The overt message of the book is that we are all animals, and unless we remember that and live simple lives connected with each other and with nature, we will lose our humanity. I absolutely agree with that.

Unfortunately, the underlying message is that we can’t actually solve any of our problems until we evolve magical mutant powers. (Full review at http://www.parenthetical.net/2012/10/10/review-the-whisper-by-emma-clayton-2012/) ( )

I really liked The Roar and was anxious to read the sequel The Whisper. Anxious enough to buy it online and read it on my iPad while at a conference out of state. But, I was very disappointed!

Let me start back at the beginning again.

The Roar is the story of a horrible world future. In this world an animal plague was turned loose and pets attacked and killed their owners. In order to keep humanity safe - an enormous wall was built encircling the globe just a little south of England. All humanity was secured behind the wall and all life outside the wall was destroyed - a vast wasteland.

A very odd thing happened after this event - no children were born for years and the first offspring were born with strange appendages and mutant traits. Life continues in this horrible concrete pen until the children are 12. And then...

The head of the Youth Development Organization, Mal Gorman, has a new idea - a way to take over the entire remaining world. He must figure out a way to control this children and mold them into his very own army. The first step is to kidnap Ellie and figure out her special talent of moving things with only her eyes. Ellie disappears and her twin brother Mika is left alone, the only one who believes she is alive.

He continues to believe in her even as weird things begin to happen to him - like a strange dog that appears first in his dreams and then by his side, a feeling that he is connected to Ellie and finally his uncanny ability to fly the new space ships in the local game room. Those space ships are not only a game - instead they are all part of Gorman's master plan.

That sets the stage...a pair of twins, a kidnapping, a secret and a mad man. It seems like a perfect plot. And honestly throughout The Roar I agreed. I rooted for the kids and their friends as the evil plot unfolded.

Then I started reading The Whisper.

Honestly - I felt like I was reading a rough draft about a book rather than the actual book. The conversation was stilted and the plot quite predictable. I was sorely disappointed.

The story does resolve itself - but by the end I just wanted it to be over.
Too bad!! ( )

This roller-coaster ride of a sequel to The Whisper lives up to its name as the people behind "The Wall" revolt. Chapter titles reveal the main theme of each chapter, giving readers a foreshadowing of events. Mika and Ellie, together again at last, lead the child "army" with intelligence and compassion. I love how all the children work together for the good of all. The nasty Mal Gorman gets his comeuppance, but in a kinder way than he treated the children. Mika's counseler friend, Helen, returns with some surprises about herself. We learn that the Whisper is the sound of thoughts, the Roar the sound of emotions. I especially love the nature spirituality that is inherent in the mutant children. Recommended for fans of The Hunger Games, with the same kind of intense, suspenceful plot, but more appropriate for younger readers with less violence. ( )

A golden light kindled in the tips of his fingers!

And once it started,it spread until he felt it rush right through him. He could feel it in his veins, coursing into him through the earth, rushing right through his body and into the tree, then it spread beyond him, rushed beyond him, like gold blood flowing thorugh one great being, from tree to flower to bush to bird and down the hill until the whole valley was alight with it. The fish in the river, he could see the fish, and the falcon hovering over the bank. The gold light rushed through it all, including him. (p. 304)
