I enjoyed the characters and didn’t see a need to know the back story. Nook, Hardback, iBooks, Kindle. The Premiums have a lot of advantages and opportunities in this world. Bbreathe and Bea are brought up in a society where oxygen is a privilege.

A couple has a few passionate kisses.

Even the final battle scenes are sort of skimmed over, brushed aside for a neatly wrapped ending and obligatory segue to the sequel. She was pretty mediocre for the bad girl. Breathe by Sarah Crossan – 7th August. Based on 1 review. Without the oxygen tanks, no one would be bresthe to survive. I wrote a proper review on my blog at http: Her feelings for Abel were really surface deep, and I know that she suffers from the lost of her parents, but I didn’t really see that breate her.

Bea is one of the brightest young people in the Pod, but an Auxiliary. To be blunt, the oxygen notation of the book is just a side aspect of crkssan dystopic universe – it’s never fully vetted out, though noted with some half-hearted assertions about why the world is the way it is that comes across as offending and scientifically bogus.

We have two more books to go and unless you throw in a sexy Drifter to mix it up a bit because I can’t say I’m entirely excited for the kissy sappiness for two more books.

Quinn had everything going for him, brearhe good life, a great future, and the adoration of Bea. I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did! It had action and adventure along breathw romance.

In the YA house party, the dystopians are the cool kids that stand around in the kitchen, making people feel uncomfortable and inadequate when they go crossn for some crosean vodka. At the beginning of BreatheQuinn, Alina, and Brea are each focused on their own major problems. Society is divided into the caste system, with Premiums who can buy oxygen and do whatever they like and Auxiliaries who have to be careful with how much oxygen they breathe in, as they have no way to pay extra oxygen.

Quinn, unlike Aline and Bea, is from the privileged class. And only a few get to live in the Pod. Alina is a member of a rebel group, creatively named The Resistance, who do incredibly subversive things like stealing cuttings and growing plants, because it turns out this worldwide oxygen famine is pretty much a BIG. Oxygen has become a problem, and some citizens are moved to l This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea’s Bookshelf. Categories Fiction Non-fiction Children’s books Authors.

You’ll see what I mean when you read the book yourself. I understand that this is a series but a lot of things weren’t discussed and further explored in this book and that really, really bothered me. Bold and brave, Aline seems like she’s not afraid of anything, but inside she can be conflicted. They do the same things. Apr 14, Mel Barnes rated it it was amazing Shelves: How Tech Is Changing Childhood.

The Atlanteans, Book 1. If you read the book which you should! It ju Breathe is an incredibly ironic title. Corporate power is a strong theme in this book, so it will appeal to anyone with an interest in today’s society and issues, not just those who want a bloodbath set in the future.

The thing was it deals about the basic necessity of life which is the air, specifically oxygen, that made the story more complicated and conflicted.

Quinn can afford all the oxygen he needs, among crsosan things, because of his family’s rank, so he comes across as a bit of a wealthy, spoiled brat in terms.


The story is narrated in first person by Alina, Quinn and Bea, who unfortunately sound identical. Definitely worth a read, you will not be left disappointed. And it is kinda annoying because one of the first things the book says is romance. But the multiple povs in this book allowed me to get a proper understanding of her character, and as the book progressed, the character changes that emerged in her I admired.

Love, lies, betrayal—oh, and death. Alina is part of The Resistance, group of people who stood up to Breathe. First of all, the Pod Minister was a very huge character in the book and to just completely not talk about how he died was just disrespectful to the readers.

Breathe by Sarah Crossan – review

It’s so easy to picture her world and really become Aline, Bea, and Quinn. I loved how this book focused more on the actual dystopian world than the romance in the story but I had hoped for more when it came to Quinn realising his affection for Bea; it was like one saeah he was infatuated with Alina and the next he was suddenly in love with his best friend.

As soon as I saw the cover, I was in love with this book. Most of the time he’s clueless about everything and the only thing he cares about are girls.

Alina is a rogue young woman part of a rebel group fighting against the oppressive rule of the Breathe society – which controls the amount of oxygen. Me, I don’t mind. To ask other readers questions about Breatheplease sign up.
