One thought on “Incarceron

  1. Cory

    I know many of you are staring at my two star review with amazement I imagine you re thinking, Cory, how could you This is one of the greatest steam punk novels ever written How can you rate it without even finishing it To that, I have a simple answer I wasn t impressed.This book, like many fantasy novels I ve ignored for the past few years, follows the Hero s Journey like a bible.Of course we have a mystery revolving around the hero s past Of course the hero has to be of royal blood because hav [...]

    I found it difficult to enjoy Incarceron at first.You know that saying, Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it Ya, this is Incarceron all over.So there s two worlds in this one story There s the real world and the Incarceron world.The real world is a futuristic world with fantastical technologies which are not used much because the King of that world decided that change was bad, progress demeaning and invention unsafe So he reverted the whole world to a pre regency era and f [...]

  3. Mike (the Paladin)

    I finished this book last night but waited till this morning to review it Had I not, I suspect that the review would have been a bit triolic.I ve run on several mediocre YA novels recently and that not only disappoints me, but gives me pause maybe I m getting harder to please Having just gone through the Percy Jackson series and found it disappointing and reading a book by Tamora Pierce which I found mostly stultifyingly dull, I was rooting for this one Unfortunately it just didn t workout, at l [...]

  4. Krista (I remember you, Min) (Critical)

    Where to begin I just loved this book so much Reading it was like drinking a white chocolate mocha, oh so delicious Maybe I m really weird, but I ve always thought prisons were kind ofol Not the modern day kind, but the medieval types Strange, maybe, but I just find dungeons really interesting ANYWAY, Incarceron is the ULTIMATE prison It s alive, and it has a perosonality, which is just so unbelievably awesome I must admit, the twists were very predictable, but I didn t mind, because the plot is [...]

  5. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    Disclaimer It was hard to convey my overall views on this book I feel like this review is very much a I can t put my fingers on what was wrong type of review, so I apologize if it seems rather chaotic Incarceron is a book with some interesting ideas, and some intensely visual imagery Catherine Fisher put some imagination into crafting this story, and I tip my hat to the author for that However, my overall feeling after finishing it is disappointment Unfortunately, there were aspects that worked [...]

  6. Amelia, the pragmatic idealist

    If Incarceron was a school subject, it would definitely be science I love science, I find it fascinating, but I m not very good at it kind of like this reading experience First of all, this book is fascinating, captivating, the type of story that sticks with you to the point that you re forgetting everything else you have to do because you re so obsessed over what happens next But, on the other hand, it s really confusing, and to be honest, I had a hard time digesting all the intricacies of the [...]

  7. Megan Baxter

    How many different forms of imprisonment are there How irrevocable are they What does living in that kind of prison do I admire Incarceron for trying something that felt a bit new, and I generally enjoyed the story I m not sure I d go back to reread it, though, so that s my personal line for a four star book But although this is a three star review, it s worth checking out.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this [...]

  8. Tatiana

    Abandoned at about page 90.Reasons general disinterest in the story, the fantasy world and the characters fates unappealing writing style strong suspicions that Finn is the dead prince painful flashbacks of The Maze Runner, Matrix, Robocop and some apocalyptic B grade movies whose names I can t recall.Lessons learned science fantasy might not be my cup of tea.

  9. R.J.

    I love this book with a mad passion I could hardly even tell you why, except that the concept of the living and sentient prison that s a whole world in itself is amazing, and the blend of the fantastical fairy tale historical and the high tech aspects of Claudia s world fascinated me, and the Warden reminds me of Jack Bristow from Alias with his grim aspect and habit of keeping dark secrets mingled with a fierce if sometimes oddly expressed love of his daughter, and Jared is GUH and Jared Claudi [...]

  10. Cillian

    I have a good feeling about rereading this it ll be even better than the first time Although, my first read was pretty awesome it gave me nightmares and all Not the type of nightmare that will have you waking up screaming, or soaking your bed sheets with sweat, but like an annoying dream I dreamed I was in Incarceron and I had to pee really, really bad but the prison kept shifting and I couldn t find a bathroom.If I dream of Incarceron again, it better have a bathroom close by so I can take car [...]

  12. Colleen Houck

    I really like the idea of a sentient prison The mystery of Claudia and her relationship with her father is something my mind worked on through the entire book Claudia s tutor was my favorite character.

  13. Trin

    Basically, it s Escape From New York, except with fantasy instead of post apocalyptic trappings The characters are stock, and the action is propelled along by a lack of information and dull action setpieces that transpire without any real sense of excitement or danger I never got a visceral or even bare bones visual sense of what the living mechanical whatever prison of Incarceron is supposed to be like And, as with far too many YA fantasy sci fi action adventure books I ve struggled through, it [...]

  14. Megan

    Sadly, I was unable to really get into Incarceron, let alone finish it Gave up on page 221 The main problem with the story was believability Incarceron is a self sustaining prison experiment that is in a secret location and sealed off from the rest of the world Presumably the prison holds the normal thugs, rapists and thieves But it also holds political dissenters and volunteers Volunteers to Well this, like many other things, was never actually explained The idea is interesting, but I have a ha [...]

  15. Edward"s Ghost Engine (also known as.......... Jinky Spring)

    I m finished Done Turned the last page.And I m so glad.What a royal waste of time it would have been better spent sleeping cos yup this book was as boring as watching paint dry lol For a long time I ve been excited about the premise of this book and ordered it from my library being very excited to read it While it did start off promising with the promise of shocking revelations to come, the book soon went down and by the end it fell flat on its face Okay the characters Finn had so much potential [...]

  16. Ashley Daviau

    Although I found this book a bit slow to start, I did end up thoroughly enjoying it I thought the world building was truly great and loved the world that the author created And the concept of the prison being alive really intrigued me as I haven t read anything quite like it before I also very much enjoyed that it was a fantasy steam punk novel, I rarely come across them and I do so enjoy them The story took many twists and turns and kept me guessing as to what would happen next And then the end [...]

    Reviewed by Amber Gibson for TeensReadTooAbove all, Time is forbidden From now on nothing will change.After the Years of Rage, King Endor s Decree bans progress, pausing the world in an old fashioned era of medieval dress and travel by horse drawn carriage Though advanced technology exists, it is expressly forbidden, and everyone must abide to Protocol.Incarceron is an exception to this rule A prison that some are born into and that nobody ever escapes, Incarceron is not a building, but an entir [...]

  18. Seth T.

    This prison is alive.That pretty much sums up Incarceron s selling point It s probably even a better marketing line than the book s actual hook, a prison like no other which could really mean just about anything, from a prison made of pineapples and everything bagels to a prison in which the cells are made of popular song lyrics to a prison that is an exact replica of the First Continental Congress At least with This prison is alive, you have a pretty good idea of what s special about the book a [...]

  19. Bry

    Wow this book is one hell of a ride Non stop intensity, suspense, and action Frankly, not only is it a great book it would be an awesome movie This craziness made for a great twisted plot but did leave a bit to be desired when it came to characterization This book is about a melding of 2 worlds Finn from the prison Incarceron, and Claudia from Outside who also happens to be the daughter of the Warden of Incarceron come into contact through a communication device in the shape of a crystal key Eac [...]

  20. TheBookSmugglers

    Original Review HEREIncarceron is a vast, encompassing prison Instead of steel bars and cell blocks, however, Incarceron is a world in itself it is a metal world where nothing is created nor wasted, where stars and sky are near forgotten fairy tales, where all live in a cutthroat world, fighting for food and survival Even than that, Incarceron is alive it observes everything that goes on within its walls, it s red seeing eye omnipresent to the mortals within Incarceron is all they have ever kno [...]

  21. Crystal Starr Light

    Bullet Review If there is one thing I ve learned over the years, it s that life is too short to spend on books and things that you aren t enjoying.DNF 19%.Some people will love Incarceron Hell, lots of my friends already do And I can understand why it s a pretty unique concept and so far doesn t rely 100% on insta love, romantic plot triangles, and stupid characters And for people who love steampunk, there s that as well.But, it really doesn t have the things I like to read in a book The charact [...]

  22. Lisa

    I wish I could give half stars, because this is really 3 1 2 I thought the ideas in this book were rich and innovative, and the plot twists near the end were what made me round the rating up to 4 stars instead of rounding down I definitely want to read the sequel to find out where this story goes Update I recently moved my rating down to 3 stars because as time has gone by I stopped caring about reading the sequel Just didn t resonate with me, I guess The big negative for me was that this author [...]

  23. Jessica

    So, a couple of my friends have RAVED about this book, so I thought I d give it a try First couple of pages, La La La, this seems all right, don t know what the fuss is a WHAT THE This was a wild and crazy book Tense Intricate Claustrophobic So very, VERY claustrophobic Basically, in a future where even the moon shows the scars from many wars, peace has been made by taking all the unsavory elements and putting them into a giant, sentient prison On the outside, people live in a semblance of Ye Ol [...]

  24. Rebekah

    Wow It was VERY imaginative It took me a little bit to figure out what the heck was going on But then I got into it It was a bit long but fun.

    The prison Incarceron reminds me a lot of HAL, the space ship s board computer of Kubrick s Space Odyssey Both are fitted out with artificial intelligence and go rogue Incarceron takes place in the future 160 years ago a king decided that cutting off mankind from its strive after one technological improvement after the next would end greed, war and the slow crumbling of society So he forbid time and progress and switched everything back to an era long passed An age, when people traveled on horse [...]

  27. Eileen

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, but I have always been into reading fairytales and although they don t live happily ever after, this book reads like a fairytale It s a very imaginative, original and engrossing story that is vividly written with great characters It has action and suspense, but no romance thank God, no love triangle.I loved every second of it and although I didn t want to rush through it and enjoy it to the fullest, I couldn t put it down until I reached the last page It s all [...]

  28. Thomas

    This book was okay I kept waiting to get sucked into it but that never happened While I could imagine the intimidating world of Incarceron, it never really struck me as altogether terrifying or mystifying There was a lot of action, almost too much at some points The characters weren t defined strongly enough for me, and I never sympathized with any of them.Overall this book just wasn t for me I would recommend it to fantasy or science fiction lovers, however Not exactly a fan of Catherine Fisher [...]
