Couldn't get into it, plain and simple... Didn't get far enough into it to give it a fair rating either.
  bookwyrmqueen | Oct 25, 2021 |
Teen fiction; teen angst w/historical flashback. *SPOILER ALERT* I think this one has received good reviews, but after reading 100 or so pages I still had no idea where it was going and more importantly, didn't care. Ok, I had some idea, but the story takes so long to unwind its not-actually-that-interesting secrets, and it's mostly just pages and pages of angst and the know-it-all attitude that comes from angsty teens. To sum it up (I had to peek ahead to see where any of this was going because I lost patience with the whole thing): Andi is depressed and possibly suicidal; her brother died in a tragic accident involving perhaps a crazy person and a car?; her mom is put in an insane asylum; the estranged dad takes her to Paris where she finds striking similarities between her brother and Marie Antoinette's long-deceased son; after some wild night she finds herself in some historic flashback that has to do with the French Revolution. But the stuck-in-the-past thing only happens at the very end, before that she is merely depressed in general, then obsessed with the dead prince that looked like her brother. ( )

Revolution.
Obsession.
Despair.
Redemption.
Hope.

Torn by grief and anger over the death of her brother, 21st century Andi finds herself on the brink of taking her own life. Driven to desperation by betrayal, 18th century Alex finds herself running for hers. When Andi finds Alex’s diary, past and present become one. Jennifer Donnelly’s Revolution is a wonderfully epic story of two girls struggling to survive when their worlds descend into madness.

Donnelly’s meticulous research of late 18th century France is painlessly and seamlessly woven into the tale; her characters are fully-fleshed and draw you deeply into their world. As Andi finds herself compelled to follow Alex’s account of the days of the French Revolution, you will find yourself holding your breath as you turn the pages. At turns heartbreaking and exhilarating, Revolution is a fantastic read with depth and heart. I’ll be adding Jennifer Donnelly to my “must read” list.

"I will rain down silver and gold for you. I will shatter the black night, break it open and pour out a million stars. Turn away from the darkness, the madness, the pain.

Open your eyes. And know that I am here. That I remember and hope.

Open your eyes and look at the light."

This book was amazing. Captures a moment in history where many were struggling. Helps one realize that no one has it easy in this world but there is always someone out there who can help make it better. ( )

This is a great example of young adult fiction: beautifully written and thoroughly researched yet not, to borrow Patrick Ness's phrase, "an adjective novel". There is an emotional vividness and a delight in story that will speak strongly to teenagers. I hope Donnelly returns to the genre a little sooner next time.

BROOKLYN: Andi Alpers is on the edge. She’s angry at her father for leaving, angry at her mother for not being able to cope, and heartbroken by the loss of her younger brother, Truman. Rage and grief are destroying her. And she’s about to be expelled from Brooklyn Heights’ most prestigious private school when her father intervenes. Now Andi must accompany him to Paris for winter break.

PARIS: Alexandrine Paradis lived over two centuries ago. She dreamed of making her mark on the Paris stage, but a fateful encounter with a doomed prince of France cast her in a tragic role she didn’t want—and couldn’t escape.

Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, there’s comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal’s antique pages—until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine’s words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present.

Jennifer Donnellyartfully weaves two girls’ stories into one unforgettable account of life, loss, and enduring love.

I found myself within a forest dark,

For the straightforward pathway had been lost.

Ah me! How hard a thing it is to say,

What was this forest savage, rough, and stern,

Which in the very thought renews the fear.

So bitter is it, death is little more...
