Breathe Book Review

This could go far. Oh Bea, how I adored you. The world of Breathe was fascinating. It was really bugging me, this love triangle, I’m ok with having the ‘ 2 boys fighting over a girl’ type of triangle, but the other way around triangles?

Nonetheless, I like Breathe, mainly because of the message the story conveyed but I like the story itself too, of course. She’s one of the most human characters I’ve ever read about and while in the beginning it was a struggle to identify with her, I quickly found myself pulled into her character. Other books in this series. And the answer was no.

In sxrah 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! There’s a fair amount of violence in Breathewhich includes a knife fight, a riot, a couple of fatal shootings, and a serious beating. Not only was the plot spectacular and original, but the characters were extremely likable and the writing was without a doubt incredible.


I do think the action seemed a little rushed at times, and Crossan needs to work on her descriptions. I think you’ll agree with me. I might have been able to chalk this up to just another case of Insta! Carnegie Medal Nominee Categories Fiction Non-fiction Children’s books Authors. The characters were incredibly likable and the plot and the writing made me absolutely fall in love.

But I have to admit grudgingly that not everyone can do that. She was rude most of the time, she is drossan and she cares only about herself.

Breathe by Sarah Crossan – book review

The story was good enough, and I think I may have liked it before I became pickier. I must admit another thing I liked was the ending and how it really sets up an exciting beginning for the next book. Apr 14, Mel Barnes rated it it was amazing Shelves: Everything came easy to him because he was a Premium, but when he found out about certain things, he took control, and I like him just a little bit better because of it.

But to rub it in her face although unknowingly just made me mad.

Breathe by Sarah Crossan – review

She’s rude to people, and later, even though she begins to start feeling for them, she’s still kind of stony. Each narrator is a teen living in this world and each brings a different perspective to the story. And although all the ingredients for a tension-filled, action-packed book are there, I had trouble buying into the whole menacing cossan – it felt more like the trio were cdossan bunch of naughty schoolkids that would be grounded, not that their lives were in danger.

It was my MOST anticipated fall release. I think if Crossan added xarah little more to the side stories rather than having every scene center around the major plot, she could develop the characters more and also make it seem less jumpy and predictable. 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.


But verse novels to dystopia? I will review it though. Breathe is definitely readable and Crossan has done a great job creating an endearing setting as well as three main characters that you can’t help but invest yourself brwathe. Considering bombs, surviving greathe the wild, and having a little old lady Maude steal your air tank at knifepoint don’t really figure into the picture for these three teens.

Refresh and try again.
