She's no damsel in distress and she certainly doesn't need a guy to make her world go round. Kami was half part responsible and half part risk-taker-let's-go-all-out galore. She was so funny and snarky and full of sarcasm that I was beside myself with laughter at nearly every moment. Kami was a little odd, possibly even a little crazy (in the best possible way) and she knows it and it's perfectly fine. She's comfortable with being who she is and you have no idea how much I love that. Kami was different and one of a kind and in my opinion, fabulous.

Kami and Jared: the best romantic `non-relationship' that ever existed. 

These two had this undeniable, obvious, but intense connection that goes way back to when they were young, speaking to each other through their minds. Everything is comfortable up until they meet in person. They struggle with each other's presence, but they still cannot simply pull away from one another. Their not-quite-severely-complicated-relationship was unconventional, unorthodox, and unusual in the most endearing way that I loved so much. It's nothing like I've ever read about before. They can't seem to come to terms with their feelings and it becomes difficult and strange and sometimes really awkward between them since secrets are all out there in the open, yet the mutual understanding and loyalty was always there. Jared was as different as Kami. He was aloof and arrogant and not typically friendly like his counterpart, but still lovable in every sense. He is completely misunderstood, but he cares deeply for Kami and has this fierce protective side for her that I absolutely fell for.

The writing, the world building, the pacing: magnificent.

Sarah Rees Brennan's writing was surreal and whimsical. She really balances the humor and amusement with the dark and spooky feel of the book. She does a great job of making the story easy to read despite the few POV changes, while still creating a story that flowed nicely from start to finish. I was completely impressed with her ability to create a world and develop it well in just a few pages alone. Sorry-in-the-Vale (amazing name, right?) is a small town filled with secrets of magic and sinister happenings that surround the Lynburn family. What I loved was how well-thought out everything was from the mysteries of the town and its background, the deaths, the Lynburn family itself, the magic and power, Jared and Kami's connection and so much more. All of it is explored throughly. The pacing of the novel is spectacular, spilt into six parts where it steadily builds until it reaches the climax then eases into the resolution and then gets packed with a devastating ending that leaves you with a heavy heart and a desire to break something. There was not a single dull moment and the entirety of this novel was more than entertaining.

All in all, Unspoken is immensely witty, cleverly written and filled with fun characters, eerie elements, and a mystery that makes this book one heck of a page-turner!

Review originally posted on The Book Addict's Guide

I’ve been meaning to read Unspoken for quite some time. I actually purchased it based on some great reviews a while back but somehow got pushed to the side time after time until we finally decided to pick it up as a group read for On the Same Page!

UNSPOKEN just felt like a me book. I instantly connected with it, I think in part because the characters are just so wonderful. Kami was such a delight. I loved her humor and really every aspect of her character and the detective/reporter side of her personality really allowed her to push the plot along and dig deeper where the more faint of heart would shy away. Kami’s interactions with everyone, really, are just fantastic. She’s a very dynamic character but so her friends and family and it’s so wonderful to see these characters play off of each other and really help each character develop. And Jared… Jared was awesome in a different way. Moody. Broody. Quite the opposite of Kami at times, but they have such a history — well, their whole lives, really — that it’s wonderful to observe and experience their connection.

I think the great thing about UNSPOKEN was that I was never really quite sure what was going to happen. Sure, I had some expectations and I had my guesses but I guess I felt like anything could conceivably happen at any point in time and I loved that there seemed to be endless possibilities when mysteries arose. I had a few twists sneak up on me that I didn’t expect. I like to go into books blind and I think I really allowed myself to enjoy this one to its fullest potential by doing that with UNSPOKEN.

Everything about the book really just came alive while reading! The secondary characters really helped shape the story and add to the atmosphere with each personality and side story really showing without stealing the spotlight. The setting in the book seemed to come alive as well. There was a definite ambiance and I loved how everything came together to feel incredibly cohesive. Several little questions pop up throughout the book to keep that underlying mystery and sense of wonder (and a little bit of creepiness) running throughout the whole book and even when things are resolved… They’re not. I had heard several reactions of surprise surrounding the ending and now I understand why! It definitely made me want to pick up the next book right away!
3.0 su 5 stelle I'm not a huge fan, but you might be. 15 settembre 2014

Let me start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of this book. Despite that, I'm going to try to be as objective as possible.
The best part about this story probably has to be the characters; every one of them is funny and interesting and they easily carried my interest through all the way to the end. In addition, the subtle darker atmosphere was tied together very well with the light hearted humour.
That said, what I think is lacking here is in the pacing and definitely the ending. The mid and late parts of the story feel like they drag on forever plot wise, and although things happen it feels like not much is accomplished in all of that time. As for the ending, I can see what the author was going for in leaving it the way she did, but personally I don't think it worked at all. If anything the ending just left me incredibly frustrated rather than making me want to read the next book. It didn't even feel like an ending! SO much was left unresolved, and it felt like the author just threw in some unneeded (and nonsensical?) emotional turmoil to try to make readers want to read the next book more. In any series with an overarching plot there is going to be some cliffhangers, but there still needs to be some resolution to make the book feel complete, and this lacked that.
Overall, if you're into funny and interesting stories with darker overtones and don't mind a slower paced narrative style, this book is probably worth a read. For many the good will far outweigh the bad but for me it just didn't do it. I may read the second book just to see for myself if some of the problems I had were fixed, and who knows, it might just pull me back in.
