The setting for this story is a future world where being a mind reader is the expected path for everyone, and when 16 year old Kira still has not gone through the change she believes she is a zero, one of the rare people unable to hear thoughts or be read, but everything changes the day her best friend Raf tries to kiss her and she knocks him unconscious and Simon ( a boy at school) tells her the truth.....she is a mingjacker, sounds good right? well you would be right. I read the summary for this and to be honest I was not sure what I expected, and as I started reading I was thinking a lot about the Darkest Minds and yes it reminded me of it but there were also a lot of differences and this book held it's own and I enjoyed it all the same.
The fact that this book is about mind reading/control means a lot of telepathic conversations and some interesting descriptions and ideas about being in someones mind and I liked the way the author went about it, cause in my opinion it can sometimes be weird and not really make sense, but this was not like that. If you liked The Darkest Minds or if you enjoy dystopians then I suggest you read this book I think you will be happy you did.Read more ›
My Rating: 4.5/5 stars
YA Dystopians have become my favorite genre over the past year. There really aren't too many I haven't read yet, although there are a few. I'm not sure why I didn't read this one sooner, I am kind of kicking myself right now! This was a thrilling, couldn't-put-it-down kind of read!
The story is a dual POV between Adele and Tristan. Adele is in prison through no crimes of her own. The society is set up like a caste system, and Adele's class, The Moon Dwellers, is considered middle class. Although now she has no rights at all, and is in prison for life. Tristan is royalty, and at the other end of the spectrum. He belongs to the Sun Dwellers, the richest souls in their society. The Sun Dwellers control everything, and take away more and more from the Moon Dwellers and the Star Dwellers (lowest class) every year. The castes are even separated geographically. Everything is underground, after a global destructive event up above the earth.
The story starts off where Tristan is in a parade of some sorts in the Moon Dwellers districts. Adele sees him from the prison yard, and he, her. The both experience an extreme sort of head pain when they lock eyes. Tristan decides he must go back and find out about this girl. He basically runs away to go find her, against his father's wishes. So he sets off with his best friend and servant, Roc.
Adele, meanwhile, has befriended 2 prisoners by the names of Cole and Tawni, and they make a prison break. At the same time they are escaping, the Star Dwellers, who are upset with their lot in life, has declared war on the Moon Dwellers, and is bombing the heck out of their districts.Read more ›
So what if you can read thoughts. It’s better to be a mindjacker in Susan Kaye Quinn’s Open Minds.
Kira Moore has a problem, since she can’t read minds like everyone else. She’s such a likeable character, and I enjoyed her growth from zero to hero. Raf is the smart and adorable boy-next-door type. It’s no wonder Kira has a crush on him. Each character has a place in this novel, but Kira and Raf are my favorite.
The dangers of Kira’s newfound abilities to mindjack people amp up the tension and increase the pace. I didn’t want to put this book down and purchased books two and three as well as the collection of novelettes as soon as I finished Open Minds. Quinn’s style is easy to fall into and be transported to a world of mindreaders, mindjackers, and zeros.
If you’re looking for fast-paced and edgy YA, you can’t go wrong with Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
