Helen Hiorns ä 5 Summary

E name Name On Your ePUB #185 on your wristIn Corin's world your carpinomen the name of your soul mate marked indelibly on your wrist from the age of two or three is everything It's your most preciously guarded secret a piece of knowledge that can give another person ultimate power over you People spend years even decades searching for the. I met Helen last year at the Sony Young Movellist award ceremony because she won and we were lucky enough to bump into each other while she was having some very swishy meetings and I was at work experience at Movellas H I couldn t wait to get my teeth into her book but somehow I never got around to reading it until this week and I was so glad that I finally got around to it I think this is going to be my top read through 2014 The blurb immediately fascinated me Ever since I was younger and was surrounded my Disney movies where the princess had one true love and was destined to marry him I have been interested in the idea of soul mates and fate One thing that Helen s book did was separate the romance from the idea of a soul mate I had always failed to see the negative side to the whole fiasco one that involved suicide heartbreak and government intervention to the highest degree There was an inescapable sense of helplessness throughout the story as I realised that Corin knew how her future was going to turn out and had long ago accepted that there was nothing she could do to change it Whenever I read dystopian fiction there is always a sense of dread lingering in the pit of my stomach as I come to experience a world in which society seems to be going backwards The oppressive government has returned Individual freedom has been snatched away There are dangers lurking in almost every decision you make in life decisions that can make or break you in Corin s case the decision she has to make in The Name on Your Wrist is most likely to break her Helen makes it abundantly clear in the book that the idea of soul mates isn t what is usually presented in romantic literature but something much darker Corin is a complex character someone who I had mixed feelings about in the beginning but grew to love her because of her witty mind courageous nature and her hope for something better The uniue thing about Corin is that she sees an alternative at least that was what I had gathered from the book By setting out on a mission to deceive the world around her telling everyone that the name of her carpinomen is Thomas Corin is breaking away from the encouraged image of a teenage girl and therefore fighting the inevitability of her future that hangs over her like an omen Corin s rebellion suggests to the reader a small beacon of hope which carries on for the entirety of the bookHelen carefully crafts characters so that the way they react with the protagonist makes for an entirely riveting read Right from the beginning when we are introduced to the third Tom I knew that the characters I would be introduced to throughout the story would reveal to me the reason why Helen is such a successful writer By avoiding the classic mistake of YA fiction uselessly inventing characters to make the story interesting Helen used the strength of her protagonist to bounce off her other characters and reinforce the excellence of her story Hidden within a dystopian Helen also infuses many other issues and important uestions into the book Suicide depression self harm and uestioning of identity come into play continuously not only elevating the novel itself but making it current for teenage readers and adults alikeThe ending although unbearably cruel for an addictive reader for myself as it ended on too big a cliffhanger was perfect in it s own way and really drew together the main point of the story that Helen was trying to bring out Sometimes it s not about who you think you love or rebelling against the system just because Family loyalty and your own identity is often the way to start to put things rightI have been given confirmation from Helen that she is working on a seuel so hopefully we won t be kept in suspense for long
