Kurzbeschreibung

In 2015, a race of alien Others conquered Earth. They enslaved humanity not by force, but through an aggressive mind control that turned people into contented, unquestioning robots.

Except sixteen-year-old Althea isn’t content at all, and she doesn’t need the mysterious note inside her locket to tell her she’s Something Else. It also warns her to trust no one, so she hides the pieces that make her different, even though it means being alone.

The autumn she meets Lucas, everything changes.

Althea and Lucas are immune to the alien mind control, and together they search for the reason why. What they uncover is a stunning truth the Others never anticipated, one with the potential to free the brainwashed human race.

It’s not who they are that makes them special, but what.

And what they are is a threat. One the Others are determined to eliminate for good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing BOOK 21. Dezember 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This Book first attracted me because of the amazing cover! I love the cover! BUT I'm not someone who buys books based on pretty covers, so I read the synopsis and I fell in love with it even more!
I ordered the book online even though I'm on a book-buying-ban xD (I already have to much books that wait to be read). I just couldn't resist!!!

Whispers in Autumn is amazing! I really loved how you start out not knowing anything about this invaded future earth, much like Althea herself didn't know what's going on!
I don't wanna spoil anything.... so I just want to say that I think this book deserves way more attention!!! It's really really good!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen love this unique dystopian! MUST read for dystopian fans! 22. Juli 2012
Von Ashelynn Hetland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 rating! :)

IN A SENTENCE:

While the dystopian market is crowded, Whispers in Autumn stands out with its aliens, Dissidents, and traveling between the seasons. Trisha Leigh makes you feel like you are in Connecticut in the fall with Althea, piecing together why the Wardens are here and what they want. I loved this one and wish you do, too.

REVIEW:

Confession time: I am in a place right now where I'm not wanting to read dystopian. Especially new dystopian novels. There are some sequels I am dying to get my hands on right now, but for a new series? Forget about it. I've had my dystopian fix bring me something else PLEASE!

Guys, Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh isn't like most dystopians out there. It's a little bit like The Host by Stephenie Meyer, but that's adult; for the most part, Whispers in Autumn is unique to the YA dystopian world. It features aliens, which I'm not a huge fan of, but it's just SO GOOD.

After I finished Whispers in Autumn, I tweeted that I was in a happy bookglow. You know what I'm talking about, where you're just so HAPPY with how it ended, even if it's a little cliffhangery, and you don't want to start another book, instead want to reread the book you finished (or the sequel if it's out)? I haven't had that moment in a long time--the last one I really remember is Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready. That's not saying I'm not happy after reading a book, it's just a rare feeling (for me at least).

I absolutely adored this one. It's gorgeously written and it felt like I was with Althea and it was autumn. I was afraid of the Others and the Wardens, of Denshi and even of this mysterious Ko person. I wanted to know more about Althea and what made her Something Else.

I do have to say, though, that some of the language was weird for me. For instance, Althea says "banana balls" for crazy or even as a cuss word, and I cracked up every time. Although she did say "balls" once and I liked that a lot more than "banana balls." I can't even write it without laughing. Also: Cell is the word for School, and it really made me wonder how that came to be. This is probably twenty-ish years in the future, if my thinking is correct, and some of the language just made me pause and think about it because it's kinda a drastic change, you know? Like the words should be more in the future.

But aside from that, I really did enjoy this. I loved how unique it was, and even Lucas. Aw, Lucas. (Fils! </3) The romance in this book made me grin so hard and wish that they would kiss even though that isn't Acceptable when you aren't Partnered.

I would highly recommend picking up your very own copy of Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh because it is THAT good. And you know you want to know who Althea really is, and of course Fils! I mean Lucas. Of course I mean Lucas. Why would I want you to meet a fish?

3.0 von 5 Sternen I'm on the fence with this book 2. Oktober 2012
Von Ginger-read Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Whispers in Autumn is a book that has me stumped. I can't decide exactly what I think of it. There are aspects that I really enjoyed and things that drove me nuts. Let me see if I can break it down.

Althea is different. While everyone around her is content with the alien control that has taken over the world, she is not. She feels, she cares, she hurts. She also travels, unwillingly and with no notice, from place to place based on the season. She has never experienced a summer, it has always eluded her. She is in the possession of a secret note that tells her she is not the same as the other humans and that, in time, she will find others like her.

Lucas enters her life in a dark and lonely time and he too is different. As Althea and Lucas find each other, so do the Others who have been searching for them their entire lives.

What I liked:

Whispers in Autumn starts off with such a somber tone. The first several chapters have this entire melancholic feel as Althea has to hide the fact that she feels and thinks and questions. It is not often that you find a book where everyone is so bland and timid, I enjoyed the style.

The concept is great. I am quickly becoming a fan of YA/Science Fiction. Leigh delivers a great twist on alien invasion adding a nice sprinkle of elemental magic and dystopian government control. The combination was interesting.

The simple brutality of a life without pure feelings was intriguing and harsh. People get hurt and nobody cares. People die and nobody cares. Althea, herself, has to act like she doesn't care.

Althea and Lucas were very real characters. They are flawed and they stumble through their existence and their feeling for each other. After so much time hiding feelings, they are like newborns just trying to figure things out. At first it was annoying, how childish they could be, but then it hit me...of course they would be. They have spent a lifetime pretending, they don't really know how to act and behave as honest human beings.

What I didn't like:

The first few chapters were quite confusing for me. I felt as though I was thrown into the middle of the story and had to wait for it to catch up with itself. There was a lot happening with no real explanation and it took me longer than I would have liked to get a real feel for what was happening.

On top of that there were times where I just did not fully understand what was happening or had happened. There were some holes that had me scratching my head.

There is this strange 'thing' that has become quite popular in YA/Dystopia/SciFi of late. It is the capitalization of random words. Okay, maybe not really random but not always with real purpose either. This one has a lot of capitalization. It was too much for this reader. Obviously some people get it and like it...I just don't understand its design.

So you decide, did I really like it or really not? I'm still planted firmly on the fence.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book! 8. August 2012
Von kairibai - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Here's the thing...when I choose a book to read, I avoid three main categories: trilogies/series, sci-fi/fantasy, and y.a. lit. (Needless to say, I haven't read any of the HUNGER GAMES, TWILIGHT, or HARRY POTTER books...)

I have to admit that I was a little concerned when I realized that WHISPERS IN AUTUMN fit into all three. In fact, I was already preparing a gentle, if somewhat vague, review maybe highlighting a bright spot or two.

Trisha Leigh, you grabbed me and didn't let me go for two days!

First of all, having this mysterious story unfold in the first-person point-of-view is fantastic. You built suspense and fear and excitement, and I couldn't put the book down.

Your descriptions were enough to put me completely into the story, but they didn't slow down the pace or make me want to skip ahead. Your writing style flowed smoothly, and yet, the story took some unexpected turns that made me gasp aloud. And the way you tie in the seasons...well, it's just beautiful and poetic.

As for your characters, I mean, I'm in love. Althea is fierce and vulnerable at the same time (how did you do that?!), but she shocked me sometimes and not always in a good way. Her struggle and growth are both heartbreaking and inspiring. You set her up to be truly dynamic in the next books.

And Lucas.

Lovely.

You captured that chemistry, those confusing, tingling, awkward, exciting emotions of early love so perfectly!

I am so excited that I not only liked your book but loved it! I have already recommended it to many friends and family.

Thank you, thank you for sharing the first part of your captivating story with all of us. I can barely wait for WINTER OMENS! (And thank you for not making us wait too long!)

4.0 von 5 Sternen great sci fi 9. Oktober 2012
Von makdove - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I really liked this story. It was a fascinating take on alien invasion and mind control. It was reminiscent of a book called "A Wrinkle in Time," by Madeline L. Engle. I really enjoyed the use of seasons and elemental power. The world controlled by the aliens was very frightening.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good in the beginning, boring at the end 27. Dezember 2012
Von Booksmartie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Whispers in Autumn totally had me in after I read the synopsis. The whole idea of including seasons and the elements and season-travelling into a dystopian novel sounded so original to me that I had to read it!

I was a bit disappointed, though.
I liked this book in the beginning, when the reader was introduced to the story, this whole new dystopian world. The concept of who ruled the world was very different from everything I've ever read before, but then the how was very ... unoriginal.

Whispers in Autumn reminded me a lot of Matched with the daily routine everyone has to follow and the food that's served in just the right amount and the exercise everyone has to get and how the government chooses your job for you and how Althea had to pretend she was like everyone else while she was clearly not.
The elements that could've been original - as I said the story of how the US became what it is in Whispers in Autumn or who the government really was - ended up being a blur to me. Nothing was really, clearly explained, everything came in bits and pieces that somehow made sense and somehow didn't.
What I was missing, as well, was really fast action. I mean there were a lot of incidences that increased the suspense, very crazy things happened to people and in general, but throughout the whole book there was never that moment when my hands begin to shake and I can't put the book down because there is a very bad fight or a life-saving escape or something.
The story just goes on, the situation gets kinda dangerous, the government is sorta suspicious and the time is somewhat running out for the kids.
And then the book ends and leaves us guessing what will happen next and I'm not sure yet if I want to find out.

Don't get me wrong, though. In retrospect Whispers in Autumn lacked a lot of things for me, but in general I enjoyed reading the book and it was pretty short, so that I would recommend it to people who really liked Matched and who don't need a lot of action in their dystopias.
