    I have read this book for school and I have to say that it was amazing the way that Malorie tackles racism and stereotypes was amazing and I liked how she did it in reverse The play was well adapted from the book but I wish it delved deeper into Meggie and Jasmines relationship and how it all ended for them At the beginning I thought that Callum s character was a little bit rushed not that well portrayed considering the book but near the end I found myself realising the character development that he went through Overall Callum was a kind hearted and sweet person, he was ready to die literally for his and Sephys daughter.Sephy was very naive at the beginning but as she starts to realise the real world problems that are happening around her, she develops and becomes a strong independent girl who fights for equal rights She cannot actually protest because of Kamals position, it would show that she did not agree with her father Kamal has a family oriented campaign.Didn t finish cause I was practicing for homework

    Following Sylvie s example I am FINISHING this reading challenge Honestly, although I appreciate what a good write Malorie Blackman is and how well and cleverly she portrayed segregation, I just do not like the whole Romeo and Juliet, Edward and Bella star crossed lovers trope I didn t like it in Romeo and Juliet even though I usually enjoy Shakespeare and I do not like it here I also pretty much predicted the whole plot, so you know that kinda ruined it too.

    Dystopian YA Callum and Sephy s bittersweet love story set in a future society divided by racial bigotry and classism 3 stars for this stage adaption version which I bought by accident to complete my Books chart.

    We have all read books about forbidden love and prejudice Novels with the Romeo and Juliet theme are constantly being written Nowadays, they are so common, we don t really think much about them At least this is what I thought until I read Noughts Crosses by Malorie Blackman The book tackles the concepts of forbidden love and prejudice in a way that wasn t clich at all, unlike many other books of its genre The two main characters, Sephy Hadley and Calum, are from two different worlds Sephy is from a very powerful Cross family, which are the ruling class of society, as they are apparently closer to God Callum comes from an average Nought family Noughts are considered second class citizens In this world, relationships between Crosses and Naughts are forbidden In fact, it is unthinkable that a Nought and Cross would ever fall in love But, Sephy and Callum will not stand for this and still sneak away from their worlds to come and meet each other halfway Everything changes when Callum starts going to the same school as Sephy Personally, I think that this is when the underlying theme of prejudice really kicks in Callum is tormented, discriminated against, made fun of, and treated unfairly, all because he is lighter than everyone else Everyday he has to go to school and put up with all the name calling and prejudice that is pointed towards him Reading about what Callum was going through broke my heart The fact that these people won t get to know him or acknowledge him just because of his skin color is unacceptable Malorie Blackman did a phenomenal job with creating this realistic scenario Most authors just want you to sympathise with the character, but she made the reader connect with Callum in these situations Noughts Crosses is outstanding novel about the prejudice that lies not only in Callum and Sephy s world, but in ours as well The personalities portrayed in Malorie Blackburn s novel still live in the real world Whether we want to admit it or not, our world is still a lot like the one created in this book And that is what I liked so much about this particular novel, because it was so realistic, every moment that lies within this book could easily happen in real life All in all, Malorie Blackman s Noughts Crosses is an outstanding book that I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Note this is a review for the RSC s adaptation.We can agree that Malorie Blackman s story is amazing It really makes you sit and think about the world In terms of this adaptation, I was a little disappointed with Dominic Cooke He used cheap ways to get a message over to the audience and seemed to not give any consideration to the limitations of the theatre I would have loved to see this in theatre, just to see how they coped with it But, that shouldn t take us away from a grand story Noughts and Crosses is.

    I read this book twice and cried like a baby each and everytime I don t think I ll ever be able to read the rest of the sequel knowing that Callum is gone


  9. says:

    In the beginning, I thought the book is talking about racism and inequality in our society based on the stunning idea of nought and cross I have no idea why it suddenly changed to a tragic drama like story, Romeo and Juliet in the modern day Where s the insight about racism I expected Is the writer suggest ing that joining to some sort of terrorism is the only way to tackle the problem The baby is too much The good thing about this book is u can finish it in a day, good deal right


  10. says:

    Could not finish I like the idea of subverting racial prestige but there was no creative flare other than subversion The writing style is very basic, literal and not descriptive or extensive This was a disappointment.
