If I were to be completely honest, for whatever reason I couldn’t stop thinking about one of my favorite children’s books of all time while I was reading Pure. A dead baby in 10 trash cans! A high middle schooler could read it but I wouldn’t recommend it unless they’re relatively mature less.

I eventually started liking Partridge too, even though that took a while, but Pressia never really came alive for me. There are over fifty overseas editions of her books. Dec 23, Cathy Day added it Shelves: Plus, I would also like to add that the only thing young adult about ujlianna book was the characters’ ages. In Pure, I wasn’t really sure that I liked any of the characters, save for Bradwell. Three women step out — all fused — a tangle of cloth hiding their engorged middle.

We get even julainna world building which comes by primarily from our visiting more of the world itself. Each character holds their own in this novel.

Like the whole deformities and people fusing to animals and things. Also, we are told that the survivors are no longer able to give birth to normal baby, even animals can only give birth to deformed offspring?


Nic – on to you next! Being fused naggott my computer would totally suck, and having to breathe through a fan in my throat?

Hay personajes secundarios que solo son eso, personajes secundarios, es una lastima. Long scenes were thinly connected by an almost invisibly thread for a barely there plot. But it was obvious in a good way. I’m sorry, but no one could possibly hold a candle to Bradwell. I struggled through all bar sixty-odd pages of it, and it had a rather open, unstatisfying ending.

The writing is so vividly descriptive that you literally inhale the pages. While much of Pure reads like it was spilled from the darkest corners of subconsciousness into a grotesque and unsettling nightmare world, elements of this story are firmly anchored in our own reality, the shadowed parts of our history. It was an unexpected pleasure to return to the characters that were so vividly realized in Pure and follow their story a little deeper into this saga.

Together, he and Pressia hear rumors of a Pure who has escaped from the Dome. Sep 27, Catie rated it really liked it Recommended to Catie by: There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Of course, I said that!

May 01, Natalie rated it it was amazing Shelves: As Partridge’s father sends people to “persuade” Partridge to come back to the Dome, Pressia and Bradwell are racing against time to unlock the secrets to a black box that may contain a secret that could save them all. Okay, I admit the author baggoyt some original ideas going for her, but as soon as the first chapter, I found myself unable to suppress my disbelief when I was told after being exposed to a massive, destructive explosion which destroyed the world as we knew it, the main girl was merged together with a plastic doll, and her grandfather has a fan merged into his body?

The one I felt for the most. Along the way he uncovered terrible secrets about his father Willux, the detonations that occurred, and life outside the walls of the Dome. They certainly didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the book as a whole though, but they could be removed and nothing would be missed.

So what if someone set us up the bomb, or several bombs, and instead of nuclear winter and all the survivors dying of cancer, they got librp to each other and bits of glass and animals and broken doll heads?

Maybe there isn’t any squirrel-handedness going on in Pure but there sure is a lot of doll-head-handedness and bird-backedness going on. I think this is in due part to the writing. We buried our children and when there were too many to bury, we built pyres and burned the bodies of our own children.
