    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 t

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. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Random House Childrens Publishers UK and Netgalley19 year old Corin lives in a society where everyone has a name on the skin on the inside of their forearm This name is the name of their soul mate and they must find this person and marry them The name must always be kept covered though and you re not supposed to show it or discuss it with anyoneCorin still hasn t found her soul mate but she s not really bothered by this it seems whilst her sister is constantly being admitted to the psych ward over an incident to do with her soul mate s nameThen a boy called Colton starts to show an interest in Corin and they become friendsIs Colton the name on Corin s wrist What happened to her sister And will Corin ever find where she belongsThis was an okay story but there were loads of plot holes and I got bored which was really disappointing cause I was really looking forward to this bookCorin was a character that was difficult to really connect with She dated boys with a certain name to fool people into thinking that that was the name on her wrist She claimed not to have a problem with the whole soul mate thing and was really shocked when she learned that two people who she knew who were married weren t really soul mates but then at other times totally disparaged the whole thing I really wished that even if she couldn t tell anyone the reader could have had of a clue as to her direction as she was so hot and cold that just started to annoy meThe storyline in this sounded good on paper but in practice I just didn t buy it Girls always gossip and chat and talk about who they like and who they think they re going to marry etc and it seemed totally unbelievable that people wouldn t share the name on their wrist with their best friend or their sister or someone I mean I would have totally told my best friend without a shadow of a doubt so I found this uite difficult to swallowThen there were other issues for example if you only date people called Dan then it would be pretty obvious that that was the name on your wrist In practice I don t think you d be able to keep it uiet for long Then there was the marriage issue why make it illegal to marry someone who isn t your soul mate yet not make people show the names on their wrists when they get married Wouldn t that be an easy way to police people marrying illegally Why do you still wear your name guard after you re married Wouldn t it be better to just show the name when you re obviously married to the personAnd there were little things like this that just left big plot holes in my opinion Including a database that listed how many people there were with each name and how long it would take to find a soul mate wouldn t they just use this to find each other So much easier And why do the names only have a first name Wouldn t a full name have been a lot easier Why doesn t the government aid you in your search if you re only allowed to marry your soul mate Why should you assume that your soul mate lives in the same place as you or is the same age as you or speaks the same language as you or is even heterosexualThen there was the ending I m still not 100% sure exactly what happened but by that point I was seriously annoyed and bored and I do know that I didn t like it Corin basically took the easy way out and annoyed me to no end I really wasn t impressed and it totally cemented how much I didn t enjoy this bookOverall too many plot holes and annoying in places45 out of 10

SUMMARY The Name On Your Wrist

The Name On Your Wrist

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 met Helen last year at the Sony Young Movellist award ceremony because she won and we were lucky enough to bump into each other while she was having some very swishy meetings and I was at work experience at Movellas H I couldn t wait to get my teeth into her book but somehow I never got around to reading it until this week and I was so glad that I finally got around to it I think this is going to be my top read through 2014 The blurb immediately fascinated me Ever since I was younger and was surrounded my Disney movies where the princess had one true love and was destined to marry him I have been interested in the idea of soul mates and fate One thing that Helen s book did was separate the romance from the idea of a soul mate I had always failed to see the negative side to the whole fiasco one that involved suicide heartbreak and government intervention to the highest degree There was an inescapable sense of helplessness throughout the story as I realised that Corin knew how her future was going to turn out and had long ago accepted that there was nothing she could do to change it Whenever I read dystopian fiction there is always a sense of dread lingering in the pit of my stomach as I come to experience a world in which society seems to be going backwards The oppressive government has returned Individual freedom has been snatched away There are dangers lurking in almost every decision you make in life decisions that can make or break you in Corin s case the decision she has to make in The Name on Your Wrist is most likely to break her Helen makes it abundantly clear in the book that the idea of soul mates isn t what is usually presented in romantic literature but something much darker Corin is a complex character someone who I had mixed feelings about in the beginning but grew to love her because of her witty mind courageous nature and her hope for something better The uniue thing about Corin is that she sees an alternative at least that was what I had gathered from the book By setting out on a mission to deceive the world around her telling everyone that the name of her carpinomen is Thomas Corin is breaking away from the encouraged image of a teenage girl and therefore fighting the inevitability of her future that hangs over her like an omen Corin s rebellion suggests to the reader a small beacon of hope which carries on for the entirety of the bookHelen carefully crafts characters so that the way they react with the protagonist makes for an entirely riveting read Right from the beginning when we are introduced to the third Tom I knew that the characters I would be introduced to throughout the story would reveal to me the reason why Helen is such a successful writer By avoiding the classic mistake of YA fiction uselessly inventing characters to make the story interesting Helen used the strength of her protagonist to bounce off her other characters and reinforce the excellence of her story Hidden within a dystopian Helen also infuses many other issues and important uestions into the book Suicide depression self harm and uestioning of identity come into play continuously not only elevating the novel itself but making it current for teenage readers and adults alikeThe ending although unbearably cruel for an addictive reader for myself as it ended on too big a cliffhanger was perfect in it s own way and really drew together the main point of the story that Helen was trying to bring out Sometimes it s not about who you think you love or rebelling against the system just because Family loyalty and your own identity is often the way to start to put things rightI have been given confirmation from Helen that she is working on a seuel so hopefully we won t be kept in suspense for long


Sed to be withBut what if you never find that person Or you do but you just don't love them What if you fall for someone else someone other than the name on your wristAnd what if like Corin the last thing in the world you want is to be foundThe gripping debut novel from the winner of the inaugural Sony Young Movellist Awar. Once an avid reader in recent years I have fallen out of the loop with up and coming authors instead preferring to stick to my favourite authors until now that isSitting down after a particularly tiring shift at work I wanted nothing than to read for half an hour then sleep However once I had started this book I could not put it down And roughly three hours later with no breaks not even toilet breaks I have finished it and am thirsty for The Name Upon Your Wrist is fresh and new whilst giving the reader an almost nostalgic feel for the characters almost as though they are an old friend or a cousin one has lost touch with For that is clearly Hiorn s strong point she writes in such a way that the reader feels as though they are not merely a spectator instead that they are part of the book living and breathing with the charactersInitially the protagonist Corin seems nothing than a moody teenage girl trying to rebel against everything life throws at her However as the novel progresses many layers of her character are cleverly revealed making the reader root for her to make the right decision regarding her carpinomen Alongside the character progression the plot twists are near enough impossible to guess a rarity in books these daysThe uestions regarding morality and love that this novel raises have definitely got me thinking and after all isn t that the sign of a good book One that leaves you thinking about it for days if not weeks after And The Name On Your Wrist will certainly do thatIf I were to describe this book in one sentence it would be thisThought provoking intelligent and most importantly an absolute pleasure to read
