Kurzbeschreibung

11. Oktober 2012 Breathe Trilogy
Years after the Switch, life inside the Pod has moved on. A poor Auxiliary class cannot afford the oxygen tax which supplies extra air for running, dancing and sports. The rich Premiums, by contrast, are healthy and strong. Anyone who opposes the regime is labelled a terrorist and ejected from the Pod to die. Sixteen-year-old Alina is part of the secret resistance, but when a mission goes wrong she is forced to escape from the Pod. With only two days of oxygen in her tank, she too faces the terrifying prospect of death by suffocation. Her only hope is to find the mythical Grove, a small enclave of trees protected by a hardcore band of rebels. Does it even exist, and if so, what or who are they protecting the trees from? A dystopian thriller about courage and freedom, with a love story at its heart.

Buchrückseite

Inhale. Exhale.
Breathe.
Breathe.
Breathe . . .
The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen–rich air.

Alina
has been stealing for a long time. She's a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she's never been caught before. If she's careful, it'll be easy. If she's careful.

Quinn
should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it's also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn't every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

Bea
wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they'd planned a trip together, the two of them, and she'd hoped he'd discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days' worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

4.0 von 5 Sternen And I can't breathe without you... 26. März 2013
Von Alexandra Gottstein TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Humanity hasn't learned from its mistakes – when does it ever?

Short-sighted greed and gross overpopulation have led to the almost complete annihilation of the trees, the green lungs of the planet. When the oceans are poisoned as well, oxygen quickly runs out and the vast majority of humans die an awful death.

On the brink of utter destruction, a company named "Breathe" steps in and saves mankind: they build huge domes filled with artificial oxygen where the remaining survivors can live, governed by strict rules to keep oxygen use to a minimum.

Many years later, a caste system has developed.

There are the Premiums, the fortunates who hold the most prestigious jobs (as well as the political power) and can afford all the artificial oxygen they want or need - even for luxuries like doing sports, dancing or taking trips outside of the dome.

Then there are the Auxiliaries or Subs, who work hard and are kept on a short leash, living frugal lives. Considered second-rate citizens, they spend most of their time imprisoned in the dome. They are kept physically weak (they don't have enough air to exercise), financially poor (they have little chance of getting a well-paying job) and politically powerless (they cannot rebel against the people who literally control the air they breathe).

The Rats are the rebels who exist against all odds. They steal heavily guarded plants from the government in an attempt to re-build the forests, train themselves to survive on air less saturated with oxygen and generally refuse to live their lives controlled by the almighty Breathe.

When a Premium (Quinn), a Sub (Bea) and a Rat (Alina) are haphazardly thrown together outside of the dome, what will happen?

Von ANM

Ich lese sehr gern Jugendromane und habe mir dieses Buch auf Grund des interessanten Themas gekauft. Ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. Man kann nicht erwarten, wie es weiter geht. Es ist gut und sorgfältig geschrieben, Man kann sich sehr gut vorstellen, dass es eine derartige Realität geben könnte....

Format:Kindle Edition
Die Geschichte um ein normales Armes Mädchen, dass sich in einen reichen Jungen verliebt und zum Schluss das Gesicht einer Rebellion ist, ist nichts neues! Dennoch ist Breathe ATEMBERAUBEND!!! Es ist ein sensationell tolles Jugendbuch und verschlägt dir nicht nur den Atem, sondern rührt dich auch zu Tränen und zaubert dir Gänsehaut auf deinen Körper. Die Idee, dass die Erde keinen Sauerstoff mehr hat, und man unter einer Glaskuppel leben muss ist genial und auch gut erklärt und keinesfalls aus der Luft gegriffen.

Ich empfehle dieses Buch vor allem den Fans von DIE TRIBUTE VON PANEM oder CITY OF BONES! Aber auch allen anderen Leseratten da draußen, von Jung bis Alt :))

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Grundidee von "Breathe", dass bedingt durch Umweltschäden und das Absterben der Bäume, die Menschheit unter großen Glaskuppeln leben muss, weil die Luft außerhalb der Kuppeln nicht mehr genug Sauerstoff enthält, fand ich sehr interessant und da ich gute Dystopien immer wieder gerne lese, griff ich hier zu.
Das Buch enttäuschte mich nicht, im Gegenteil, ich fand es absolut spannend und fesselnd geschrieben. Das dem Buch zu grunde liegende gesellschaftliche System, erscheint mir gut durchdacht zu sein, so dass es Spaß brachte, sich darauf einzulassen.
Das Leben wird von Atemluft bestimmt, wer privilegiert ist, hat ausreichend Luft, um sogar Sport zu treiben oder dergleichen mehr zu tun, wer zur Unterschicht gehört, darf sich nur langsam bewegen und muss sich atemschonend verhalten.
Ein gesellschaftlicher Aufstieg ist kaum möglich, das ganze Leben ist durchreglementiert und die Kontrolle ist allgegenwärtig. Wer sich gegen das System stellt, der verschwindet.
Das Schicksal führt Quinn, einen der sogenannten Premiums, ein Mitglied der Oberschicht, bea, die der Unterschicht angehört und Alina, die sich den Rebellen angeschlossen hat, zusammen. Für Quinn und Bea eröffnen sich neue Welten und ein neues Verständnis ihrer Situation.
Mir hat das Buch sehr gut gefallen und ich freue mich sehr auf den nächsten Band!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fans of DIVERGENT and UNDER THE NEVER SKY should definitely get their hands on BREATHE 2. Oktober 2012
Von AJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Few things are more frightening than a world without breathable air, which is why it makes for a near perfect setting in the new dystopian series from Sarah Crossan. In BREATHE, the world's air supply was depleted when the trees and oceans were destroyed. Those who survived have built new societies in massive domes where air is currency and only the wealthy Premiums can afford enough to exorcise and have children. The tension between these classes is just delicious.

There are three protagonists in BREATHE who each represent the three people groups in this world: Quinn the privleged Premium, Bea the poor Auxiliary, and Alina the member of the rebel group. These three end up together outside the dome on the run from just about everyone: Premium soldiers, crazy isolationists, Government officials. The characters all have distinct-and likeable-voices. I never felt impatient while reading one over another (something I usually do with multiple POV books).

As cool and creepy as this dystopian world was, the romance was rather anemic. The description (and cover) hinted at love triangle, but there really wasn't one-at least not for very long. When the couple does get together, it seemed to happen in a vacuum without any real reason or explanation. They literally had a run-to-each-other-and-start-kissing moment. Because the story is told in rotating point of view, I expected that at least one of them would explain why they decided they were in love, but it never happened. I even checked my ARC to make sure I wasn't missing a few chapters (as far as I could tell everything was there).

The resolution of the romance didn't kill the book for me by any means since it isn't a huge part of BREATHE, but the ending came off as a little rushed, with a few logical inconsistencies which did knock it down a rating. Still, the writing is solid, the characters equally compelling, and the dystopian world is perfectly unsettling. Fans of DIVERGENT and UNDER THE NEVER SKY should definitely get their hands on BREATHE and be ready to pick up the next book in the Breathe series, RESIST, on October 10, 2013.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If there were no more trees, life would suck 20. März 2013
Von Lizzy's Dark Fiction - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Despite the obvious theme of the book SAVE THE TREES, Breathe never feels like it's preaching about green living and the damage that people do on the environment every day. Instead, it tells the story about a world where people didn't take care of its trees and thus the atmosphere no longer has enough oxygen to sustain human life. These people are forced to carry around oxygen masks and live inside pods to survive. It's very clear early on into the book that the people in charge don't have the best intentions at heart. I'm completely ignorant in how accurate this sort of situation was portrayed, but it made sense to me.

The book switches between three first-person narratives: Bea, Quinn, and Alina. Quinn and Bea's narratives are so similar that sometimes it took me a page or two to figure out who was talking. I admittedly have a bad habit of ignoring chapter titles (which did explain who was the chapter's POV) while reading. Bea is a tree-hugger who wants to excel at her schooling so that she can get accepted into the Premiums and is no longer a second class citizen. Quinn is her best friend. Despite being part of the elite class, he feels smothered by his father's overbearing nature and high demands. Alina, meanwhile, is part of the Resistance who means to expose the dark side of those in power. By chance, the three of them meet up and despite the love triangle introduction, it is clear who will end up with who long before the book ends.

I really enjoyed the storyline and how gritty the book became at times. It was intriguing to see the lengths people will go to fight for what they believe in. I also liked how there are purely evil or good characters. Each one is unique and makes both good and bad decisions. I think my favorite character is Alina and I especially liked how her personality and outlook evolved over the course of the book. At the very beginning, she sees the world in black and white, but by the end she knows that even people with the best intention do some very bad things.

The main reason that this book wasn't a 5 star book was because there isn't any resolution at the end. Breathe felt like part one of a book. It has no standalone qualities. I can't help but be annoyed that I won't find out what happens to any of the characters for at least another year. If I knew that it was a series before reading, this might not have bothered me as much. The only thing I did like at the end was the twist involving one of the minor characters.

If you're on the hunt for a decent YA sci-fi or dystopian novel, then you should check out Breathe.

(I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive teen dystopian read 2. Oktober 2012
Von misplaced cajun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
People have destroyed the forests and poisoned the seas. As a result, Earth's oxygen levels have been vastly depleted. Breathe now controls the quality and amount of air available to citizens lucky enough to have earned a spot in the pod. For Quinn and Bea, this is their life. They've never known any different. Quinn's father is a high up with Breathe and their family are Premiums. Bea, on the other hand, is an auxiliary. Since excess oxygen is an expense, only Premiums can afford excess. Auxiliaries are ticketed for running and fined for using more than their allotted oxygen. The Resistance means to change all of this. But their acts are akin to terrorism in the eyes of Breathe and the Ministry. When Bea and Quinn set off for a two day camping trip outside the pod, they run into Alina, a fellow teen and a member of the Resistance. If Quinn and Bea help Alina at all, they could be punished harshly for aiding the Resistance. But everything in their lives is about to change. The Resistance and Breathe are gearing up for a confrontation and the two friends find themselves stuck in the middle.

I really liked this one. The setting is a bit original and the characters -- in particular the female characters -- are especially great. Bea and Alina are both very strong female leads. They're believable in their setting but they're also believable teens.

I'm a fan of anyone who can put an interesting twist on a dystopian world and setting as well. Here, the environmental message is strong but not overwhelmingly so. The bad guys grow increasingly bad as you learn more and the cliffhanger ending definitely left room for some great follow up possibilities.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best Dystopian 8. Januar 2013
Von Fall Into Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Breathe isn't the best or worst dystopian I've ever read. The concept is interesting, and the plot is intriguing, but the characters are god awful. I also really did not like the ending. I realize this is going to be a series, but I felt very defeated after that ending. I was like, "wow, I just wasted how long reading this book for THAT ending?" Anyway, that being said, hardcore dystopian fans are sure to love this. As previously stated, the plot is enjoyable and the world-building is fantastic.

I'm not going to spend much time on the characters because it will just be a rant. None of the characters were very complex or interesting. None of them were well-developed. They had spontaneous growth spurts, and since it was first person POV with the three narrators listed above, feelings were told more than they were shown. Also, none of the characters were actually likable. Alina was rude and harsh, Quinn was ridiculously useless and flaky, and Bea whined constantly. Not my favorite cast.

The plot kept me reading, though, and I did enjoy it until the end. Even though I didn't like the characters, I still felt a sense of urgency with the plot. I also wanted to know what was going on with Abel, but I don't feel that was really tied up for me. No one's fate was sealed, and no questions were really answered. That bothered me. It was just a depressing ending. Yuck.

The world-building is fantastic, and I could clearly picture this world. I think that's what gave me the aforementioned sense of urgency. This world just seemed so real, it was hard not to care about the fate of it, even though I didn't care what happened to the characters. I'd say that the world-building and original idea were the two saving graces of this novel.

As I said, I would recommend this book for hardcore dystopian fans. A lot of people love it, and just because the characters bugged me doesn't mean they'll bug you. If you're unsure about it, check it out from the library. You may just find a book that you really love.

2.0 von 5 Sternen weak worldbuilding and characters 7. Januar 2013
Von B. Capossere - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Breathe, by Sarah Crossan, is an unremarkable new entry in the teen dystopia field. Its premise is relatively simple: in the far future, the world's oxygen level has dropped so far that people are relegated to living in oxygenated "pods," where "Premiums" get all the oxygen they want and the commoners have to get by with far less. One result of this disparity is that the average person has to carefully moderate their physical activity (there are "speeding" laws with regard to walking) while the Premiums can go for a nice little job with their person oxygen tanks. The company that controls the oxygenating process, Breathe, controls the pod. It will come as no surprise that they're just a little corrupt and power-hungry.

We're introduced to this world via three teen point-of-views. Alina is a commoner who is also a member of the resistance, a group trying to take down Breathe as well as break the monopoly of the pod's on human existence, both by long-term re-oxygenation of the atmosphere and by short-term retraining of people to enable them to survive in the outside. She's embittered and wide awake to the realities of this world, though not utterly aware of how far the resistance will go. Quinn is the son of a higher-up Premium and is being groomed to take his own place among the elites. Bea is his commoner best friend. Both have so far blithely accepted all they've been taught of their society's workings, though that will soon change once their paths intersect with Alina's. As one might expect, the seemingly inevitable triangle forms: Bea wants to be with Quinn while Quinn, oblivious to Bea's desire, wants to be with Alina. Alina, meanwhile, just wants to be with the Resistance.

As is usual with books I don't much care for, this will be a relatively quick review, as I don't like to belabor a book's flaws or bash an author who has at least accomplished completing a novel, even if it wasn't a very good one. To begin with, Breathe's plot is not particularly compelling or surprising. The three characters are introduced one after the other and then quickly end up outside the pod together. In short order they are facing off with Breathe's soldiers and running into the Resistance, though there was never any real sense of danger or urgency with regard to what might happen to them. Worse, many of the violent encounters felt a bit cartoonish and barely sketched in.

The Worldbuilding is also pretty sketchy. I had a problem with the general premise as it was presented, and while there were occasional flashes of sharp details, mostly in the early sections, overall the setting and society never came alive as real constructs. The same is true of the characters, who do change but in pretty much wholly predictable fashion. None of the side characters, save one (an old woman whose been outside for some time), feel fully fleshed out, playing more as types or plot necessities than real people (one might get my pick for worst naming of the year, a villain named "Cain Knavery"). The prose is mostly pedestrian throughout, rarely rising above merely functional and at times its simplistic, repetitive nature was distractingly noticeable.

Breathe ends with some resolution but with a clear path forward. I, however, will not be picking up book two, as for me, Breathe failed across the board: character, story, setting, style.
