    One thought on “Ultraviolet

    1. Wendy Darling on said:

      Oh This is so cool.That was my reaction late last night when I finished this book and the feeling hasn t worn off Ultraviolet is one of those sneaky books that makes you think you re reading one thing and then all the sudden, whoosh, you re off on a different adventure I think many of us who spend a lot of time in the paranormal genre have come to expect a certain story structure from these types of books, but this one has no problem bending all the rules and leaping out to explore other dimensi [...]

      tommy has been telling me about A Mango Shaped Space for a long time now, and after reading this, i both want to read that book and also to have synesthesia myself, please it s like having a superpower that doesn t require you, morally, to go out and save the world it is like being on a mild acid trip all the time, without any of the accompanying backaches and food aversion.of course, in this book, her synesthesia is compounded with other special gifts which both complicate her life and also gi [...]

    3. R.J. on said:

      I ve written a lot of stories, but ULTRAVIOLET is one of the very closest to my heart It was also one of the hardest and most demanding things I ve ever written, but thanks to the help of numerous smart critique partners, a tirelessly supportive agent and two wonderful editors, I can look at it now and say, Yes There it is THAT is what I meant I love this book very much, and I hope you will too.

    4. Emily May on said:

      3 1 2 starsI know a whole bunch of my GR friends have heard me say this before but I m going to say it again for the benefit of any newcomers who stumble across this review because rating a book can be a tricky process and three stars can mean anything from I was totally unmoved by it to it was pretty good for the most part , I tend to take the GR system literally By this I mean that three stars is I liked it and is a mostly positive rating Therefore, Ultraviolet hovers somewhere halfway between [...]

    5. Flannery on said:

      Ultraviolet is a genre bender, there s no doubt about it, and I don t think I ve been this surprised about the direction a book took in quite some time What I find particularly intriguing is the fact that all of us who ve read it seem equally stumped as to how to write a review of a book whilst still leaving out half of the plot so as to preserve the experience for other readers talk about a mighty task When I originally wrote a placeholder for this review, it basically just said that I wish I c [...]

    6. Sh3lly ☽ Guardian of Beautiful Squids and Lonely Moons ☽ on said:

      This one ended up being quite good The pacing was a bit uneven in the first half, but I quite enjoyed the second part Alison is 17 and has synesthesia She senses things in different ways For example, sounds and letters have colors and she can tell when people are lying because they give off colors and she can taste it It s a phenomenon that has led to her being insecure, leading an isolated life, and having a strained relationship with her parents She ends up at a mental hospital following a vio [...]

    7. Maja (The Nocturnal Library) on said:

      I m always a little hesitant to review the books I loved It seems like nothing I write can ever be good enough That s exactly the case this time I ll try to keep it short and very clear this book blew me away It took only about 30 pages for me to fall in love with Ultraviolet If I remember correctly, I called Anderson s writing unpretentious and rich with emotion when I just started reading, and I stand by my words now that I ve finished What amazed me the most about it was the way she occasiona [...]

    8. Blythe on said:

      This book and I are eloping It s settled and there s nothing you can do to stop it No, seriously We ve planned the eloping and everything Go find another book to elope with Ultraviolet is mine Forever and ever But not in a creepy way, or anything like that awkward laugh It s been three days still I finished Ultraviolet, and I still cannot think coherently Honestly, it s a miracle I can form full sentences at this point If my incoherency, eloping, or rating weren t a clear indication, I love this [...]

    9. Elle on said:

      In the interest of staying fair to R.J.Anderson I will make it clear that Ultraviolet is a five star book Or, at least the first 230ish pages are from a five star book and the remaining few chapters belong in WTF Capital City But on that later.Initially, be prepared to be sucked in to the weaving vortex that is Ultraviolet From the get go we are presented with a puzzle the likes of which I have not experienced in a long time There s nothing worse than when a mystery isn t, you know, mysterious [...]

    10. Steph Sinclair on said:

      Ultraviolet was such a pleasant surprise I ve been thinking about this review for a few days because it s hard to say something about it without giving too much away It s one of those books that you just have to go in knowing absolutely nothing So, I will try my best to keep this short and sweet Ultraviolet is about a girl named Alison who ends up in a mental institute after she has a psychotic break, during which she confesses to murdering a fellow classmate What makes this book so cool is that [...]

    11. AH on said:

      Awesome Ultraviolet is so incredibly original It was an absolute pleasure to read The writing is well crafted, elegant, colorful, and beautifully descriptive It has a captivating quality and I was hooked right from the start Ultraviolet is the story of a very special teenage girl Alison finds herself in a psychiatric hospital ward She believes that she caused a classmate to disintegrate When the classmate goes missing, Alison confesses to the murder even though no body has been found Alison has [...]

    12. Jim on said:

      I have tried to avoid spoilers If you have read the book, you know how difficult that can be in this case If you haven t, you might be well advised to just check it out first, and come back to the reviews later I REALLY liked it, and will try to walk the tightrope of discussing it without giving it away There is a key moment very early in this book a flashback to Alison at age 6 She is watching her mom washing dishes, and seeing a trail of gold stars when the cutlery clinks This visual sensation [...]

    13. Crowinator on said:

      I love me an unreliable narrator, particularly when you can t identify what kind of unreliable he or she is Is he sincere in his beliefs but crazy Is she a pathological liar Is he a con man intentionally deceiving his audience Is she just out of the loop, a narrator who thinks she knows what s going on but is actually being tricked by others I stayed up until almost midnight to finish this in a marathon reading session, and I found it an incredibly addictive genre bender.Alison is set up as susp [...]

    14. Reynje on said:

      I have fallen a little in love with this book, and honestly, I could not be surprised.I picked up and put down Ultraviolet countless times mostly because I have a Bowerbird esque tendency to be drawn to shiny, coloured things , convinced that I had no intention of looking beyond the metallic cover and actually reading it But after coming across positive review after positive review, on a whim cough book buying frenzy cough I bought it.Much has been made of the need to approach Ultraviolet unspo [...]

      Sixteen, almost seventeen, year old Alison wakes up in a psych ward after a mental breakdown during which she claimed over and over again she killed one of the most popular girls in her high school From page one, Alison attempts to convince herself that her break with reality was a temporary thing, even though she grew up believing she might be insane Alison has always experienced synthesia although she knows nothing about it beyond her personal experiences Her mother thinks she s schizophrenic [...]

    16. Catie on said:

      3 1 2 starsRaise your hand if you ve ever read a passage like this in a young adult novel Comet trails of indigo and violet streaked through my inner vision, and electricity sparked all over my skin Our breaths mingled, quick and shallow, while my lips melted open and the blood pounded through me in a pleasure so intense it was only a shade away from pain Now raise your hand if you ve ever given yourself eye strain from frequent eye rolling at passages like that Guess who has two hands raised ri [...]

    17. Scarlet on said:

      The good thing Misleading blurb alert Ultraviolet is much than a murder mystery.The bad thing It still bored me to death _ Before I justify my unpopular opinion, I have a confession to make I was never really interested in Ultraviolet Reading this book was an act of desperation I badly needed a break from Picoult s super sentimental preachings in The Storyteller and this was the only book on my Ipad that wasn t emotionally draining So I guess this was doomed from the start Some spoilers, nothin [...]

    18. Jasprit on said:

      4.5 starsUltraviolet reminded me of one of my all time favourite films Shutter Island After finishing the book I sat there thinking to myself what has just happened In Ultraviolet we are told the story through Alison she s found herself in a psych unit after admitting she killed Tori a girl from school Tori, hasn t been seen since, but her blood was found at school at the spot where Alison the last person to have seen her had a confrontation with her Alison s mum has always believed Alison s not [...]

    19. Jo on said:

      Initial Final Page Thoughts.Enjoyable but I kind of wish we could ve read t other story mentioned at the beginning with the girl with the odd shaped birthmark No offense Alison, you re cool and all but yeah Also, can you say sequel I d be OK with that, I think.High Points.What an opening Highly visual writing that did not provoke a single eye roll OK, there was a little towards the end but I ll discuss that later A strong heroine who only gets a bit annoying towards the end Realistic portrayal o [...]

    20. Lindsay on said:

      Alison is in a mental institution following a breakdown where she somehow disintegrated another sixteen year old girl The police and the doctors want to know what happened to Tori, where she has disappeared to and why Alison had Tori s blood on her hands Alison struggles with her doctors, her medication and her own history of mental health issues and it all comes to a head when a new doctor visits the hospital and professes to believe Alison s bizarre story.This story is at its strongest while d [...]

    21. Nic on said:

      Favourite Quote I might not be ready to pour out my feelings to the world, but I d had enough of trying to ignore them Wow Ultraviolet is an incredibly original and hypnotic read I just loved how refreshingly different it was from the plot to the characters to even the style of writing Everything was unique and it that made for such a standout read.Ultraviolet is the story of Alison who is placed in a psychiatric unit after complete breakdown She is also the main suspect in the murder case of th [...]

    22. Limonessa on said:

      In every novel worth its name there is an abundance of figures of speech such as metaphor, simile, oxymoron They are part of the texture of the narration and are employed to enforce the first rule of Writing 101, which is to show and not to tell.I remember quite distinctly having studied rhetorical figures during my high school years in Italian classes and I knew synesthesia from such classes I still remember one example quite distinctly taken from a poem by Pascoli un pigolio di stelle a chirpi [...]

    23. Sandy on said:

      4.5 out of 5 starsSo unexpected in such a good way It s impossible to talk about how amazing this book is without delving into spoiler territory, so I m keeping my recommendation vague and short READ THIS.You start with that stellar hook kudos to R.J for captivating me from chapter zero and you think you know what type of book Ultraviolet is going to be, but then it completely twists and morphs through different genres to become an entirely different book And R J Anderson makes it WORK Can I jus [...]

    24. Amanda on said:

      3.5 that I m rounding up because I can t wait to read the second book This definitely has some flaws but if you don t take it to seriously is a fun read.

    25. Megan on said:

      Wow Fortunately I had an entire day to devote to Ultraviolet because I was completely hooked If you are reading this review you must have read the synopsis and know that it begins with sixteen almost seventeen year old Alison waking up in a psychiatric facility Alison initially has no recollection of what placed her in the hospital, and in fact does not even have a history of mental illness Author R.J.Anderson does an amazing, simply amazing job of setting the stage for is Alison crazy or isn t [...]

    26. Veronique on said:

      Everybody has a story, Alison, he said Everybody has things they need to hide sometimes even from themselves To set a novel mostly in a mental institute was something I just couldn t miss And Anderson pulls it off brilliantly Here we have the experience of a teenager finding herself in such a place, trying to deal with her situation Why is she here What happened How is she going to adapt to this restricted and indeed disturbing asylum Through her own experience and what she sees of others, the a [...]

    27. Ceilidh on said:

      I am a sucker for the dark side of literature Growing up, I went through a massive phase of reading books about crime, serial killers and down trodden detectives looking to solve the case, so seeing the synopsis of this book on NetGalley made it an instant must read for me The book was surprising on many levels and it s a real genre bender, not quite the straight forward dark thriller I thought it was going to be, but did it work Some of it worked rather well It becomes evident very early on tha [...]

    28. Angela on said:

      Read via NetGalley.Ultraviolet is a novel unlike any other, I have to admit But the plot was rather slow You already know what is so special about Alison, if you know about some physical phenomenons But it takes at least half of the book just for someone to reveal Alison s special senses It is pretty common known knowledge that there are some people in the world who can see the colors in numbers Those people well some of them are pretty famous or had news coverage of them on television or online [...]

    29. Laura Lulu on said:

      4.5 starsWow Really cool book I don t know where to begin I feel like anything I write in this review will be a bit of a spoiler in one way or another, so I ll try to be vague.The story is told in first person from the POV of Alison, a 16 year old girl who can see sounds and smell emotions and taste lies Numbers each have a color, names have a personality, and the stars make music And she has hidden this extra side of herself since she was 6 years old and shared it with her mother, who proceeded [...]

    30. Sesana on said:

      I was 100% on board, until the plot twist Yes, I was expecting something to explain what happened to Tori, but view spoiler aliens hide spoiler Meh And I was uncomfortable with the romance, between the underage main character and a man who s at least in his mid twenties, particularly once the other shoe drops with him.
