Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

It's 1840 and in the small village of Clifton the children are dying from an outbreak of diphtheria, and there is no medicine to save them. Their deaths seem inevitable until Jessie's mother admits that she knows how to cure them. The problem is that it isn't as simple as using a little medicine. Clifton's future hangs in the balance and the only way to cure the children is to tell Jessie the truth: Clifton is an experiment, and it is really the year 1996.

Running Out of Time is a complex and utterly gripping novel which examines the effects of a human experiment that begins to go horribly wrong. Jessie is sent out into the real world to find medicine, leaving her loved ones behind to face a treacherous journey. As she treads softly through the horrors of this brave, new world, she has to come to terms with the fact that her whole life so far has been part of a strange experiment while realising that there are dangerous people out there who will do anything to stop her telling the truth.

This is a clever book, which uses attention-grabbing, fast-paced writing as a way of questioning the world we live in, and will capture the imagination of any curious reader with a passion for cracking story-telling. (Ages 10 and over)--Susan Harrison -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Format: Taschenbuch
With all of the carbon-copy junk novels out there

today I find it wonderful to find a book that has

a unique plot that twists like a vine.

13 year old Jessie lives in a small Indiana

town in 1840, or so she thinks. When a

diphtheria epidemic breaks out among the

children she suddenly finds out the truth,

it's 1996. For years her family has been
living in a "pretend" world where it's still the

1800's. Jessie suddenly finds herself lost in
an entirely different century where there is a
cure for diphtheria. She must find that cure
and alert the world of the injustice that is

going on where she comes from. This is a
wonderful book that will keep you captivated from
beginning to end!

Thirteen year old Jessie lives in a frontier town, Clifton Indiana in the year 1840. It is a nice comfortable town. Her father is a blacksmith which is indispensible and her mother looked after sick people at night when the local Doc was asleep. One day her mother discovered that the town was plagued with diphtheria. People were going to die without proper medicine. So due to circumstances Jessie was sent out of town to bring back help. This trip could prove deadly for Jessie as she is about to find her world turned up-side-down and we are also in for a shock as we discover a cabal behind a deadly plot.

They say that the people that write best are those people that write about what they know and Margaret Peterson Haddix actually knew of a tourist place similar to where our story starts. Yet the strength in Haddix's story is not as much the intriguing plot as it is her description of people and things. She makes you wonder what you would do.

I knew or thought I pretty much knew the story before reading the book as I saw the movie "The Village" (2004). However the movie was readjusted to match M. Night Shyamalan's standard formula including the standard ending twist. The book was more complex and did not need the minute twist.

The Book Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix was a very enjoyable book. Jessie's story is very similar to "The Truman Show" because they are both watched over, except they don't know it. Jessie is "living" in the 1800's except she is really living during 1996. Some of Jessie's friends are starting to die and she has to go beyond her city to reality. It was a very interesting transition. It was a very interesting book because of the way Margaret Haddix writes it. She thought very different. Not too many books are like the one that she wrote. I think that she is an amazing author because the people in the book are living in an imaginary world. Although they are living in the past, the children in the town don't know it. They do think that it is the 1800's. They always wondered why they couldn't go beyond some places. They never knew why they couldn't climb trees. They were "locked away" in a world that wasn't reality. They were living in a world where they had not too much technology. I recommend this book to all people who love to read historical fiction because it talks about the way people lived in the 1800's. I would also recommend this book to children who are in elementary school or the beginning of middle school.

Jessie believes she is being raised in the 1840s, but the year is actually 1996. You see, Jessie lives in a tourist site made to look like a real village of 150 years ago. Her classmates have begun dropping out of her small, one-room classroom, and the medicines they are given don't seem to work. Jessie's mother finally tells her the truth about their community, and it's up to Jessie to escape from Clifton and seek help from the "real world." Although the plot is quite serious and suspenseful, I had to laugh at the scene where Jessie sees cars for the first time and thinks they move by witchcraft. My favorite part of this well written story is when she calls a press conference and reveals the "shocking secret" of Clifton. I haven't read many books with female protagonists, so it was neat to see a young girl making things happen - it's usually a boy. Now imagine this: We're moving along, thinking it's the year 2000 when a terrible disease spreads through our city. Eventually we learn that the year is really 2150 and people have been paying money to watch our EVERY move since we were born. Get the idea? Read this book!
