Kurzbeschreibung

18. März 2014

The Fault in Our Stars meets Sarah Dessen in this lyrical novel about a girl with cancer who creates a take-no-prisoners bucket list that sets off a war at school—only to discover she's gone into remission.

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs. So she convinces her best friend to help her with a crazy bucket list that's as much about revenge as it is about hope. But just when Alice's scores are settled, she goes into remission, and now she must face the consequences of all she's said and done.

Contemporary realistic fiction fans who adore Susane Colasanti and Jenny Han and stories filled with romance and humor will find much to love in this incredible debut.

Buchrückseite

What if you'd been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you?

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, who she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that's as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her archnemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger). But just when Alice's scores are settled, she goes into remission.

Now Alice is forced to face the con­sequences of all that she's said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she caused irreparable damage to the people around her—and to the one person who matters most?

Julie Murphy's Side Effects May Vary is a fearless and moving tour de force about love, life, and facing your own mortality.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The main character is perfectly flawed 18. März 2014
Von A Reading Nurse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This has been one of those books that I have read mixed reviews about. There has been so much talk about Alice's character that I was worried about how I would feel about her. But after reading this book, I could see why everyone had the opinion they had of her, but in my opinion Alice was just perfectly flawed.

I knew that this book was going to bring out some major emotions, and I had prepared myself for that. I like a good book that makes me cry. Having a good cry every now and then is very therapeutic and after having the long intense month of preparing for my nursing boards a good cry is exactly what I needed. And this an amazing 1st chapter, that frankly has you crying by the end of the first few pages.

It is difficult enough to be a teenage girl in today's society. Frankly I don't know if I would even survive high school these days. But being a teenage girl who is fighting Leukemia, that is probably the hardest thing I can imagine. This book is told in 2 perspectives, Alice's and Harvey's. It had also is told in two time tables what I like to call Pre-Remission and Post- Remission.

After months of intense chemotherapy sessions and watching her body deteriorating, Alice has accepted the fact that she is going to die. But being a teenage girl, who feels that she has been wronged by every aspect of her life, she wants to achieve a type of retribution and make those that have wronged her suffer before her passing. Yes, some of the things that she does is absolutely horrendous and even sickening. But what most reviewers did not understand was that Alice's actions were actually following a normal pattern of dealing with grief, which every person goes through and some get stuck in one phase longer than others.

While Alice is dealing with and frankly losing her fight with Leukemia, she finds herself getting closer to with Harvey, a family friend who has been in love with her sine they were young. High school had drifted them apart and yes, Alice herself may have been also a reason to why they were no longer friends, but when she needed a support system Harvey was the first person she turned to. When she is living what might seem like her last days, Alice allows herself to open up and express how she truly feels for Harvey. This is a scary thing for anyone to do. Adult, teenager, sick or dying. But Alice feels like she is at the end of her life and has nothing left to lose so she opens up to Harvey.

But the next day, Alice receives the 4 words any person bravely fighting cancer wants to hear: You are in Remission. But Alice was not planning on beating her cancer, she had accepted her fate and was not planning for her future, because she didn't have one. At this point there was 1 line that absolutely blew me away. I had to read it several times, and I even shared this line with some of my friends outside the blogging community. And frankly I feel that this line sums up this entire story perfectly.

"I knew how to die.
It was the living that scares me."

Now that Alice has a future to plan and to live, she is even more scared and makes some crazier decisions than she did Pre-Remission. But there is hope at the end of this tunnel. And towards the end of book Alice learns to accept the beautiful bright future in front of her and trys to right all of her wrongs. And the end was just heart-warming and touching and makes up for some of the harder scenes of this book. All in all this book was perfection. And I highly recommend it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club Review: Amazing. An explosion of feelings. 18. März 2014

REVIEW:

If you ever thought, just by reading the synopsis of this book, that this book could 'cause you an overdose of feelings, then you're absolutely right.

Julie Murphy's debut novel is absolutely brilliant. To make readers feel everything the character is feeling and to make you live, you have to be an amazing writer. And she definitely is. Because she not only wrote a dramatic novel where the main character has a serious disease that's making her die and then she's cured, she also has to endure with everything she did when she thought she was dying and also to see the reaction from Julie's character when they told her she's going to life. That she has another chance. So this isn't only about dramatic cliffhangers throughout the whole book, it's also about revenge, about life and about love, too.

The story is about Alice, a girl who is diagnosed with leukemia. Alice's just waiting for her "life-clock" to stop ticking when the good news come knocking on her door: she goes into remission. Alice should be happy about that, but if you were dying and some people might have make your life miserable, wouldn't you want some revenge before going into the afterlife? Well, that's exactly what she does. However, her afterlife might have to wait and now Alice has to answer for everything she's done this past year.
With a marvelous bucket list full of revenge steps and her best friend who's in love with her, Alice has to face her new reality after having her life back.

What I loved about this story is not obviously the important amount of drama that makes you kind of unstable during the whole story, but that you could see the story from Alice point of view and Harvey's.

Harvey is one of those characters you instantly love. He's one of those good and lovable boys that girls should always fell for. To give you a visual, to me it was kind of the perfect boy next door. You can see from the very first page that he has like a HUGE crush on Alice and it's kind of cute. However, I felt really bad to see how she treated him. And I was cheering the very moment he stood up for himself.
You can see all the changes in their relationship in the story: before the disease, during the disease and after. And that's one of the reasons this story is also about love.

Alice might not be your favorite character (mine it wasn't). I didn't like how she treated Harvey and wouldn't want to be her friend. But this only makes the story more believable. Not every single person is perfect in life and everyone has done something in life that he or she regrets. Alice is a teen with a lot of teen-feelings (yep, those amazing teen feelings) who has a short time before she passes away, so she decides to live her last days in a vengeful way.

To sum up this review, I would say that Julie Murphy's debut novel, Side Effects May Vary, is one of those books you have to read. I can assure you that the book would captivate you from the very first page and that you would be so fascinated and immerse in Alice's life and decisions that you won't put down the book until you have read all the story. Full of emotion and feelings, this story would rock your world and that's why I am giving to Side Effects May Vary five gorjuss dolls.

2.0 von 5 Sternen No....... 18. Juni 2014
Von Melissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book recommended to me as someone who liked The Fault is in Our Stars.
No.
This was NOT comparable.
I couldn't even like either of the main characters. One always verged on the side of being a total b*tch and the other was a total carpet being walked all over by another.

I would say more, but I will start ranting.
For those that rate this book higher, I just wonder what they were reading.

3.0 von 5 Sternen okay story, but the ending was disappointing. 3. Mai 2014
Von Sarah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)
Alice has been living life without worrying about consequences, because she knows that her leukaemia will soon kill her. Then she goes into remission.
What will Alice do now? And how many people has she used and alienated while she thought it didn’t matter?

This started off good, but I lost interest half way through, and the ending was a bit of a let-down.

Alice was an okay character, and I liked how she wanted to live her life without restraints because she had an expiry date. I didn’t like the way that she treated Harvey though, all she did was mess with his feelings, without admitting any of her own, which I thought was really bad. She never seemed to consider how he would feel when she died, or how he’d feel when she went into remission, she just thought about how she felt.

The storyline in this was okay, but I lost interest half-way through. I thought that some of Alice’s little revenge tactics were interesting, but I hated all the dilly-dallying around, and wanted the story to move on a bit quicker.
The romance in this was a bit odd. It seemed obvious that Harvey loved Alice, and Alice seemed to love Harvey in return, but then didn’t want to admit it for all sorts of reasons. The way she used him time and time again, never told him her real feelings, and then ignored him was just awful, and I really didn’t like that about her. I wanted her to just man up, and admit her feelings, especially considering the number of times he told her he loved her, but she just carried on being horrible to him.
The ending of this was disappointing for me. It just didn’t feel like an end, and even though Alice did eventually do something nice for someone, based on her previous actions, I could just see her turning around and being nasty again in the next breath, and things just weren’t solid enough for me to finish this thinking that anything had changed.
Overall; okay story, but the ending was disappointing.
6.75 out of 10.
