The Name On Your Wrist

summary º eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Helen Hiorns review The Name On Your Wrist 103 Helen Hiorns ´ 3 characters It’s the first thing they teach you when you start school But they don’t need to; your parents tell you when you’re first learning how to say your name It’s drummed into you whilst you’re taking your first stumbling steps It’s your lullaby From the moment it first appears you don’t tell anyone the name on you. It s a rare treasure when you find a book with such a uniue concept that it captures your interest immediately and doesn t let go Until the conclusion that is but I ll get to that laterI ve said it before and I ll say it again dystopias are hit or miss for me I m still making my mind up about this book in general but I can t doubt that the world was beautifully created Everything that you needed was well explained in order to look at its conseuences for the characters That s also where this book is different from others while dystopias like The Hunger Games and Divergent are written in trilogies allowing time for an oppressed protagonist to change the world The Name on Your Wrist is a standalone where it s only the main character s outlook on her world which changesCorin is a cynic through and through with good reason as we learn through the novel the girl s been through a lot Her voice was fresh and interesting with plenty of character and hilarious witty comebacks I m one of those people who love to read them even though I suck at retorts myself and only think of something clever hours after the conversation when my brain is hyperactive before going to sleepShe manages to raise uestions that didn t just reflect to her life but made me think about our world right now and it s one of those great reads that makes you uestion everything even when you ve turned the last page Should humanity have a choice The immediate answer is yes but there s always an exception and this book explores thatThe Name on Your Wrist had one downfall the ending It simply didn t work for me The revelation made sense but in a way it still didn t Okay I m not explaining clearly It was like when you give your money at the checkout but the change doesn t look enough so you hand it back they double recount and everything s there but you re still not happy Basically it fell short and for that it lost a star in my ratingOverall though a very enjoyable read that s worth checking out for the enjoyment factor alonePosted on

summary º eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Helen Hiorns review The Name On Your Wrist 103 Helen Hiorns ´ 3 characters R wristIn Corin's world your carpinomen the name of your soul mate marked indelibly on your wrist from the age of two or three is everything It's your most preciously guarded secret; a piece of knowledge that can give another person ultimate power over you People spend years even decades searching for the one they're suppo. I was sent a link to an eGalley widget to this book saw that it was about soulmates and downloaded it assuming that it would be a nice sweet story about forever teenage love I probably wouldn t have downloaded it if I d realised that it s nothing of the sort that in fact it s one of the bleakest and most uncompromising Dystopian novels I ve ever come across but that would have been my loss I m glad I read it even if it did leave me wanting to curl up under a blankie with a cup of hot chocolate and have a good cryThis is a really remarkable debut from a very talented writer I ve never come across a PoV character uite like this or a narrative voice that struck me in uite the same way The writer walks a razor edge between prose that truly does read like the self obsessed angsty journal rantings of an emotionally broken teenage girl and prose which has the emotional clarity and power reuired to carry a full length book The main character Corin is one of the least immediately likeable and therefore perhaps most realistic female characters I ve read in ages calling up definite echoes of Cat Clarke s unforgettable Grace in her debut Entangled She s strong and yet feeble angry yet vulnerable and she s got everything and everyone all figured out right from the start while simultaneously managing to be wrong about all the most important thingsI love the ideas in this book It creates a Dystopian future which rather than seeming outlandish and shocking feels shockingly plausible to the point of being bland A future in which people in power really do seek to keep everyone safe by making them comfortable appealing to their laziness and desire to fit in and making all their choices for them Each plot and subplot is there to challenge our idealisation of romantic love as the only love that really matters presenting a world where everyone has a soulmate where everyone knows the name of the true love whom they will eventually find and it s a complete nightmareThis book s only real weakness is its ending There s a brilliant twist but sadly the way it s unveiled and the main character s reaction to it rather works against the messages that we ve absorbed from the story up to that point It needed further unpacking and resolving to make it as strong as it should have been But regardless I really admired the author of this book for making so many daring choices and for managing to surprise me Recommended Towards a Comprehensive Theory of Human Learning Lifelong Learning and the Learning Society realised that it s nothing of the sort that in fact it s one of

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis was a good read but had a few plot holes and lacked explanationsKeeping the name on your wrist to yourself is the biggest secret you will haveThis is why i found it difficult to understand why you d get branded with a name at the age of threeSurely if it s meant to be top secret you wouldn t get your name until you re old enough to fully understand how big of a deal it is Corin s opinions about soul mates kept on changing which was really annoyingOne minute she d think that the soul mate thing didn t really work Though the next minute she d be utterly shocked that someone she knew knew someone who went against it and chose their own partnerThe whole marriage aspect in the book got me stumped Not knowing if that s YOUR Tom Or whatever name it may be before you get married is stupid They say that having a match has better odds of a marriage working out than choosing your own partner How is that true when you could be marrying the wrong person entirely just because they have the same nameThe marriage would defiantly have of a chance in working out if they found out they re getting married to the right person before the vows were exchangedEither that or the names could include the last names tooWould make it a lot easier and would include a lot less heartbreak I wanted of an explanation for the Two child max thing While it s not a hard concept to grasp It s obvious they can t have than two kids i just wanted to know what would happen if they had If they had one child but then had twins what would happen Would they need to put one into care or abort one while it was in the wombThe ending was uite confusing and rushedOverall the plot was good but lack of explanations slightly ruined it
