    _________________________________The Different Girl Review_________________________________Full formatting of this review at link above.Oh gosh, this was pretty bad. Everything I learned about storytelling is apparently wrong because this book has almost no plot, and definitely no resolution. No ending, not even a sad one. I just didn't get it. We are left with only questions, no answers. Some answers you may be able to infer, but with no validation or hint that you are on the right track-what d [...]

    *rubs my temples*Really?YA?Really?Can I say something (with a few choice words)???How the fuck is this YA? I know the four girls--They're not girls. They're just the same, but different.oh watch out.Okay, so I know these four creations or whatever are androids, but they were so. damn. boring. I will never use the word 'boring' again unless the situation/book is exactly like The Different Girl. The freakin'questions? Class time? The, thewhat the hell is it even CALLED?conversations between their [...]

    First off and as usual, it should be noted that I received this book free from GoodReads in a drawing. Despite that typical and abundantly kind consideration my candid feedback resides below.Over the past 20 books or so I've tried with great assiduity to accentuate the positive aspects of the titles that GoodReads is so kind to provide. Until this most recent submission, that mindset has been fairly easy to adhere to. Even the worst book provides an entertaining diversion if looked at in the pro [...]

    Honestly, how do you rate a book like this? I guess the better question would've been how do you write a book like this. This was verbal diarrhea. It literally made no sense at all. For starters what is this book even about? I've read it and I don't even know.Here's the synopsis from Veronika. Caroline. Isobel. Eleanor. One blond, one brunette, one redhead, one with hair black as tar. Four otherwise identical girls who spend their days in sync, tasked to learn. But when May, a very different kin [...]

    I received this book for free through First Reads.Four orphaned girls live on an island after their parents died in a plane crash. The girls are identical in every way with the exception of their hair color: Veronika has red hair, Isobel is blonde, Caroline is a brunette and Eleanor has black hair. They are taught to observe, think, reason, and recognize abstract concepts while remaining obedient and dutiful to Robbert and Irene, their caretakers.Their idyll and isolated lives are disturbed by [...]

    Every so often a book comes along that you struggle to get through. Unfortunately, this was one of thise for me for a few different reasons. I was tempted along the way to just DNF it, but only chose to stick with it because there was a lot hidden from readers that I wanted to see revealed and explained. Needless to say I was not impressed when much of it stayed hidden and I felt like I stuck with the book for no reason.This book really went wrong in two areas for me. First of all, I found it du [...]

    This book was wonderful enough that I stayed up far, far past my bedtime last night so I could finish reading it.I love that this story is told from the point of view of one of four identical girls. Veronika's journey is one of discovery--of who and what she is and where she and her sisters came from. Ultimately, this is a coming-of-age story, but it's complicated when you're a humanoid robot.I also love that the ending isn't a traditionally "happy" one. Instead, it's a hopeful one that continue [...]

    Originally Reviewed on The Book SmugglersOn a small tropical island in the middle of the ocean, Veronika lives with three other girls and two caretakers. The four girls are the exact same size and weight and age, distinguished by their different hair - Isobel with her lemon yellow hair, Caroline with her coconut brown hair, Eleanor with her black hair the color of wet tar, and Veronika with her rust red locks. Every day, Veronika and the other girls go on walks to observe and report back their f [...]

    Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a box full of advanced copy books from a local book store and this was among them. It was one of the first I chose to read because the premise intrigued me. It didn't take much reading to discover that the girls were probably mechanized in some way although at first I wasn't sure if they were android or perhaps cyborg. This book did catch me and hold me (I read it in less than 24 hours) and I did enjoy it, but I was left with so many questions! I loved the [...]

    Truly an imaginative and mysterious piece of storytelling. I was hooked from the beginning. I still have a lot of questions, but I feel satisfied.I really just like how the whole thing was constructed, put together, the way the robots are given life, personality and character. Really entertaining.(view spoiler)[typo pp 226 "it seemed as big as the hole left in door." Should be hole left in the door.pp226 "we do need a handle because our hands are different."I am still trying to imagine what thei [...]

    **SPOILERS**Boring, pointless, weird, and UNCLEARN'T TRY TO FIND A MEANING! IT'S A TRAP!There is none.Pick up another book. Please. Don't torture your brain.So. The first 2/3 of the novel was just the girls doing boring things and watching boring things and making observations about boring things and asking dumb questions. Something like this (no, this is not an actual scene of the novel but it might as well be):George saw a brown ant walking on the ground, carrying a piece of grass. ``Where is [...]

    I won the "bound galley" edition of The Different Girl in a giveaway. What a treat to receive a free book. However, reading The Different Girl was not such a treat. While, Mr. Dahlquist's prose is simple and suited to a tale of science-fiction, his story is ultimately unsatisfying. The tale begins with a confusing narrative; to be fair, as the story builds momentum, some of the murky details see the sunshine. Unfortunately, not all of the obscure elements ever make sense to the reader. Also, hi [...]

    In Gordon Dahlquist’s new novel The Different Girl, Veronika, Caroline, Isobel and Eleanor are four young girls who live on a small island with their two adult caretakers Irene and Robbert. The girls are completely identical aside from the color of their hair: one is blond, one brunette, one red, and one black. They don’t know exactly why they’re on the island; all they’ve been told is that their parents died in a plane crash so Irene and Robbert are raising them there. Each day passes m [...]

    So I picked this book up for three different reasons:1. The cover art2. The interesting sounding plot3. It looked short enough, I though I could finish it pretty quickly.Boy was I wrong about that third one. This book was so frustrating and I could only read about a chapter or two at time because I kept putting it down. I could not read through it straight. There are so many questions through this book and none of them seemed to get answered. Obviously the girls are some sort of robot, but that [...]

    Intriguing but incomplete. This book was all subtext, with no actual plot or conclusion. Some of the narrative, told from the POV of someone ((view spoiler)[a robot (hide spoiler)]) with very limited theoretical understanding of the world, was genius, but I might have to make a "wtf it's just over?" shelf for this book. You never really learn what's going on. Stuff is happening in the background but it doesn't make any sense. There are only questions with no answers. The ending is more of a begi [...]

    Wandering Librarians
    Veronika has lived on an island for as long as she can remember, with three other girls, Caroline, Isobel and Eleanor. Their teachers are Irene and Robbert. They observe thing. They are warned to never, ever go near the water. One day, pieces of a shipwreck wash up on shore, and along with them a girl, May. With May's coming, Veronika realizes just how different she and the other girls are, and how dangerous the outside world can be.This waswhoa. There is no way to talk about this without lots o [...]

    SIMILAR TALES:(view spoiler)[(hide spoiler)]THE DIFFERNT GIRL (TDG) seems aimed towards kids/tweens/younger teens, and I'm a bit lenient when rating this level. TDG has some futuristic elements, an island setting, an interesting premise/mystery, and a unique viewpoint. However, it is likely too light a tale for some readers over age 15 or so. So -- a 3+ star read for the younger crowd, but probably not so exciting for readers who want more action and details, or who demand that everything is exp [...]

    In the beginning of this book, the reader is introduced to four girls, identical except for hair color, who live on an island with a man and woman who adopted them. They only know that the plane they were on with their parents crashed on the island, and the man and woman have been raising them. Later on, another girl washes ashore. But she's different from the first four. The original four try to figure out why she's so different from them.This book had a lot of potential - I would have enjoyed [...]

    3.5/4My favorite so far of the cyborg/clone books. And guess what? There is NO romance. NONE at all in this book. Which leads me to think that marketing drastically screwed up the cover. The story is told from 1st person POV by one of four clones. What I liked best about this book is how well the author was able to give a voice to what is basically a machine. How, even though Veronika never acknowledges that she is not human, you eventually figure out that not only is she a robote's a rather clu [...]

    What grabbed my attention about The Different Girl was definitely (and obviously) the cover. I was intrigued by the plot and I even grew to love the characters. At one point in the story (I won't say which), I couldn't help but gasp out loud (on an airplane) out of love for a character. Dahlquist did a great job of making the giving just enough information in regards to the characters and whether or not they could be trusted. I give him an A+ for character development for sure.I will say that th [...]

    Veronika lives on an island under the care of Robbert and Irene, along with Caroline, Eleanor and Isobel. They differ only in the color of their hair-- even their thoughts are strictly regimented. When another girl, May, washes up on the shore, it makes them all question their existence. What was May's life like? Why was she under the care of her Uncle Will and his friend Kat on a boat? From whom are they hiding? What's different about her? What is the deal with Veronika and her companions? Why [...]

    I like books that make me think. And this one left my mind reeling! Some other reviewers have pointed out that they feel their questions were unanswered, but I think that's part of the point of the book. Just like the characters had to discover answers and put together bits of information, the reader has to deduce what has happened and what will happen. The author gives you just the right amount of information to be able to draw your own conclusions. In this book, a set of four girls live on an [...]

    The yellow hair is cool but Isobel was so not a featured character, sup with that cover? This book forces you to think about every detail of life and how you can walk the same path over and over again but experience something new. I was waiting for something cool to happen the whole time. I did keep flipping the page thinking, "this is going to get better." I feel "The Different Girl" would be a good book for Middle School students to read and write a report about. There are a lot of things to d [...]

    "You will have questions. You will receive some answers. You will learn to think differently." Ummmm. Yeah, I have to questions. No, I did not receive enough answers. Think differently? More like turn my brain to mush! Such a cool idea: computer-type girls who evolve and learn But, what was the point? I'm left with too many unanswered questions! Odd. Very odd. I'm not saying this was bad. but, it's very strange and I could have gotten past that had enough been explained. Maybe that was the autho [...]

    The different girl is a different kind of book that is too sci-fi for my liking. I can see what the writer is trying too hard to tell. Too many words to describe things that could use with less words. Too many unresolved things at the end of the page. Makes you wonder why bother reading if there's no end and beginning but a concept of human conditioning.

    A human girl is stranded on an island with a few AI girls and their maker. It’s a neat little read that will have you pondering the nature of friendship, and wondering even more about the enigma that is AI.

    Problems are meant to be solved, questions are meant to be answered and differences are made to be fixed, though what if some differences can’t be controlled? The book The Different Girl written by Gordon Dahlquist has built in many questionable factors which make the reader think differently. I have never been a big believer in science fiction novels but there are many people who are and would love this book. The narrator Veronica lives on an island with her three sisters (Caroline, Isobel an [...]

    “At Eleanor's feet lay a fresh smear of dirt and grass, which might have come from Irene's sandal or Robert's sneaker if it hadn’t been topped by the dusty dots of small round toes.” Eleanor, Veronika, Caroline, and Isobel - one blond, one brunette, one redhead, and one with hair black as tar but otherwise identical girls, live on an island with Irene and Robert who with teach them and take care of them. Each night Irene puts them to sleep by pushing the spot behind their ears with a click [...]

    This is what I wait for. This is why I slog through YA series after series, author after author, mundane retelling after mundane retelling: to find a story that makes me go "SQUEE!!!" (That's an overexcited happy sound to those of you who have never owned a guinea pig or chinchilla.) Oh my, oh my. The Different Girl by Gordon Dahlquist had me so confused I was writhing in literary anticipation. I got the gist of what was going on only after I got over my pig-headed determination that the "differ [...]

    I received a galley copy of this story through GiveawayI was excited to have won something! I picked this up right after I finished a well-written book, which was a mistake as the simplistic tone of the writing in this book put me off immediately, so I put it down. I did pick it up the next day and was actually caught in the story, because the premise is good and I wanted to learn more. I finished this book in an afternoon and evening because I was intrigued and kept reading because I was sure [...]
