Borderliners
Borderliners: A Novel | Peter Heg
2 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
National Bestseller Strange things are happening at Biehl's Academy when this elite school opens its doors to a group of orphans and reform-school rejects, kids at the end of the system's tether. But the school is run by a peculiar set of rules by which every minute is regimented and controlled. The children soon suspect that they are guinea pigs in a bizarre social experiment, and that their only hope of escape is to break through a dangerous threshold of time and space. Peter Heg's "brilliant" and dystopian Borderliners is a "uniquely philosophical thriller" (Boston Sunday Globe) and a haunting story of childhood travail and hope.

This book I just didn't understand. I felt as if the author wanted to mix a lot of things into one. It was, in my opinion, rushed and confusing. I have seen so many great reviews about it and I just don't feel the same way. If someone knows about this book, has read it, or has some comment about, please, let me know!

Lotta84 I've read this one a few times in the past 15 years, except it was the Swedish translation. It's actually one of my favorites! It's complicated in it's own way, depressing as well, but it's the first book I remember reading that portrayed time in such a powerful way. 2y
kellyannprz @Lotta84 I have been considering reading it once again, to get a better sense of it. It's just that, as you said, it's complicated in it's own way. I most definitely will give it another chance. 2y

Watching Jane the Virgin while I still have cable. Here in Puerto Rico, we are currently in the wait for the arrival of Hurrican Irma, a category 5 hurricane. Please, whichever your beliefs, keep us in your prayers, and good vibes are always welcomed.
