    1. This was a really heartfelt book about grief, family, and art And if we can all take a moment to appreciate how bad that pun was That d be good THANKS Moving fooooorward So while I did think this was a nice book, it kind of lacked depth for me The characters seemed super one dimensional and it had such a slow quiet tone that I felt a bit lulled to sleep Which isn t a bad thing, per se, I just wanted from the book.It s mostly about Adam, who s 15 and very quiet and draws a lot And also about Wil [...]



    2. Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.I was really intrigued by Out of Heart by Irfan Master when I first heard about it There have been a few YA books that deal with heart transplants, but for the most part, they are romances focusing on the grief of a girl losing her boyfriend, and slowly finding love again in the guy who now has his heart With Out of Heart, however, it s the story of how a boy, Adam s grandfather dies and donates his heart, which goes to a man William, and how William aff [...]



    3. Want to see me talk about books Check out my Youtube Channel Bexnbookx he draws it as he sees it and not necessarily as it should be I received a free copy of this book from Allen Unwin on behalf of Bonnier in exchange for an honest review Out of Heart was heartfelt and covered important topics such as grief, racism and organ donation, but the slow pacing, and plot fell short for me This story follows Adam, a young boy with a sister who cannot speak, a Mother who works two jobs, and a Father tha [...]


    4. I love that the family is a Pakistani Muslim family living in England I loved the premise However, add 200 pages to this book and it would have been much well developed This story, as it stands, was completely underdeveloped which stops it from packing a emotional punchSO William was not a teenager I read 200 pages about him and after reading reviews I realised he was an old man That makes so much sense However, it also shows that he was not written well if he read like a teenager.


    5. Originally posted on albainbookland 2017 04As soon as I got this book, I knew it was going to be something special, and I was not wrong at all What a beautifully written story This is not a very long book, it can definitely be read in a couple of evenings, and the plot is quite simple but somehow, it really got to me It revolves around Adam and his family They have just lost their grandparent and learned that he donated his heart, so imagine their surprise when the person who is now living with [...]


    6. I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewOut of Heart was a story of loss, love and acceptance The family dynamic of this story was lovely, and the friendship between Adam and William was something I kept wanting to read I was invested in the plot, although at times it didn t fully hold my concentration, hence only a 4 star rating However, I think it is an important book to read, and I especially loved that there was a POC narrator I recommend this book [...]


    7. I REALLY liked this book I don t really read any of this genre however I felt it covered everything and I also thought it was this books downfall, some parts I didn t understand and some of it I thought was unnecessary and didn t help the story line I didn t like the fact where is focused on the meaning then the actions It made the book feel like rushed, the scenes and moods changed dramatically across one page Then there was some actions that should have been high on importance but it was thro [...]





    8. I received a free proof copy of this book from the publishers via CILIP s Youth Libraries Group Out of Heart is an absorbing, bittersweet story of family and friendship It starts out with the loss of a loved one, and Irfan Master works quickly but sensitively through his characters grief and guilt, leading into a journey of healing and growth In another author s hands, it might have ended up feeling heavy and bleak, but as it stands, it is a hopeful and uplifting story, even through some difficu [...]


    9. 3 5.This story, which I devoured within two hours, was pleasantly surprising With its realistic characters who experience some truly difficult moments aid in making it such a delightful book to read The simplicity of the plot is also easy to appreciate There s no unnecessary entanglements or chapters shoved in to make up a word count It s just a lovely, breezy book that touches on some of the painful topics in life Death, organ donation, racism, friendship, love and poverty are just the start H [...]


    10. Really liked the character of Adam and the very real struggles he goes through The cultural issues are rendered well and my favourite bits involved the way Adam tried to make sense of the world through his exploration of language and the various heart related quotes facts A very enjoyable read


    11. It is not surprising that Out of Heart by Irfan Master has been chosen for the Carnegie Medal long list It is a poignant story with believable characters who resonate in the reader s heart because of the power of Irfan s metaphors and similes The narrative is cyclical and skilfully crafted around the central motifs of the myth of Icarus and the fascinating mystery of the human heart This is enhanced by the brilliant use of word play, streams of consciousness, evocative imagery and the intertextu [...]


    12. This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Adam is the darkness, joined only to the rest of the world by a thread, bound within his own drawings and head, barely speaking His sister doesn t speak, and neither does his mother or grandfather After his grandfather dies and donates his heart to William, William becomes a fixture in Adam s house and life.This novel felt disjointed and fast Somehow, [...]


    13. Check out my full review HERE Thank you to Hot Key Books publishing for sending me a copy of this novel in exchange for a full review This was an interesting novel and it was much different than what I was expecting before going into it The novel tells the story of Adam, a teenager with a passion for drawing who lives with his mum and sister and of William, a man without family who has received the heart of Adam s recently deceased Grandfather The novel had such a unique plot and although I enjo [...]


    14. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book from the publisher through a giveaway My first impression was a bit of coverlove I think the cover design is really eye catching and appealing although why a sun design instead of a heart The synopsis had me intrigued and I bumped it up my tbr list because I was really interested to see what the story was like I was not disappointed It was thoroughly enjoyable and easy to devour It is quite a short and easy read I read it in one evening The plot [...]


    15. Ugh I am sooo disappointed in this book Have you ever physically thrown a book when you finish it I hadn t either until today but it was so frustratingly bad The writing style was irritating and repetitive The story as a whole was slow moving and unrealistic, with the ending being incredibly rushed and anti climatic The author clearly tried to add depth to the story and make it a really enlightening and emotional book but it didn t work at all sadly I found most of the characters quite irritatin [...]


    16. I don t know why but I was expecting this to be a story about two boys, but it s about a boy and a man, which changed the whole dynamic of the book for me.I really liked Adams story and really felt for him with everything he went through, I was expecting to feel the same with William, bit he just felt a bit flat to me The ending felt rushed and sudden, and I got annoyed at how the characters spoke to each other, I also didn t like how characters were introduced and then just appeared once or twi [...]


    17. I loved this book It is a sensitively told story about William who gets a donated heart The heart was donated by Adam s grandfather and William feels increasingly drawn to the family Visiting them one day, he meets Adam a teenager who desperately misses his grandfather and resents the fact that his heart now lives in William and his little sister Farah who is a selective mute Their mother welcomes William into the family, and Adam has to work out his grief and guilt guilt because he feels he is [...]


    18. Not too sure what to say about this one Something didn t click with it, maybe I didn t get the characters I definitely didn t get William s age I thought he was Adam s age, a teenager Then I thought he might be early twenties I was thinking why did Adam take him to PARENT S evening when William was not much older than him and all the teachers were okay with it I liked the play with words and the facts about hearts And also the message about race, family and community I think my favourite charact [...]


    19. I enjoyed this book Is was an easy read with interesting characters It s a pretty slow paced book, designed to be deep and make you think than to be entertaining, I think I found when I got into reading it I could easily keep reading chapter after chapter, but if I put the book down it wasn t the sort of book to make you go I can t wait to keep reading and find out what happens next , so it could take me a while to come back to it A very emotional book with some really heartbreaking parts.


    20. One heart linking two people, the recipient and the grandson of the man who donated it This is a novel about connection and what defines a family It also deals with trauma and how it can reverberate throughout a family I enjoyed it the characters of Adam , William and Yasmin were great and well thought out however I do feel the end was a little melodramatic and slightly rushed and an event towards the end didn t need to happen at all in my opinion.


    21. Irfan_MasterToo many literary gems fall on the wayside, and I am hoping that Out of Heart by Irfan Master will not be one of them.This is a instant modern classic which should be introduced to the academic curriculum.A beautifully written tale of a family in mourning see their life unexpectedly changed and their load lightenedr a little while at least.Absolutely fantastic piece that everyone should read.Full review up soon.


    22. This was a really quick read, I finished half of during a three hour train ride My plans of reading the second half on the way back were thwarted by a head ache though.I don t really know what else to say about this, other than that it was really unusual at least compared to the other books on my shelves and I really enjoyed it.


    23. The story of Adam and how he makes friends with the recipient of his grandfather s heart I liked the characters in the book, particularly the younger sister who doesn t speak but still makes herself understood perfectly well The setting is realistic but the writing is poetic and lyrical Very moving.


    24. This book is actually so heart warming and I love it It shows how different people cope with emotions and how they can tell the world how they re feeling It also shows how everybody sees the world differently It s honestly such a beautiful story.
