No Passengers Beyond This Point Free download Ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Us driver meets them at the airport; when he drops them off at their destination each kid suddenly has a clock with a different amount of time left If the time runs out they have to become permanent citizens in a place they don't recognize. When three siblings get on a plane to go live with their Uncle Red they are whisked away to a mysterious land of Falling Bird where they must choose to become citizens or remain passengers and try to return home The temptations are many and the siblings have to deal with their grief over leaving their old home and decide if they truly are willing to step into a new adventure with their Uncle Red Each of the children deals with their turmoil in a different way and they make emotional choices in the face of dangerThe plot is all over the place and there are a lot of things that are left unexplained When the children first arrive in Falling Bird they are each given their dream home complete with all their favorite foods games and even a parental figure who plays with them and understands them perfectly Then the dream home is taken away from them and they are told that it is necessary for the next part of their journey But it is never explained why that was necessary or what part it really played in the plot Why tempt the children to stay in Falling Bird as citizens and then take away the dream home and still expect them to stay It was just badly explained or something Didn t make sense to me There were a LOT of things like that which did not make sense or didn t fit in with the rest of the storyI really liked the interactions between the siblings They are always arguing and they each have their own weird uirksThe writing is good the dialogue is hilarious and sharp but I just can t get past how disjointed the plot was And then the ending was so disgustingly pathetic One of those it was all a dream deals and I HATE thoseIt also has a rotating POV between the three children and I HATE changing POVs UrghAnother thing that bothered me is that the children are all still dealing with the grief of losing their father in a car accident six years before This issue is addressed several times and we see the kids acting badly because of their heightened emotions being kind to each other because their dad would have been and talking about him and how much they miss him but then the issue is never resolved It s just left out there with this horrible grief and they never come to a good conclusion or a little life lesson to help them So many things unresolved

Read No Passengers Beyond This Point

No Passengers Beyond This Point Free download Ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Or understand Only if they work together can they call the driver back to help get them where they really belong Suspenseful funny dramatic and thought provoking this is a book that will stay with you long after you read the incredible endi. This odd winding and dreamlike story concerns the three Tompkins kids Their single mother who has been financially struggling to keep their California house announces that the bank will be taking it The children beautiful and self centred India 14 responsible worrisome Finn 12 and genius Aspie child Mouse 6 must fly out the next night to Denver Colorado to begin living with Uncle Red Their mother will finish the school year in California with her grade 6 class hoping she will get a recommendation towards a new teaching position However the plane flight ends abruptly and the children find themselves picked up not by Uncle Red but by Chuck a child taxi driver impersonating an adult They are taken to the city of Falling Bird rather than Fort Baker where Uncle Red lives Initially Falling Bird is the land of wish fulfillment all of the siblings are given their own dream houses dream foods dream experiences and dream parent substitutes but the dreams end as abruptly as the plane flight did The children fall from a great height each in his or her own way and begin a race against time in this bizarre rule bound city with its walls tunnels silver rooms and its sky blue uniformed men and women The young taxi driver has told the kids that their lives somehow depend putting three wooden puzzle pieces together finding a tunnel dog and recovering a black boxI have to say I was wondering how the author was going to translate the dream logic and tie up the story When she did it made perfect sense of course However this two hour reading journey with its apparently disconnected happenings strange gadgets and rides in trams carts and segways just felt too long In real life unless one is a Jungian analyst perhaps people s eyes tend to glaze over when another person recounts the intricate details of last night s dream The dreamlike seuences that fill approximately 23 of this book provided a comparative reading challengeSadly the bulk of the tale focuses on India the superficial and unpleasant eldest child It makes sense of course because she is the one who most needs to grow Unfortunately being with her so much of the time was not particularly enjoyableCholdenko most definitely can write but all the odd bits and pieces did not seem to fit together enough to make an understandable or logical at least in places narrative The resolution made sense of most of the earlier experiences and even cast them in a deeper philosophical light Much patience is reuired in reading this challenging text and I personally would have appreciated being thrown a bone or two along the wayI admire what the author was trying to do or at least what I think she was trying to do provide us with a sort of metaphysical soul rendering of a physical experience but in the end I don t think it uite worked Young readers may surprise me by liking this story but may gut feeling is that many simply won t stick with it long enough to find out what was really going on
