review The House of the Scorpion

The House of the Scorpion review ☆ 3 review The House of the Scorpion Du sollst mich nicht Mama nennen fuhr Celia Matt an Ich liebe dich mehr als alles andere auf der Welt vergiss das nie Aber du bist mir nur ausgeliehen worden mi vida Matt hatte Probleme damit das Wort ausgeliehen zu verstehen Es schien zu bedeuten d. A really hit and miss book with some terrific ideas and terrible plottingThe main character Matt is a clone of the world s biggest drug kingpin the 140 year old El Patron Matt lives in El Patron s sprawling estate and is hated by most of the residents there aside from his care taker Celia and El Patron himself who is raising Matt for his own sinister reasons Soon these reasons are revealed and Matt s only hope is to escapeThis felt like it should have been at least twice as long The author Nancy Farmer has developed an intriguing world extrapolating from the US and Mexico s current problems with drugs illegal immigration and pollution and also addresses ethical and legal issues around cloning However as compelling as this world is it never feels real or adeuately developed and she has a ridiculous habit of explaining important aspects of how the world she has created operates at just the time they become pertinent to the plot The characters are a mixed bag as well they re likable and believable except when they re not and turn from fully realized creations to cardboard cut outs whenever they have to do something that advances the storyThis isn t to say that I didn t like the book necessarily It was a great coming of age story and I think that young teenagers will really enjoy the characters and the action This book also won a whole mess of awards which admittedly may color my reaction to it I just wish that time had been spent developing the characters the world and the mess of ideas that were introduced

The House of the Scorpion review ☆ 3 review The House of the Scorpion Ass man für eine Weile etwas weggab Wer auch immer ihn Celia ausgeliehen hatte würde also irgendwann kommen und ihn wieder zurückverlangen Matt versteht Jahre später Er ist in der Zukunft geboren hinein in eine Welt die ihn verabscheut Denn Matt. As seen on The ReadventurerFlannery made me do it and I am pleased that she did I have no idea why I ve been avoiding The House of the Scorpion for so long Just look at its accolades National Book Award Winner Printz Honoree Newbery Honoree It practically has my name written on itBut is The House of the Scorpion worth such an overwhelming acclaim thoughI d say its first 215 pages and the last 20 are ebook editionThe first two thirds of the book are riveting This story is not just a clone story For some reason the majority of stories about clones focus on exactly the same things Yes it is horrifying in how it examines the familiar debate about a clone s humanity and soullessfulness Matt is a clone and is defined by people around him as livestock a source of body parts and not a human being How can he be human if he was grown in and harvested from a cow Nancy Farmer takes Matt s character on a journey of self discovery and self awareness that allows him to accept that he is not what he is told he is that he is as much of a human being as any person around him It is a compelling journey even though its sentiment isn t particularly new to me I ve read Never Let Me Go and watched The IslandBut thankfully there is to distinguish The House of the Scorpion from similar storiesFirst the novel is set in Mexico well a future version of it This country s life is written richly and authentically and never feels like just an exotic backdrop I am no expert on Mexican culture though so I might have felt that in awe of it as portrayed in The House of the Scorpion because of the narrator of the audio who infused Mexican flavor into the story most organicallySecond this is a story of a drug lord and his enslaved family El Patr n feels he is owed a few generations worth of life and he will stop at nothing to get what he thinks he is entitled to Cloning is a part of his plan for immortality It s in Matt s relationship with his master and owner where the story shines the most How would a clone feel about the person who is identical to him the source of his life Would he be able to hate him essentially hating himself If a clone s genetic make up is similar to that of a ruthless criminal does it mean that this clone is destined to follow the same path and become the same vicious person Or is there a way to break away from the prototype And how would a master feel about his own clone Would it be possible for him to treat this younger version of himself as an organ bank or there exists a connection that is closer than even that between a father and a child These uestions had my brain working and this part of the book was 5 star material for meBut then came the escape part in the last third of the book and I found myself struggling with it I was bored I didn t feel like those pages 3 months of Matt s life worth connected well thematically with the overreaching story arc I didn t think they were necessary I didn t think that a whole set of new characters including villains needed to be introduced so late in the story and I surely didn t think that anti socialist rants needed to come into play How did they relate to Matt s journey I thought those pages only occupied time with no real bearing on the rest of the novel To me those 80 pages could have been completely cut outThankfully the ending did save The House of the Scorpion It happens so infreuently in books but it did bring the story full circle to El Patr n and it was satisfying But that big chunk of the novel unfortunately made me much less willing to recommend it even though during the first part of the book I kept thinking this novel would be a great fit for fans of Unwind I might reread The House of the Scorpion in future but I ll be sure to skip over a big part of it

The House of the Scorpion review ☆ 3 review The House of the Scorpion Ist ein Klon In einer Gesellschaft die keine Skrupel kennt gerät er in ein gefährliches Netz aus Intrigen und Enttäuschungen Der Schauspieler Hans Löw spricht die preisgekrönte Geschichte von Nancy Farmer lebendig warm und mit dunkler Spannung. This book is great because1 It is a young adult book about I kid you not every social policy and ism you can think of drugs slavery cloning classism socialism EVERYTHING2 I read all 400 or something pages in a day3 The story is really uniue and I wasn t really sure what was going to happenAnyways it is basically the story of the clone of the biggest drug lord in a country solely made up of drug farms A few people on the book s goodreads page mentioned that the writing was not amazing but to tell the truth I never really noticed And I read A lot Some of the female characters are a little bit annoying but that won t stop me from recommending this book to most of my reader friends
