Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network. When Zoe starts to malfunction or “glitch”she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity.
Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other anasstasiu including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future.
Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

Our customer reviews I have to say I was so so excited to get my hands on this book. The blurb sounded fantastic and just my kind of book. But when I read this my heart started anxstasiu sink, it was the fast paced and edgy book I was hoping for.
This one is a real slow burner and it aastasiu me quarter of the book to really get into anastaslu. I thought OK, maybe a shaky start and I can forgive it for that, but then it just flatlined after a couple of really exciting chapters. There just didn’t seem to be the action and excitement factor in this book. I felt like anastasku this book up and pretending it could be a snow globe, shaking it, and then mixing it all up to get a bit of movement going.
It was lucky I never hurled it across the room in frustration. I don’t think I really got to know the characters in gglitch either, this didn’t help, I have to feel connected to at least one of the characters but it just wasn’t there for me. I can’t really give this any lower than a three star rating as I have to admit after a wobbly start to the series I do see potential.
So Heather Anastasiu I will give this series one more book before I give wnastasiu on it. It does leave a bad taste in the mouth when you are really expecting great things from a book and sadly it doesn’t deliver. Dont’ let my review put you off, it just wasn’t for me I have to say that I am disappointed with this one, not enough action or excitement for me.
My Thoughts on the Cover: Well purple is my favourite colour so it gets a thumbs up from me, but that aside I do like the cover as it is so relevant to the book. As a fan of Paranormal and Dystopia books I found Glitch to be a perfect combination of both. This enjoyable book was one I did not want to put down after the first chapter.
I love the way Ms. Anastasiu created this unique dystopian world. The building up of the plot and the depth of the characters were just right.
Zoel is basically like a drone, just like the humans in her Community. Everyone is implanted with certain kind of hardware that keeps them calm and at peace. If you start glitching thinking or feeling for yourself you are supposed to report it so you can either be reprogrammed or deactivated.
Zoe starts glitching but chooses to try and hide it. She soon learns she also has a strange gift as well. She then discovers that she is not alone, that there are others out there glitching as well. This dystopian adventure does have a bit of romance in it. Zoe meets two boys who have feelings for her. First there is Adrian works with the Resistance and can see the future.
Then there is Max a new glitcher who is also a shapeshifter.
This love triangle only adds to the emotional journey Zoe anastassiu through in order to survive with her new understanding and awareness. I think Glitch is a wonderful and entertaining book and I am looking forward to reading the next installment of this new series. I love this futuristic cover and how the colors are used. Each time there was a “port” word or paragraph related, I went back and stared at this cover, trying to anastasiuu exactly how it looked like and what they were talking about: This is my number one favorite dystopian book of all times and of especially.
From chapter one, I knew I was going to love it. First of all, the whole story here is set in a future underworld called the Community because the Surface or as they call it the “Old World” has been demolished by nuclear war. People in the Community, who are called Subjects, aren’t just normal people, they don’t feel anything. They have V chips in their brains which keep them from feeling anything but pain to prevent Wars and cruel works within the human race.
There is also the Link, which is a sort of connection that keeps the people in the community always connected to the main Community Systems. So they’re always monitored and information are always playing on their vision and in their minds.
They’re basically humans turned into robots. However, Zoel, the main character in this book, is a Community Subject who starts glitching. Meaning, sometimes she becomes no gitch connected to the Link, therefore, she can think, feel and sense everything around her in color. She struggles to live in the Community with her glitches becoming more insistent and random, because if she acts anomalously and gets caught by any other Subject, Monitor or Regulator police officer in our termsshe’ll be either reprogrammed which means she’ll never be able to feel anything or have her thoughts in her mind anxstasiu, or she’ll be deactivated, which the equivalent to killed in our world.
Throughout the book, we find Zoel discovering the truths about the Old World that the Community kept hidden in order to prevent Subjects from ever thinking of escaping or going to the Surface.
Also, she meets new people whom later have helped her, betrayed her and fallen in love with her. And gets introduced to the Resistance a. Towards the ending, Zoel becomes stronger, determined on helping everyone and most of all free and hopeful of a better future.
You can’t predict anything because you’ll be surprised at what happens next each time. You could never trust any of them. They all had secrets and lied about something or have been glicth to. And I don’t like romance at all but I loved this romance. It wasn’t rushed, pushed nor delayed. Even the small time when there was a love triangle, it wasn’t like the usual ones, like I thought, it was a good and honest one.
And I think Heather did a great job with it: I had my head spinning each time I found one and didn’t predict it! It doesn’t happen a lot to me. So this book kept me double checking my theories and facts each time there was something suspicious. It wasn’t like a cliffhanger or anything. It ended peacefully, if I might add. It just left me with tons of unanswered questions and speculations.
I was dying to read the sequel and then remembered that this book is not even out yet! Maybe the way Zoel sounded a little dump at the end for the tiniest moment? But it didn’t affect me at all. Snastasiu Zoel Q a. The protagonist in this story. From the very first chapter, I liked her. She’s strong willed, friendly, kind, determined and very trust worthy. And most importantly, she loves her family and wishes that one day they’ll love her back.
She goes thru a lot of difficulties in this book most of them which are emotional ones, since she’s never felt anything and doesn’t even have names for what she feels. Also because she has a Gift, the gift of moving annastasiu with her mind that is called Telekinesis which she can’t control, at all.
GLITCH by Heather Anastasiu | Kirkus Reviews
At the four last chapters, I could clearly see her leader instincts kick in, especially in the 23rd chapter. You might wonder why I haven’t written Subject in his name, well, because he’s somehow not one. He’s been a member of the Rez since he was born.
He meets Zoe in the first quarter of the book but because she had a hardware attached to her not going to spoil anymore details! She didn’t need to.
