[ONLINE] ´ The Program AUTHOR Suzanne Young – pullanmaths.co.uk
Flawd iBook Not really It was mainly about the characters I DESPISE reading about helpless characters that just can t fight back I don t know It was always myssue with things Sweet Stallion in general I don t understand how you don t want to kill someone when they take your opportunities When they take your freedom away Especially when they tell you how to live your life It s just soAHHHH calm down Sandra Deep breaths If someone would hold me captive and force me to do things would fight until my very last breath I would unleash the freaking hell on earth I m so not even kidding guysThe characters were great Loved them Especially James He was so sweet funny caring and protective swoon Sloane was a pretty good protagonist herself But The County And The Kingdom i must admit was rather annoyed with her for being sometimes really naive and stupid Especially about crying every freaking time she was reminded of her past That was getting on my nerves I think what was the best about this book was the romance between James and Sloane It wasn t forced It wasn t fast Summer Heat! i mean they are already together at the beginning It was justperfect We get to see how they formed that relationship We get to see the flashback and absolutely loved those moments They are definitely the most beautiful realistic and sweetest couple EVERsight Overall The Program was a satisfying and captivating read It was heart wrenching frustrating to the point where Crushed Ice i wanted to shred the book to pieces and had beautifully written romance I would highly suggest this to patient and strong minded people If you have anger problems make sure you don t read this Also this book was so depressingt got me depressed Oooopps guess The Program will be coming for me Well I had a lot of ssues with this book but there were some good things so I don t think a 1 star was necessary It was very nearly that though IF YOU LOVE THIS BOOK YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT LOVE THIS REVIEW JUST PRIOR WARNINGBefore we go further Risking It All in this review let me just say this book and review will have some trigger warnings for suicide self harm depression Let s start with the positives The plot of the book was reallynteresting and the writing was alright I definitely sped through Dog Food 2 it because I wanted to know what happened The ending was reallynteresting as well and makes me curious about the rest of the books Santa In Montana (Calder Saga in the series It s fast paced and easy to read and get throughNOW FOR THE NEGATIVES The main plot of this books that suicide The Moonshiners Daughter is a contagious disease that The Programs trying to eradicate THIS IS WHERE MY ISSUES BEGIN Making suicidal thoughts and depression a disease to further the plot Emmas Orphans in a dystopian books something I am not okay with It trivializes Saints on Stage itn SO MANY WAYS And I am sure some misinformed people believe depression and suicidal tendencies are already contagious we don t need a fictional book to further that point YO EVERYONE DEPRESSION IS NOT CONTAGIOUS YOU DON T NEED TO AVOID PEOPLE THAT ARE DEPRESSED YOU CAN T CATCH IT FROM THEM At one point a character self harms and Fading Echoes (Warriors: Omen of the Stars, its described as a symptom and I just could not Suicide was a disease that started with the same signs and the same types of depression leading to the same result Mental childhood happy hours illnesses ARE diseases of the mind but they are not all the same nor are people the same under theirnfluences That was another ssue I had how depression was dealt with It was all portrayed the same way with the same symptoms n different peopleand depression Publish and Perish isn t the same for everyone It looks so different to so many peopleI am sure the author was trying to bring mentalllness nto the light since t s so often shunned and run from but I don t think a dystopian book was the Best Place To Do place to do At all To me t just made these Guide Through the Old Testament important mentalllnesses seem like a trivial thing and a plot device There are so many great ways to shed light on mental The Best-Case Scenario Handbook illness and this book did none of those thingsOther unrelatedssues there was some The Last Days of the Romanovs instalove and overall the characters were pretty not great I didn t love Sloane as a protagonist but I did like James a bit than everyone else I personally felt like this book made light of a lot of serious topics that should be talked aboutn the correct way to help people that suffer from them It s not edgy or "Cool Or A Disease " or a disease can be cured The Fate of the Romanovs in a certain spoilery way which I ALSO didn t agree with but didn t want to spoil I justreally was annoyed with this book And angry becauset could ve been so much betterchokengtitiktitikchokengs I am not a perfect person so Miss Julia Takes Over (Miss Julia, if I misrepresented something upn this review somewhere plz let me know respectfully and I will change LOSER it THANKYEW Reactions to The Program will differ I think based on which of these two scenarios you were expectingA a thought provoking treatment of teen suicide or B a typical dystopian that co opts yet another attention grabbing premise only to degeneratento the same evil government conspiracy keeping apart the star crossed lovers plotIf you thought B The Program Home-Ec 101 is a perfectly fine book Ignore this review and enjoy the book for whatt s "Personally though I thought A so my reaction went from ntrigued to somewhat disturbed

Suicide don t get me wrong a seriousssue of mental health but while I certainly don t expect every young adult book to handle The Billionaires Secretive Enchantress (The Berutelli Escape, it with the grace of say Karen Heal I ll make this uick and painless like Deathuik It s a cheesy gooey melodramatic love storyn the guise of a dystopian novel with a futuristic setting Shake, Rattle and Roll in which people are plagued with an epidemic that makes them want to go and kill themselves Don t bother with the whys because you won t get any Just go along with the story and the half absurdity oft

REVIEW ↠ PULLANMATHS.CO.UK Ö Suzanne Young,
Rt of the book was totally mindblowing It left me speechless so many times I loved how we were thrown straight nto the story All the time I felt like this would give me a heart attack This book wasis amazing I love Theres No Place Like D-Wing it and I love James Except for the epilogue I hate this type of epilogues two weeks later ten years later etc That was slightly disappointing However I have to say that I m very muchmpressed by this book Edit July 2014 Wow so much passion about this review over a year later While you can certainly feel free to leave comments on this review I don t see my opinion of the book changing The fact that the book Hatch Bright! is fiction does not change my opinion thatt s Heaven (Heaven Sent, irresponsible and unrealistic particularlyn a science fiction novel which Monster, Vol. 3: The Perfect Edition is supposed to be based on scientific fact to portray mentalllness n the way t Dancing With The Devil is shownn The ProgramBooks don t usually piss me off but then I don t usually read books as poorly researched offensive and misleading as The ProgramThe premise Tell Me Everything is that suicides claiming the lives of one Parental Guidance (Ice Knights, in three American teenagers an epidemic The government has developed a brainwashing program to remove the memories of teens they flag as suicide risks thinking thatf they remove the bad memories from someone s brain they will magically stop being depressed and stop wanting to kill themselvesNumber one this Die Zeit, die uns bleibt is some flawed science right here DECADES of research has shown that chemicalmbalances are what cause depression not bad memories or personal experiences There are people who have been through hell and back who don t have depression and people who have led positive lives who do I don t think the scientific community would suddenly throw all that research away and decide that brainwashing teenagers would be a good method of suicide prevention Decades of research have also shown that repressing your feelings doesn t get rid of depression either which Sloane and James seem to think t does Number two this seems to take place n the extremely near future as Claiming Cullen in maybe a couple years from the present Does Young seriously expect us to believe that NO ONE no governing body no organization no suicide awareness charities wouldntervene to try to stop this Program from development and mplementation That no uprising of mental health advocates would take place to protest this wildly nappropriate treatment of minor childrenNumber three you cannot catch depression and suicidal thoughts the way Young depicts Titanium Mike Saves the Day in this book You will not become suicidal by hanging out with suicidal people It might not be the most pleasant experience butt won t make you suicidal by association as The Daughters of Cain (Inspector Morse, ift were a virus I know that this San Angelo Showdown (Blood Bond, is a fiction book and that teens reading this book will be able to tell the difference between fantasy and reality But when dealing withssues like mental health which are ALREADY so misunderstood and stigmatized I consider If Looks Could Kill itrresponsible to paint depression and suicidal tendencies as contagious and something worth cutting ties with someone overThere were other problems I had with this book such as the codependency between Sloane and James being painted as romantic but the big ones above were enough to make me stop reading about halfway through Don t just don t collect this book This Elvis and the Blue Christmas Corpse is one of my new favorite books And I meant s a "TOP FAVORITE I CAN T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW MUCH "favorite I can t even explain how much love this book And I think a lot of my love for The Italian Kitten Meets The Russian Wolf (Giovanni Family, it could come from the fact thatt really hit home I ve never personally had depression but when I was Isabel (Families of Dorset in high school there was someonen my life who was really really Forbidden Ecstasy (Gray Eagle, important to me And I was right there during every second of his battle It was really devastating and something I don t like to remember very often but this book brought me right back to that I don t knowf I would have picked up this book Jesus if I knew thatt would but wow I m so glad that I did Reading about Sloane and James was like reliving my own memories and From the Highest Mountain it was really strange and bizarre and beautiful and overwhelming and terribly heartbreaking and I couldn t believe how much this book stole my heart 5 trillion stars I may or may not be ordering the seuel on my kindle right this second to divento Enchanted Heart it Heh After having some time to think made the overall conclusion that this book s the most frustrating and saddest book have ever read The Program Of Grave Concern (An Ophelia Wylde Paranormal Mystery, is setn a world where depression and suicide are considered a virus If you are thought to have caught the virus the handlers come to get you and take you to a facility known as The Program Little teaserI look back at James one last time and he gives me his signature smile wide and cocky But Darkness Avenged (Guardians of Eternity, it s not real Sometimes think Bound in Lingerie (Bare Naked Designs, it s never real Jamess the best at hiding the pain disguising the feelings He knows what Red Wine Technology it takes to stay out of The Program He ll keep as safe He promised Sloane knows not to cryn front of anyone One sign of sadness will land you straight Its Hotter In Hawaii (Men of Hawaii into The Program Her parents have already lost a child She knows that anyone who returns comes back with no emotions a blank slate Their depressions gone but so are their memories Under constant supervision and observation Sloane puts on a mask which she hides her feelings behind James Cataclysm is the only one she let sn She knows their love s strong enough to survive to withstand "anything But despise the promises t s getting harder to hide " But despise the promises Return To Me it s getting harder to hide truth Depressions setting Le Collectionneur in They re coming for them It s only a matter of time before there ll benothing left I have been crying my freaking eyes out since page 50 160 And then from there on have been so frustrated and angry that Snapped 2 i swear to God could freaking see red Having anger problemsissues t wasn t a good nor healthy dea for me to continue reading But Diana Ross i couldn t stop The writing style just pulls youn and you have so many compassion and feelings for the characters you just have HAVE to know what will happen to themHere are some examples of how looked I didn t get angry at the. Ts have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate Because their depression s gone but so are their memories Under constant surveillance at home and at school Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she ca.
