The Post-Unspoken World

Originally published at Sarah Rees Brennan. You can comment here or there.

My Big Idea, kindly hosted by John Scalzi
An interview in which I talk about the other worlds our imagination creates…
And a cool contest here with posters!

I decided to copy Seanan McGuire and compile a list of reviews. This is not comprehensive, but I tried to pick out reviews that mentioned different stuff!

A note to Sarah Rees Brennan: because you wrote this book I love so very, very much I will love you forever. HOWEVER…
There is nothing better than a smart, funny heroine who likes to solve mysteries.
Brennan does a truly wonderful job of exploring this unrealistic situation in a very real and frank way – presenting the pros and cons, the day-to-day realities, of being psychically connected to another human being
I love the plots, I love the slightly creepy style and the interwoven folklore. And most of all I love the characters. It’s so refreshing to read a story where the relationships are not all about boy meets girl, but female friendships and family as well..
Kami’s not all bold pronouncements and daring plans, however. Brennan uses her to explore beauty, and how it impacts women’s relationships with each other
‘Longtime SRB fans are setup to like her newest offering, and I’m not surprised that I fell into that camp’, plus links to other reviews
No matter how hard I tried to predict the direction this book would take, I couldn’t.
Sarah Rees Brennan’s Unspoken is unequivocally one of the best young adult novels I’ve ever read.

I am also, as you can see, doing a blog tour you can follow along with. I wrote lots of essays!

Creating A Fictional Town
Well, this one is embarrassing, but hey, I wrote a huge romantic essay and always valuable to have different POVs!
Inspirations and Influences on the Book Smugglers

I thought this would be a NICE SELECTION to start with! I am of course, always attentively waiting for your thinkings. ;)

This is a good place to start! It would be even better with my review: http://inbedwithbooks.blogspot.com/2012/09/review-unspoken.html

I bought the book on Kindle yesterday and read it in one sitting! I really enjoyed it, especially Kami's relationship with Holly and Angela. And I'm a sucker for books with imaginary-voices-that-turn-out-to-be-real (though the only other one I can think of right now is Hexwood, but anyway there should be more!).

My lovely editor went straight to Hexwood, too. ;) Diana Wynne Jones lovers unite!

As soon as I can figure out how to make this blasted piece of tech of mine work, Unspoken shall have the auspicious status of being the first Kindle book I shall ever buy! I anticipate gorging myself upon it tonight. Loved your previous books, can't wait for this; the sample you posted up months ago just had me clawing for more.

Downloaded it this morning and read in one sitting. I really enjoyed it - reminded me of both Touch Not the Cat and Fire and Hemlock. Really looking forward to the sequels!

I've just got to the bit in Unspoken where the group of them are investigating in the guesthouse, I just want to tell you that I am so delighted that a version of Miles' rules about doors in dungeons/castles is in force here! You rock!

I wanted Unspoken so much I bought it twice: I've ordered it from my local games-and-comics-and-sf-and-fantasy-shop, which is really slow in getting new books, because I'm a grown woman who can do this thing called "patience" for a few weeks, except it turned out I couldn't wait after all, so I bought it as ebook as well. I really, really liked it - thanks so much for writing fun and exiting and heartbreaking stories!
