5.0 von 5 Sternen Bestes Hopkins-Buch bisher! 23. November 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Gelesen habe ich bisher: Crank, Burned, Tricks, Impulse.

Die Geschichte hat mich sofort mitgerissen, die Fülle an Themen ist geradezu atemberaubend, und dass, ohne konstruiert oder unglaubwürdig zu wirken! Es spielen eine Rolle: Selbstverletzung, Alkoholismus, Drogen-/Tablettensucht, Missbrauch, und so manch gut verschleiertes Geheimnis.
Das Ende kam wirklich überraschend, und das passiert mir nicht oft!

Besonders stilistsch fällt dieses Buch positiv auf, Hopkins übertrifft sich selbst. Wirklich ganz toll.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Teens Read Too 28. Februar 2011
Gold Star Award Winner!

Ellen Hopkins does it again! Another page-turning book by this amazing author!

This is a story filled with drugs, promiscuity, and sexual abuse. Not for those that are easily offended or may have issues with the content. That being said, if you can handle the mature content, the book surely will not disappoint.

Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical twins. But beyond the external comparison, internally Kaeleigh and Raeanne are as different as night and day. One twin is the apple of their father's eye. The other twin wonders why her father doesn't love her the same way.

One twin dares to defy their father's rules. Running around with the wrong crowd. Toking up during school hours. Trading sex for favors.

The other twin is the goody-two-shoes. Gets great grades. Is the lead in the high school musical. Has a great guy that loves her.

How could the two girls be so different? It all stems back to "the accident." No one will talk about what happened the night their father drank too much and caused the fatal accident. But ever since that night, things have been far from perfect.

Their mother has basically abandoned the family with ambitions of running for Congress. But could it be she's running from them? Their father forbids any of them to speak to his parents. A secret from his past never to be revealed, at least by him. And his love for one of the girls. A love that no father should share with his own child.

Keeping everything to themselves, the girls are on a course for self-destruction. Somehow, they must come to terms with everything since the accident, and possibly trust those that want to help them. But the secrets can't be revealed to outsiders, can they?

5.0 von 5 Sternen übertrifft meine Vorstellungen! 10. August 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Nachdem ich "IMPULSE" gelesen hatte, war ich nicht nur von der ganz individuellen Schreibweise von Ellen Hopkins positiv überrascht worden, sondern auch die Geschichten selbst sind sehr fesselnd.

Identical erzählt die Geschichte zweier Zwillinge, die unterschiedlicher eigentlich kaum mehr sein können. Das Buch war so gut, dass ich es kaum weglegen wollte.
Das Ende war dann sozusagen die goldene Krönung!

Es lohnt sich definitiv das Buch zu lesen und sich auch die anderen Werke von Ellen Hopkins anzusehen

5.0 von 5 Sternen "I try not to look at the girl in the mirror as I pass by" 19. Oktober 2008
Von Linda Bulger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical twins, 16 years old, mirror images; physically alike but in personality very different. They are half of a deeply dysfunctional family. Their mother, a politician running for office in Washington, has left them in every way possible; their father, a judge, numbs himself with whiskey and pills before coming to one daughter's bed while the other alternately hates him for it and longs for his love.

Kaeleigh, soft-centered, binges and cuts herself, can't feel worthy of the young man who loves her; and finds her only common ground with an 80-year-old woman who lives in the residential center where she works part-time. Raeanne, on the other hand, is tough and cold, has sex with dangerous boys for drugs, steals booze and oxy from her father, and purges to free herself from the venom of her past.

The unbearable events that poison the twins' present are rooted in the past, but just how far back? The car accident when they were eight years old, or further back in their parents' youth? The foreshadowing is woven through the present story, and even if the reader glimpses the truth before full disclosure, the book's worth rests not in its revelation but in the escalation of pain resulting from the family history.

I had not read any earlier books by author Ellen Hopkins so I was unprepared for the highly original design concept of this book. Done entirely in free verse in the alternating voices of the sisters, the words on the page are arranged in patterns that reflect the tone of the story. Letters, hearts, teardrops; tight intense verses; jagged word explosions on the page; and most interesting of all, where the story transitions from one twin to the other, the words on the facing pages mesh together like the teeth of a zipper. I found it literally impossible to put this book down and read it in one long session. The originality of design hooked me, but the intensity of the story delivered a punch that will stay with me for a long time.

In publisher-speak, the category "Young Adult" refers to readers approximately 12 to 18 years old. Identical would be better suited for the more mature reader toward the upper end of that range, having explicit scenes involving sex, alcohol and drug abuse, purging and cutting. Any adult wanting to understand the pressures and realities of teen life will find this book enlightening, and for everyone else it's a fast, riveting read; dark, but beautifully paced and crackling with painful truth. Five stars at least.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A brilliant book dealing trauma and brokenness 23. Dezember 2011
Von Tiffany A. Harkleroad - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Raeanne and Kaeleigh are identical twins. Identical on the outside, at least, but inside, the girls could not be more different. Kaeleigh harbors a secret, Raeanne harbors one as well. As Kaeleigh deals with her fathers unwanted affections, Raeanne pines for them. As Kaeleigh binges, Raeanne purges. As Kaleigh pushes boys away, Raeanne juggles multiple partners. What happens when all the secrets bubble to the surface?

I have read many of Ellen Hopkins' young adult books, but this was, by far, the most powerful of them all. This book focuses on trauma, and the effects it can have on the lives of everyone involved. Trauma spanning generations, states, political affiliations. There is also an emphasis on seeking wholeness in unlikely and unhealthy ways. We see brokenness in nearly every character in the book, each of them using different means to feel whole again.

I thought the character development was so incredibly done, particularly once the secrets are all revealed. This is one of those books that, once you know the ending, you are compelled to go re-read it again, looking for all the hidden clues. And Hopkins is a master of hidden clues. I found this writing to be really brilliant, and it reminds me why I love novels written in verse form so much.

I know that books with tough subject matter are questionable for young adult readers, so parents should be fully aware of the content before allowing their children to read it. This book is probably most appropriate for young adult readers at the older end of that spectrum, late high school to early college age.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Emotionally impactful and gripping 29. August 2009
Von Vania Stoyanova - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ellen Hopkins's IDENTICAL is....WOW! I know that's not much of a review and if I could I would just leave it at that. The last book I felt such amazement for was WINTERGIRLS by Laurie Halse Anderson and although the two books are so different they both have one thing in common... they go for guts, gritty and dark. They go straight for the jugular sparing nothing and showing us the raw insides.
Hopkins is a master writer, lyrical and poignant, as she tells the story of twin girls, Raeanne and Kaeleigh. One who goes off the deep end in a self destructing manner and the other who hides it inside and takes the pain. The girls are troubled by sexual abuse, parents who busy themselves with life and ignore them, emotional and psychological pain that haunts and tatters them occasionally. Each girl battles her own demons in her own way and Hopkins does well to get us inside the battered psyche of the two troubled teens.
Even though I listened to this book the story was just as impactful and heart wrenching as the written, poem like pages might be. Hopkins story was gritty, messy, and painful to listen to but at the end still filled with hope. Point of the story... you always have a choice. I recommend this book to fans of dark and emotional themes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen YA Perfection 7. April 2014
Von Monet - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I always think the Ellen Hopkins book I just read was her best by far, and then I start the next one.

This is now my newest favorite of her collections. Though that could change as I'm now reading Perfect.

Her writing style is flawless. Every story has it's fill of emotional baggage, and devastating plot twists. She leaves you sitting at the end thinking, "WOW what did I just finish reading." And I love every page of it.

This story didn't fail at leaving me emotionally wrecked and wanting more. There was a good amount of foreshadowing, but I was still blown away in the end. I love both of the sister characters in their own special ways. I loved how raw and real she is with all of the issues at hand.

YA perfection as always.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mind-blowing 9. Juli 2013
Von T. R. Stoddard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I have very recently become a huge Ellen Hopkins fan. Between her tough topics, lyrical writing style, and character driven plot, I am totally hooked. So far I've read Perfect, Crank, Tricks, and Identical. Identical is, by far, my very favorite up to date. The twist at the end literally made me shut the book for five minutes to recover. I looked over to my boyfriend and said "OH MY GOD!" It was the only response worthy of the twist. I normally catch on to twists pretty easily, but it came from left field. As an author myself, I know how amazing it must feel to accomplish that sensation.

Honestly, one of the best books I have ever read. I commend her for covering the subjects she does, without being gratuitous. Identical has made a forever fan out of me.
