    One thought on “Bomb”

    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hachette Children's Books and NetGalley.)“Life is a string: you just don’t know how long it is.”This was a story about a girl strapped to a bomb, with an untraditional ending.I felt quite sorry for Genesis, waking up strapped to a bomb and having no idea where you are, must have been incredibly scary, and she was brave to do what she did to try and save herself, and save the people the bomb was in [...]

    2. In Bomb, Mussi presents us with a world in which an ISIS-like cult is sweeping the globe, with celebrities and teens announcing their involvement in the Brightness Brotherhood with pride. With bleached hair, tattoos of flames up their arms, and slogans on their shirts about death, martyrdom, and rebellion.The end time is here. Have you converted yet? We radicalize your sons. We sacrifice your daughters.We can get you. Anytime. Anywhere.This cult has become so popular that even the kids who aren [...]

    3. The concept of this book is really strange and different, which is exactly what I look for in a book. However, the annoying main character and choppy writing made this book fall flat for me. I was really annoyed with Genesis for most of the book because she was such a love sick teenage girl. I felt like she was written in a weird way because I felt she was everything that teenage girls are stereotyped to be. I wasn't expecting her to be an amazing character but I wish she was written differently [...]

    4. Wellh, is basically the accumulation of my intelligent thoughts. NAH. Just kidding. I have a mega-ton of intelligent(er?) thoughts to bestow upon yous you're so lucky. I've read Riot by this author and, well, I'm beginning to think I'm NOT a Mussi fan. I tried! Twice! But no. I find the characters super irritating and the plots super unbelievable. The premise is quite scary and unique. Genesis (with her conveniently religious name) gets kidnapped on a blind date and strapped to a bomb by some re [...]

    5. 2.5 starsBomb has an extremely interesting premise but it didn’t live up to my expectations.Genesis goes on a date with a guy she met online and wakes up the next morning with a bomb strapped to her. An earpiece has been glued to her ear and she is given instructions on where to go whilst being threatened with the bomb around her torso.We find out that an extremist group is to blame for kidnapping her and making her an unwilling agent of mass destruction. It’s very relevant to today’s soci [...]

    6. (I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review.)Actual rating - 2.5Genesis was an okay character, and I felt sorry for the situation she was in, but I didn't love her.This wasn't an awful read, but it couldn't keep my interest, and after a bit it seemed to really drag. Overall, Not awful, but I didn't really enjoy it.

    7. I received a copy of Bomb in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to Hodder Childrens Books and Netgalley.The last couple of books I’ve read have been sadly lacking in action and have left me worrying that I was about to hit a reading slump, so it was with trepidation that I picked up Bomb.By the time I’d finished the first chapter, however, I realised that my fears had come to nothing. I don’t put gifs in my reviews, mainly because I haven’t figured out how to, but if I did use gi [...]

    8. I was quite the black sheep when I read Riot by Sarah Mussi last year, and it's safe to say, there are many people that just can't take her books. I, thankfully, am not one of those people, and although I've only read Riot, and now Bomb, checking out more of her work is a big must for me. Bomb reminded me what it is I like about Mussi's novels - her realistic approach to subjects that other authors wouldn't dare cover, her action packed story-lines and her characters I always end up emotionally [...]

    9. Rating: 2.5 out of 5 starsI received this book on a read to review basis, but this in no way affected my opinion. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read this.When I first heard about Bomb, i was really intrigued by the premise of a girl who becomes a weapon of mass destruction and has to follow certain instructions from an unknown source. However, I'm disappointed to say that the book fell way short of my expectations. While the main premise of the book was g [...]

    10. Thanks to Hachette (Hodder) Children's Books for this review copy!While the cover appealed to me--with the birds bursting out of the girl's chest, the story itself did nothing to captivate me. From the very beginning, the story struggled. It was an amazing idea with poor execution. I was bored almost immediately. I really hate to say it but I was bored, with a capital B. This story dragged page after page. It was a real struggle to get through. What should have taken me a day or two to read, too [...]

    11. Stopped at 5% I have done this several times on my blog. Books that just don't work for me. I know my reading style pretty well, and I can tell whether I will like the book or not accurately about 80-90% of the time. If I finish a book, then there are aspects of that book that I enjoyed. I never talk about the author in a negative way, I only say what doesn't work for me. Normally if I finish a book, I give it at least 3 stars, meaning that I liked it.I wanted to read Bomb because I haven't hear [...]

    12. ARC for review. The positives: great opening scene and, overall, a good way to show young adults how a group like ISIS might take hold in the west, as well as what might lead young people to join - so if this is a topic in which your favorite young adult is interested it addresses the issues. The negatives: this is definitely YA for the YA set. Unrealistic love, crazy scenarios where all the right people have the right skill sets in unrealistic locations at just the right moment. Many people die [...]

    13. I received a free digital copy from the author/publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest feedback.Genesis Wainwright can't remember last night. She can remember the guy she had a blind date with, she can remember feeling that she didn't really like him. But she can't remember the point when, somehow, she ended up with a bomb strapped to her chest. Bomb tells the story of a day in the life of Genesis, except it's not a normal day. Sudden;y genesis is in a life or death situation. She can [...]

    14. The novel Bomb by Sarah Mussi is definitely one to keep you at the edge of your seat with the suspense. It has a lot to do with terrorism and is very similar to the ISIS news we are hearing about. Introducing the teens into the current events without the drag of the news.The Brightness is an extremist cult group, its a branch off of a religion which we dont come to find out. They have troubled people join them and commit to terrible acts of violence against other humans, even the ones they love. [...]

    15. This book was alright. It was kind of hard to get through. Full review to come.Updated June 28, 2015 **Thank you to Hodder Children's Books for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**As soon as I saw this book on Netgalley, I had the urge to read it and download it because it just sounded so incredibly amazing and one-of-a-kind. I mean, this poor girl wakes up with a vest full of explosives stuck to her chest that she can't take off. She's alone and there's a voice that is c [...]

    16. I'm not going to lie - I didn't expect to love this book the way I did.This story is ridiculously simple. Genesis wakes up in a dark basement, and she quickly learns she has a suicide bomb strapped to her body. She quickly deduces it's related to her boyfriend who has become aligned with a radical Islamic sect. She also has a bluetooth earpiece in her ear, and the voice in her ear is giving her a lot of directions. She knows her time is limited, and she doesn't really know what to do.It's a real [...]

    17. DNF 34% - Review copy provided by Hachette for an honest review.I hate to do this. I hate to have to give up on this book. Its making me break my goal for this year - to read all review copies and not DNF any of them - which is annoying me but I literally cannot do it anymore. This book wasn't just terribly executed, it was horrendously executed. It made me want to tear my hair out with frustration. There has never been a book so tedious, so boring, so dry and silly and ridiculous and dumb. The [...]

    18. I wavered between a 4 and a 5 on this book. It's difficult to rate a book like Bomb because of its extreme subject. The writer made interesting choices, and although I found some of them to be heavy-handed, they ultimately worked. The main character's voice pulled me into the story and I read without stopping. Bomb begins with a quote from Macbeth and an excerpt from an article about extreme violence and the treatment of women and girls. The first section of the book is called Last Night and des [...]

    19. I LOVED THIS BOOK! Sarah Mussi will be a new favourite author if Bomb is indicative of her style. It's a must-read in the current climate. Carefully woven together are the very real experiences of both the victims and perpetrators of suicide bombings. I particularly appreciated the maturity (realism) of the ending. I'd like to see schools study this book, and particularly discuss the chapter headings, which I feel, make it a controversial, divisive read. I'm looking forward to reading her other [...]

    20. I really great concept marred only by how freaking obsessed Gen was with Naz. Liked the ambiguous ending (although my money is on Dave living up to his reputation). In light of Isis and recent events, this book is frighteningly realistic. Parts of it felt clunky, and I was frustrated by how slowly the characters worked some information out. Also, if you date a guy and he shoots a swan, he is not a keeper.

    21. Gutsy book! This is a great book even if it is close to the harsh reality of some.This is a story about a teenage girl who after being dumped by a boy who got sucked into one of those religious zealot groups finds herself in a suicide vest with a communication device glued into her ear and a voice ordering her to destinations across London and the outskirts.But she won't be a puppet and with some help she tries to work out a way to fight back.Time runs down, the anti-terrorism unit is on her bac [...]

    22. I was really enjoying this book. And then I read the ending. I was so angry. The books great the ending still winds me up.

    23. **I've received free eBook copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review***When i started reading this book, i was in a reading slump and i was a bit scared that i will not finish it. But when i started i realized that all fears were for nothing. There was something in the story and writing style that kept me turning the pages. Bomb is a book about girl Genesis who decides to go on blind date to get over her ex boyfriend Naz who dumped her for no good reason ( at least that is what she sa [...]

    24. I’m giving “Bomb” by Sarah Mussi a well-deserved 4’5 “what-a-thrilling-story” stars.A few days ago I discovered this website called NetGalley, maybe some of you guys already know about it. I found out today that you actually need to request most books you want to read and it turns out if you are not from an English-speaking country you’re quite screwed. Still, the very first day I was looking through the website this book caught my attention, and it was available as a “Read Now [...]

    25. Despite the intriguing concept, as summarised in the blurb: this book can only be described as one of the biggest blunders in modern literature. The author failed to make use of some of the most simple techniques, including variation of sentence structure to create effect (a technique which most highschoolers are familiar with). If we over-look the neglection of the most-basic literary practices, we are still presented with a disappointing, monotonic plot: where the entire story-line becomes fru [...]

    26. For this and more reviews, visit my blog, The Reality of Books: therealityofbooks.wordpress.cI came across Bomb as a “free to read” book on Netgalley. Because it didn’t require a request process, I was worried I wouldn’t like it. I was, however, surprised. There are some obvious shortcomings, but overall, the book was a good read. Bomb starts off right in the action with our protagonist, Genesis. Genesis wakes up on the floor in a strange room with a plastic ear piece super glued into he [...]

    27. (2.5 stars)Bomb begins with Genesis waking up, dark and cold, unaware of what's happening. The first few pages simply involve her inner narrative as she tries to figure out what's happening. Once upon a time, this is the kind of writing style I would have liked. Short, sweet, and to the point. Easy to read because you don't get bogged down by complicated words and imagery that takes a second to catch up to. Unfortunately, it appears I'm much more fond of lengthy prose these days. The number one [...]

    28. Review also at Pinker Than Fiction Reviews.Bomb is an edge of your seat thrill that will terrify and blow your mind.No pun intended.Seriously, I was on tenterhooks the whole time reading this book. The tension is through the roof. From beginning to end the novel is action packed, moving at a pace that keeps you aware, always, that the MC, Genesis, has a bomb strapped to her. I think the scariest thing about Bomb is the possibility of it being reality. Set in a near future, a terrorist group has [...]

    29. This review was originally posted on Fables LibraryI received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Are you prepared for a thrilling ride? Do you want a book that you just can't walk away from? Seriously, Bomb is explosive. Pun intended.Reading the summary I knew that this book was for me, it sounded intense, action packed and one wild ride I was ready for. This is what I got and more.The sentence structure of the whole story consisted of quick, snappy sentences that added to the [...]

    30. Bomb awakened my interest because it had unique concept. A girl strapped in a bomb, a walking bomb who's under the mercy of cult, a terrorist cell? Count me in! What's even better: Bomb delivered everything it promised. It's action packed story with intriguing premise, concept and complex characters. The plot is solid, good, and you can't even guess what comes next as Mussi plays both her characters and her readers.Firstly I have to praise Mussi's writing style and the execution of the book desi [...]
