    This isn t the kind of book where you fall in love with the characters and follow their story because you care about what happens to them This is of a psychological glimpse into some very real, very flawed characters This Is Not Forgiveness focuses around war, terrorism, extremism, loyalty and love It won t be to everyone s taste, but it certainly is compelling.This Is Not Forgiveness is something new from Celia Rees, who usually writes historical fiction Her wonderful Witch Child is still one [...]

    I have only read one other book by Celia Rees, Blood Sinister, when I was quite a lot younger, but I still connect Rees with historical and some horror stories This book is very different from the subjects and style of what Rees has written in the past and I thought that it was quite ambitious.The story revolves around three people Jamie and Rob, who are brothers, and a girl who comes into both of their lives Caro Jamie is supposedly your typical teenage boy, who gets a little bit obsessive with [...]

    This Is Not Forgiveness Review on K BooksI really don t know where to start with this review I was completely in shock and awe when I finished this book yesterday and really couldn t put my thoughts and feelings about it into words Today, I am still unsure of how I can really write about this book It was brilliant I definitely did not expect it to be as good as it was This is definitely not the kind of book that I usually read but I genuinely enjoyed every moment of it.Jamie has seen the beautif [...]

    I m giving up There is little introduction, and I don t know, maybe I missed something vital, but I m confused and I can t work out who the characters are and what they have to do with each other, and the plot is going nowhere and I can t see how it will go on, and I ve no interest any I think I ve given it enough chance to grab me and hook me in, and unfortunately it just didn t I may give it a go again in a few weeks times, but right now I m going to put it back on my shelf and start something [...]

    Read to roughly halfway and realized I was forcing myself to go on I don t care about these characters or the bare minimum of a plot that s being set up in those 150 pages I had been so excited to start this, but both Rees s writing style and her cast did nothing to convince me this is worth my time This was choppy, confusing, boring, awful and with repellant characters No, thank you.

    MORE MORE P.S I love that book THE WORLD The world in this book is our everyday typical world The story starts with summer break and takes place over the period of a summer, so we have teenagers and just young people going to parties, to the beach, clubs, having romances, falling in love, the whole young and wild dramaARACTERS There are basically three main characters in this novel Now the way this novel is written is from three different point of views, which I thought was a really clever and i [...]

    Beth
    This Is Not Forgiveness ripped something out of me, and then squished it back in In a good way I think.Written from three different, but irrevocably intertwined, perspectives, This Is Not Forgiveness explores the realities of war, political activism, first love, mental health, and how challenging clambering from teenager to adult 17 24ish can be if you scratch the surface It is, in places, a challenging read, but even the most shocking descriptions are somehow rendered a beautiful piece of the w [...]

    Until now, I had never read a novel by Celia Rees.This Is Not Forgiveness isn t the sort of book I would usually read.When I first picked up this novel, I d said I wouldn t read it but I thoroughly enjoyed it.Never ever judge a book by it s cover or you ll miss out on some gems What I liked was that Celia used different fonts to identify different characters entry and obviously each of them had their own distinct voice The explanation and detail was so vivid, if you closed your eyes for a second [...]

    The bulk of this novel centres on Jamie and is told in his voice We know from the start that Rob is dead Jamie is focusing on his ashes and thinking about his poorly attended funeral , and that his was not the only death Then we skip back in time, knowing we are being inexorably propelled to the catastrophic event that led to Rob s sorry little funeral.Before long, we are involved in Jamie s life, with some chapters in Caro s or Rob s voice These additional voices enrich the narrative and provid [...]

    I can t decide what to do with your ashes It s been nearly a year now Almost summer again This is not forgiveness Don t think that A powerful start We know Rob is dead We know there were funerals We know Rob has done something that cannot be forgiven, not even by those closest to him The story returns to the start of that summer Jamie s interested in a girl, Caro, and doesn t have much time for his brother who has been discharged from the army following an injury in Afghanistan Everyone knows Ca [...]

    Told in first person narrative alternating between the voices of Jamie, his hot tempered and rabble rousing brother Rob, and Caro, the girl they re both inexorably drawn to yet repelled by, This is Not Forgiveness takes a serious look at post traumatic stress disorder and how families are torn apart by mental illness and violence Indecisive, predictable, empathetic, and closer to his sister and mother Jamie is the opposite of Rob Sometimes vicious and heavy handed Rob takes after their father An [...]

    As I heard it, this is not Celia Rees as I have ever seen her before I ve been reading her books for years and this book could have almost have been written by a different Author no Vampires, no Historical, no Witches I had to have a copy of this and I admit, I practically dived on Bloomsbury when I heard there was a limited amount of copies The book didn t quite live up to it s hype, but that s okay, I was expecting that.The story follows three characters, all who get a say at some point There [...]

    I almost declared this a DNF because I couldn t tell if the main story was one POV or many since they were barely introduced Then there was the switching timeline, the unlikeable characters and plot that didn t make any sense I guess it drew me in and I did finish it but I m not really any wiser about the plot and the characters were flat I didn t really care about what happened to them.

    Naj
    This is Not Forgiveness was nothing like how I d expected it to be This book is not a story full of characters who you can sympathise with and at times I did really hate them but it is an absolutely amazing psychological page turner At its heart are harrowing but important messages about violence, mental health and love.

    I m a big fan of Celia Rees historical fiction so I thought I would give this book a go As soon as I worked out which characters perspective I was reading from I was hooked.

    Hazel
    This wasn t a bad book I did quite enjoy it but it took me a few chapters to get into it The beginning was a little messy and confusing but I m glad I persevered.

    As someone who enjoys Rees s historical fiction, I was extremely disappointed by this offering Her writing is always technically sound, and in this case, there s a good story in there somewhere Unfortunately, in my opinion, it has been incredibly badly executed.The pacing is slow, and the characters severely under developed Most of the time it isn t at all clear why they re doing what they re doing The story is told with three voices, all of them un engaging, particularly that of Jamie, who narr [...]

    Nuisance Nonsense
    It s hard to tell which chapters change the point of view so have some pointers Regular type is Jamie s point of view, bold type is Rob s point of view, and italic type is Caro s point of view Rob s chapters have a URL by the page number and Caro s chapters have a quote or picture by the chapter number On to the actual review part, I have a love hate relationship with this book Firstly, the way This is Not Forgiveness is written was very hard to follow For the first few chapters I had no idea wh [...]

    3.5 StarsThis Is Not Forgiveness is the first book I ve read by Celia Rees so although I ve been told it is very different to her usual books I can t make any comparison The story is mainly told by Jamie with occasional chapters from his brother Rob or his girlfriend Caro s perspective I ve seen some people say that they found the switches in narrators confusing but I have to say I felt the author gave each character such a clear voice that I didn t have a problem keeping track of who was narrat [...]

    For the full review please check out read2review This was my first step into the incredible world of Celia Rees, and what a step it is After reading This Is Not Forgiveness I am incredibly excited to read other books by Celia.I received This Is Not Forgiveness as an ARC advanced reading copy as it is not due for release until February 2012 The blurb on the back doesn t give much, if anything, away although mixed with the excerpt on the front cover you know that someone dies, someone named Rob Ho [...]

    Serendipity Reviews
    I knew that this book was going to be different to anything that Celia Rees had written before but I was surprised just how different it was I have loved Celia s previous historical novels and I was impressed by her ability to change to such a hard hitting contemporary novel that is very current and very real From the first couple of pages, you know this book is not going to end well You just have to work through the harrowing experience that led to the events that came to be There is a real col [...]

    Brandi Kosiner (Brandi Breathes Books)
    This is Not Forgiveness is darkly beautiful and draws you into this story with three main characters, all with their own voice and all with their own issues.The opening wasn t what I expected and I needed to know what it was that Jamie couldn t forgive and if I agreed with him So I began this heart breaking journey into Jamie, Caro and Rob s minds.While I preferred the views from Jamie, I was drawn to Caro and Rob s stories like a trainwreck that you can t peel your eyes from This is definitely [...]

    Rose
    Quick review for a quick read I didn t expect This is Not Forgiveness to be as emotional or as intense a read as it was, particularly considering where it began It takes a bit getting used to because you re navigating between three different perspective points told in first person in the print book they re distinguished between different fonts, but in the audiobook I bought from Audible, it s heavily reliant on the intonation of the narrator Steve West does a fantastic job with the narration, bu [...]

    Kirsty
    This is a Celia Rees book like no other Everything you ve come to expect from her writing, every preconceived idea you have about what her work is like completely forget when you start this book The book starts quite dramatically by giving you the end of the story first and then working back through the series of events that led up to that final scene explaining and delving into what happened and why The story then is split between first person narratives of the three main characters Jamie, his [...]

    I read this on holiday, so it s been a week or so since I finished it, and I can t fully decide what I think That s probably because I m not meant to First, there is one likeable character Jamie but that s fine, because he s very likeable He carries the story, and you want to know what s going to happen to him.In essence, Jamie falls for a girl called Caro, and Caro turns out for the reader Jamie doesn t know to be highly politicised She s a Western girl living in peace and luxury according to s [...]
