MP!er Madiya reviews Robyn Schneider’s ‘vibrant & beautiful’ ‘Extraordinary Means’.

If you’re looking for a new book to sweep you off your feet and carry you out of the darkness of “meh” literature, then Robyn Schneider is your girl. Well, at least we at MP! think so.

Our pal and MP!er Madiya applied to read ‘Extraordinary Means’ through our You Review section in exchange for an honest review. Let’s see what’s on her bucket list shall we?

One thing on your bucket list: To visit Edinburgh!

Had you heard of Robyn Schneider before reading ‘Extraordinary Means’? If not, would you consider reading more of her books?I had heard of her on Twitter and I know her debut novel was being recommended to fans of John Green and Stephanie Perkins. But now having finished Extraordinary Means I’ll definitely be picking up The Beginning of Everything.

What do you think of the cover? I really like the cover and the colours that are used. I like the way the lungs are made of tree branches, the portrayal of the lungs is quite beautiful.

ExtraDid this book meet you expectations, or surprise you? I didn’t really know much about the book when I started it but it did surprise me. Robin’s writing style is so rich, vibrant and beautiful, I was instantly hooked!

Who was your favourite character? My favourite character was Lane. I loved reading his growth from the beginning till the end and how his mind set changes when he starts accepting his condition.

Did you have a favourite moment or scene? My favourite scene had to be when they sneak out of Latham and go to Whitley to get some butter beer from Starbucks! I really loved the Harry Potter references in the book.

Were you surprised by the ending? Yes and no. While reading it, I did expect someone to die but I didn’t expect it to be who it was!

Rate ‘Extraordinary Means’ out of 10. 8/10
