review Smoke AUTHOR Dan Vyleta

Smoke AUTHOR Dan Vyleta

Eir virtue and right to rule while the lower classes are drenched in sin and soot An England utterly strange and utterly real   An elite boarding school where the sons of the wealthy are groomed to take power as their birthright Teachers with mysterious ties to warring political factions at the highest levels of government  Three young people who learn everything they’ve been taught is a lie – knowledge that could cost them their lives A grand estate where secrets lurk in attic rooms and hidden laboratories A love trian. Smoke by Dan Vyleta was bloody marvelous From the first line in the bookThomas Thomas Wake up which did grab my attentionto the very last sentence of the book I m still smiling ear to ear but I m not dishing out this lineI had a BLAST OF FUN hanging out with the teenagers Charlie Thomas and Livia all of noble birth There is adventure dystopia adventure mystery rich vs the poor and young love There are political and moral overtones with the Tories liberals and Radicalsturning this novel into a thriller with villains and heroes but as to being fully certain who is evil and who is notwell that s uestionable depending on whose perspective you might be looking from In this worldthere is a physical manifestation of Smoke from your body and clothes if you tell a lieare sinfuland withhold secrets Yet there are degrees of sin Depending on which social class one belongs to The wealthy kids such as Thomas Charlie and Livia have been trained to control their emotions so their clothes look cleaner than people who come from povertywhere they are covered in soot It was fun that the candy sweets Beasley Son was a character in this novel the yummy irresistible treats These sweets are a part of the mystery they just might give Charlie and Thomas answers if they eat one Then again uestions may arise Is Smoke a diseaseor a cure Lots of symbolism in this novel When the mind is enlightened the spirt is free and the body matters notOma Desala from StargateSmoke represents the release of the soul or spirit from its visible and physical form and it s sublime ascent back to the invisible GREAT novelmaybe A seuel is coming It looks like it s possible Thank you Doubleday s first reads giveaway

Gle A desperate chase Revolutionaries and secret police Religious fanatics and coldhearted scientists Murder A London filled with danger and wonder A tortured relationship between a mother and a daughter and a mother and a son Unexpected villains and unexpected heroes Cool reason versus passion Rich versus poor Right versus wrong though which is which isn’t clear   This is the world of Smoke a narrative tour de force a tale of Dickensian intricacy and ferocious imaginative power richly atmospheric and intensely suspenseful. The concept of this book was very intriguing It deals with a world in which you literally start smoking when you sin In other words sin is very visible and at school you are taught to try and hide your sins It s exactly at a school that we meet our two main characters Thomas and Charlie Circumstances however lead them away from school one Christmas and that s where the story really takes off I really liked the two boys as well as this mysterious yet fascinating world I think that s why the beginning of the novel came off the strongest to me because it introduced me to both the world and the characters I also really liked how the story is predominantly told from the protagonists points of view but every second chapter is from the point of view of an outside person That really brought depth to the narrative and I was constantly looking forward to these short in between chapters However much I found this world fascinating though I started losing interest in the story towards the middle and it only got worse There wasn t any point where I was eager to get back to the book and continue reading especially when it started becoming of a middlegradeYA story That s why my rating ends at 3 stars because while I loved parts of this book I was also disappointed in some of it
