Description

Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the chilling sequel to the Printz Honor Book Scythe from New York Times best seller Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.

The Thunderhead cannot interfere in the affairs of the Scythedom. All it can do is observe — it does not like what it sees.

A year has passed since Rowan had gone off grid. Since then, he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire. His story is told in whispers across the continent.

As Scythe Anastasia, Citra gleans with compassion and openly challenges the ideals of the "new order". But when her life is threatened and her methods questioned, it becomes clear that not everyone is open to the change.

Will the Thunderhead intervene?

Or will it simply watch as this perfect world begins to unravel?

Amazing!

I absolutely loved it!! As the first one was so good I thought it would be quite hard to make a follow up as good but I was so wrong. This book hooked me and I couldn't stop listening. Bravo and thank you to Neal Shusterman for writing such an entertaining story and Greg Tremblay for rendering the reading soo alive :-) :-)

What a roller coaster!!!

Like any book, there are good and bad moments. Times when it’s impossible to put this book down, and times when you’re anticipating the next whirlwind. I have read hundreds or fantasy books and this one has such a great ending, my jaw dropped. Well done Mr. Shusterman.

I love everything

This is one of the most enjoyable pieces of fiction I have ever encountered in my entire life. The plot keeps surprising me, going to places I would have never dreamed of. I’m am internally screaming about the last few chapters, and I’m already longing for the rest of the story!

OMG! Not what I was expecting!

I read the first book, Scythe, as part of a book club at work. We were supposed to read/listen the first 50% of the book by the first meeting, and by that time, half of the participants have read the second book already! I thought they were crazy, but actually, they were so right!

Usually, the second book of a trilogy or a saga is weaker than the first one, and that is because we had so many expectations for that book that we get a bit disappointed that it was not as good as we thought it would be. However, Thunderhead is as good as the first one. If Hephaestus was the blacksmith of the gods, Shusterman is his equivalent in plot twits. I was gagging, shocked, gasping, and struck while listening to this book!

Bridge of Scythes

The middle chapter of a trilogy is always tricky. The gold standard has always been The Empire Strikes Back (and I could likewise make a case for The Two Towers) as a bridge between the world building of volume one and the resolutions of volume three that turns out to be a joy in its own right despite the lack of closure. Thunderhead is exactly that in Neal Shusterman's fantastic Scythe series.

Having completed their training as Scythes, Citra and Rowan embark on radically different paths. Scythe Farraday goes off to search for the mythical Land of Nod (don't ask, just go with it). A new character, Greyson Tolliver, is a muggle with a special connection to the Thunderhead, which becomes a major character in itself, speaking directly to us between chapters. And in a world where there is dead and dead-ish, you just never know who is going to come back from the dead (OK, if you read Scythe, you already knew in your gut who would come back from the dead).

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the best science fiction and fantasy says more about contemporary issues than about a speculative future or an imagined past, and Thunderhead does exactly that when, about halfway through, it turns its attention to Scythe politics. And then the ending is simply a knock-out punch that hopefully sets us up for a grand conclusion in The Toll. One can only hope that Shusterman is not prophetic with the way he ends Thunderhead -- we'll see how that goes in The Toll (which may seem easy to guess but is probably not going to unfold the way you think).

inorganic coincidences

the story is beautifully read but the coincidences which come about feel forced and necessary only to achieve an end.

Good overall, sometimes slow

Interesting. However, some character and plot development was slow moving. Looking forward to the next book.

Not as good as the first one but it did end strongly!

There were a lot of new characters so it was a little frustrating trying to keep track of all the characters as well as all the new settings. That being said this narrator is excellent with such a clear voice. Towards the end I got bored but it does get stronger again and had a strong ending.

Wow! A blockbuster book

I don’t know if there is such a thing as a blockbuster book if there is, then this is it.

The first book was incredible and you must read it first to understand the concept of the storyline. This second installment was just outstanding. It had an amazing, action-packed and riveting storyline that ended with a cliffhanger that had me gnashing my teeth for more.

I don’t think I have stated this before in any of my other reviews but I daresay that this is one of the best books I’ve read all year.

Bravo Mr. Shusterman - if all your books are this great- I’ll be purchasing them all tonight.

a story to make you ponder

amazingly deep. I love stories that make you think about what it truly means to be human or to express your humanity.

Steht zumindest an Spannung dem ersten Teil kaum n

Im zweiten Teil der Geschichte tritt das sogenannte "Thunderhead" mehr in den Vordergrund. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine künstliche Intelligenz, die für das Wohl der Menschheit sorgt. Während ich persönlich von der Möglichkeit in Zukunft die Lebensspanne des Menschen beliebig zu verlängern recht überzeugt bin, scheint es mir eher fragwürdig, ob eine künstliche Intelligenz jemals über ein derartiges Einfühlungsvermögen verfügen wird. Aber wer weiß...

Die Spannung ließ vielleicht zu Beginn des Buches ein klein wenig nach, erreichte dann aber schnell wieder das Niveau des ersten Bandes. Ich kann den zweiten kaum erwarten.
