"Alex Woods was struck by a meteorite when he was ten years old, leaving scars that marked him for an extraordinary life. The son of a fortune teller, bookish, and an easy target for bullies, he hasn't had the most conventional childhood. When he meets curmudgeonly widower Mr. Peterson, he finds an unlikely friend. Someone who teaches him that that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make it count. So when, aged seventeen, Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana, an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar, he's fairly sure he's done the right thing ..."--From publisher description.… (mais)

Detalhes da Obra

The Universe Versus Alex Woods de Gavin Extence

  1. 00
    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time de Mark Haddon (DemetriosX)
    DemetriosX: Very similar narrative voices. Alex understands human emotion and interaction better than Christopher and is therefore a bit more naive, but both are a kind of modern Holy Fool exploring a world that doesn't always make much sense to them.

This one is hard to review, but I loved it. Alex reminded me a bit of Christopher Boone from Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Haddon. They have the same wise yet naive tone. This book was delightful, moving, and important. ( )

Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book has been sitting on my Kindle for a year waiting for me to read the ARC that NetGalley sent me. Man, I was silly to wait so long. What a breath of fresh air Alex Woods was, especially when a lot of the YA books are dystopian in nature. I love the dystopian trend, don't get me wrong, but this book was something different.

I'm not sure how I even begin to summarize what I liked about Alex Woods. First of all, I loved how Alex was okay with being Alex. Even when he wasn't feeling that self-confident, he was still true to himself. Second, his loyalty, his love for books, his dedication. This story made me smile and tear up a little and I was both happy at the ending and sad that it was over. Definitely a new favorite of mine. ( )

This was one of the books I just grabbed in a used books shelf just because it was in English and seemed readable. It was. Just nothing for me. The story flowed nicely and it was an ok read, but I didn't particularly enjoy it, I was just killing time and seeing where it would take me. Nowhere. In the end I didn't feel for the characters although they were likable. In addition I felt the story was made too long compared to how little it said. ( )

Plus half a star. Enjoyed it a lot. Lot's of good science, plot kept up the interest despite starting with the ending, nice characters to spend time with and a gentle pace. A good outing for humanism. ( )

Alex is almost too much to believe, but it is still an interesting book that reads well.

It gives you some sympathy for euthanasia... ( )
