Comments I Am Margaret

  • Erin Cupp

    Edgy, passionate, thought-provoking, and showcasing the best side of what true romance should be without ever even getting close to sappiness, I Am Margaret delivers a tantalizing, stinging punch. Highly recommended. The Sabbath Rest Book Talk crew talks about it at youtu/WAgTq0ul1qY


  • Steven R. McEvoy

    Incredible read, riveting! Could not put it down.Full review Sometimes it really pays to follow authors you really like. Regina Doman recently posted about this book, and it caught my attention. To be honest I had never heard of the author or the series. I am so glad it did. This is one of the best books I have read this year and the best new Catholic fiction author I have discovered in years! This book was incredible.I literally could not put this book down. Even though I had to be up early to [...]


  • Joseph Wetterling

    The beginning was a punch in the gut. It was hard to get through -- and I mean that in the best possible way. The ending went by in a flash, and I paced the room reading the penultimate chapter. Everything in between was alternatively moving, exciting, and sad in turns. It moved along well.Margaret pays real prices - emotionally, physically, and socially (for instance, with Jon) for the choices she makes. She doesn't always make the best choices, but she makes understandable poor choices at time [...]

    I love this book, but then, I would!


  • Leslea Wahl

    This is an amazing book, truly one of the best that I’ve read this year. This Dystopian story is about a teen named Margaret (Margo) and her boyfriend/fiancé Bane. They live in a world that is full of evil and only the most productive members of society are wanted or needed, the others are basically recycled and used for parts to help the more worthy citizens. Margo has always struggled with math and doesn’t pass her sorting exam and is sent to a facility where she will ultimately be killed [...]


  • Carol Kean

    In an America of the near future, belief in God illegal. "Deny the Deity" is the law, and those who refuse to utter those four little words, "There is no God," face a horrific, slow death by dismemberment. Body parts seem to be in such demand, people deemed imperfect are "sorted" out of the population at age 18. Incredibly, a smart girl with one weakness (she has no aptitude for math) is doomed. She can go underground and hide or face her sorting, knowing she'll fail and end up in a facility tha [...]


  • Ana

    I got this book from a giveaway.And I’m so happy I did because this book is great. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did. The more into the book that I got the more I liked it and the pace of the book was also good. I can’t wait for The tree most wanted.I really liked the writing style, it was easy to read and the fonts and font sizes also made it easy. The font wasn’t to big ant it wasn’t too small. I liked how we were told about how the sorting and everything happened thro [...]


  • Carolyn

    This was my first foray into a dystopian world - one with a Catholic underground, a brave and reckless hero, and a strong and virtuous heroine. Well-drawn characters and enough tension and action to keep you turning pages long after you should have set the book down. I don't believe my heart has ever thumped like that during a novel's climax. Can't wait for book two!The author is a fellow member of the Catholic Writers Guild.


  • Elevetha

    Sounds like The Hunger Games meets Unwind. But Catholic. And a dystopian retelling of St. Margaret Clitherow's life. Could be cool.Chesterton Press to re-print this month - with a better cover!


  • Carol Feldman

    ugh. what an annoying book. I'd rather read the back of my cereal box


  • Elizabeth Hajek

    "I am Margaret" is the story of a young woman in a future society with extreme population and belief control. Yes, yes, I know, "another dystopian novel starring a heroine?" That's what I thought too. But bear with me - this book is worth trying.There are a lot of books that put a "Religious" spin on whatever genre is in vogue (although I haven't seen the paranormal romance genre tackled in Christian Lit). It would be easy to label this as a "Catholic Hunger Games" but this would be unfair to bo [...]


  • Susan Peek

    Within the first couple pages, I was completely captivated by this gripping Catholic dystopian novel. The story takes place in a futuristic society in Britain, where "flawed" citizens are weeded out by a process called The Sorting when they turn eighteen years old. Margaret, the heroine (who is wonderfully characterized!), is nearly good enough to pass, but not quite. As the story progressed and I learned the ghoulish fate that awaited her, chills iced my spine. For Margaret, along with dozens o [...]


  • Theresa Linden

    I absolutely loved this book and all the books in the series and will definitely re-read them. Turner presents a dark futuristic society where not all people are considered equal. Those with imperfections, no matter how insignificant, are kept around only so that they can provide “parts” for other people. The entire series is fun to read, especially because Turner does such a fantastic job developing characters. Margaret is a strong main character with high morals and who thinks things throu [...]


  • Cynthia

    Although I don't typically read dystopians that are this intense, I appreciate this novel and the author's skill in writing it. Although the setting is a fictional future, horrors committed against believers in God of the Bible are reminders of horrors committed against them today. Parents, be aware of this for the sensitive teen reader. Also, I'd recommend talking to teens about the literal sleeping together of the main character and a male companion. No sex, but they had to pretend they were h [...]


  • Jennifer L.

    EXCELLENT first book of a captivating seriesThis is the first book in an EXCELLENT series. It is similar to the Hunger Games in that it is a dystopian future fictional world in which children's lives are taken by the government and used, but even more believable. It is set in the near-future, maybe 50 years from now, I think. It is worse than Hunger Games as far as what the government actually does, and the massive scale of deaths. To me, it is far scarier to consider; this definitely sounds lik [...]


  • Klaudia

    *I've won this book from a competition!* Review:One word- WOW!I have definitely enjoyed this book although at times, I was slightly disgusted when the Conscious Dismantlement was fully described. description! From the first few pages I was already hooked on the book. The pace of the story is good; it's not too slow or too fast. I really like the characters in the book. Couple 1: Margaret and BaneThis couple is actually platonic so every reader is fond of them being together because,let's be hon [...]


  • Katy

    I’m so used to characters in Catholic novels to be flat and not very diverse, but I Am Margaret went above and beyond my expectations. A female character who has guts and is excellent at writing, a non-Catholic guy who will stop at nothing to save his fiancee, and a blind boy with a secret who ends up in a dorm full of girls. There’s quite a bit of diversity, and it made me happy to have not only strong main characters, but also minor characters with strong personalities and differences.Anot [...]


  • Rosemary Lauryn

    This book was good. I liked the dystopian society premise and the idea that Catholics would be hunted down for their faith since it's happened hundreds of times in history before and it looks like that is where our society is headed. The writing was crisp and intriguing and the story really pulls you in. However, I thought the idea that people would get "recycled" after their sorting just because they failed a test (math in Margaret's case) was a little extreme, and I really had to suspend my di [...]


  • Anne-Marie

    Margaret and Bane are in love. They want to get married, but Margaret is in grave danger. Not only is she part of the underground network of Believers, but she has also failed her Sorting. Now she is imprisoned in a compound where eventually she will be dismantled. This means that all her organs will be removed for transplantation into others. Margaret, however, has no intention of waiting passively for the day to arrive. She is on a mission to defend the truth at all costs. Even if it means fac [...]


  • Allie

    Exceptionally well done. Eoin Colfer was right: this book definitely had a 'Hunger Games-like' feel. Though in my opinion, it is better written and has stronger, more likable characters. The author has created a chilling but fascinating dystopian world and peopled it with fleshed out characters. Margo was a truly impressive heroine wielding her wit and will to survive. It's been a while since I was inspired by a character. Bane made me smile and cheer him on, Jonathan impressed me and the Major [...]


  • Monica

    Very rarely do I come across a Catholic/Christian book that has me in such suspense that I literally think of nothing else until I finish it! I read quite a bit of Catholic fiction, and this book is a rare gem among the genre. Corinna Turner has a beautifully unique writing style--think G.K. Chesterton meets Suzanne Collins--that cleverly intersperses Catholic theology with a badass plot and characters!If reading a religious themed suspense novel with strong protagonists is right up your alley,t [...]


  • Nicole

    It's a good thing this book was amazing, because twenty dollars is a lot to pay for a paperback. But one should be careful when one starts this book, lest one be unable to put it down when one should really be doing homework for college. This is one of the best books I've read all year.I watched a video where a booktuber was ranting about the things that bug her, and one of those things she complained about was books being compared to The Hunger Games just because they're dystopian novels. I don [...]


  • Ruth Paszkiewicz

    If you mixed up '1984', 'The Hunger Games' and 'Quo Vadis' together you might get an idea of 'I Am Margaret'. Set in a dystopian future Europe in which those deemed least useful are literally recycled to sustain the rest of the population, and in which opinions and beliefs are rigidly monitored by a manipulative and ruthless government, Margaret of the title fights back in a unique way.This book is brutal. no punches are pulled in the ever present dangers faced by the characters. Although the th [...]


  • Emma Turner

    A really fantastic debut from this author. The characters are so well drawn and the society just draws you in. A fantastic take and a unique take of the dystopian society.

  • Emily

    I liked this, despite some fairly odd aspects of the plot. The writing was good, I liked the main character, and I liked her main love interest.Things I didn't particularly like - the love triangle. Man, those are so last century. I just wish that someone would write a proper dystopian novel without them (thank goodness for Divergent, but everyone else, buck up your ideas please). Another thing was the whole (view spoiler)[let's have Margarete write a book (hide spoiler)] angle. (view spoiler)[D [...]


  • M

    So this was not my kind of book. It's a catholic alternative to mistopian teen fiction. I don't really care for dystopian teen fiction, so I have to admit that my lowish rating of this book is very subjective. That being said, if you happen to be into that kind of thing, than I think this book is a great choice. Basically, this girl, Margaret, lives in a world where the imperfect get sent to a camp where they are farmed for their organs. Unfortunately for Margaret, she has a math learning disord [...]


  • Ange

    This is a modern dystopian story based on the life of St Margaret Clitherow. If you are a fan of young adult dystopian novels, but wanted something with a little more hope infused in it, then this is the story for you. In this story, faith in God has been outlawed, and those deemed less than perfect are "reassigned" to be killed and their "parts" to be parceled out to extend the life of others. This is a very hard novel to read, especially with the current news cycle, and if you know about St Ma [...]


  • Tanya

    If you loved Unwind, then you'll love I Am Margaret. The blurb from Eoin Colfer states it "like The Hunger Games," but it's more like Hunger Games meets Unwind meets Catholicism. Right from the start, you learn about Conscious Dismantling and Sorting, nothing held back. A love story, an escape story, a story of daring belief, the Undergroundl keep one engaged in this adventure novel and series that smack dab of a reality too close to admit. A must read YA fiction novel for all. I cannot wait to [...]


  • Forrest's Girl

    This book could have been so much better if it hadn't included so much bad language. I loved the Catholic theme to it, however. Three stars is due to the scattered profanity that I felt could have been avoided in this type of YA book.
