Editorial Reviews


“The story is incredibly compelling–an intriguing future with a classic tale of star-crossed lovers. Readers will be racing to find out the sequel's release date as soon as they finish the last page.” ―School Library Journal

“…romance fans will likely adore the star-crossed passionate romance, the heroic gestures, and the responsibility-be-damned happy ending that brings the protagonists back together.” ―BCCB

“The talented Zevin writes Anya and Win's high-wire romance as jolting for both the participants and readers.” ―Booklist, starred review

“…the achingly realistic romance between this latter-day Romeo and Juliet, told in Anya's earnest voice, will attract readers as surely as chocolate attracts…mobsters.” ―Horn Book Magazine

“In Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done, we fast-forward to 2083. Chocolate and coffee are contraband (can you imagine?!), paper and water are scarce, and New York is crawling with crime and poverty. But this is normal for sixteen-year-old Anya Balachine, daughter of the city's late crime boss. Until, that is, the chocolate her family manufactures accidentally poisons her ex and all fingers are pointed at her.” ―

“The love story's to die for, and the tangled web of relationships will keep readers intrigued to the last page.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Offering the excitement of a crime drama and the allure of forbidden romance, this introduction to a reluctant Godfather-in-the making will pique the interest of dystopia-hungry readers.” ―Publishers Weekly

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As soon as I read the synopsis, I wanted this book! I was drawn to the idea of a future world where chocolate and coffee (two of my favorite things!) were illegal and available only through a black market controlled by the mafiya (not a typo, that's how it's spelled in this book). Think of underground coffee bars as opium dens and chocolate bars bought and sold like bags of weed. A lot of other things are also regulated in this futuristic world: postage is paid on emails, paper is a rare luxury, water is so scarce that fountains and swimming pools have been empty for decades, there are no more resources to make clothing so everyone wears vintage hand-me-downs, and just about everything else is rationed.

Anya Ballanchine is technically a chocolate mafiya princess, though she has distanced herself from the family business. Both of her parents were killed in mob hits, and the only thing she cares about is keeping her brother and sister safe while caring for their ailing grandmother and staying under the radar of Child Protective Services. But she can't escape her family ties forever, and three things happen that land her squarely back in the family's sights: she unknowingly gives her ex-boyfriend a chocolate bar laced with poison, the family lures her mentally-impaired brother into the business, and Anya falls in love with the new Assistant District Attorney's son.

Though I really enjoyed this book, it ended up being nothing like what I expected. Even though it takes place in the future and chocolate is the impetus for a world of mafiya violence, it was never really made clear why chocolate (and coffee, for that matter) was deemed dangerous and made illegal in the first place.

Format: Hardcover
"All These Things I've Done" by Gabrielle Zevin, is about Anya, a 16 year old in the future,and is also the daughter of a deceased crime boss. Her dad was a crime boss because he runs a chocolate business, as chocolate is illegal. In this book, Anya will have to endure several life difficulties of a restricted world. It is restricted because there is a shortage of water (ie. regulating shower time, etc.), caffeine is illegal, taxes are high, crime is grand, and most is in ruins.

I think that kids would enjoy it because it is a book containing drama and some romance. It isn't too thick, but spread throughout the book.

My favorite parts were when Anya and Scarlet sent Leo to Japan to escape danger, and at the end of the book when most turns out well. I think this book is special because it shows us that we need to learn from our mistakes and we should listen to ourselves.

Girls from ages 14 to 18 who like drama would enjoy it.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By The Allure of Books on September 15, 2011
Format: Hardcover
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin is the first of (what I think) will be a trilogy. In this book, Gabrielle has established a story line and a group of characters it would be extremely difficult not to become invested in.

We are a few decades into the future - and chocolate and coffee are illegal. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view) for our MC, Anya, she was born into a crime family. She can binge on chocolate whenever she wants. Of course, downside: her father, the previous boss of the family, was murdered when she was younger. Now she feels in charge of her two siblings and ailing grandmother. Anya's older brother suffers from a mental disability and her younger sister still has constant nightmares about their father's murder. Needless to say: Anya has her hands full.

Of course, that was just the stress she was used to. Add in an ex-boyfriend who is seriously poisoned by a stash of chocolate she gave him and her strong attraction to a boy who just happens to be the son of the city's defense attorney and Anya's family starts to seem like the least of her problems.

I haven't read any of Gabrielle's other books, but her writing style and characterization seriously impressed me. Unfortunately, I still didn't feel as connected to the characters as I would have liked to be. Maybe it's because I had to way to relate to anything going on, because goodness knows that is certainly true (considering I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma versus a crime lord's den in New York City).

But, even though I never felt a deep chemistry or a real sense that I was getting to know the characters, I absolutely devoured the book and fully intend to continue the series.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
All These Things I've Done is about a 16 year old girl named Anya, whose family is in the illegal business of chocolate making. This is the story of her life, what happens when someone poisons the chocolate her family makes, and the repercussions of her starting to fall in love with a boy, whose father is the assistant D.A.

This book, like Eve by Anna Carey, had everything that I was wanting in a dystopian society. And on top of that, the premise of the society is SO unique. Caffeine is illegal, chocolate is too, paper (and consequently, books) is difficult to get a hold of - what could go wrong with such creative ideas? The answer? So many things.

My gripes may come from the fact that I listened to this on audiobook and so obviously if I were to have read the book, I could have interpreted Anya different. But I didn't read the book - I listened to it and let me tell you what - I think Anya is really..rude. I think she's TOO blunt. Is she the product of her environment? (read: mafia family Yeah, maybe - but still. I did not like her. She talked about her love for her siblings and though she does make a sacrifice at the end of the book for them, most of the time she talks to her older brother like he really is an idiot and is rude to her younger sister. I thought she was immature, paranoid, and just plain mean.

Then the plot dragged and dragged in the middle section of the book. There was no conflict and I wasn't scared or worried for Anya, especially considering how mean and cold-hearted she was. For a good section of the book, it was just her everyday life and it wasn't even exciting. Also, I swear, I think I would have smashed something if I had heard the word "birthright" one more time.

Needless to say, I was so sad that I didn't like this book because I went into it with really high hopes.

If you read this book, what did you think? Did you interpret Anya differently than I did from the audio?
