    3.75 stars Just when I thought I d never find another good dystopian read again, here comes an unexpected book, courtesy of my friend, Jobelle and I really enjoyed it I m only frowning at the conclusion because I don t have the second book and I really want to continue with the story of Tegan Oglietti, also called Teeg and yep, her name alone has already bought me completely It also helps a lot that she s a total kick ass and adorably sarcastic.Who wouldn t sympathize with a sixteen year 3.75 stars Just when I thought I d never find another good dystopian read again, here comes an unexpected book, courtesy of my friend, Jobelle and I really enjoyed it I m only frowning at the conclusion because I don t have the second book and I really want to continue with the story of Tegan Oglietti, also called Teeg and yep, her name alone has already bought me completely It also helps a lot that she s a total kick ass and adorably sarcastic.Who wouldn t sympathize with a sixteen year old girl looking forward to a whole life ahead of her especially now that the boy she s been secretly in love with was finally her boyfriend Then suddenly, she loses her life, everything she knew and everyone she loved She does wake up though except she woke up too late, a hundred years later I was hooked by the premise and impressed by the world building, the writing and the scienc y details It was a very realistic glimpse to the future and it was eveninteresting that the story is set in Australia in the year 2127 I was also very amused by the technology An earring actually rings because those little gems that used to adorn the ears are now the cell phones Bahaha It s also funny that Lilo Stitch is considered a vintage Disney movie I thought the plot was very original I couldn t imagine which direction the introduction will take but I couldn t complain It was fast paced, adventurous and smartly written Downsides are probably the too obvious religious and political references but overall, it was an enjoyable read P.S Happy Early Birthday, Jobelle June 19 is her birthday May you have a dozen cake, a hundred smiles and a thousand books to read Enjoy your special day 3

    DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE MEDIOCRE AVERAGE RATING THIS BOOK HAS BECAUSE IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD Honestly I did not have high hopes for this book because of it s deja vu Across the Universe storyline but this was actually really good So, in the year of 2027, Teegan was living the best day of her life However, that ends abruptly when she gets shot and finds herself 100 years into the future when she wakes up from being cryonically frozen The world building of When we wake was explored quite well DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE MEDIOCRE AVERAGE RATING THIS BOOK HAS BECAUSE IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD Honestly I did not have high hopes for this book because of it s deja vu Across the Universe storyline but this was actually really good So, in the year of 2027, Teegan was living the best day of her life However, that ends abruptly when she gets shot and finds herself 100 years into the future when she wakes up from being cryonically frozen The world building of When we wake was explored quite well The story is set in Melbourne, and in 2127, the environment is severely damaged, with oceans rising and extreme weather patterns Meat has become frowned upon and almost everyone is a vegetarian In the novel, Australia has become the new superpower of the world, a land of sources and an open minded continent in terms of gender and sexual orientation However, it has a no migrant policy and anyone who tries to come into its borders is sent to detention camps People from other countries who have received government permission to stay in Australia are called Thirdies and are treated with an less than welcoming attitude.It was a pretty realistic future where all the electricity are generated by solar hydro wind while third world countries still use fossil fuel because they haveoil sources and it s much easier cheaper for them to do so.There are some twists to the story, and while they re not that obvious, I wasn t all that surprised when the revelations were revealed.Now, onto the characters Teegan was a great protagonist When she found out that she was 100 years into the future, she didn t believe it and still felt like she was living in the past, with her boyfriend, family and friends memories still fresh in her mind She wasn t really your typical brooding heroine who complains about her situation She dealt with the condition she was in even though she still felt like it was 2027 and tried to live a normal life even though the government is pampering her as this miracle that woke up 100 years later.The secondary characters were diverse and very likeable However, because they re not your average YA secondary characters, Teegan stands out in contrast due to her typical YA female looks Which was a little bit disappointing It didn t bother me much but still.And of course we have romance The romance between Teegan and Abdi took the back seat of the story and burned slow and sweet It didn t feel rushed considering Teegan still had feelings for her boyfriend from the past when she woke up and as far as I know, I don t think there ll be a love triangle.So why did I give this 4 and not 5 stars Well, the similarity of concepts between this and Across the Universe annoyed me a bit, even though it was done quite well People who have read Across the Universe will notice that when they read this view spoiler it ll feel like it s the prequel to ATU It also had the nerve to name on of its chapters Across the Universe And I don t care if that was a Beatles reference hide spoiler Also, Teegan was cryonically frozen when she was dead The process science as to how the freezing process can bring her back to life was never explained properly In the story, Teegan said she didn t understood much of the science terminology and steps to comprehend how she was frozen felt like a cop out to me Aside from that, I enjoyed the book alot The ending tied its knots together perfectly and even though there s no cliffhanger thank god I NEED THE NEXT BOOK RIGHT NOW Me You Me

    What happens after death Well for Tegan, it s another life 100 years from now A fascinating premise indeed Who s not intrigued by the future Curious about the state of our planet, the technology, even the fashion I was really excited to get into this book and for the most part it I really enjoyed it My problems mostly lay with the way the book came off as a big environmental social speech Tegan is in love and it s all pretty and roses, then she abruptly wakes up 100 years from now That What happens after death Well for Tegan, it s another life 100 years from now A fascinating premise indeed Who s not intrigued by the future Curious about the state of our planet, the technology, even the fashion I was really excited to get into this book and for the most part it I really enjoyed it My problems mostly lay with the way the book came off as a big environmental social speech Tegan is in love and it s all pretty and roses, then she abruptly wakes up 100 years from now That would be a shocker on pretty much anybody I liked how this was done, she was on the defensive, not believing anybody and fighting to get her way She was a great protagonist for this story and I found her very likeable Same with the secondary characters she comes to meet and call friends They were all a little quirky with their own traits and personalities I liked that they weren t just fluffy plot fillers, they were fun characters and also very loyal to Tegan Even though she leaves her love behind in the past, she does meet a new guy in the future of course and the romance is, although I wouldn t call it chemistry filled, very sweet and well paced.The plot itself is intriguing, too, we have the usual secrets and conspiracies that come about during the story We know that what we re told are most likely lies It s also told through Tegan s voice, her telling us a story that s already happened to her, so she adds short commentaries at spots to make us understand that we should be wary of everything she s being told at this point I thought this was very well done, it added a great touch of suspense into the novel The world building itself, though, I will say I expectedWe re suddenly 100 years in the future and not a whole lot is said about society itself Cars, building, every day life, we don t get any of those details and it came off as very anticlimactic for what you d expect in a setting such as this We do get into some details in regards to computers and the environment the planet as a whole but it still leaves too many unexplained areas that I d think anyone talking about the future would immediately want to know The environment, however, nope, that one was not forgotten Our people s damaging ways and prejudices against several minorities were brought up so much in this book that it felt like a big speech on what our corrupt ways will bring if we don t change The planet dying, extremists who are trying to take things into their own hands, gay marriage being universally accepted, topics like this kept being brought up and not in a way to strengthen world building either though it did work for that in some ways but forcefully so that it felt like the book was yelling at me Yelling at our generation for being the eventual end all of our world Shame on us The first thing I did upon finishing this book was ask a friend Did you feel this book was very preachy Like a big speech on how our world is corrupt A fantastic concept, compelling writing, and great characters, When We Wake does have a lot to offer I wouldn t say it s an especially memorable read, I can already tell I will forget most of this book in a few months, but even with my issues it s still fun and suspenseful while it lasts An advance copy was provided by the publisher for review.Forof my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads

    Rating 1.5First things first, let s talk about what this book did well For example, the idea behind the book was really cool The cover design was also really great Also, the first chapter or so was a really great start to an interesting story.Other than that though Just put the book down Stop yes stop right there If you re expecting it to be amazing like I was , then you need to either lower your expectations, or prepare for a rough ride.First of all, let s talk about the main character Rating 1.5First things first, let s talk about what this book did well For example, the idea behind the book was really cool The cover design was also really great Also, the first chapter or so was a really great start to an interesting story.Other than that though Just put the book down Stop yes stop right there If you re expecting it to be amazing like I was , then you need to either lower your expectations, or prepare for a rough ride.First of all, let s talk about the main character First of all, SHE IS ANNOYING I m not even kidding All the main character talks or should I say whines about other than herself is the Beatles Approximately every other line of this book is about the Beatles Yes, I get that the main character is obsessed with the Beatles but I got it after the first 12 references or so From there, it just got annoying, distracting, and took away from the lack luster story.Next, the love interest Abdi was a boring, two dimensional character who played the classic role of loved and hated by the public, but adored by me Yes, I understand that the story was from the main characters point of view, so of course she found him perfect , but the whole relationship was a bit rushed, and seemed thrown together haphazardly just to add some quick and easy middle school style romance appeal.Let s move on to the story It was well, boring Like I said, good idea, but poor execution The beginning, with the waking up and panicking part, great Part of the problem, though, is that by the end, when you find out the reason behind this narrated story, it makes the rest of the book seem even MORE pointless than it had before There were so many details included thata wouldn t have been in there if the character WAS telling it to an audience in what should ve been a rushed atmosphereb NO ONE CARED ABOUTc Had almost no reference to the storyA prime example of this would be her included love for Abdi and her constantly being hung up on her 100 year ago friend Dalmar In the situation this story was presented in, this stuff shouldn t have been said, and ALSO shouldn t have mattered.As you can probably tell, this story was not really great for me That said, it d probably good for younger children, specifically anyone in between grades 5 and 7 or let s say ages 11 to 14

    When We Wake by Karen Healey is set in Melbourne, firstly in the year 2027 and later in the year 2127 In the beginning Tegan Oglietti is sixteen and on her way to a climate change protest, along with her best friend, Alex, and her new boyfriend, Dalmar But her day doesn t go to plan and she wakes up 100 years later to find out she is the first person to successfully be awakened from a cryogenic state She s told she s part of a special project to bring soldiers back to life, but she soon finds When We Wake by Karen Healey is set in Melbourne, firstly in the year 2027 and later in the year 2127 In the beginning Tegan Oglietti is sixteen and on her way to a climate change protest, along with her best friend, Alex, and her new boyfriend, Dalmar But her day doesn t go to plan and she wakes up 100 years later to find out she is the first person to successfully be awakened from a cryogenic state She s told she s part of a special project to bring soldiers back to life, but she soon finds out that s not the truth.When We Wake was such a thought provoking book In Tegan s original life, the world is already suffering from extreme weather conditions It s only spring in Melbourne yet most people avoid going outdoors during the middle of the day because it s just too hot When she wakes up in 2127, the world is even worse houses are now built with a level sunken into the ground, to try and keep them cooler There are noflushing toilets, almost everyone is vegetarian because it s impossible to raise, feed, and water livestock and it s extremely hot all the time There are wars between countries who were formally allies, Australia has a no migrant policy, and people from third world countries are looked down on and referred to as thirdies Basically, it sounds awful but completely believable Although, there were some good aspects for one, everyone being vego it s not surprising I think that, right , and that in mainstream society peoples sexuality isaccepted than it is now Also, most people have small, pliable, portable computers that can do almost anything and everything for you.I liked Tegan from the beginning, she s smart, energetic she enjoys free running , and is a big fan of The Beatles particularly Ringo She also handles the news really well, I think most people would have flipped out or become depressed, but Tegan makes a good go of her second chance at life, despite having to mourn the loss of her mother, brother, Alex and Dalmar who all went on to live their lives and pass away years before she was awakened I really liked Dr Marie, the women in charge of the project, and her new friends Bethari, Joph and Abdi I appreciated that the slow romantic build up was not the focus of Tegan s story, she had bigger issues to deal with.The story had me hooked from the beginning as it starts with Tegan explaining a little about her family and letting the reader know she will be telling us her story It s clear that things in her new life have gotten messy and I was keen to know what had happened and what the secret behind the cryo project was.I also have to mention all the Beatles references and lyrics scattered throughout the book as well as the fact that each chapter starts with the title of a Beatles song I loved this addition to the book.When We Wake is a unique look at a futuristic world, featuring a solid cast of characters, and an intriguing and action packed plot It s ahead of the pack when it comes to dystopian YA

    The Beatles sang all you need is love It would be nice if that were true But, like everyone, they wanted a lotthan love alone they wanted wealth and glory and freedom and peace They wanted to travel they wanted to investigate their spirtuality they wanted their children to be happy and safe Love is a good start, but we needthan that to get through Now this is one futuristic novel that I may never have been exposed to if it hadn t been for a grade nine student that told me it The Beatles sang all you need is love It would be nice if that were true But, like everyone, they wanted a lotthan love alone they wanted wealth and glory and freedom and peace They wanted to travel they wanted to investigate their spirtuality they wanted their children to be happy and safe Love is a good start, but we needthan that to get through Now this is one futuristic novel that I may never have been exposed to if it hadn t been for a grade nine student that told me it was a must read When We Wake is a futuristic novel set in Australia, that jumps readers from 2027 to 2128 The Goodreads synopsis is quite stellar and I really don t want to rehash it here I felt that this book was infused with deeper religious, political, and scientific dilemmas that may or may not deter a struggling reader Left me with a good cliffhanger, but I guess my new school doesn t have the sequel.yet Maybe my favorite thing of all was that the book features a teen protagonist that isn t being fought over by two other male characters Hallelujah

    The only reason I read this book was because of Renae s review I couldn t have been any less interested in the book, to be honest It sounded like another boring dystopian with a hint of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE.I m so happy to say that WHEN WE WAKE was different from everything I d ever read in the genre Dystopian and science fiction are my favorite genres, and have been ever since I was a kid I don t often get lucky with them however and I tend to find most of my favorite books in the fantasy an The only reason I read this book was because of Renae s review I couldn t have been any less

the genre Dystopian and science fiction are my favorite genres, and have been ever since I was a kid I don t often get lucky with them however and I tend to find most of my favorite books in the fantasy and contemporary genres.I got lucky.WHEN WE WAKE is set in 2127 where the world is very different from how it is now But in a good way for the most part The world is greener, for one Mankind learned to live by the land and follow the three R s of recycling Homosexual love isn t viewed any different than heterosexual love which is awesome Yet the world is certainly not perfect as racial tensions are higher than ever.I guess Lennon s Imagine world hasn t happened yet view spoiler Get it Get it hide spoiler Tegan wakes up to this world like she literally woke up She was cryogenically frozen for 100 years after being accidentally shot and killed This is the point where you have to just go with the flow It doesn t make any sense that Tegan could sign up for being frozen without actually knowing what she was signing up for.Tegan faces the obvious cultural shock of walking up a hundred years into the future, not to mention the grief that comes with the realization that all of Tegan s friends and family have been dead for a very long time She also faces the trouble that comes with being the first successful awakened person, target of a cult, and being used by various institutions and people.Thankfully, Tegan isthan apt to care of herself She s one of my all time favorite heroines Tegan is strong and willful She s definitely not afraid to speak her mind when and wherever she chooses It was the truth, I said Truth We didn t put you on camera to speak the truth We needed a pretty face Well, tough, I snapped You got me instead I guess your little clockwork doll broke down page 189 I am so tired of being used The army tried to do it, Tatia tried to do it, and now you re trying to do it I m a person, not a symbol, not property, and not a prop If you want me dead, I can t stop you, but I won t make it easier for you either Dirty your own fucking hands page 273The quotes remind me a bit too much of MOCKINGJAY, the finale in the Hunger Games series Katniss was being used by both the rebels and the formal government for much of the book What disappointed me was how well Katniss took it All I wanted was for her to say what Tegan did She didn t.I really love Tegan even though it s not like she was ever the most original character I like that about her in this case People can be brave without being a superhero it s actually possible Tegan was a brave, wonderful girl who wasn t a superhero, nor did she try to be I think she was perfect without being perfect.While the book deals with a lot of really serious and deep issues like racial discrimination, Healey doesn t fill her entire book with that She instead fills her time with needed character development and the most important thing to any book character interaction Each and every one of Healy s characters are well rounded I feel like Bethari, Joph, and the others could be in my life and that they could be my friends.What I truly love about the characters is how different they are They all come from different religious backgrounds, ethnicities, and sexual orientations This is very much lacking in most YA and Adult literature The characters are usually white, very rarely anything other than a Christian or an Atheist, and straight There is nothing wrong with white Christian straight people but I do really love when authors add characters that break the average mold Tegan and the other characters were definitely my favorite aspect to the book but the moral and ethical problems that were introduced were another one of my favorites There are a few that I wish wereelaborated on but for the most part, I felt that they were a very nice addition to the book Before I end the review, I want to say that I, like some other reviewers, am very sad to hear that there is a sequel to WHEN WE WAKE in the works I found the ending perfect for the book and wouldn t want it any other way I will probably end up reading the sequel just because I wantTegan but I highly doubt it will be anything like WHEN WE WAKE But then again, you never know Healy is probably talented enough to pull it off.WHEN WE WAKE is an intelligent, beautiful dystopian that really challenges the norm of dystopian novels With this book, I have a bithope that, just maybe, other authors will realize that there isto dystopian fiction then love triangles I recommend this book with all my heart and will be seeking out Healy s other books

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyWHEN WE WAKE is a very political book, and, to a lesser degree, a very religious book Those aren t necessarily bad things But when the politics and religion are preachy, it becomes much harder to enjoy the story hiding underneath.And the story underneath is intriguing, or at least the premise is A girl who is brought back to life a hundred years after she dies must learn to adapt to a hostile and unfamiliar world Everything from technology to langua Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyWHEN WE WAKE is a very political book, and, to a lesser degree, a very religious book Those aren t necessarily bad things But when the politics and religion are preachy, it becomes much harder to enjoy the story hiding underneath.And the story underneath is intriguing, or at least the premise is A girl who is brought back to life a hundred years after she dies must learn to adapt to a hostile and unfamiliar world Everything from technology to language has changed to the point that it s almost unrecognizable Initially, Teegan was likeable enough with her Beatles obsession and free running hobby, but she ended up making a few too many temper driven choices that just struck me as stupid though not as stupid as almost every adult in this book.The problem arises when WHEN WE WAKE attempts to tackle almost every single potentially polarizing issue dividing people today hyper environmentalism, vegetarianism, racism, homosexuality, sex change operations, Islam, Christianity, Roman Catholicism, cults, drugs, immigration, totalitarianism, and so manyThe author s position on all this issues comes across loud and clear The characters who hold opposing viewpoints are complete villains The problem isn t always the issues themselves, which I think most of us would agree the way they are portrayed, it s just so heavy handed and relentless The story, such as it was, felt like it was just a series of events strung together in order for the author to get on her soapbox.I had a hard time finishing this one Instead of raising issues and letting readers think for themselves, only one position is presented as acceptable in WHEN WE WAKE, not because it is morally or intellectuallytenable even when it is but because the opposing view is a caricature straw man version of itself Regardless of your political and religious ideologies, it struck me as deeply disrespectful to lampoon and deride opposing viewpoints as thoroughly and overwhelmingly as this book does There is clearly a sequel planned based on the unresolved ending, WHEN WE RUN, but I won t be reading it.Sexual Content Kissing

    I picked this book up off the shelf because, well, it was shiny And the cover is so very, very pretty Creepy, but the colours do look amazing together At first, I just couldn t get into this book The premise just seemed too sad To put it in perspective, I had recently read five dystopian books in a row, and without knowing it, in doing so I had filled my mind with all sorts of We are all going to die We are going to be taken over by a totalitarian government with horrible laws and of co I picked this book up off the shelf because, well, it was shiny And the cover is so very, very pretty Creepy, but the colours do look amazing together At first, I just couldn t get into this book The premise just seemed too sad To put it in perspective, I had recently read five dystopian books in a row, and without knowing it, in doing so I had filled my mind with all sorts of We are all going to die We are going to be taken over by a totalitarian government with horrible laws and of course, Global warming is going to kill us all scenarios Basically, I had assured myself we were all going to have a horrible future ahead of us So, hopefully you can kind of understand why I didn t particularly feel like reading a story about a teenage girl who accidentally gets shot, is cryogenically frozen and then wakes up in a future that seems great but is actually full of underlying terrible truths minus all of her family and friends and anyone she loves I read the first couple of pages and just felt sad, so I promptly stopped.Well, that turned out to be a big mistake Because a few weeks later as I was searching through the pile of books that is higher than my bed and probably consists ofthan a few overdues I saw the shiny, new cover with the beautiful colours and the creepy girl I started to read again, and I read, and I read I couldn t stop reading I just had to discover the dark secrets of the seemingly perfect world that Tegan had woken into The category this book completes is a book set in another place and time This book is set one hundred, or thereabouts, years in the future, in Australia Being from New Zealand and having Australia just over the ditch, this book felt pretty close to home for me I found it easy to imagine that the situation happening in New Zealand would be similar to what would be happening in Australia.The world in the future, according to Karen Healey, is not a good one People are suffering from some sort of global environmental crisis, sea levels are rising and despite the effort made in Australia to go clean and green, global warming is still occurring All around there are Third World countries suffering the effects because they cannot afford to go green Australia has introduced a rigorously enforced anti immigrant policy Tegan is the first person to be woken up successfully after being frozen and this has unforeseen consequences It was extremely interesting to see how much progress the world had made in one hundred years, and as far as I can see from this book, not much In my opinion, if we want any sort of green, healthy future we d better start now In a quiet, not too over the top way I think Tegan is a wonderful heroine and she was my favourite character With a quietly powerful and strong voice, she seemed innocent but would then say the occasional fantastic quote that reminded you the world was not perfect It was time to give them a lesson in just how surprising Tegan Ogletti could be I love this quote because it sums up the essence of the book Tegan surprised everybody She managed to remain strong when she was totally alone, isolated from anyone she used to love, and that strength is a very admirable quality She went from a confused girl to a motivated one who used her brains to figure out what was really going on, and then she told the world She was focused on changing the world for the better I loved how Tegan had a great appreciation for music, and although I don t share that passion I feel it really personalises a character and a story when one underlying quality in a person comes through, such as an obsession or passion I enjoyed how the romance was a subplot in this book, and most of the story was focused on Tegan and her struggle for the truth The mystery was the main point of the book, and it was great how it was kept that way This brings me to a part of the book I really enjoyed I loved how the book seemed to come full circle, that we were reading Tegan s story that she was telling to audiences on her tubecast This connected the parts of the story together right from the beginning.Reading this book I learnt not to believe everything you see Tegan steps into a future that seems a lot better than the place she left, but a dark secret is lurking It taught me to be aware of what is going on and to persevere to discover the truth I also discovered an interesting and believable perception of the future where technology has advanced and new laws have come into place Yes, the world has begun to face environmental and political crisis but at what and who s cost It is believable, but not so extreme that it seems unreal Attention to detail made this whole story seem like a link to our future, and that link was fascinating I couldn t get into this book at first, but when I did it was well worth reading 4 5 stars
