    1. Oh boy Where do I even begin with this This book was honestly a chore to get through The writing was nothing special and at times even clunky At first the world was explained by having characters explain certain parts of their world to each other, otherwise known as the As you know method It was never introduced naturally it was all the characters talking about it as if they had just arrived in a new country, instead of having lived in this environment their entire lives I probably could have pu [...]

    2. This book was absurdly bad It really was Everything about it just bit Oh, and don t be fooled, gentle readers this is not a deconstruction of the sexualization of women in media No, this is a virginity indoctrinating, weirdly preachy meandering mess Of the hot variety.I won t say much about it, only this according to this book, you re a whore You re all whores Unless you re chaste like Nina, that is Then you re not a godforsaken terrible whore Then you re clean But if you re like Sandy and you w [...]

    3. I hate giving a book with such a great idea only one star, but honestly, aside from the idea, there wasn t a single aspect of the book I liked it was executed very badly, and the plot was overdramatic and clich d.For one thing, there just weren t enough explanations for the reader to really understand the world Nina lived in we never find out how it was possible for society to change so drastically The reader got plenty of information and explanations about minor things like how they don t eat m [...]

    4. I was hoping for an explicitly feminist young adult dystopia here, maybe an updated The Handmaid s Tale for the younger crowd Something empowering, that assured teen girls that yes, sexuality is sometimes complicated, and exploring it is okay if you want to, and waiting is just fine too Instead, what I got was some wishy washy future lite with a trite love story thrown in Ugh.Can I just say I am so fucking sick of love triangles Or complex polygons, as might be appropriate here Maybe I m gettin [...]

    5. Weak This could be something I can write up and man, I cannot write.The obsession with dystopian novels at the moment is causing authors to come up with works that they will regret.Some of my favourite dystopias are The GONE series by Michael Grant and The Chaos Walking Series by Patrick Ness.

    6. RATING 2.5 stars.I really, really didn t want to write this review, because I feel like I have been posting a lot of reviews highlighting negative points I m not sure if the books are all that bad or if it s just me that can t read a book, like it and write an 100% gushing, glowing review Maybe I am just one of those grumpy people who likes to find flaws in everything, but I haven t read a book that was 100% perfect yet.That said, I liked XVI Overall it wasn t that bad But I did find a lot of fl [...]

    7. XVI has been billed as a feminist book, a deconstruction of rape culture Sadly, Karr doesn t deconstruct, critique, or even give a hard look at rape culture She simply observes it.Let s back up to the basic premise here On their sixteenth birthdays, all girls and only girls are given a XVI tattoo on their wrist, to advertise their sexual availability Paired with the sexualization of media aimed at teens, this has somehow lead to a world where female consent is a given Girls and women who are rap [...]

    8. I was born in the 80s, I grew up in the 90s, when the media market image of girls became the most sexualized it s ever been Flashbacks of CNN debates about the oversexing of the desired female image in the west came to mind when I started reading this book not that that s a a bad thing This book paints a picture of what our future may be if we keep going the way we re going.I have to say for a debut, I was floored by the sheer balls that Karr has for even bringing up this issue, much less couchi [...]

    9. The premise was interesting and characters and plot had potential, but the potential was never reached because the writing was just BAD About fifty pages in, something awful happened in Nina s life and I should have felt her pain, but I didn t A lot of it had to do with the way the author worded things Sometimes I would think, If only she had worded this sentence this way, then it would have been so much impactful Also, she did something that I ve been tirelessly teaching myself not to do She u [...]

    10. It s a little bit strange, but I feel as though I ve grown particularly choosy when it comes to the dystopian novels I pick up lately I m not sure if this is a result of the seemingly increased number of YA ones, in particular, being released Or if it s merely that my taste is evolving somewhat over time I did read several for the SciFi Fantasy panel I served on for the Cybils this year Some were good, some not so good, as is to be expected But so often the substance fails to live up to the prem [...]

    11. The book is described as Nina is 15 And like all girls she ll receive a Governing Council ordered tattoo on her 16th birthday XVI Those three letters will be branded on her wrist, announcing to all the world even the most predatory of men that she is ready for sex Considered easy prey by some, portrayed by the Media as sluts who ask for attacks, becoming a sex teen is Nina s worst fear That is, until right before her birthday, when Nina s mom is brutally attacked With her dying breaths, she reve [...]

    12. This book gave me goosebumps at times, because it is just so frighteningly plausible It s our same culture, just extreme, with the media powerful, a 1984 esque world masquerading as fake fun, fashion, flirtation There were some cool science fiction features, such as the Infinity Machine And some very powerful writing I sat at the window and drew the shapes of the buildings outside Rectangles and squares stacked side by side and up to the sky Neat, orderly, controllable The complete opposite of [...]

    13. I am going to start off by saying I couldn t even finish this book I just couldn t I normally try to finish every book I start, but I ve gotten to the point where if I am not enjoying a book, I shouldn t force myself through it I am just making myself miserable and ruining my reading experience This book was the last straw It pushed me over the edge and I just had to stop.There is not a single thing I liked about this book The writing is mediocre I never once felt like I was being pulled in to t [...]

    14. To put this plain and simple, Julia Karr s XVI did not meet up to my expectations.There were many issues in this book, from the boring thoughts coming from Nina Oberon s head to the hidden lecture we get from Julia Karr herself I m not an avid reader, but it doesn t take one to recognize that there was something wrong with this novel.First off, the story starts for about half the book, just listening to Nina s messed up life from her own perspective Her father, her mother, Ginny, a mysterious ch [...]

    15. I really don t know how to feel about this book I think that the premise is excellent, but there was far too little in terms of explaination, and way too much foreshadowing Nina is on the verge of turning sixteen, which means she will be tattooed with an XVI to show that she is legal and available for sex with any male who wants her Nina is understandably apprehensive, but she tries to hide it because all girls in the future are supposed to LOVE being sluts the constant media advertising being b [...]

    16. I get that this is 140 years in the future, but why did this feel so dumb For one thing, we never found out what happened to create this very superficial, tiered society And I still find it hard to accept It was basically government media fear mongering.Where did the 16 sex teen thing come from Do you honestly expect us to believe that you were able to unite most of the world into large, controlled chunks If space travel is a common thing now, how does shooting coffins into the sky not contribut [...]

    17. I read this one because I thought the premise looked original, which is something I haven t been seeing much of in the much diluted world of dystopian sci fi honestly, it s like right after Twilight was published, when everything was vampires But now it s bad government systems It was a dystopia about the sexual exploitation of women There is so much that could be done here, considering this is actually a legitimate issue in today s world Unfortunately, the execution was bad From the description [...]

    18. My Thoughts I have been reading and dystopian books lately huh We are introduced to Nina who is 15 years old and fast approaching her 16 or sex teen birthday What does this mean It means that basically any guy who wants to, can take advantage of her without any real rules or punishment and she can do what she basically wants sexwise There is no law that says she can t Most girls are looking forward to turning 16, including her best friend, because it signifies being grown up They can go into a [...]

    19. I waffled between a 2 and 3 on this It was an interesting premise, a world where teenage girls are super sexualized and women have less power than they do overall in 2011 I would ve liked the role of women explored And there really was much thought than action When something did happen, it was over in a flash Then back to Nina worrying Or people talking about what there was to worry about.Nina is on the verge of turning 16, when girls are free to have sex Or be asked to have sex It s a high me [...]

    20. XVI is a gritty look at a not so distant future where girls are registered aka tattooed , supposedly for their protection, at the age of 16 Julia deftly handles how the sexualization of girls might play out in this dystopia I quite liked the main character, Nina, who reminded me of at that age She s a jeans and t shirt girl whose best friend sees sex teen as her way out I won t spoil it, but there are some heartbreaking moments A great read I highly recommend XVI

    21. This book made me forget to eat, therefore it is evil I can probably write that first sentence in Latin but that s not the point I went an entire day eating nothing and reading this and I didn t know until late at night when I was so tired that I accidentally deep fried some eggs This book must have some magic in its spine, embedded under its inked words Maybe the cover can perform hypnosis Okay now that would be cool but onto me review If I sound crazy, it s because I am and me like it.Though t [...]

    22. In Nina s world, which is frighteningly similar in some ways to our own, kids not just girls, this is a two way street, folks are raised viewing sex as, well, the closest word to it that I think of, and I know it falls short of what Karr was trying to say, is a goal or rite of passage or recreation This was best displayed in the attitude of Nina s best friend, Sandy, who blindly followed all of the Media s hype about turning sixteen by her dress, which was skimpy at best, her behavior, which deg [...]

    23. Nina is different than most girls her age Instead of looking forward to being 16 and being branded as ready for sex to all the men, she is terrified She never bought the media s habit of shoving sexual readiness down young girl s throats Her mother has always been right by her side doing everything she can, and sacrificing all to ensure that Nina doesn t end up like many sixteen years, dead in a gutter with no one caring one bit However, that all changes when her mother is attacked and just befo [...]

    24. Review posted at Confessions of a Bookaholic totalbookaholicXVI is an amazing story that takes place in a dystopian world in 2150 In this society, filled with strict government control and electronic devices keeping up with each individual, Nina is just one of many teens dealing with day to day life She s almost to the critical age of 16, or sex teen , where teen girls are tattooed with an XVI as a way to show their supposed readiness for sex Girls have very little say in what happens after that [...]

    25. Oh dearI don t seem to be making very good choices in choosing my books latelyYup, it s this again I m afraid This book was literally a hairs inch from being totally pointless I felt like this story just went on and on and fucking on The plot felt flat and hardly anything happened and Nina view spoiler never meets her father after so much shit and hassle about getting that book to him hide spoiler The characters just didn t feel real and all that really happened was view spoiler Nina discovered [...]

    27. Wow This book is really, really complex The plot is so good Zarr did such a good job writing this book to make it look like Nina had no way to make all the problems right, but I was really impressed with how she did it.When I started reading it I thought, Wow, I m not going to like this book very much, because Zarr came up with all these new abbreviations for everything, like PAVs and feLS, I had no idea what they were But as the story progressed and grew I finally figured them out and started t [...]

    28. Every girl gets one An XVI tattoo on the wrist sixteen Media says they are for protection but girls are treated like they are sex teen, legally sexualized, in the future Most girls can t wait, but Nina isn t one of those kinds of girls Her normal world is shattered when her mom is murdered and everything she had once understood about her world is mistaken, including a father that she has always been told was dead It turns out that he is not dead, but a Non conformist and has had to hide from an [...]

    29. An interesting concept that gets bogged down by too many plot threads and not enough details The author has created a future world filled with concepts that would be thought provoking tattoos at 16, sex teens, media controls and obsecure government agencies , but lack too much detail to be thought provoking nothing is fully fleshed out, everything is hinted at in an oh so mysterious way In addition, there were too many plots circling this book an evil stepfather, a mysterious dead mother and a m [...]

    30. This wasn t my biggest problem with the novel, but it made me WTF enough that I ll bring it up first referring to transit transportation vehicles as trannies Seriously Did no one who read or edited this book before publication think, Hey, this might be a bad idea Or was it just an attempt to be edgy Protip using present day pejoratives as futuristic slang is not edgy.My biggest problem with this book was the shoddy worldbuilding I had a hard time becoming emotionally invested in Nina s society a [...]
