    One thought on “Pig-Heart Boy”

    1. So touching, my 2nd favourite Malorie book of the month. Review to follow in the next few days. FULL REVIEWFor my pre read thoughts and reasons for rating please visit my blog:From the Shadows I Review You know how I had trouble reviewing ‘Double Cross’ well I’m having even more trouble with this one. I can’t quite put into words how I feel about any of this. But I’m gonna give it a good go. This is a really good story, touching, realistic, heart breaking and so enjoyable. It’s a sho [...]

    2. This is all about a young teen who needs a heart transplant because his own is not working and he will probably die within a year. He is offered a heart but it is a pig's heart and if he accepts he'll be the first human to have had this kind of transplant. As with anything new, it involves risks but he is prepared to take them as he is fed up of not really living - just watching. He decides to go ahead and tells his friend to keep it secret. Unfortunately his friend lets it slip to his parents w [...]

    3. let me quote the protagonist and summarize this novel " it is simple, really"Cam. is a boy with a weak heart , and the only ready donor is a pig called Trudyr Cam and his family , after the procedure instead of being concerned about their son's short life span, their focus turns to the media, and the people talking animal rights the boy has to face all kind of people, and all kind of opinions, trying to figure out the right from wrong, and the art of living, forgiving and forgettinge novel ends [...]

    4. I read this book a while ago but every time I remember it I can only think of the good things. This book is so amazing and it just opens up a whole new part of our world that could one day be realistic. I love the way Malorie makes the characters come alive and I just love the entire book so much. Definite 5 for me

    5. In 'Pig Hearted Boy', Malorie Blackman presents the reader with a touching but heart breaking story, full of various challenging questions about life and death. The story is told through the perspective of thirteen year old Callum who is about to undergo a life saving heart transplant in which he is the first to be given a pigs heart. Throughout the story, Callum shares with us the many challenges he faces both before and after having the transplant which include, being surrounded by a media cir [...]

    6. I've read a few of Malorie Blackman's books: some good, some not that good, but none of which, in my opinion, can match her excellent Noughts & Crosses series. Pig-Heart Boy is my favourite of these books. In typical Blackman style, it's a powerful story that tackles some pretty hefty issues.Thirteen-year-old Cameron is dying, and time is running out to get a transplant. In desperation, his father approaches a doctor who is trying to conduct research with pig hearts. Desperate, Cameron's fam [...]

    7. Cameron is thirteen and desperately in need of a heart transplant when a pioneering doctor approaches his family with a startling proposal. He can give Cameron a new heart — but not one from a human, one from a pig. It’s never been done before. It’s experimental, risky and very controversial. But Cameron is fed up with just sitting on the side of life, always watching and never doing. He has to try — to become the world’s first pig-heart boy.I remember seeing the BBC adaptation of the [...]

    8. The beginning is just wow. It really hooked me in. Nice book. Recommended For:Ages 9 - 12.Synopsis: Thirteen-year-old Cam wants to be normal. He wants to touch the bottom of the swimming pool at the deep end, to run, to dance, and to play football with his friends, but he can't because his heart doesn't work properly. He caught a viral infection that affected his heart and his doctor decided that he needed his heart replaced with a pig's one. The doctor told him and his parent's that it MUST be [...]

    9. "She was going to die so that I could live. Wasn't that a fair exchange?"Thirteen year old Cameron Kelsey is told that, without a heart transplant, he will be dead within a year. But without any available human donors, he is beginning to lose hope. That is, until Doctor Bryce appears- with a different option Cameron could receive the heart of a pig. It's risky, controversial and it's never been done before, but will Cameron be willing to take the plunge?I'm not sure how I felt about this book. O [...]

    10. Pig Heart Boy touches on a very sensitive subject; using animal organs in human transplants. The book made me think about whether I would accept a pig heart.Yet I still had to give it 3 stars.Honestly, this book wasn't amazingly well-written. Some reviewers said it was amazing because it was written in the way an 11 year old would speak. Well, here's some news for you: 11 year-olds who read books don't conform to sterotypes. Blackman seemed to be busy trying to get into the mindset of a young bo [...]

    11. Malorie Blackman, everyone says she is the best children author, and I can see where they are coming from. This is a truly brilliant book, I do not think I have ever read a book so fast. If anyone says that this is a CHILDREN book then they are wrong! My mum is reading this book and it is a powerful story, sticking in your mind for days. Whenever something bad happens to one of the characters, you really feel for them. I got to know the characters so well, this is one of the best books I have ev [...]

    12. I read "Pig Heart Boy" when I was in year 6 and I really liked it.It was about a boy who has heart problems and needs to have a heart transplant. No person would give away their heart so the doctors suggested to use a pig's heart. The boy's parents do not want that to happen and let their child have a pig's heart and they fuss about it really much. The boy dos have the pig's heart at the end and it has a really good ending.I enjoyed the book and will read more Malorie Blackman's books.

    13. This book deals with some very mature themes in a way which manages to high not shy away from them but remain child friendly. It is a captivating narrative and explores great topics for discussion with children based on animal rights, bullying and death.

    14. Thought-provoking. Cameron is a sympathetic character who draws us into the debate without ever telling us which side we should come down on.

    15. Cameron is a 13 year old boy. 2 years ago, a viral infection damaged his heart and without a transplant, he's not expected to live to 14. His dad contacts Dr Bryce, a doctor experimenting in transplants that involve pigs. Its controversial and never been done before. The plan is to do it in secret. But of course its never that simple. The operation is a success but Cameron's friend has blabbed and now the whole world knows he is "pig heart boy" and suddenly he finds himself being avoided by peop [...]

    16. This book is quiet a quick read but it really gets you thinking on how we are trying new things and inventing new ways to live. In this book the character gets a heart of a pig to survive. It’s a really interesting concept and to see how others react to the family and Cameron is really interesting. Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and it is another amazing read from Malorie Blackman.

    17. An interesting topic to read about and I flew through it. Some of Cameron's dialogue and internal thought processes didn't really feel true to a 13 year old to me but it was an enjoyable read none the less that raised some important questions.

    18. Light-hearted and witty, but truthful and emotional. Malorie Blackman is a seriously underrated author who writes incredibly honest novels. I loved the story, and the sarcasm, and the emotions that run through the story. Time to read Naughts and Crosses!

    19. I really enjoyed it I think the main character is so powerful and there are so many self morals that he set for himself and I just think that he's so cool

    20. Another brilliant book by Malorie Blackman. Interesting and gripping storyline including ethical considerations.

    21. Everyone should read this book! Calorie Blackman does it again; making you think, question and ultimately books you with a great story. Loved it.

    22. “I am drowning in this roaring silence. I am drowning. I am going to die” Cameron, a thirteen year old teenager is desperate for a heart transplant. He is smart, good looking and extremely intelligent. However his life isn’t normal. Ever since his body caught the viral infection 2 years ago, his heat had started weakening and producing a massive number of problems for his body. And now it was the time that he was forced to change his heart to survive against the forces of the world. Not wi [...]

    23. A story about Cameron, a boy with a dodgy ticker who is offered a way out by the enigmatic Dr Bryce. He has a heart transplant using the heart of a pig, and the story is really about what happens to Cameron afterwards: how others perceive him, how he perceives himself, and what life comes to mean to him. A strong emotional ending and lots of talking points around animal rights (and the price of life).

    24. This was not the story I expected it to be but, in a way, the story that it actually was turned out to be even better than what I'd thought up. I expected this to take a more sinister, creepy turn, with the heart effecting Cameron's characteritics and making him pig-like, particularly in his appearance. The graphic image on the cover, paired with the quite harsh title of the book and the quote from the doctor quite early in to the book that the pigs they were breeding took on "human characterist [...]
