Kurzbeschreibung

---------- From Thriller Award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff ----------

How can you prevent the future? Would you dare?

Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is having terrible dreams of a massacre at her school. Anna’s father is a mentally unstable veteran, her mother vanished when Anna was five, and Anna might just chalk the dreams up to a reflection of her crazy waking life — except that Tyler Marsh, the most popular guy at the school and Anna’s secret crush, is having the exact same dream.

Despite the gulf between them in social status, Anna and Tyler connect, first in the dream and then in reality. As the dreams reveal more, with clues from the school social structure, quantum physics, probability, and Anna's own past, Anna becomes convinced that they are being shown the future so they can prevent the shooting…

If they can survive the shooter — and the dream.

Reviews:

"Alexandra Sokoloff has created an intricate tapestry; a dark Young Adult novel with threads of horror and science fiction that make it a true original. Loaded with graphic, vivid images that place the reader in the midst of the mystery and danger, The Space Between takes psychological elements, quantum physics and multiple dimensions with parallel universes and creates a storyline that has no equal. A must-read. "
-- Suspense Magazine

"Filled with vivid images, mystery, and a strong atmosphere of danger... Sokoloff interlaces psychological elements, quantum physics and the idea of multiple dimensions and parallel universes into her storyline; this definitely adds something different and original from other teen horror novels in the market today. Highly recommended."
-- Seattle Post Intelligencer

5.0 von 5 Sternen Heisenberg's Groundhog Day 20. August 2011
Von Rich'it - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book for my review. Before reading the Space Between, my exposure with Sokoloff's works had been limited to her blog and her book, Screenwriting Tricks For Authors and Screenwriters. Since reading The Space Between, I started reading The Unseen. The Space Between is targeted for the YA audience, several decades removed from where I am in my sojourn. That notwithstanding, I enjoyed the novel. Sokoloff is gifted in talking a complex subject, quantrum mechanics, and making parts of it reader accessible and applicable to the thrust of the novel. The subject matter has been described as dark with an ambiance of verboten added to the mix. The protagonist, Anna Sullivan, is a sixteen-year old girl infatuated with Tyler Marsh, another student at her school. Both characters share similar dreams. These dreams are primarily warnings of an impending massacre at their high school with Tyler being killed by his best male friend, Darren. The shared dreams are often repeated with additional aspects added each time as Anne seeks to ward off the doom. As the novel progresses we lean Anna's mother, believed to have abandoned the family, turns out to be a kind of savior for a young man named Jason Penman. Jason, in one world would have been kidnapped, but was saved due the actions of Anna's mother. When Anna seeks out Jason, she learns from him the intricacies of Heisenberg's quantrum mechanics and parallel worlds. It is here Anna realizes her dreams have been a kind of Heisenberg's Groundhog Day (This is my description. Not Anna's nor Sokoloff's). In the film, Bill Murray has these reoccurring Groundhog Days where he eventually learns to use the day to his advantage instead of fighting its reoccurence. Anna learns the same and applies the Observer Effect of quantrum mechanics to overcome the adversity. In the end we are left hanging as to what happens to Anna, but are lead to believe she is reunited with Tyler and her mother in a, hopefully, better world. Having started on Sokoloff's The Unseen, I can compare her writing style. The Unseen was written for a mature audience while the Space Between for young adults. This speaks to Sokoloff's flexibility to relate to different age groups, a skill for which she is to be commended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wow - What great writing! 17. August 2011
Von Georgeanna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Dark. That's the first word that pops into my head about this book. The open ending didn't make me feel a heck of a lot better, either. I thought it was extremely well written and the author was able to make me see all the images vividly - like a movie in my head. I could feel Anna's angst and longing. I cheered her strength and determination. (Not sure what it says about me that the teens having unprotected sex bothered me more than the bullying and violence.) I raced through this book, not because I didn't like it, but because I couldn't wait to see how it ended. I received this for free in exchange for a review. Needless to say, I'll be looking for a sequel--and will gladly pay full price for it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What is better than AWESOME? This book... 11. August 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sixteen-year-old Anna Sullivan has never really fit in, or tried to. When she was five her mom vanished and since then she's been charged with taking care of her war-traumatized, alcoholic father.

Once Anna goes to sleep, horrible dreams seem to seek her out. They're terrible. In them she sees classmates and teachers die horrible, bloody deaths at the hands of a crazed killer. Classmate, and Anna's out-of-her-league crush, Tyler appears in these dreams too... and he always dies.

When Tyler seeks Anna out and confides that he knows what she's dreaming and he's a part of it somehow, Anna becomes convinced they're being shown the future so they can stop it... but that's not exactly the case. The truth is much deeper and mind-blowing than she could ever have imagined. Alternate universes are what they're dealing with.

This book is a work of awesome. I devoured it in less than 5 hours. Alexandra Sokoloff wove an intricate story line with threads of horror and science fiction. There were even points I laughed because her characters are so real and easy to relate to. Also, the detail in which the story is described is concise, yet absolutely amazing without all the sparkly, superfluous words of description. You are right there with Anna choking on the smoke, feeling the fear that drives her, experiencing the Santa Ana winds at your back.

I cannot stress how much i enjoyed experiencing this book. Buy it, the alternate universe you probably already has... ;p

5.0 von 5 Sternen Horror Mixes with Quantum Physics 24. Juli 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is an outsider at her high school. Quiet and shy, as well as cursed with a tortuous family past, she can't hope to attract the attention of popular Tyler Marsh, for whom she has a crush. How could a girl like her, a girl with a low social status, an alcoholic father and a mother who abandoned her, dare hope anything at all in life?

Then the nightmares begin... nightmares of a horrible massacre at school...

What do these dreams mean? Is Anna somehow having a glimpse of the future?

Things get more confusing when she realizes Tyler is having the same dreams. In fact, he seems to be sharing the same dreams with her, at the same time. Thus begins Anna and Tyler's dark relationship as together they try to decipher the meaning of the nightmares and in doing so discover their connection to quantum physics and multiple parallel dimensions.

I'm a huge fan of Sokoloff and have read all of her books. I was thrilled to read this her first young adult novel, which, in my opinion, is her darkest work to date. Sokoloff has a gift of pulling readers immediately into her stories. Her writing style, though simple and succinct, is exquisite. She knows how to combine long sentences with sudden short ones, thus creating a sensuous cadence and rhythm. The novel is also filled with vivid images, mystery and a strong atmosphere of danger. I also like the way she interlaces psychological elements into the plot, thus adding depth to the story.

One of the aspects of this novel I enjoyed the most was how Sokoloff incorporated quantum physics and the idea of multiple dimensions and parallel universes into her storyline. This definitely adds something different and original from other teen horror novels in the market today. It also stimulates readers' minds. The story crosses genres; it's a thriller with a bit of horror and a dash of the supernatural.

I highly recommend The Space Between to fans of dark YA thrillers as well as to those readers who like a sprinkle of science in their books.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too many unanswered questions 28. Juni 2012
Von The Flashlight Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The idea behind this story is very original. It had creepy elements and a few surprises along the way, but I have mixed feelings about The Space Between. It was a quick read and kept me turning the pages, but there were many things I found lacking.
First of all, the plot moved way too quickly. It felt under-developed for a novel. There were so many questions that were left unanswered. For instance, what happens to Darren? Why were other kids in Anna's dream? There was no closure. The ending was too open and that bugged me.
Also, the characters felt flat. I never had much insight into any of them. There was a lot of potential with Anna, Tyler, and Anna's father, but we never got any hints about what makes them tick. That was really disappointing. If there was more character development, I think the story would be much better. I would love to know what happened to Anna's mom, what Tyler's home life was like. There are many hints about his father, but nothing is clear. I think knowing those key elements would make Tyler's character (and the plot) stronger.
If you want a spooky read that doesn't take a lot of time, then you should read The Space Between. Be prepared though. It reads more like a longer short story than a novel... and there will be many questions when you finish.
