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.

An adequate but not outstanding story that I probably won't remember anything about by tomorrow.

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...

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,...
