Hannah Payne's life has been devoted to church and family, but after her arrest, she awakens to a nightmare: she is lying on a table in a bare room, covered only by a paper gown, with cameras broadcasting her every move to millions at home, for whom observing new Chromes??criminals whose skin color has been genetically altered to match the class of their crime??is a new and sinister form of entertainment. Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder. The victim, according to the State of Texas, was her unborn child, and Hannah is determined to protect the identity of the father, a public figure with whom she's shared a fierce and forbidden love.

When She Woke is a fable about a stigmatized woman struggling to navigate an America of a not-too-distant future??where the line between church and state has been eradicated and convicted felons are no longer imprisoned and rehabilitated but chromed and released back into the population to survive as best they can. In seeking a path to safety in an alien and hostile world, Hannah unknowingly embarks on a path of self-discovery that forces her to question the values she once held true and the righteousness of a country that politicizes fa… (lisätietoja)

I was expecting a dark YA classic lit adaptation as a bit of a brain break after a heavy read, but this was not really a young adult book, and unexpectedly shared some themes around religion and morality with my previous book. Hillary Jordan riffs on The Scarlet Letter, bringing it forward in time and evoking Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale for good measure. Hannah Payne lives in a near-future United States, in a world that has been changed profoundly by a mutated STD that caused a fertility crisis, a nuclear attack on Los Angeles, and a new way to deal with crime: an injection that literally changes a person’s skin color for the duration of their sentence, with different shades correlating to different crimes. Hannah, born and raised in a conservative evangelical household in Texas, is a Red, reserved for crimes of violence. She’s had an abortion, and refused to name both her doctor and the man who would have been the father of her child…who just so happens to be a mega-church preacher and newly appointed federal official, the pastor Aiden Dale. Once she’s released from her brief prison sentence (in which she, like her fellow prisoners, is broadcast live to reality TV), she finds herself facing choices she never could have imagined before her ill-fated love affair. I’ve always had a soft spot for The Scarlet Letter, and I enjoyed the little callbacks to it, like Hannah’s skill as a seamstress and a nod to Hester Prynne’s daughter Pearl. There’s a development near the end that felt a little forced, and an ending that lacked the satisfaction of the one that Nathaniel Hawthorne devised. There’s also a lot of Hannah reckoning with her faith particularly and belief generally, contemplating the existence of a higher power in a world of profound injustice. It was more philosophically inclined than I’d expected. It was perfectly okay and I suspect I will hardly remember it six months from now. ( )

I wanted so badly to LOVE this book. I wanted it to take up residence on my "favorites" shelf. The subject matter of this book, I just knew, as soon as I saw it, this was right up my alley. I promptly put it on my wish list over at barnes and noble, high priority, even. When I saw that the nookbook had one day dropped in price to $3.99 from $14 , I got that tingly feeling that only getting a much-wanted book at a bargain price can give.

The story started okay, explaining who the character was, her predicament and the hows and whys of how she got there. After that, the story pretty much dropped off and it just felt like it was all over the place and NOTHING was resolved. What happened to her sister and Cole? What happened to the people that ran the home she spent those six weeks at? There was mention that the Novembrists might do something to them, but nothing ever happened. Her situation with Aidan, I felt there was no resolution there either. I was sorely disappointed with the story and felt like the author just hurried up and finished. It's almost as if Hillary Jordan got tired of writing and said "screw it, I'm done, let's wrap it up and put a bow on it." I give the book three stars because the idea behind the book is a good one and I did enjoy reading about that. This is just another one of those books that I feel the author could've done so much more with. ( )

I could barely finish this. The first half of the book is terrifying in its take on a possible future where fascism based on right-wing religion gains not only legitimacy, but political and governmental agency. That's not the church that Jesus founded and I have loved. The latter half of the book loses its way, just as the protagonist seems to find hers. Coincidences and stupid decisions abound and lead to an obvious and unsatisfying ending. ( )

A modern re-imagining of The Scarlet Letter, in which people who are convicted of crimes have their skin modified to be tinted a color that correlates to the kind of crime they committed. For Hannah, who was caught just after having an abortion, it means her skin is red, the color for murder. She refuses to name the father, who is a famous evangelist and recent appointee to a religious post in the federal government, and she must navigate a society that is completely hostile to her all while struggling to with the notion that her conservative Christian upbringing may not have been an accurate outlook on the world.

A great tribute to Hawthorne while also being a bit terrifying for how close to the current state of things it gets. Excellently strong, feminist ending as well. Recommended. ( )

These early scenes, in which Hannah wakes up in the Chrome ward where she’s been sentenced to remain for 30 days, are promisingly inventive. ... Lacking the satiric sting of “1984″ and “A Clockwork Orange,” the pathos of “Super Sad True Love Story” and “The Book of Dave,” or the kind of newfangled vocabulary each of these works used to describe their worlds, Jordan’s dystopia turns out to depict a much smaller future than its bold opening chapters, with their clever homage to Hawthorne, had so valiantly attempted to guarantee.
