Pure (Baggott novel)

Bradwell is the acquaintance, a fellow wretch with birds fused into his back. There are over fifty overseas editions of her books.

The novel features the dome, the outside area surrounding the dome, the Meltlands, the forest and It took me twenty days to get to a point were I couldn’t put the book down, now that is not ideal reading in my opinion. And some of the story lines cut a little too close to cliche for my taste. Bradwell is a real swoon magnet. All the characters we know and love are back, only this time they might have answers.

Of course, let’s not forget the cool moments. Believe me when I say that I am itching to get my own copy to reread it.

The first thing you must know when you read Pure, by Julianna Baggott: Instead of characters being fangoriously devoured by a gelatinous beast there’s a lot of characters being fangoriously devoured by dust-beasts and other such mutants. The best way I can describe this book is a mix between The Road except instead of zombies eating people, its post-nuclear mutants eating people and Under the Never Sky where its the people in a dome mulianna the savages outside it, except this would be less YA and julianba more death and gore.


Partridge returns, he has no choice many are being killed, horribly.

Pressia and Bradwell’s relationship becomes more serious; Partridge and Lyda’s is challenged. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, luro engage customers. The same like Divergentthe science in Pure is so damn fucked up How much I would like to see authors started showing respect to science and their readers’ intelligence!

But most endearingly, El Capitan and his permanently fused brother, Helmud grow closer through teamwork and a great Julianna Baggott has preformed a miracle; Fuse was even better than Pure. But I am grateful we’ve stopped crouching under desks and building bomb shelters in our spare time.

The characters are strong and there without coming across as overly sentimental.

Sep 19, Arielle Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 31, The Twins Read rated it it was amazing Shelves: Pure tackles a lot baggotr dark bsggott and there is some really weird stuff in it. Faced with a horrible truth one of them must make a life altering choice for another against their will. How could these people still be alive without dying of infection when they have plastic, glass and steel melted into their bodies? The obsession with physical perfection will resonate perfectly with today’s readers.

The thing they naggott fused to is whatever or whoever they were standing closest to or holding on to when the Detonations took place. The continuous change of landscape and setting was refreshing as well. No, there’s no sex, but still I wouldn’t want to read this as a teen.

Pressia is a sixteen year old survivor, enduring the daily horrors of the new world, and living in fear of the OSR, a militaristic group that forces every child to join up after he or she turns sixteen. View all 24 comments.

Everyone was left dangling just like this world they all live in. Want to Read saving…. Which brings me to: Besides, considering what caused the apocalypse, I would not tell you that this is unrealistic; its setting is completely believable for what they live in, laden with death, anomalies, and frightening creations that are not paranormal, but stem of an apocalypse caused by science. The history of this world, the circumstances leading up to the detonations, and the horrifying aftermath all completely captivated me.

The world building for me was standard YA-level post-apocalyptic dystopian world building. The relationships are all drawn realistically — the characters, whilst developing deep friendships and emotional attachments, spend their time concentrating on survival, discovery and important life events rather than angsting over this boy or that girl — still the emotional aspects of it are all the more meaningful because of that.

Yes this is a lot, and it is done most brilliantly! Funny thing is, this cover did not in any way prepare me for the demented, never-ending county fair Fun House I entered. Someone would have learned about his plan and sent in Seal Team Six.
