    One thought on “White Crow

      “If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black, you mustn’t seek to show that no crows are; it is enough if you prove one single crow to be white.”– William James.What a weird little book is the one I have just read. Markus Sedgwick sure knows how to write books that make me think so much.You must have noticed all crows are black, aren't they? Now, imagine what would happen if one day you see not a black crow but a white crow. Your beliefs would be changed. You would not be able [...]

      With its creepy cover and synopsis, I was sure White Crow would be the perfect read for my creepy loving taste. When creepy turned to odd, and by odd I mean barf-on-some-pages-and-call-it-a-book odd, I knew I was wrong. *sigh*A very spooky setting, White Crow lands us inside an eerie little town that is being slowly decimated by the ocean. This town inhabits only a small population and a lot of run down or abandoned dwellings. I thought right then it was going to be a fantastically creepy novel, [...]

      This is the book I wish I had written. Stunning and as close to prefect as I have found.

    4. Sesana on said:

      Weird and creepy, mostly in good ways. The multiple viewpoints fractures the narrative more than I would like. There's two present day viewpoints, one in third person and one in first person, and a first person POV from the late 18th century. I'm not entirely convinced that the 18th century POV was necessary, but I liked it anyways. Neither Ferelith nor Rebecca are particularly likable characters. Ferelith is a manipulative creeper, and Rebecca is strangely immature for a sixteen year old who gr [...]

      Не знам какво да мисля за тази история. Хем не можеш да я оставиш до последно, хем те обърква с всяка следваща страница. Атмосферата е наистина напрегната и мрачна, но и някак лека, защото неусетно стигаш края на книгата и виждаш смисъла, виждаш бялата врана. Интересно, нетипи [...]

      I am really disappointed to be giving this book 2 stars! As it has been longlisted (and shortlisted shock horror) for the Carnegie award this time around I was sure that I was going to be swept away as I have been by other books by Marcus Sedgwick (Blood Red Snow White is awesome). However. This story feels like it's been hastily written and there are three different narratives running parallel throughout the story and they never quite gel with one another. Without giving too much of the story a [...]

    7. Andrew on said:

      This was another gamble which I must admit I wasn't sure I was going enjoy or not. Okay not the best opening line I will admit but here is my logic. I the book blurb does not really give a convincing reason to read it - well at least to me. It tells of 3 narratives which appear to be interlinked with at least one of them being from a distinctly different time. So not sure what the story is but it feels like there will be a cliche or two here.Well I was wrong, I have read a couple of books from M [...]

    8. Rikke on said:

      Yet another weird story, but I kinda liked it. The ending especially. The style wasn't my favorite, but I do think Sedgwick is an amazing story teller, and It did hold my interest enough to finish it in one sitting. Still, it's weird, and you may want to be in the mood for weird, if you choose to read it.

    9. Tria on said:

      4.5 stars. "A modern gothic thriller", the cover of this edition states, and it's certainly that. I feel I should, by rights, include a trigger warning in this review. But if I specify, I will spoil the story badly, which I don't wish to do as it is important not to know in advance what will happen. To put it in the least spoiling fashion I canis story contains death and discussion of death. So be cautious if any such topic is likely to trigger you.It takes a little time to work out which voices [...]

      This book was confusing.The diferent pionts of view didn't work.The only character that was slightly interesting went slightly crazy.And the story was wierd.

    11. Tatiana on said:

      Sufficiently spooky and suspenseful for YA, but the ending is not satisfying in any way. Or I just didn't get it. In this case, your explanations are very welcome.

      3 starsMr Sedgwick, why must you always do this to me? I love your style or writing, descriptions, and details, etc, and the stories that you conjure up are always so fantastic, unique and confusing and I enjoy reading your multiple POV's. They make you want to get to the core of what it's all about - but every time I am left dissatisfied with the conclusion. You should be the spokesman for anti-climaxes.I'll still read your books though. You are too bizarre to give up.

      So storytime. This book is an EXPERIENCE. I borrowed it from the library one time and read it all in one sitting- not because it was short- because it was GREAT. I cried from pure terror in the book. I was terrified to sleep that night and that is precisely why I enjoy horror novels for that fear it provides. The anticipation and the excitement. I was raised on horror films and so no horror media can usually affect me. But this book. I loved the feeling it provided. That's what makes it my favor [...]

      "White Crow" was a quick read that I'll admit seemed interesting in its premise and set up, but didn't quite live up to tying things together very well. It engaged me, certainly with it's mix of murder mystery, religious corruption and questioning, scientific limitations, supernatural hints, and atmospheric prose. However, I found that in the blend of the three viewpoint characters this novel takes on (a corrupted priest, a young woman named Rebecca, and her convoluted, off-center new friend Fer [...]

    15. Rayne on said:

      White Crow is a strange and gritty read. Confusing at times, frustrating at others, but impossible to resist, I couldn't tear myself away from it and its gory and horrifying images. Rebecca is not particularly endearing or likable, but you feel for her and her situation, especially as she is dragged into Ferelith's games. But it is Ferelith who got my entire attention and interest all throughout the book. This girl was intriguing and mysterious and you know she is dangerous, but, like Rebecca, i [...]

      As I was walking through the library I found myself In the HORROR section. I thought to myself " Why not I could use a good scare". So I read tons of the backs of the books hoping to find the perfect book to give me and good scare. I finally came across the book " White Crow ". Not only did the title interest me but the cover and as well as the description. So at that point I thought I had found the perfect book that would be a great page turner and something that will always leave me wanting mo [...]

      Marcus Sedgwick’s YA novel White Crow is not for the faint of heart, but careful readers will certainly be rewarded by this atmospheric tale. It’s a creepy story of science and obsession, of ghosts both real and imagined.Rebecca and her policeman father move to Winterfold, a seacoast town in England. Like many other villages along Britain’s coast, Winterfold is slowly being eroded by the sea and what was once a bustling village of thousands of people is now “storm by storm, year by year [...]

      I was totally hooked by this book from the moment I picked it up. Seriously, I grabbed it this morning and kept reading, and reading until I finished it. Took me less than a day because I got totally carried away by Rebecca and Ferelith's stories.Rebecca has just moved with her father into a cottage in the coastal town of Winterfold. She hates that she's forced to live here, in a place that takes her twenty-five minutes to explore. She hates that she's left her friends and boyfriend behind in Lo [...]

      When does a genius become a monster? What happens when experiments go too far? Marcus Sedgwick's gothic horror 'White Crow' gives us two characters whose explorations centuries apart endanger the lives and sanity of their sidekicks. One of these explorers is Ferelith, who obsesses over the girl who has just moved to her crumbling seaside town, finding ways to draw her into increasingly sinister games. Judging by other reviews, Ferelith is an unpopular character - FYA describes her as a 'book kil [...]

      This book creeped me out. No. Really. There were no truly, truly graphic scenes (although blood is mentioned frequently on a few pages toward the end and a couple of descriptions of certain nastiness may gross out a few people), but it still creeped me out.There is not much I can say to explain the book, though. Girl named Rebecca moves with her father to a very small coastal town in England that, over the years, has been literally falling apart and into the sea. The circumstances for their move [...]

    23. Charlotte Jones on said:

      This whole book has a distinctly creepy feeling, that kind of feeling you get when you think someone might be watching you, where the hairs on the back of your neck stand. I won’t say anything about the actual story just because I think it is something that you need to discover for yourself but I will talk about the feel of the novel and the writing.The writing itself was beautiful and poetic in parts, as I have found with other Sedgwick novels, and the narrative style was really interesting a [...]

      Keri McLucasHorrorRebecca lives with her father after being uprooted, against her will, from her home in London. Ferelith is an odd teenager living a bohemian style life after the loss of her mother and father. Rebecca and Ferelith met the first time in place known as “lover’s seat”, a quiet clearing on a cliff in thier town, Winterfold. Although their friendship should have never started, the two girls share many secrets and a strong desire to know if life-after-death exists as well as th [...]

      This is a darkly compelling story about a young teen named Rebecca who moves to a seaside village named Winterfold with her father, a police officer who is in disgrace for causing a wrongful death. Rebecca is less than enchanted with the village, but meets a strange girl named Ferelith who is rather insistent upon becoming friends. Ferelith lures Rebecca into some "dares" that provide a much needed sense of excitement for Rebecca, who is bored by her current environs. The book features two conte [...]

    26. AngryGreyCat on said:

      This is my second Marcus Sedgwick book and I will say that I thought that MidwinterBlood was the better of the two. This book was advertised as horror and is undeniably creepy and suspenseful. Sedgwick’s prose once again has the same sparse quality that I admired in MidwinterBlood and while it works, especially for the setting and atmosphere, I feel character development was lacking in this book. I am left unsure if this was purposeful, to leave it up to the reader to come up with some of thei [...]

    27. Maitha on said:

      Again, this book has been a gift and unfortunately super-natural or these kind of thrillers don't match my nature. The reason i didn't give it stars is not because it was not beautifully written, on the contrary it was written in a very good way it made me gloomy, depressed and wary for the couple of days I started reading it. If that was the effect that author was striving towards getting his readers to feel, then he succeeded. I wanted to finish it quick and then throw it away. It's the same t [...]

      I found white crow to be a brilliantly creepy and fast paced read which I really enjoyed.The thing I loved the most about this book was the characterisation. I thought the contrast between the two main girls was brilliant and I loved seeing how their strange little friendship developed and twisted and turned as the story progressed. I also though it was very clever how the author switched between the two girls and their opposing points of views on thes story.I also loved how the author alternate [...]

    29. Dodie on said:

      Wonderfully atmospheric, spooky and weird, Sedgwick's newest title throws the reader into a very contemporary and complicated teen relationship, gothic horror and some parental angst on top of that. And it all works. I read the galley edition on a plane and the Kindle reader to the right of me and the Kobo reader to the left of me were nosily eyeing the gorgeous cover (which I like better than what might be depicted here as the final cover) and change of font styles as the story flips from prese [...]
