Share via Email When oxygen levels plunge in a treeless world, a state lottery decides who will live inside the pod. Everyone else will surely suffocate, everyone else will die.
Years later, society is torn in two, the Premiums and the Auxiliaries. But is there truth in what Breathe has told them? Or can life really be possible Outside, if only they were taught how? Alina belongs to the Resistance, and they know how to live on the outside, they know how to be free. Breathe is, at first glance, a typical dystopian YA novel: government hiding something, teenagers know what it is, teenagers do something about it, truth is told.
The characters were well written, funny and real and the setting was well described. The different perspective changes with each chapter were brilliant, it allowed me to see into the eyes of all three of the main characters and what they were thinking and how they felt.
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 second he was infatuated with Alina and the next he was suddenly in love with his best friend.
A chapter or two in his perspective showing his confusion at the change of feelings would have made it more gradual and a little more believable but all in all it was sweet and the ending was a hooking climax.
In fact it messed up all my plans of finishing the pile of books on my shelf because now all I want to do is buy the sequel, Resist! Join the site and send us your review!
Breathe by Sarah Crossan - review
First of all, this book followed your typical dystopian plot - oppressive government, rebels who know the truth, duped citizens who finds out the truth and decide to do something about it, all hell breaks loose, etc. So for me, the big question was, did I like the characters? And the answer was no. I totally understand the disheartening feeling that comes from unrequited love, but she was such a pushover. And your hero - Quinn.
