Kurzbeschreibung

Part X-Files, part Freaks and Geeks, and totally '80s!

In the fall of 1984, Cold War tensions between Washington and Moscow are close to breaking.

But in sleepy Gainesville, Florida, fourteen-year-old Janis Graystone is mainly worried about starting high school, earning a spot on the varsity soccer team, and keeping her older sister from running her life. And then there are her paranormal experiences. Experiences where she awakens in her backyard — out of her body — with the disturbing sense that someone is watching her.

For Scott Spruel, the start of high school means the chance to start over. And he's willing to ditch everything — computer hacking, Dungeons & Dragons marathons, even his comic book collection (well, except for his X-Men) — if it means getting closer to Janis, the secret love of his life. But what about the eerie delay on his telephone, a delay he senses through powers he is only beginning to understand?

As clocks tick down, Janis and Scott will need the other's help. But first they'll have to find one another and that means traversing Thirteenth Street High's caste system, which can be as brutal as it is unforgiving...

XGeneration is a teen paranormal mystery series, inspired by classic superhero comics and the 1980s.

Rated 16+ for language and some violence

4.0 von 5 Sternen X-Men plus Harry Potter; a good premise well executed 5. Februar 2014
Von Rob Slaven - slavenrm@gmail. com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As usual I received this book for free in exchange for a review. This time it was from a LibraryThing giveaway. Despite that kindness I give my candid thoughts below.

Firstly, I'm going to choose to assume this is aimed at a young-adult audience. The situations are simple enough and kid-focused enough that I think this is probably a good assumption. Because of that target audience, I assess the book rather differently.

As a parent of daughters the age to read this I first want to know if there's anything in it that I wouldn't want them to read. I'm definitively against sex and drugs in YA novels and this novel does great in that regard. There's some very vague hint of kissing but no drugs or alcohol. There is some pretty graphic violence near the end but what teenager hasn't had plenty of that by the time they're 14. The description indicates some adult language and it's in there but nothing to be concerned about. Again, kids have probably heard it and it's not really all that much compared with the average movie.

The second thing I look at is whether there's something in the book that I would definitely want my kids to read, some redeeming message or life lesson to be learned. To that I say, not really. This is really reading candy as we watch some teenagers explore the world around them and learn about their bizarre powers. Nothing earth-shaking in that but it's entertaining enough.

Lastly, I look at whether the kids would want to read it at all. This is purely a judgement of entertainment value and on that score this does pretty well. The first 20% of the book is solid as we figure out what's actually going on and the last 10% one hates to even blink for fear of missing something. It does get somewhat slow in the middle but it's reasonable setup to the bigger picture. One concern I would put forth is just how much interest teenagers of today will have in the world of the 80s from which their parents came. Depending on the level of disdain that your own kids have for your childhood you might think carefully before putting this one down in front of little Billy or Suzie.

So in summary, as a YA novel it's a pretty good pick. As the description says it's X-Men plus Harry Potter or something of that ilk and reasonably entertaining. It won't pluck out your eyeballs and throw them about the room but it's a good premise well executed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Too Fun! 20. Februar 2014
Von Gail Ofterdinger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had a ball reading this book. I was fooled by the beginning and tricked at the end. A simple love quest for a teen geekboy computer hacker who wants to attract sports star teen girl gets mangled in with cold war espionage, magic, and bad people. Let's keep this series coming. It's a winner. My thanks to the author and LibraryThing for a complimentary copy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great YA super hero whimsey. 5. Oktober 2014
Von Allex Q - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm half way through book two of this YA super hero series. I'm really digging it. It's well written (only a few spelling/grammar issues which is one of my biggest pet peeves about self published books. I know editors are expensive but beta readers are free, and can generally catch most wrong word spelled correctly/continuity issues. As I did for award wining author +Rich G. )
There's some good intrigue and a very engaging story. There is some of the usual YA will they won't they teen love story that comes with the genre but so far it hasn't annoyed me too much. I suppose if I was the target demo I would even mind it a bit. I enjoy YA for it's simplicity and whimsey sometimes it's a nice escape from the heavy themes of Adult fiction, plus even tho there's the teen angst and "love" story I don't have to skip through overly descriptive sex scenes or as some books I've read constant descriptions of how person X looks. There was one series (the weather warden books that I eventually quit reading because I got tired of reading about how so and so's skin was this color and his sinewy muscles blah blah blah (seriously like once per chapter. I could almost draw him if I could draw, from memory due to the constant description. )
Any way I know tl:dr but I fully recommend this series at least book 1-2.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great piece of science fiction! 13. Mai 2014
Von Maggiemay1992 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
XGeneration 1: You Don't Know Me by Brad Magnarella is a great piece of science fiction!

Scott and Janis are both freshmen in high school and they have both noticed the development of powers outside human norms. Scott can access electronics with his mind, while Janis not only can astral project when she sleeps, but she also has precognitive and telekinetic abilities. They used to be friends in elementary school, but in middle school, they drifted apart. Now as freshmen, their newfound abilities bring them together again. Not only does Scott have to deal with his new ability, he gives himself a makeover (from nerd to prep), has several encounters with bullies, and has to deal with his love for Janis. Janis, on the other hand, has a sister with the ability to manipulate anyone to do anything, a fear that the neighbor is watching her sister that no one is taking seriously, and a new boyfriend. Janis and Scott work together to solve the mystery surrounding her neighbor.

XGeneration 1: You Don't Know Me is a fantastic book for anyone who likes Mutant X or X Men type stories.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If you remember the old TRS-80 Computers, 11. Oktober 2014
Von jcat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Or "TRASH 80's", as they were fondly (or..not...) called--then you may get a kick out of this YA that takes place in the 1980's.

Other than the 80's time frame, this is a pretty standard YA type Sci-Fi/Paranormal story. The characters are starting their first year of high school. There's teen angst. There are strange and developing 'powers'. There's teen angst. There's the first bloom of romance. There's teen angst. There's some Mystery/adventure. There's teen angst.

But I am old enough to remember those 80's, and still managed to kind of enjoy this YA story. And I can just imagine a younger reader asking their parents about some of the 1980's references. Would a younger reader enjoy it? I think they would. It has some sports, bullying incidents, puppy love, and a lot of High School issues. As an adult, I'd call it a 3-Star 'OK' read. It had good character development, but I felt that the ending created more questions than answers. I'm not sure if I'll go on to the next book, but I give it a 4-Star based on its target YA audience.
