    1. After having some time to think, i made the overall conclusion that this book is the most frustrating and saddest book i have ever read The Program is set in a world where depression and suicide are considered a virus If you are thought to have caught the virus, the handlers come to get you and take you to a facility known as The Program.Little teaserI look back at James one last time, and he gives me his signature smile, wide and cocky But it s not real Sometimes i think it s never real James i [...]

    2. I can see why some readers of young adult are swearing off dystopic stories now I actually like dystopia, but I can see that they are beginning to suffer from the same story different day tropes This for me is one of those.First of all, you have suicide as an epidemic WTF Supposedly, one in three or four kids are killing themselves Why I don t remember reading why in this book It vaguely mentions that anti depressants have been over prescribed and that might be the reason Dude, I don t care if i [...]

    3. Well I had a lot of issues with this book, but there were some good things so I don t think a 1 star was necessary It was very nearly that though IF YOU LOVE THIS BOOK YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT LOVE THIS REVIEW JUST PRIOR WARNING.Before we go further in this review, let me just say this book and review will have some trigger warnings for suicide, self harm, depression Let s start with the positives The plot of the book was really interesting and the writing was alright I definitely sped through it b [...]

    4. Edit, July 2014 Wow, so much passion about this review over a year later While you can certainly feel free to leave comments on this review, I don t see my opinion of the book changing The fact that the book is fiction does not change my opinion that it s irresponsible and unrealistic particularly in a science fiction novel, which is supposed to be based on scientific fact to portray mental illness in the way it is shown in The Program.Books don t usually piss me off, but then I don t usually re [...]

    5. If I wasn t so bored with dystopians lately, this one might have been enjoyable for me Although it has a little contemporary feel to it than most, and the plot direction it takes is different from the expected and clich s run and hide from the big bad government , in the end I still felt that it was yet another dystopian novel that doesn t particularly stand out from the rest.A little reminiscent of Delirium, The Program involves teen suicide and how its become an epidemic, and the cure involv [...]

    6. Reactions to The Program will differ I think based on which of these two scenarios you were expecting A a thought provoking treatment of teen suicide or B a typical dystopian that co opts yet another attention grabbing premise only to degenerate into the same evil government conspiracy keeping apart the star crossed lovers plotIf you thought B , The Program is a perfectly fine book Ignore this review and enjoy the book for what it is Personally though, I thought A , so my reaction went from intr [...]

    7. I ll make this quick and painless like DeathQuik It s a cheesy, gooey, melodramatic love story in the guise of a dystopian novel with a futuristic setting in which people are plagued with an epidemic that makes them want to go and kill themselves Don t bother with the whys because you won t get any Just go along with the story and the half absurdity of it all and I m sure you ll enjoy Lol If you don t like that kind of stuff I d say you skip it but if you gather much enjoyment and entertainment [...]

    9. This is one of my new favorite books And I mean it s a top favorite I can t even explain how much I love this book And I think a lot of my love for it could come from the fact that it really hit home I ve never personally had depression, but when I was in high school there was someone in my life who was really, really important to me And I was right there during every second of his battle It was really devastating, and something I don t like to remember very often, but this book brought me right [...]

    10. southernbredsouthernreadsI put off reading The Program for so long I had really no idea what it was about and I haven t truly known anyone whose read it It s been in my TBR pile for about four months if not So I finally picked it up I wish someone would have recommended this to me so I would have done it sooner The Program was a a huge surprise With suicide rates at and all time high, and it being considered a disease you have to be careful of what you say or do at all times There are handlers [...]

    12. Suicide rates are higher than ever in the time period for this book Seems mostly similar to current time but medical technology is higher and civilization control it tighter Why because 1 in 3 teens are offing themselves.Right from the beginning the program annoys me in how high risks are decided I see why people are concerned But they are asked these daily questions such as Are you overwhelmed or lonely Who isn t, once in a while at least, 1 of those things Ughey need a better set of standards [...]

    13. Probably the worst book I have ever read Concept is absolutely awful, makes a joke of eating disorders and depression like everyone can magically get infected for no reason Suzanne Young s writing is reminiscent of Stephanie Meyer s because it is really just downright awful Main characters have sex right off the bat in the beginning, and it s pathetic, strange, and sporadic The opening of the book feels like an erotica, then the middle turns into this unrealistic stupid crap about the PROGRAM, [...]

    15. Okay, I ve put this off long enough, so I m just going to power through this See, I ve struggled for over a couple of weeks putting into words what The Program is truly about My hesitation lies with the possibility that when I say, This book is about suicide, but it s really not about suicide someone will take that one statement and not only get irritated with my lacking analogy but also not give The Program a chance So allow me a few moments while I try to convince you not to make the same mist [...]

VIDEORECENSIONE youtube watch v QcvdyThe Program mi ha completamente stregata Con una trama originalissima, uno stile di scrittura accattivante e dei personaggi coi fiocchi non pu fare altro che annoverarsi tra i miei libri preferiti e lasciarmi trepidante in attesa del secondo.In un mondo dove il suicidio una malattia, vivono due giovani innamorati Sloane e James Non possono piangere o mostrare dolore e non devono assolutamente, in alcun modo, dare segni di debolezza o saranno i prossimi ad aff [...]

    17. 5 starsUsually when I love a book as much as I did with this one, I normally can t wait to write a review, things will pop in my head and I even just start writing things down in my notes if I m busy With this I couldn t do either of those things just because of the fact it is so hard to review I actually feel like this could be the trickiest book to explain, this is because it s one of the most angsty, twisty, mind fuckery, heart breaking, depressing and so out of the ordinary books I have ever [...]

    18. This book was an entertaining read, I will give it that Unfortunately, I had some major problems with it For one thing, you didn t get any good descriptions of anything really besides James It is true it leaves the reader to his or her imagination, but a better writer would give you some of both Secondly, Sloane was very dependent on boys She depended on James to get her through Brady s death, she depended on Realm to get her through the program, and she even depended on Roger to help her rememb [...]

    19. Don t say that, he snaps Don t even think of it He lets go of my hand I ll kill myself before they ever take me into The Program This was an okay story, and I liked parts of it mostly the romance , but the pace was very slow, and it dragged a bit.I felt quite sorry for both Sloane and James in this story Both of them had lost Sloane s brother who was a best friend to both of them, and to lose other friends too, it really wasn t a nice situation for them to be in, and their depression was evident [...]

    20. The Program was one of my Beat the Backlist challenge books, since it s been on my TBR list since 2014, and it really hit home for me, so it actually took me a while to finish the book even though I loved it.The Program is set in the not so distant future in a world where suicide has become an epidemic Those under the age of 18 are closely monitored for signs of infection aka depression and if they are displaying the signs, they are taken to The Program, where their memories are erased and they [...]

    21. Wow This book took me weeks to finish Weeks That, coming from me, is insane But it s because of how amazing this book was The writing, which is predominantly about depression, literally weighs on your shoulders It is by no means a light read It s something that really resounds in you, from the descriptions of Sloane s feelings to the romance that Suzanne Young has managed to make fly off these pages The plot was original In a world like ours, fraught with depression and anxiety everywhere, this [...]

    22. That ending This book was simply amazing.The only thing that I didn t like about this book was the romance, and the repetition that occurred in the first 120 pages After finishing the book, I understood why Suzanne Young wrote those scenes, and I loved that she did.The idea for The Program was actually quite brilliant, but also a bit frightening This book is not a dystopia, it s or less the exact same government that we have today It s scary that something as horrible as suicide could become an [...]

    24. The Program is a book with oodles of plot holes but I was still sucked in It kept me on the edge of my seat, reading nervously, always waiting for the axe to fall I couldn t put it down so even though it s far from flawless, I have to give it 4 stars.Sloane s brother has committed suicide and Sloane s parents will do anything to stop her falling victim to the teen suicide epidemic that is sweeping the world Even if that means sending her to The Program where teens are sent for a treatment course [...]

    25. I would recommend this book to fans of All Our Yesterdays I thought at first I wouldn t enjoy because the protagonist was already together with the guy but then I saw where this book was going and it was brilliant The romance was spot on I fell in love with James just like Sloane I just didn t love some of the plot elements in the Program itself honestly I had a hard time with how convenient certain elements were view spoiler how she is just special enough to attract attention from the people wh [...]

Ohhh my gosh, where do I even start How do I even sum up the awesomeness that is this book I expected tolikeit,but I absolutely ADORED it.It hit all these teary chords in my heart and I sniffled quite a bit It s talent to writ a book about a depressing subject and have the reader come out mildly happy at the end This book has aaaall the talent Do I shelve it as dystopian, though It s set Somewhere In the Very Near Future, where teens are treated for depression by locking them up and shoving drug [...]
