Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
The idea of time travel isn't something new but it is always kind of intriguing to read.
My excitement got a little bumped when I read the first few chapters. It felt like a mix of Pirate of the Caribbean and the Ruby Red Series by Kerstin Gier.
>> A LITTLE SPOILER ALERT <<
Another thing I dislike in general are characters who are too nice. Unfortunately Etta is one of them. She is good natured, beautiful in every possible way and loved by everyone she talks to. BORING!
Nicholas on the other hand is this proud guy from a different century who has a problem fitting in because of his skin colour. As a former servent and now full-time pirate he had his fair share of bitterness. Way more interesting!
As soon as these youngsters eyed each other, it became clear how their story will continue.
Halfway through the book I had to change my mind on a few things.
There is SO MUCH history and detail and that is something I absolutely love!
Not sure if all historic events actually took place but I believe Alex Bracken made sure to be as close to true events as possible. Hats off for that!
And of course the story itself turned out to be a lot more interesting than I first thought.
Especially the ending was unexpected and a good way to prepare the readers for the sequel.
Gosh, it was so hard to decide how many stars I should rate this book. Did I like it? Did I REALLY like it?
The ending made me really like the book and although I wasn't planning on reading the sequel, I do have to admit that I am curious how the story will continue. Argh!
But I settled for 3.5 beautiful stars.
Let's see if Etta meets Julian.
I have a devious preference for complicated love triangles. :) *evil chuckle*
I already read „The Darkest Minds“-Trilogy written by Alexandra Bracken and really enjoyed it. So I was really happy to hear, that she was going to publish a new book and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Passenger is the first book in a duology. I’m not 100% certain, but I think the second book is going to be published in 2017. The premise had me very intrigued and I wasn’t disappointed. To tell you right at the beginning, this book is nothing like “The Darkest Minds” It’s about time travel, pirates and a scavenger hunt. But let me start with a small summary. I try not to spoil anything. One of our main characters is Henrietta, called Etta. A very talented violinist. She practices almost every minute and her biggest problems are her stage fright and when she will finally have her debut as a soloist. But of course things don’t go as planned and she gets kidnaped to the 1700s. There she meets Nicholas, a pirate, who has to bring her to the man who ordered her kidnaping. He’s called Cyrus Ironwood But why was she kidnaped? That’s where the scavenger hunt comes into play. Ironwood wants an important artifact which Etta’s mom hid and now Etta should deceiver the clues her mother left and bring the artifact to Cyrus. The start of an epic journey through space and time…
I really loved the characters. They are well developed and everyone has his/her one personality. Etta and Nicholas have an instant connection and you can feel the chemistry between them. You just have to love them. And you just love to hate the antagonists.
The story is well written and it’s clear how much time Alexandra Bracken invested in researching the different time periods. Sometimes it was like I was standing right in the middle of the story.
I really loved this book and finished it in a few days. It was really hard to put it down sometimes. And now we have to wait till next year to know what is going to happen. And that is really hard. Especially after this ending. I’m not telling how it’s ending. I’m just telling you, you won’t see it coming….
I had high hopes for this book. I loved the Darkest Minds and knew that Alex is a rather good author, capable of authentic character- and world-building and, very important for me, of making a story so suspenseful and exciting that you can hardly put it down. (Shortly after I laid hand on the Darkest Minds trilogy, I knew I was lost. I read day and night and couldn't stop. Was finished after the weekend.)
Yes, sorry, there comes the But.
This book is so very different from Darkest Minds. There, the focus is (if I remember correctly) more on danger, adventure, friendship, suspenseful and breathtaking moments, surprises even, and as cherry on the top: a sweet little love story.
But Passenger, for me, was lacking something. I'm not a huge fan of teens falling desperately in love being the core of a book. But this is what happens in Passenger. It's about two teens falling for each other. The danger they're in, their whole "quest" seems to be only secondary ... Nicholas is an OK character, although for me he is waaay too into it. Etta here Etta there O so beautiful eyes O I am so lost. That's unfortunately the only thing that stuck in my mind when thinking about him. Etta though seemed to be quite a fighter, a strong and confident person standing up for what she believes in. I liked her, surprisingly. (I always tend to dislike female protagonists and fancy male ones) She made me laugh, surprised me even.
Then there's Mister Super Evil Antagonist Cyrus Ironwood. Ugh. Booooring bloke. He didn't seem dangerous when he was introduced to the reader (as Etta met him in person). He didn't seem like the unbeatable mastermind and authority that the story required. Rather like a nasty little terrier barking furiously at the post man. Well.
The worst part, the thing that bugs me the most, is the plot. The lack of suspense. I don't want to use the word "boring" because I was not bored. But still, I had the constant urge for *more*. I *needed* something interesting or surprising to happen - but in the end, I was rather disappointed. The story has potential, but the whole family history, the time travel, the one-sided boring motives that the characters had (espacially Cyrus) ... I expected more.
On the other hand,
I did not regret reading this book. Credits where credits are due. Alex did a good job with all he research. The historical bits in Passenger are precious. I loved the authenticity. The places Nick and Etta visited seemed more real to me than Nick and Etta themselves. Plus, pirates are underrated. I loved the 1776 timeline the most. The atmosphere, The people. And I enjoyed all the chapters more when written in Nicholas's point of view, for they had the 1776 atmosphere attached to them.
Summing up: Passenger is a good book with a gorgeous cover, OK characters and a rather shiftless plot (too much romance, I'd need more action, please!). I'm a huge critic and had high expectations, especially for Alex Bracken. So take that into account, as well, when reading this. Because nevertheless, I recommend Passenger for fans of romance, time travel and historical books!
