    1 thought on “Rocco”

    1. Rocco is the first book that I can remember making me cry. It's always a bit of a gamble to revisit books that had such a strong hold over you at some stage in life, because if it doesn't still - it's bound to be a let-down.While it couldn't completely live up to my expectations, it fortunately came very, very close, so I only had to down-scale my rating from 5 to 4 stars. It's an interesting story, and powerfully written. I could have wished for it to be a bit longer and slightly more complex, [...]

    2. Not as good as I remember it from school, but then saying that the last time I read it I was 15 and my mentality has changed considerably. Worth a read if you are aged between 12 and 18. However I would think this would make a great motion picture, especially if filmed in New Zealand where the author is from.

    3. I reread this just now, and was happy to do so - it's a very well written timeslip novel, ultimately about the reconciliation between members of a single family across vast distances of time and space. The main character, Rocco, finds himself in a primitive, harsh village. Strangers are usually stoned to death as a threat, but, thanks to the wise woman Ayoshe, the boy is allowed to live and join the village. He eventually comes to love the people deeply, and is changed by what he learns from liv [...]

    4. I remember picking this up from a stash of my cousin's books ages ago. While the story has been lost to memory I still remember my satisfaction when I finished the book

    5. I first read this book as a kid, not long after it was first published. It absolutely blew my mind. I was a bit scared about re-reading it, in case it didn't live up to my memory, but I'm pleased to say it did.Rocco is a great character, enough of a dick to be interesting but not enough to annoy me. I love the life he built in the Valley of Anshur and the way everything is wrapped up in the end.The writing flows nicely, with enough detail about life in Anshur to picture it without getting bogged [...]

    6. Thought provoking story from an author from New Zealand.Startlingly realistic dreams haunt teenager Rocco Makepeace, becoming stronger until he is swept away into another time and place.This Juvenile book is stunning even for adults.Merged review:Thought provoking story from an author from New Zealand.Startlingly realistic dreams haunt teenager Rocco Makepeace, becoming stronger until he is swept away into another time and place.This Juvenile book is stunning even for adults.Merged review:Though [...]

    7. I read and loved this years ago as a teenager, so it's hard to know if it would still be any good on revisiting. But there's been a fair bit of discussion on Facebook lately about the YA books we read as teenagers, which made me think of this… although my thoughts had returned to it from time to time between when I first read it and now, as I type this. It's so funny the way just seeing the cover totally brought me back.It is seductive in the way a lot of sci-fi/fantasy set in strange, 'primit [...]

    8. Maybe a 2.5? My problem with this book, although it wasn't clunky or anything, was that there was no tension. Nothing really happened.I mean, yes, Rocco magically transported to a primitive time (which they eventually explained to be (view spoiler)[the future after a nuclear war although really, only like 90 years after nuclear war some people would build medieval-level towns and some people would live like cavemen with no salvaging of modern technology AT ALL? (hide spoiler)] but never explaine [...]

    9. An all time favourite read to many of my family, never have I tired of reading and re-reading this story.Our story starts with Rocco in a dream that has become all to familiar to him, a wolf attack! The place is unknown to him but this very place will transport him into a world that he will grow to love and long for. But does this place really exist, is it the past or a future? What will change this dream either to become a reality or stay a dream?I highly recommend this book for any age group.

    10. This was the first book I read of S. Jordan's & it remained my favourite for a good many years after. I must've been around 10 or so, but put me on the track to more books by her as well as a great love of fantasy & historical fiction ;-)I've based this on my memory of it, but I will reread one day too

    11. aka "Rocco"This book is one that's stayed with me over the years since I first read it as a young teenager. It moved me, and make me think about the bigger picture of things. I would recommend it to everyone and anyone. In fact I might just have to pick myself up a new copy (as my original was sold when I moved overseas as an adult).

    12. I first read this book as a teenager and it has stayed with me ever since.It's not an action packed adventure and there's no great quest, but I think its simplicity is what draws you in. Definitely a great book for YA.

    13. I loved this book when I was younger I read it more than once. The ending is what I will always remember.Merged review:I loved this book when I was younger. I will always remember the ending.

    14. One of my favorites from my youth, I used to read it over and over never getting bored with it. I would love to get hold of it again!

    15. Just barely decent fantasy for young adults. Strange religious ideas (maybe some is better than none:), and focus on boy girl attraction seemed out of place when survival is main objective.
