I mean, how could that ever be demanded?! It was practically rape, and it broke the girl. But that might be why it was added, just to make this story more impressionable maybe?

Dec 10, Elyse Walters rated it did not like it. Shame on this author! This book is creepy-creepy-creepy! Disturbing and irritating. I could tell you every little ugly-nasty-yucky detail about this book in 5 minutes if you are really THAT curious ask me if you need to know but don't waste your time -or money supporting this book.
I have no problem with the 'concept' the philosophical question of whether life has meaning or not by 7th grade kids I think its a little silly for adults to debate this question. The BEST part of the book is the title: This is her best writing contribution??? I'm angry its getting 'awards' something is very wrong in our world if this book is getting awards.
I would NOT want my 7th grade child to read it.
Its WAY to violent. View all 39 comments. Aug 22, TheBookSmugglers rated it did not like it. This review contains spoilers!
You have been warned! A few weeks ago in the middle of a reading slump, I looked at the book, it looked back at me, and I thought surely this is a safe bet, all things considered. Well, that only goes to show how much reading is like a box of chocolates: The story is set in a small town in Denmark and it starts this one day when year-old Pierre Anthon stands up in the middle of the classroom and says: Nothing matters.
I just realised that. He then leaves school to sit in a plum tree from where he taunts the other students day after day with things like: Everything begins just in order to end. The moment you were born you began to die, and that goes for everything else as well. The students grow uneasy about what Pierre is telling them. What if Pierre is right and nothing has meaning? So his classmates decide to show him that things do mean something and set out to build a pile of meaning to show him.
They start working at this closed mill, where they start building said pile by adding things that matter to them, willingly giving them up. But then they realise that these are not meaningful enough. They also realise that one does not have the strength to give up more meaningful things so they decide to choose on behalf of each other and they start to demand more in a horrifying crescendo: The stakes are amplified with every subsequent pick: This goes on for months and months until eventually one of the kids breaks down and tells the adults.
A museum declares the pile to be Art, and therefore the pile does have meaning. The kids agree to sell it for millions of dollars. And just then Pierre finally gets around seeing the pile they built for him and promptly declares it meaningless — because they sold it so easily. The kids get really fed up at this point, and they beat Pierre to death, set the barn and his body on fire to make it seem an accident and they go on their merry lives.
The end. I will just start by saying that I have no problem with the fact that the book is bleak, violent and works as an expression of extreme nihilism. I also have no problem with the philosophical questioning: No, the reason why I disliked the book is simple: I think it is flawed in terms of executing its basic premise, the development of the story is contrived and manipulative and the writing is irritating to say the least. The reader is supposed to accept that a bunch of 7th graders gets around their really small town over a long period of time months and months doing these things completely unnoticed and unchecked by their parents, neighbours and teachers because one kid is up in a tree yelling things at them?
I am supposed to suspend disbelief and accept the premise that this kid just sits up on this tree day after day after day and no one does anything — where are his parents?
Am I supposed to accept that every single student is equally distressed by what Pierre tells them and that not a single one of them offers a dissenting voice? I am supposed to accept all of that as part of the philosophical aspects of the novel. I am sure that the point is to show how group mentality works and how searching for the meaning of life could happen anywhere, anytime but come on, these kids are not isolated and therefore the comparisons with Lord of the Flies are not exactly apropos , life goes on, they go to school every day, they go home every day.
So therefore, in terms of a fictional story it does not stand against close scrutiny. There are no consequences for the crimes yes, they are crimes committed by the kids.
Apparently only one of them has to face his parents and it is the Muslim kid — who is severely beaten up. After all of that happens, only one of them completely loses it and goes insane in a very sociopathic way: But who knows, maybe I am missing some philosophical point here? But because of all that, I felt the development of the story and the amplification of the tension to be extremely contrived, and felt as though the events were being manipulated to fit the philosophical premise.
It never felt like a natural crescendo. Finally, there is the writing. Its minimalist writing, full of short, staccato sentences was extremely grating and they happen every pages. I understand this is a translation from Danish — maybe this sort of writing sounds better in the original language? All of a sudden I was scared. Scared of Pierre Anthon. Scared, more scared, most scared. Victory is sweet. Victory is. Not one of us. Five-zero-two He was going to see right through us.
Then I noticed how quiet it was in the mill. All quiet. So yeah, Nothing did not rock my boat and I know I am the minority when it comes to this one on top of awards, it also got starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus and Publishers Weekly. But, hey what the hell do I know? I quoted Forrest Gump in my intro to this review. Nihilism View all 8 comments.

What begins as a premise with so much potential ends as a book full of nothing, or worse, an appalling disregard for the humanity of teenagers and a deeply cynical and pathological view of life.
One 7th grader decides nothing is worth it and climbs a tree. The best the others can muster is to pelt rocks his way. Why doesn't one climb the tree and join him?
Where are his parents? Why is it that all kids are equally threatened by this act, which I feel would only pose a minor threat to a What begins as a premise with so much potential ends as a book full of nothing, or worse, an appalling disregard for the humanity of teenagers and a deeply cynical and pathological view of life.
Why is it that all kids are equally threatened by this act, which I feel would only pose a minor threat to a few, and because of that they all turn into animals driven by base instincts? They are not isolated on some remote island. They all go home every evening to their parents, so the reader is left to believe that all of their parents are deaf to the world of their kids, and no conversations about "meaning in life" or active engagement in meaningful life activities are to be had by any of them.
One boy is a devout Muslim and he concedes to giving up his prayer mat to the "pile of meaning" and gets beaten to a pulp by his father to prove it has meaning?
A Beatles fan and avid guitar player sacrifices a finger on his hand. A girl agrees, in a very detached manner, to give up her virginity?!? Presumably this story is meant to work as a fable, but it doesn't whatsoever, and it is the sickest yarn I have yet come across in young adult literature. I find the entire story to be the most insulting diatribe against youth. I have heard people say, in defense of this multiple award-winning story, that it provokes discussion.
Any story that provokes a worthwhile discussion has some nugget for the reader to chew on. This one has absolutely nothing, as the title implies. To me this is a gimmick of the worst kind. Yo soy la reina del morbo, pero para mi esto me supero La historia nunca me toco la fibra ni me trastorno, solo me afecto lo de los animales en mayor nivel y un poquito menos el tema de sofie y del hermano profanado. En todo sentido el libro me decepciono.

The description of the boy in the plum tree yelling philosophy at his classmates has me expecting something a bit more serio-comic. But the situation gets dark very quickly, and even before things get really horrible it's easy to see that's where it's going.
Although the characters are early teens, I recommend giving it a read through before handing it over to any sensitive thirteen year olds, or sensitive souls Er.

No puedo porque en realidad siento que mis palabras no van a poder describir este libro. El libro no es para todos,simplemente es un libro que puede remover tus sentimientos y que puede gustarte como no. Es por esto que deciden recolectar cosas , cosas que a cada uno de estos chicos le signifique algo.
La historia es atrapante. Los personajes son siniestros. Se notan cambios durante el libro, cambios que son buenos como malos.

Cercando il significato. Ancora una volta la metafora si concretizza nella rabbia di questi adolescenti, costretti forse a pensare da adulti quali non sono. Ancora una volta reagiscono emotivamente, con una rabbia troppo spesso rivestita da freddezza, e alla fine solo il fuoco riesce a ripulire tanto l'edificio quanto le loro coscienze. Si reincontreranno, certo, ma sempre per caso e con un certo malessere, facendo di tutto per ridurre al minimo il contatto o fingendo di non essersi visti, di dover cambiare strada.

No es una lectura agradable, dejando de lado los grandes temas que cuestiona, es un libro perturbador, morboso y macabro.

A young boy decides that nothing means anything, so he decides to spend his days in a tree yelling what are, in translation, irritating slogans about how nothing means anything. His parents and teachers? Apparently content to let him stay throughout the winter. His classmates? Actually deeply bothered by him, instead of finding When picking up Nothing, a reader needs to be prepared to suspend their disbelief an extraordinary amount for what is meant to be a realistic, contemporary story.
Actually deeply bothered by him, instead of finding him simply weird and annoying. So deeply bothered that they decide to gather things that do mean something, so they can prove he's wrong. You need to be able to accept all of that to even have a hope of making it through the story. I finished the book, knowing that the plot was absurd and unrealistic in the extreme, mostly out of morbid fascination. It starts small, with one teen demanding a greater sacrifice from another. And so on, and so on, in a bizarre and grotesque display of one-upsmanship.
It's very, very difficult to get through. The end result of all this is The pile of meaning gains them nothing, costs them much, and has alarmingly few consequences. I'm not even sure what the author was trying to say about meaning. Maybe all she was trying to say is that children people?
The style used here didn't work for me. It was broken, oddly repetitive, and detached. An example, describing a friend's blue hair: But this is a translation. How much of this is the original author, and how much the translator? And does it work better in the original Danish? I couldn't say. Nothing does have the saving grace of being a short, quick read. It's a small, thin book, with lots of white space, and morbid fascination can really increase my page count.
But in the end, that morbid fascination was all I got out of it. View 2 comments. Il mondo annientato dai ragazzini. Un piccolo paese della Danimarca, anni Duemila.
