    One thought on “Chloe and the Half-World”

    1. This review contains spoilers.Wow, just wow. This book is excellent. Now the fact that I'm saying that surprises me a little bit since there were a lot of small, admittedly personal, things that annoyed me about how this book was written. However in spite of that I found myself having a lot of fun with this book. Now it could be of course my love for Lewis Carroll and the references this book is laden with but regardless this book was a great read aimed at younger teens. Now it took me awhile to [...]

    2. MY REVIEWI received this book directly from the Author as a review request in exchange fr an honest review from myself.The cover is fairly plain, though it is an attractive colour it doesn't immediately grab you. The Train silhouette on the cover, to me represents the Ghost Train, so is definitely in keeping with the plot of the book.The book is quite a complex story, but it unfolds at a reasonable pace, and keeps you interested and wanting to know what will happen to Chloe and her friend Alice. [...]

    3. Chloe and the Half-World is a uniquely visual book. The author does a phenomenal job describing the often surrealist places Chloe & co. travel to and from during their adventures. It's like reading anime and it's (pardon the vernacular) freaking cool. If this book can make its way to the diverse audience to which it will most appeal we'll see The Slumberland Station series soar to the top of the bestsellers lists. Neon May has created fabulously smart, funny, daring characters in his open ho [...]

    4. Although this is said to be a young adult book, I couldn't put it down! The concept behind the story is very unique and imaginative. Two 14-year-old girls live on a private island owned by a company that designs new technology, where their parents are important scientists. The girls accidentally discover that each evening, ghostly figures run along the roof tops, seemingly trying to get somewhere. At first it is all a game to the girls, until one of the "ghosts" starts seeing them and asking for [...]

    5. This book is amazing! The author is incredibly creative-minded and talented. I look forward to reading other books by him. The book gripped me within the first five pages, where it opens with Chloe and her best friend Alice chasing the Echoes, a group of spirits that try to reach Manhattanville, an island off Manhattan that is uninhabited. Along with their adventures with the Echoes, Chloe also has to deal with a critical older sister and with living in a tightly secured community of engineers a [...]

    6. This is definitely s young adult fantasy book. Chloe and her friend Alice live on an island where a company designs new technology. Each night the girls go to rooftops and run with “Echoes”, ghosts, from one building to another. One ghost tries to communicate with them one night and things change from there on. The plot of this book is very imaginative, but not to my liking. There are some very good, vivid descriptions throughout. Some of the names used are uncommon and definitely geared tow [...]

    7. This Is A Dead End; See the "(No) Reality" RebootI downloaded this a few years ago as a Kindle freebie. About a hundred pages in I checked and saw that it ends in a cliffhanger and that there didn't seem to be any new "Slumberland Station" books.Here's why. The author abandoned "Slumberland Station" and rebooted the story as the "(No) Reality" series. According to Neon May's blog, "[t]he original story told in "Chloe and the Half-World (Slumberland Station, Book 1)" has been turned into a new se [...]

    8. The basic plot of the story was interesting. Although, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I felt like there were conflicting parts in the story. The main character, Chloe is suppose to be at the top of her class and the daughter of a robotics scientist. Yet, she doesn't know how to code a computer or understand a scientific explanation. I didn't see any real character development. The novel was basic. Once I got reading the book, I continued until the end. It was okay, just not really up to par. Ther [...]

    9. This is a young adult/teen dystopian novel which should appeal to anyone who's ever read Harry Potter or other books from that general genre. It's about two young girls who live on an island that is privately owned by those who are designing new technology, which just so happens to be their parents. Theirs some paranormal stuff going on that the girls are being directly affected by and must set out on a dangerous and mysterious quest.The descriptive words used to describe some of the characters [...]

    10. Chloe and the Half World takes you on a journey into an futuristic world surrounding the New York area where nothing is as it seems. Overall the story line was unique and the characters were interesting. I did have a problem with the way current trendy descriptions were used for describing a futuristic world and its characters as I find these detract from a futuristic setting. However, with that said, I still enjoyed the story line. I would recommend for those that like reading about heroines, g [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book. The concept was somewhat familiar but the story telling and the character growth was done very well.While I look forward to reading more I am not all that excited about the "reboot" that May is doing. I will give it a look though.
