Review posted on Badass Book Reviews. Bold and brave, Aline seems like she’s not afraid of anything, but inside she can be conflicted. I did not hate it.
Breathe by Sarah Crossan – review
I simply got bored with it. These are the kinds of difficult questions that Sarah asks, and the ones she begins to answer so beautifully.
She lost the guy she loved because she liked him and wanted to be with him and that tends to turn someone cold. At the beginning of BreatheQuinn, Alina, and Brea are bretahe focused on their own major corssan. Alina’s a revolutionary who believes we can save the environment. Breathe gave me a typical dystopian world of a ruling government controlling the people through a promised hope.
Crazy for Young A Just wish I didn’t have to wait a year for the next one.
The POV was a bit of a problem for me because Alina and Bea sounded pretty similar and I had to flip back to see who was talking. What parents need to know Parents need to know that Breathe is a well-intentioned, if a tad clunky, post-apocalyptic adventure that explores the meaning of freedom after a natural disaster.
I have no idea how she’s managing to keep her balance. She was a tad snobby, and only cared about herself.
It would be one thing if he went after her, but the way that he was more of the “get away from me, why can’t you see I’m not interested” type of nuisance. Ever since the Switch, when the oxygen levels plummeted and most of humanity died, the survivors have been protected in glass domes full of manufactured air. If you want to live, you pay to breathe.
It’s just that it didn’t impressed me big time.
Breathe (Breathe, #1) by Sarah Crossan
Years later, Pod society is divided into Premiums, who have easy lives, plenty of air and positions of power, and Auxiliaries, who labour at endless shifts and pay through the nose for enough oxygen to get by. It sounds like an interesting concept right?
Future catastrophe is the new black, isn’t it? The saying ‘there are two sides to every story’ has much more meaning to me now. I need to take a step back Love, lies, betrayal—oh, and death.

Breathe Book Review
I was sceptical, to say the least. But once she meets Quinn, the pampered Premium boy, and Bea, an Auxiliary who has always lived by the rules, the three set out on a much grander mission than simply to survive the best they can, they are going to show the world that they don’t need to be prisoners in order to Breathe. A lot or a little? And…it may have something to do with the stunning cover.
Overall, Breathe is an amazing book! When I first began, I was sure that there was going to be an irritating love triangle. But even scarier…it could. If you want to survive, you pay to breathe. If you’re looking for a fresh breath of air – more crossn in the dystopian genre – look somewhere else. All the millions and millions of stars remind me, too, how small and fragile I am. But as the story progressed she kept disappointing me more and more and now there’s nothing left for me to like here anymore.
