" Rating: 3,5.

"Akvarium" var en god bog - ingen tvivl om det. Den var ret underholdende, men fik mig samtidig også til at tænke. Den tager nemlig nogle rigtig gode emner op, og arbejder ret godt med dem, således at jeg følte, de blev gennemgået på en ordentlig måde. Når det er sagt, så var den dog heller ikke så meget mere end det. Hvilket er helt fint. Man kan jo ikke altid læse helt fantastiske bøger.

Det er ikke en bog, der har sat sig fast i mig, og jeg kommer nok til at glemme den ret hurtigt. Men det var en skøn læseoplevelse så længe det varede. Desuden kan jeg helt klart anbefale den, hvis man gerne vil læse noget, der både er let, men samtidig også har en del dybde i sig.

"When Jackie's father discovers that he's dying of a brain tumor, he decides he needs to find a way to provide for his family. In his muddled state, he decides it would be a good idea to auction his life to the highest bidder, which turns out to be a tv station who want to run a reality show about his final days. The intrusion of cameras and crew is immense, but Jackie finds a way to show the true story of what is happening to the world, with a bit of help from some online friends. This is a truly bittersweet coming of age story, with lots of humour. I particularly liked the way the brain tumor is developed as a character in it's own right! And it wasn't as sad as I expected - the focus is on Jackie outwitting the tv people and not so much on her father's decline. It's also a great look at how media in general can manipulate what we see/read. Highly recommended for high school students and adults." said.

"Life in a Fishbowl lacks the emotional depth needed for the subject matter. The characters are without exception unlikeable and unrealistic as we don’t get beneath the surface of the purpose they serve within the story. And anthropomorphising a terrible disease such as cancer into something that almost sounds cute was seriously off-putting.



There also were some cringe-worthy and disturbing fleeting references (men secretly watching 13 yo girls shower?!), which was not actually dealt with, increasing the questionable morality not of the concept of the novel but of the writing and execution, and entire though process behind it.

The idea of a terminal ill person selling their life as a reality show to set up their family for life is a great kick off point, but the execution was an utter mess.
