Table of contents



However, they open up and we see the life of a Returner through the grandfather-like Douglas and teenage Emily. Now, I liked Douglas although he was way too philosophical at times. But Emily. To start, she seemed to have hinted to have had a relationship with Will's past self. But nothing ever came out, I have no idea if it was true or not, although I doubt there was something. I liked the way it was written. There was never a point where the action and tension dipped, you always want to know who, what, why, how.

Although the continuous use of short sentences could be annoying, I liked it. It made it much more interesting and different to read to me.

The Returners

I liked also how Gemma Malley hasn't given everything away at the beginning and made it so what you think will happen halfway through takes a completely different direction by the end. It's definitely not a book to read to relax and feel good about yourself but it is worth a read for those that like dystopian fiction.

It's not as good and well-rounded as her previous trilogy but for those that are new to Gemma Malley or new to the dystopian genre, it's a good read and enjoyable despite the number of spelling mistakes I found while reading hewas, just to name a few , one slight pet hate of mine and I'm sure others. This is a worth while read for those that haven't heard of Gemma Malley before or are new to the dystopian genre but I would read this and then continue straight on to The Declaration series.

The idea is a good and rather puzzling interesting one, I'm just not sure if it was executed in the right way yet. Verdict: Worth a look but not as good as The Declaration by far. However, Gemma Malley does give some interesting things to think about which I think shall stay with me for a while now. I shall leave you with one of them: '"But nothing Douglas.

Everyone has a choice. All the time. You can walk through a door or decide not to. You can let your past dictate your future or you can throw two fingers up at it and walk away. View 1 comment.

The Returners is a dark and twisted story of a not too distant future. Will is an insular character who has spent years trying to shut out his emotions. The Returners has two strands running through it. Firstly there is Will and his troubled past. He is struggling with his life, his toxic relationship with his father, his anger at the loss of his mother and his own self-imposed loneliness. Then th The Returners is a dark and twisted story of a not too distant future. Then there is the society in which Will lives. Britain in is an angry place. Malley explores what might happen if the recession goes so deep that we enter economic depression and the conflict that this ignites in people as they look for someone to blame for their suffering.

The questions and social conflicts that Malley explores in The Returners are ones that I often find myself thinking about. What gives us a right over territorial boundaries? How can we show our angry unemployed workforce that immigration is a positive force for our country? And does our country really belong to us anyway? I loved that The Returners probed some of these political issues without ever feeling like I was having a lesson in politics.

The Returners VGM

Back to the character of Will and how he ties these themes into a story which also explores the notion of reincarnation. Will has dark and torturous dreams. Ever since Will can he remember, he has been seeing people that have a vague familiarity. He calls them freaks. He keeps it locked up tight inside. The two parts of this story weave together in a twisting tale of violence and corruption. The Returners is certainly not a feel good read. It is almost a study of inner darkness. Yet it is an important book. It is contemporary, brave and compelling.

This book is for readers who like their reading gritty and challenging. You know what sucks the first half of this book is great and then it kind of took a nose-dive and I lost interest and no longer cared for the characters which sucked, yeah this isn't the first Gemma Malley book I've read and this book sounded so good but I was a little disappointed with this book as it had so much potential for being a great book.

But it was way too short and it was rushed.

A summery for The Returners: Will Hodge is being followed by people who insist they know him, though he does not remember them, and his terrifying dreams have begun spilling over from night-time into day. He is also a witness in a murder trial and is coping with the death of his mother. Life couldn't get much more difficult. Or could it? Slowly, Will discovers that his past is not all that he thought it was, and the people following him aren't really strangers.

They are Returners, and they have an important message about some truths Will has forgotten - terrible truths he may wish he had never known I will continue to buy Gemma Malley's books but yeah I did feel a little let by this book which is sad really. Mar 28, Stine rated it did not like it Shelves: dnf , ghosts , killed-spiders-with-it.

I forced myself to read the first three chapters and I couldn't even bring myself to finish the book. I've tried a couple of times, but it just didn't keep me interested. My goodness! It took me forever to finish this book. I really can't say that I found it intriguing or interesting enough. Mar 29, Vanesa rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in Another fantastic story by Gemma Malley!! Great plot and the characters were just wonderful!! Very twisting plot and full of surprises especially at the end!

I have read every book by Gemma Malley and absolutely loved all of them, except for this one. It was very confusing to say the least and I don't really feel like I actually understood the whole of the book until I reached the end, which made it better somehow, but I like to understand the book as I'm reading, not at the very end of it. Will, the centre of the story, has constant nightmares, feelings of being followed and just generally quite a sad and depressing life because of this and because of I have read every book by Gemma Malley and absolutely loved all of them, except for this one.

Will, the centre of the story, has constant nightmares, feelings of being followed and just generally quite a sad and depressing life because of this and because of the memory of his mother's suicide. His father is extremely racist, wanting rid of all those who live in Britain but weren't born there.

He is somewhat like a Nazi sympathiser. After confronting the Returners, the people with sad eyes who follow him, he learns that they are people who always come back after they die as somebody else, but they always return to live for the same purpose: to experience pain and suffering.

Will learns that he too is a Returner, it took him so long to return and remember who he is because he didn't want to return, he refused to, because he doesn't return for the same reason as the others. He returns to inflict pain, to kill, and suddenly remembers all of his past lives. He was the leader of a concentration camp, sending people to their deaths and he was a school shooter in another life.

The Returners’s tracks

In this life, the life of Will Hodges, he doesn't want to be a murderer so he tries to be good, but it is extremely hard for him as killing and causing pain is his only reason for returning. Overall, the book is actually very interesting and definitely makes you think, but I personally just found it quite boring and it seemed to drag on and on.

However, I enjoy romance novels, so I can definitely see someone who enjoys mystery and fantasy really enjoying this book. I have a vague recollection of reading this some time in the past which is kind of ironic considering the topic of the book itself. While I felt a repeated deja vu throughout this book, I can't seem to remember when I actually would have read it before.

I also couldn't remember much of the main plot, which is pretty weird. Anyway, the review. It's a good book. When you read it, you oft I have a vague recollection of reading this some time in the past which is kind of ironic considering the topic of the book itself. When you read it, you often think, "this is good" or "cool" or whatever, but a few months later you'll forget all about it.

At least, that's how I felt. Gemma Malley is an author I used to love when I was in my preteens, and I'm not sure if that's why her books feel very adolescent to me, or if it's because they actually are. Basically, I feel too old for them now. The protagonists are usually "cool" mid-teens, who the reader is supposed to look up to in some way.

But I'm older than most characters and actually find their attitudes a bit pathetic and petty. The story was good but I felt like there were a few loopholes, honestly. The idea of the "Returners" is interesting but not developed enough - who actually 'controls' them?

Lithuania: The Returners

Where did they come from? What is their real purpose? I felt like their purpose was a bit wishy-washy. Douglas's refusal to change his attitude because it "isn't their role" or whatever just sounded a bit Like a cop-out, I guess. I really would've liked to know more about the Returners and why they actually exist. It's only short and this may contribute to it feeling quite young, but it is well written and really enjoyable to read. Will is almost an anti-hero, and as the reader I both loved and hated him.

His thoughts and attitudes were quite sporadic and it was sometimes hard to keep up, but that may have been the intention. I did like how we learned things at the same time as Will - we followed him through his own story. It was also really interesting how Will decided to handle the life he'd been forced into. Gotta say I really enjoyed this, found it to be a fast-paced and compelling story, great lot of twists and turns that I never saw coming!

Neat idea too, and glad it was a standalone because often I just want to read something from beginning to end all in one go! But I'd be interested to read more about the Returners. I also would have liked a bit more insight into Will's past lives, because I found a lot of them to be a bit too vague. The Auschwitz one was obvious the ash really gave it away , Gotta say I really enjoyed this, found it to be a fast-paced and compelling story, great lot of twists and turns that I never saw coming!

The Auschwitz one was obvious the ash really gave it away , but none of the other scenarios were even remotely recognisable, so I couldn't place them in history, they were just random, unspecific horrors. Some were mentioned later on, but out of context, so it was too difficult to match up. Nov 01, Elaine rated it it was amazing. To read it in , it's mind-boggling to realize it was written in , considering just how much it felt like it was written in the year it was set, The Returners is a gripping work of social and political commentary on both anti-immigration sentiments and the idea of neutrality in a polarized society.

If you're into history, sociology, and politics, read this! To tell the truth: When I first picked up the book, I was like, "uh oh. Jul 16, Khadija Zahra rated it liked it. I didn't think I would like this book at first, nevertheless I kept going and finished the book. The ending was so fucked up yet so good.

The plot was a little sketchy at times but I like the way the author built up the climax. Feb 10, Lilian rated it it was amazing. Very complicated ending with who actually killed Will's mother, also, why did he forget what happened? Oct 04, Mrs M rated it liked it. Really not my thing - just did not really connect with the characters. I thought the idea was good but it was too vague. Mar 03, Canadian rated it liked it Shelves: young-adult , speculative-fiction.

Malley deserves credit for tackling such a big question as the problem of evil and suffering--humankind's proclivity to intolerance and genocide. Will, the central character, discovers he is a Returner, a soul who returns to earth again and again, apparently to witness and absorb human suffering. There is a twist, though. Some Returners are the perpetrators in the almost ritualistic evil that seems to have plagued human civilization from time immemorial.

Will's struggle is to decide whether Ms. Will's struggle is to decide whether he will put a stop to this cycle. The premise of the book is interesting, even provocative, but there is something unsatisfying in the execution. In the end, Will rejects his "destiny" as a perpetrator of the next holocaust and opts for exercising free will. But if such events are part of the human condition, won't another Returner simply assume the necessary role of perpetrator?

One wonders what larger purpose Returners really serve, who or what sent them, and what larger force determines destiny. If Returners are both victims and perpetrators of grand scale genocides, of what moral substance are normal non-Returner humans made? What role do they have in mass violations of human rights and human dignity?

In creating these beings, questions are raised but unsatisfactorily explored. An interesting book, but not fully satisfying. Recommended for ages 14 and up. There is some "mature" language and content. Will's father in the book suspects his wife of having an affair with one of the hated "foreigners" who have hijacked Britain. Apr 04, Saskia rated it liked it. Though the pace of the book was slow-moving even for a book of only pages , it was still an enjoyable read.

This is again one of those books that I simply cannot tell you about in detail, because it would completely ruin the plot. The itself was easy to follow, with only a few main story lines being presented. Similarly, the morals of the book felt quite relevant to todays society.

Narshe joins the Returners, and with Figaro this gives them the resources and technology to attack the Empire's capital Vector , but they lack the manpower. On their request, Terra opens the gate to the Esper World, releasing several espers that decimate Vector. The Returner-Narshe forces occupy most of Vector while the Empire calls a ceasefire to look for the espers with Terra's help. Terra and her friends travel to Thamasa and help locate the espers and their leader Yura , who soon agrees to a peace treaty with Imperial general Leo Cristophe.

The peace is short-lived; soon Kefka attacks the town, and kills Leo and his troops and captures the espers as magicite. Although the Returners destroy the Imperial air force in the battle over the Floating Continent , they fail to prevent Kefka from moving the Warring Triad out of alignment.
