  • Okay I m not going to finish this book, but it isn t because I don t think it s a perfectly acceptable book It is The writing is actually very good, and the author presents a lot of interesting questions about what it means to be human This author has a compelling voice and the novel reads a lot like a Scott Westerfeld novel Even the paperback size and cover look like an Uglies novel However, Westerfeld draws the reader in much faster with rising action and character development.I m just not on [...]


  • I m going to present this review in a series of half explained gifs.In the beginning, I was just casually reading through it.And then I started getting into it.I was enjoying the story and beginning to get irritated with everyone s constant blatant disregard of Lia and the fact that she was still human.de.Then the story moved onto Zo or Zoie the Hoie as I like to refer to her and of course, I hated her.But it wasn t just your regular hate This was deep, burning hate that even the fiery pits of h [...]


  • Lia shouldn t have been in the car in the first place By doing a favor for her sister, she has changed her life forever A one in a million chance The navigation system in her car malfunctioned and she crashed head on with another car Her body broken her skin burning, Lia waited for help Unfortunately, her body didn t survive the trauma of the accident However, her brain remained in tact Lia wakes up several weeks later to find that she is alive She has been downloaded into a new body A body that [...]


  • Awesomesauce It was really good It started off a little confusing, but it had a very cool and sort of risky concept to it By risky I mean that it could have failed epically I see a lot of authors take on this kind of plot and then just sorta let it die, but Skinned pulled it off Not only was it addicting and exciting, but it got me thinking too There was depth in it than I expected it had a thought provoking theme about identity, and what makes someone who they are and not only that, but what m [...]

  • Jugendb cher sind oberfl chlich und voller Klischees Hier ist ein sehr gutes Beispiel, dass es auch anders geht Anfangs war ich noch etwas skeptisch.Lia Kahn, die Protagonistin, w chst in einer Welt auf, in der die Technik die Menschen immer mehr beherrscht Ja, noch mehr als schon jetzt Sie ist 16 Jahre alt, verw hnt und sehr von sich eingenommen Ihre Familie ist reich und vor allem ihr Vater hat berall gro en Einfluss Lia ist immer up to date, ihre Freundinnen sehen zu ihr auf und die Jungs him [...]


  • Reviewed by Sarah Bean the Green Bean Teen Queen for TeensReadTooLia Kahn was perfect She had a perfect life, perfect friends, and a perfect boyfriend She was popular and beautiful and everyone wanted to be with her and know her until the accident changed everything When Lia is in a fatal car accident, she finds herself awake in the hospital She should be dead, but she knows she s alive She can t feel her body, but she knows it s there Lia has become the latest patient in the download process a [...]


  • May contain spoilers, cursing and ranting.When something bad happens to you, like an accident as what happened in this book to our main It doesn t always mean death If your brain is still working you can be downloaded into a new body Some people if they have enough credit can have one specialty made if there is enough time for it But the thing is you are no longer human You can t bleed, eat, breath You can feel pain to a degree only with extreme actions Hot and cold mean nothing You can feel sli [...]


  • What in the world is up with Young Adult literature The F word was all throughout this book and premarital sex was openly accepted, embraced and expected I would never recommend this book to a young adult or an adult for that matter not that I didn t enjoy the book or love the story but simply because of the language and sex in the book.The story reminds me of the Uglies Pretties books It s an interesting story full of interesting subject matter I actually really enjoyed the story but I just wis [...]


  • Okay, this book is confusing and boring So boring that I m not even going to bother finishing it The beginning is kinda confusing and for the next couple hundred pages all the main character s doing is whining about her life as a machine.She describes how her life is falling apart and all I want to do is shake her and scream GET OVER IT YOU RE A MACHINE JUST ACCEPT THAT FACT AND STOP BITCHING AND MOANING ABOUT IT The beginning is interesting but it gets boring as the book progresses I m not sayi [...]



  • This was a quite gripping piece of science fiction, right in the line of Scott Westerfeld s Uglies series, Mary E Pearson s The Adoration of Jenna Fox and Circuit of Heaven by Dennis Danvers All of these titles tackle the question of what is really needed to make us human, what should be scrapped up and remolded, when large parts of our body or our mind are gone if we can that is, of if there should be a physical limit to holding up our excitence here on earth, of if we are allowed to tamper wit [...]


  • If I could have given this a negative I would I know it s a bit harsh, and I understand that plenty of people like this book but it held nothing for me Foremost the book does offer the interesting debate what does it mean to be human but honestly I have a hard time thinking that the same people who predetermine the entire genetic makeup of their children would really be so opposed to a body that you can choose the qaulities you want AND live forever The only thing that makes me understand why Li [...]


  • WHOA WHOA i have no idea how i feel about this book okay, that s only kind of true i have SO MANY feelings about this book first of all is this book EXTREMELY ableist, or extremely radical in its discussion of disability I CAN T TELL i think that the future of auden s character will elucidate this okay, i can t write in paragraphs any here are some feelings related bullet points 1 lia s whole body is a prosthetic whoa and the way that people relate to her about it is such a well crafted comment [...]


  • Sigh I really liked The Adoration of Jenna Fox, so I guess I was predisposed to not really like this one based on the jacket description What I didn t realize was how little I d like it post apocalyptic society, where you can breed test screen for genetic wants, high tech, blah blah and if you have enough credit, you don t have to die You can download instead Problem is, Lia s quest for identity post download and her questions about what makes people human just weren t drawn finely enough for me [...]


  • Full Review LinkLia Kahn is dead.I am Lia Kahn.Therefore because this is a logic problem even a dimwitted child could solve I am dead.Except here s the thing I m not.Lia Kahn had the world She was beautiful, driven and smart Born blonde and blue eyed from a gene depository hand tailored by her parents, Lia was the kind of girl that the world revolved around apple of her parents eye, darling of her high school, a sister, a friend, and a girlfriend But then one day when she reluctantly agrees to c [...]


  • 1,5 Sterne.Ich habe dieses Buch von Regal genommen, weil ich die Thematik interessant fand Solange man sich noch einfand in diese Welt die brigens mehr als krank ist , war auch alles soweit ganz okay Aber leider gab es keinen einzigen Charakter, der mir nicht unheimlich auf die Nerven ging und auch Lia war echt anstrengend Mal H , mal Hott Nie wirklich Tiefgang, alle Charaktere bleiben oberfl chlich, hatte ich das Gef hl Der einzige mit Potenzial war Auden, aber selbst der ging mir irgendwann ti [...]


  • Seit dem ich meine Ausbildung begonnen habe f llt es mir immer schwerer mich auf B cher zu konzentrieren Ich lese vielleicht wenn es hoch kommt f nf im Jahr was mich pers nlich sehr traurig macht Jetzt in meinem Urlaub habe ich dieses eBook dabei gehabt und ich beginne wieder zu begreifen was ich am lesen immer so faszinierend fand und immer noch finde Skinned von Robin Wassermann ist der Beginn einer dystopie wie ich sie gerne habe Sie regt zum denken an Wie meistens wird eine Selbstverst ndlic [...]


  • Das Cover gef llt mir wirklich gut, irgendwie hat es was.Die Charaktere sind sehr au ergew hnlich Lia, die einst wundersch n, reich und beliebt war mausert sich zur Au enseiterin und auch ihr gesamter Charakter ver ndert sich Ihre Familie steht auch nicht so recht hinter ihr, vor allem nicht ihre Schwester Zoie die bis dato immer in ihrem Schatten stand Am schlimmsten aber sind ihre d mmlichen Freundinnen Terra und Cass, ganz zu Schweigen von Walker ihrem fast Ex noch Freunden Auden, der ebenfal [...]


  • i nearly gave up on this book because of 3 reasons 1 lia is a thoroughly irritating character everything she does is so self centered and she can t understand anything everytime someone tells her something that makes sense or she basically already knew, she denies it and its not just a stage it is the whole book 2 it didtn feel like a story it felt like an introduction or prologue the story plots isnt something that should make a book this longere isnt enough story to ite whole time, up to the l [...]


  • Yet another book I regret not reading sooner I loved this Set in the future, where the entire world is living on technology we can t even dream about yet, Lia Kahn is in an accident that almost kills her She is downloaded onto an artificial body, and everyone who knew and loved her now want nothing to do with her To them, she is no longer Lia Kahn She is now just a robot pretending to be Lia What I loved is no matter how advanced this world is, everyone is so quick to disregard the mechheads Ski [...]


  • SPOILERS Alongside recently published novels like Unwind and the Adoration of Jenna Fox, Skinned is about a teen who has lost control of her own body After a horrific freak car accident, Lia s body is un salvageable Her parents give the order to have her brain downloaded into a computer and she s given a newly constructed body, made of artificial materials Uber religious folks hate the skinners, and believe they have no souls once their brains are downloaded Lia agrees that she doesn t feel like [...]


  • Lia Kahn was perfect She was popular, a perfect boyfriend, rich, and gorgeous Then one day, Lia got in a accident that should have killed her She wakes up to find out that she has been downloaded to a human like robot Lia is not pleased with the process and doesn t want to be a Skinner.Lia goes back to school and things have changed Her friends have left her behind, because of what she has become Her boyfriend is disgusted by her and starts going out with her younger sister, Zoe Lia is still the [...]


  • I have a whole bunch of thoughts about this book This would be a great book for discussion in a book club It brings up a lot of interesting topics I won t even try to put all my thoughts into a review.A lot of the time while reading this, I kept thinking of the movie Imposter.Lia gets in a horrible car accident leaving her family to choose between life and death To save her, her brain is downloaded into a synthetic body.I was so frusterated, throughout most of the book, with Lia s sister, Zoie A [...]


  • We have two SF books featuring mechanically altered female characters in this year s Peach Consideration list My problem is that it s been over a year since I read The Adoration of Jenna Fox, a shorter one that involves a new computer generated brain in the same basic body that the character had before an accident killed her mind I think In Skinned, Lia Kahn has an all new, all mech body that doesn t look all that much like her old self but she retains her memories, personality, and tries to go [...]


  • I read about halfway through the book a few years ago and just couldn t finish it I don t know why, it just lost my interest Okay, so we have this girl who ends up being turned into a teenage robot and ostracized as a freak and then I pretty much had the whole plot figured out from there She s going to meet a hot mech dude, a geeky human dude who wants to go Mech, everyone who s human hates her guts, there s a boatload of evil Christian characters, but since the author is trying to be politicall [...]


  • A very fast and exhilerating read I couldn t put this book down despite being absolutely exhausted after my first day of work and was almost late coming back from lunch on my second day because I spent time reading this than eating At first when I reached the end of the book, I was a little disappointed I felt that the author had dropped in several interesting ideas and characters that never had their full potential realized then I flipped to the front jacket flap and saw this is the first in a [...]


  • This was a recommended enjoyable book bordering on high end of YA Sci Fi with the language, adult words.The premise of the story was good, character development was well done even though you wanted to smack Lia occasionally in her self absorbed obstinacy Toward the end of the book she determined to start new, and leave the past behind, which then made me want to read in this series The abilities in growth makes me want to see how much growth could be obtained in the following books.


  • Sometimes I m really glad I read books I m not sure I ll like I was predisposed not to like this for two reasons, 1 It reads too similar to The Adoration of Jenna Fox and 2 I thought of the author as a series book writer the 7 Deadly Sins At first, it seemed a rip off of other similar titles, but the I read, the I got sucked into Lia s story I loved the character of Auden, his origin was believable, the ending is so shocking I literally got sick to my stomach It s so sad Please tell me there w [...]


  • This was the most depressing book I have ever read and I NEVER want to read it again From start to finish its a gut wrenching read Nothing good ever happens to this girl I only recommend this if you aren t looking for something to pick you up it wont It will make you cry and it wont make up for it at all A little itty bitty break from the constant depression in this would ve been nice I never want to read or think of this again Oh, to be clear, the writing and everything is great Its just very s [...]
