    2. truly extraordinary, beautiful and quietly heartbreaking What a stunning book with an ending that took my breath away I will be thinking about this book for a long time So very highly recommended Aussie YA does not get much better than this 3 full review to come

    3. There s no doubt Wild is a capital A Amazing writer I loved spending an afternoon with her words I was set to give this book 5 stars until around the 75% mark I justah, the twist really did not work for me I found the ending a bit too saccharine for my tastes it felt too far from real life, and the first half had me expecting a true to life, gritty read There s hopeful and there s too good to be true I found this book to be the latter I couldn t suspend disbelief.That said, the writing is specta [...]

    4. Margaret Wild s writing is really lovely and poetic, and the opening of The Vanishing Moment is strong However, the third person point of view lacks immediacy and ultimately the twist felt too awkwardly juxtaposed with the realistic beginning Intriguing concept but it felt like this novel was trying to be too many things at once, and ultimately did none of them completely successfully.

    5. The Vanishing Moment by Margaret Wild is set in Sydney and a fictional coastal town called Shelley Beach, south of Sydney The story revolves around Arrow, Marika, and to a lesser degree, Bob.Despite being written in third person, I found myself connecting with the characters immediately Arrow has finished high school but doesn t know what she wants to do She spends her days at home, or visiting her elderly next door neighbour, she spends her nights sleepwalking Marika lives at home, and is an ar [...]

    6. In just 182 pages, Margaret Wild manages to weave such a heart wrenching and believable story, it s sure to stay on your mind for a very long time.The Vanishing Moment was not at all what I expected it to be I never thought an author could string such memorable prose in such a short book, but Wild did just that The book alternates between three characters Bob, Arrow and Marika but not once did I want to skip ahead because they each had such honest stories to tell I will admit that I was thorough [...]

    7. Can t write anything coherent Need to read a happy book and find a happy place sob Updated 26 09 13 Margaret Wild has written two other YA novels, both in verse This new one is prose, and her use of language is just as assured, just as beautiful.There are three narrators in this book Arrow, Marika and Bob For the majority of the book, the two girls live separate lives Arrow is already in pain, not really living, just barely functioning and not quite clear why she lacks purpose and has no sense o [...]

    8. Beware This comment turned into review contains a spoiler I can imagine how The Vanishing Moment would appeal to readers who are less wimpy than I am, considering the beautiful writing, the multiple POVs and the crafty way those three stories run into one But, as I am concerned, the story is too realistic and thus much too bleak and dark My heart doesn t survive an overdose of shitty parents.And in this particular case the shittiness in the parental department came in 3D no, 4D, actually and in [...]

    9. The Vanishing Momentby Margaret WildISBN 978 1 74331 590 3Allen Unwin, 2013, 184ppThose of you young adults who have enjoyed Margaret Wild s verse novels, Jinx and One Night will find that she keeps a similar pace and economic wording in this prose novel Also she adds an element of magic realism with the concept of parallel existences for some of her characters, a concept that mediates the shock and grief for both them and me as I read and should give you to talk about in the endings yes, the p [...]

    10. Arrow, Bob and Marika three very different people whose paths crossed in the small town of Shelly Beach Each of them have their own personal misfortune which has shaped who they are.Arrow has finished high school but now has no idea what she wants from life Her mind keeps taking her back to her childhood and the aftermath of a heartbreaking tragedy Marika is grieving and can t find a way to fix something she lost and Bob well he s a bit of a mystery I don t want to go into too many details and r [...]

    11. This is a wonderful combination of real life situations with 2 young women, who have finished school but who have had life changing things happen to them Wild comes up with the idea that if either had accepted the Interchange and changed the awful circumstances what would the consequences be Difficult to put into words, but an idea that I have been thinking about since I read the book.Thought provoking and clever, this is not your usual paranormal story with romance at its centre.

    12. Challenging Real life people with real life problems Kidnapping Mother murders three kids Boy physically abused by stepfather Sinesthesia Memory Alternate reality Terrible cover Only read it because I was given it by a colleague Stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it.

    13. I was really having a hard time with this novel at the start, but it disappeared a bit along the way Some parts of the story was good, and some of the characters was lovely, but it still wasn t enough for me.

    14. Margaret Wild shows her brilliance in this short tense novel The story is told by three protagonists who all come together in a small town on the NSW south coast However there is a twist in their stories and futures.

    15. An intriguing story about three teenagers damaged by life and the ways in which they handle their pain.

    16. Three lives intersect Each decision one of them makes will lead to a different future Intriguing novel with many literary links left me pondering

    17. AMAZING BOOK, till the last 50 pages The end feels so rushed, like they should have added another 50 100 pages I m not sure how I feel

    18. This is a coming of age story involving three main protagonists It is thought provoking and both sad and joyful at times The story s theme resembles that of the Butterfly Effect movies.
