Description

Sephy is a Cross – a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought – a ‘colourless’ member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that’s as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools… Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum – a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger…

So arresting!

Such an arresting story! It left me breathless, and eager for the next installment. Tragic, yet hopeful characters.

A good book but it felt a bit off sometimes.

It was a good book, but in a few parts it felt like whip lash. Some of the twists could be spotted a mile away but all in all a good story and well written characters. Just not my cup of tea.

Kept me listening

The story was overall good, I'm a fan of dystopian/alternative history ya books, so this seemed like a great fit. I listened to it in one day not wanting to stop. I loved Callum and his narration . I also enjoyed the character of Sephy but I found myself annoyed by how fast her narrative was, I thought at one point that I had the speed turned up. My only real confusion with the story regards Sephy's reaction at one intense point of the story, any logical person would expect her to be angry and need a lot of convincing to forgive, but instead she is easily overcome by lust. This would have fit fine earlier in the novel or with more build up, but seemed super awkward timing to me.

Terrific YA Book

I chose this book because one of my students was reading the book and needed some help understanding it since English isn't her first language. I am so pleased that I did! It was a terrific book that kept me engrossed all the way through it. I could relate to it on many levels. I was a teenager during the American Civil Rights Movement. I could remember the Black Panther Movement. I was reminded of the IRA in Ireland. Now living in Australia I could see a relationship with the struggles of the Koorie population.
I am recommending this book to be put on our Year 10 reading list! I can see lots of discussions with the students.
My one annoyance is that the rest of the series is only available in abridged versions. The first book ended in such a way that I wanted to get right into the next book. Looks like I will have to buy the printed or e-book versions.

Confronting story

Would you listen to Noughts and Crosses again? Why?

No, once was nice, but also enough.

What did you like best about this story?

It confronts you with your views and makes you think about the stereotypes you have.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It was nice that there were 2 narrators for the 2 main characters. However, the girl was a bit overdramatic every now and then (Syan Blake) and the boy was a bit difficult to understand here and there (Paul Chequer).

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending: unexpected!

Any additional comments?

Listen to the sample first before you buy. If you like the narrators, this is definitely a story worth listening to.

Powerful, tragic and true to life

I read this book many years ago, so listening to it was a real shock, as if I'd never read it before. It took off and never let up right through to the tragic ending.

Romeo and Juliet continued <br />

It starts with a kiss and ends with a birth of a child. What happens in between must be read, not told or retold.
Great plot, wonderful language and beautiful story.
