Giveaway: The Chaos by Rachel Ward

A special thanks goes to the awesome team over at Scholastic for hosting this giveaway.  I have one hardcover copy of Numbers and The Chaos to giveaway to one lucky winner.  Giveaway details are listed below .  You can visit the book’s website and read Chapter 1  of The Chaos here.

Synopsis (Product Description):

Ever since she was child, Jem has kept a secret: Whenever she meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. The two plan a trip to the city. But while waiting to ride the Eye ferris wheel, Jem is terrified to see that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today’s number. Today’s date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem’s world is about to explode!

Synopsis (Product Description):

When he was a little boy, Adam learned about the numbers. The first ones he saw were Jem’s. That was how he knew she was going to die. Adam has more than inherited his mother’s curse: When he looks in someone’s eyes, he not only sees the date of their death…he feels the searing, shocking pain of it. Since Jem died, Adam has lived by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But when rising tides flood the coast, they return to London. The city is an alien, exciting, frightening place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can’t help but clock how many people’s numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year’s Day. What chaos awaits the world? Can he and Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the “twenty-sevens”?

    +1 I think people ‘cheat’ death everyday without consequence. Events unfold all the time that move us along or slow us down so we missed the piano falling (or whatever). Because when all is said and done, we don’t avoid it in the end. (Pun – sorry).

    Sure people escape death everyday without even knowing it, but I don’t think they would be haunted by it…unless maybe they actually realzed that they had just barely cheated death. ^_^

    I think you can cheat death, people do it all the time, if you change one simple thing, it can be the difference between life and death.

    I don’t believe you can be haunted by death, if a person was supposed to be saved by you, I guess that’s also something fated to happen.

    I don’t believe in the Final Destination theory… but I think it is fun to read books that relate to that concept. :)

    Question:
    Hm, I guess I’m sort of half and half. People cheat death on an everyday basis, I suppose. I’m a firm believer in chain reactions. It all depends on how things happen. But I don’t think death “haunts” anyone. At least, I hope not. 8O

    That is really a loaded question, because if you save someone that was mean to die, on the flipside maybe you were supposed to save them so they wouldn’t die. I think death has enough victims to choose from, it doesn’t really make sense. It would mean that everyo move you made was pre-determined and that free will did not even exist.

    I don’t believe in the Final Destination theory. I do believe a person has a certain day to die and will die on that date. It doesn’t matter what extraordinary measures may be taken, if it’s your day to die, you’ll die. If it isn’t your day, you’ll live because the work you are on earth to do has not yet been completed.

    I have only heard of this theory just now, but I am leaning toward No. It just doesn’t sit right with me. Perhaps reading the books will change my mind? I would love to read both of these, and thank you so much for offering this giveaway.

    Nope. If it was “meant to be” then by that… it would have happened. Plus I’m not that fatalistic. While I believe that there are paths, I do not believe that it is predestined. We make our own choices and own them. :)

    I’m not sure about it, I won’t go to a fortune teller just because I don’t want to know if something will or will not happen to me. Kinda scares me so I don’t want to know. My Dad had said to me one day everyone is a candle and when your candle length burns up, lights out for you. It was very funny!

    No. If you are able to not die it just means that you get to live longer, not that you’ve knocked the forces of life and death off kilter. Eventually, everybody dies, it’s random and has no connection to some pre arranged timeline.

    I don’t believe in destiny, period. I believe that we are in control of and create our own outcomes in life. If I didn’t believe that, then not a single choice I make would matter and I can’t imagine living a life where I believed that. I don’t think that there is a death to thwart.

    I tweeted about this giveaway!

    I’m going against the grain and saying yes, I do believe in it. I think there has to be a certain balance kept to the human equation. If you save one soul, another will be taken one way or another. By saving that soul you could very possibly set off a chain of events that would instead take someone not on death’s list. It’s the same equation that belies the fact: for every action there is a reaction.

    Can you cheat death? Yes, but at what cost? (Hugs)Indigo

    +1 I’m not sure what I think. I do feel that if it is your time to go then it will happen. But I also think that other peoples choices could influence your life/death. Great question to think about.

    No. Because that would mean free will has nothing to do with things.
    Every decision we make, every action by others, it all changes the direction of our lives all the time.
    I do believe our bodies have an age limit(perfectly healthy people go to sleep at night and just never wake up)but anything else(accidents, disease and such)are all avoidable with the right choices by the right people.

    I believe in Fate, if someone’s time it’s here and someone else takes it away, Fate will find a way to get even.
