Best friends Jack and Conner can t stay away from Marbury It s partly because of their obsession with this alternate world and the unresolved war that still wages there But it s also because forces in Marbury including the darkest of the dark, who were not revealed in The Marbury Lens are beckoning the boys back in order to save their friends and themselves.The boyBest friends Jack and Conner can t stay away from Marbury It s partly because of their obsession with this alternate world and the unresolved war that still wages there But it s also because forces in Marbury including the darkest of the dark, who were not revealed in The Marbury Lens are beckoning the boys back in order to save their friends and themselves.The boys try to destroy the lens that transports them to Marbury But that dark world is not so easily reckoned with Reality and fantasy, good and evil Andrew Smith s masterpiece closes the loop that began with The Marbury Lens But is it really closed Can it ever be
5 Stars"Roll. Tap. Tap."For those of you that have read the first book in the series, The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith, this one, Passenger, will take you on a journey, an endless exploration, of the mind, and of the world. And all the while our main protagonist Jack will be there, egging us on, messing with our mind, and pulling our strings… Fuck Jack!Queue the narrator, pan out to see a .nd, and on this .nd, all of our returning heroes, Jack, Ben, Griffin, and Henry. Now you hear our hear ou [...]
Before reading: There's a sequel. Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. OH YEAH!!!!During: Will this be as freaky as tML? I kind of want it to be, but I kind of don't.After: Let’s go back all the way to 2010 for a minute. Little freshman girl goes into the library, picks up a copy of The Marbury Lens, and reads it. It’s freaky and illogical and haunting. It’s wonderfully written with compelling characters. The whole reality of the story is up for interpretation.It’s freaky.So when I found out that it was [...]
I hated being forced into doing the "guy thing," but I couldn't let Frankie start off this new day by labeling me as some kind of enemy outsider in front of the other boys, either.That's just how things were.It meant there was going to be a fight, and neither one of us questioned or doubted the laws that dictated our nature.-----He didn't even swing back one time; didn't even try to defend himself against me, which made me feel even more disgusted by him. The fucker didn't even know how to act l [...]
Spoilers!!!!Given how exciting the first book was I jumped immediately into the second and I was rewarded with another breath taking leap into the dark world of Marbury. Jack and his best friend Conner decide that the best thing to do is destroy the glasses that transport them to Marbury but really the shattering of the lens creates a crack between the parallel worlds. Jack and company flip back and forth between realities, each darker then the preceding one, until jack begins to realize that he [...]
So looking forward to this one!
-- Before reading -- Holy CRAP. If you've read my review of the first book, you'll know that I was extremely unsatisfied with the ending. AND NOW THERE'S GONNA BE A SEQUEL.Andrew Smith, I love you.Just-- After reading -- Well, as usual, I have no idea how to start. This book was so different from the first one, and yet somehow exactly the same. My thoughts are all really jumbled. Sorry. Anyway, I don't think I enjoyed this book quite as much as it's predecessor. Although I'm not even sure if enj [...]
I read the first one in the series and was interested enough to read the sequel. I really hope this is it. There were some interesting ideas here of parallel universes but it never really came to anything. Lots of detail about sweat, feeling sick, vomiting, peeing etc - which to be frank I really don't enjoy reading about. Jack again spent most of the story throwing up. I guess one of the positives is that you also start to feel ill and can almost smell the stench because it is described so well [...]
Wow. I am utterly speechless after finishing this book - a wonderful, mind boggling, seriously messed up, entertaining, awesome, epic sequel to The Marbury Lens. The list of adjectives could go on and on and on, but I don't think I could accurately sum up this novel by just making a list. Reading this series has been so much more than just "reading" to me; I saw the plot happening in my head like a film strip and truly felt what the characters experienced, smelled, tastedeverything. This book ca [...]
I sat down with Andrew Smith's newest on a dark and stormy night, the perfect setting for one of his twisted tales - and what a twisted tale it was! Jack (from "The Marbury Lens") is back and so is Marbury, in all it's bloody glory. But it's a different version of Marbury and Jack must fight his way through many "Inception"-like layers of reality, each more horrifying than the last, to find his way home - but will it be the same world he left? "Passenger" is gloriously dark, grim, and violent, a [...]
The ending I'd hoped for! I didn't think there was a chance.
i wish thete was more kissing at the end!
Holy shitskas. Just reading the blurb makes my head hurt, but oh so good. SO EXCITED!
2.5 StarsThe ending is what saved this book… My rating was going to be a star lower but I loved the ending so much. I will assume anyone reading this review has read book #1 so there will be spoilers for book 1 in this review. If you expected this book to be a continuation of book 1, you are poorly mistaken. It has the same characters, but it is basically a completely different story. We don’t get to see what happened after Conner and Jack meet Ben and Griff in the real world… we don’t g [...]
3.5The big (not-so) spoiler, so, it took two books for the boys to finally admit what I knew since page one. They're in love. All of Marbury, even Freddie Horvath and Henry Hewitt and Quinn Cahill and the Hunters and the Bug all of that because Jack and Connor couldn't be men enough to admit to their feelings. Just think, if Jack had admitted he wanted Connor in the beginning of book one he would probably have never found himself on that park bench. What would have changed then? Would Jack have [...]
Hohoho-ho. Mwahahahah. “ψ(｀∇´)ψ And thus I resign myself to this second book and even though I try to resist, I end up giving it five stars and a place on my shelf of favourites. The truth is I really tried, I really did my best to distance myself from everything, yet I failed. I remember giving The Marbury Lens full stars only because I was immersed in the story, I was so captivated by the concept that I decided to overlook the things that annoyed the shit out of me, i.e. John/Jack him [...]
This month, I am recommending Passenger by Andrew Smith, the sequel to The Marbury Lens, a book I read and loved a few years back. Passenger is a hard-edge young adult effort (which really doesn't feel very young adult at all, if you get past the fact that the main characters are kids) about a strange artifact that allows Jack, Conner, Ben and Griffin to shift from this world into the very terrifying alternative world of Marbury. It is grim and chilling, and the boys are constantly fighting for [...]
If you didn't like THE MARBURY LENS, you won't like this. But if you devoured MARBURY, if you GOT it, then read this, because it's MARBURY on crack. Everything is broken down and most of it is put back together again; a few things are explained, but nothing is neatly wrapped up in a comforting finale. At the end, and after you finish, there's a feeling of finality and of safety, which is really all you can ask for or expect, no matter where you are.
Absolutely disturbing. So much profanity. So much violence. So much sexual brutality. Just kept me twisted in knots throughout. Not sure that I would actually recommend this to any teens ever. That said, it was really well written and I never could quite figure out what was real and what wasn't, so it was very effective.
I loved these books. They were violent and gruesome, but I thought they were excellent. I finished both of them in about 3 days, just couldn't put them down. They're intense though, so I would recommend with that in mind. Probably wouldn't be enjoyed by those easily offended or sensitive to graphic violence and gore.
Seriously twisted in the best sense of the word. The best alternative to drugs that I know of. take a ride down the rabbit hole, Andrew Smith style.

Daw.at ending :-D
Wow. Okay, the Mind Screw really ramped up too much in this book. Was it really necessary to write it like this?
A more-than-worthy follow-up to The Marbury Lensgoes in some wild, mind-bending, and unexpected directions
Great series, but the first book was much better, to me anyways. I love how he always adds layer upon layer of horror and mystery, but maybe it was too much here. I hope there will be a third. It's got the potential of a horror-Narnia type world, where Marbury is seen by various generations, each with it's own story. First book was awesome, this one was ok, but the story, as a whole remains thrilling. I hope to read about Marbury again.
Finally returned to Marbury & I'm glad I did.
This 2-book series was dark and disturbing and trippyd compelling and addictive. The series begins with a traumatic experience for our protagonist, Jack (and one not for the faint of heart). Jack leaves a high school party drunk, bumps into a stranger on a park bench, and is subsequently drugged, abducted, and sexually abused by the stranger. He escapes, but that one incident colors just about everything in the series. Then the sci-fi/dystopian elements kick in as Jack is gifted with a bizarre p [...]
Let me just start off by saying, that to all of you who keep asking "why is Jack so improtant?" "What Makes Jack so special?" "Why him and not any other random person on the street?" Well you see, if someone wrote a book about an average person whom nothing ever happened to, what's even the point of the book? NO ONE WOULD READ IT. Why did Nick Carraway get to follow everyone around when he did practically nothing? Why is the Hunger Games about Katniss and not someone whodidn'tget picked (or thei [...]
First read: 01.04.13 - 24.04.13 ♠ 3 StarsWeshalb der Roman mich enttäuscht hat, liegt zum einem daran, dass man geschätzte 400 Seiten liest und rein gar nichts wirklich passiert. Jack und Co. reisen durch verschiedene Paralellwelten und versuchen die zwei Lensen von Marbury wieder zusammen zu bringen damit sie wieder in ihre reale Welt gelangen können und ihr "normales" Leben weiterleben können. Es folgen viele Szenen die blutig, krank und gewöhnungsbedürftig sind. Anfangs wie schon im e [...]
Jack and Conner thought they had it all figured out. They thought they could fix everything, their addiction to coming to Marbury. But they’re wrong, and everything goes wrong. He and his friends Conner, Ben, and Griffin end up scattered across Marbury, in different places and different times, with no way of finding each other but pure dumb luck. Jack is trying to find his way home, but he keeps getting stuck in Marbury, and Marbury that isn’t really Marbury but is, and a place that looks su [...]
