Gifted by H.A. Swain

Into the Wild

Read Gifted Online Free - In Orpheus Chanson's world, geniuses and prodigies are no longer born or honed through hard work. Instead, procedures to induce Acquired Savant Abilities (ASAs) are now purchased by the privileged. And Orpheus's father holds the copyright to the ASA procedure.

Zimri Robinson, a natural musical prodigy, is a "plebe"--a worker at the enormous warehouse that supplies an on-line marketplace that has supplanted all commerce. Her grueling schedule and her grandmother's illness can't keep her from making music--even if it is illegal.

Orpheus and Zimri are not supposed to meet. He is meant for greatness; she is not. But sometimes, rules are meant to be broken. Here is a thriller, love story, and social experiment that readers will find gripping--and terrifying.

A dystopian with music, romance, and two characters who were never suppose to be meet. GIFTED has a dual narrative that gives readers a clearer understanding of the different worlds both Zimri and Orpheus come from. These two characters couldn't be any more different. Yet, there's something that...

Actual rating: 3.5. I’ve read so many dystopian novels that I tend to be hypercritical of them. The author MUST bring something new to the genre or I’m not interested in it. Thankfully, Swain does that, but in the big ways, Gifted is just like any other dystopia I have read. In the future, the wo...

I feel like this book had a lot of interesting ideas, concepts, and characters, but I almost wonder if it should've been longer. I think more time needed to be given to those characters, the unfamiliar world, the relationships, and the ending. At the same time, this was not an action-filled book,...

I struggled with whether to give this book four stars or five stars. Ultimately, I believe that five stars is truer to the book's worth in my eyes. The one problem I had with the book was a few of the dragonfly passages. Some of them seemed forced/contrived and pulled me out of the story. I under...
