Running Out of Time
Running Out of Time | Margaret Peterson Haddix
16 posts | 18 read | 3 to read
Jessie lives with her family in the frontier village of Clifton, Indiana, in 1840...or so she believes. When diphtheria strikes the village and the children of Clifton start dying, Jessie's mother reveals a shocking secret -- it's actually 1996, and they are living in a reconstructed village that serves as a tourist site. In the world outside, medicine exists that can cure the dread disease, and Jessie's mother is sending her on a dangerous mission to bring back help. But beyond the walls of Clifton, Jessie discovers a world even more alien and threatening than she could have imagined, and soon she finds her own life in jeopardy. Can she get help before the children of Clifton, and Jessie herself, run out of time?

When I found out that the guest on this week‘s episode of my podcast was as into both the book at hand AND Colonial Williamsburg as I was growing up, I knew it was going to be a great ep... and it is! We‘re chatting all about Margaret Peterson Haddix‘s 1995 adventure novel Running Out of Time. I know I say this a lot, but this book was really my favorite! Link to listen in bio. 🎧

The biggest score of today. I have been looking for this book for a long time. Yes, it is the story that got copied and made into “The Village”. The Friends Library bookstore in Mason, MI gets a lot of good books.

LeahBergen This one sounds great! 6mo
Chrissyreadit I liked it too. I was so irritated by how clearly m. Night shaylomon plagiarized. 6mo
Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen it‘s a good book. 6mo

3.5/5⭐ I think a younger reader would appreciate it more than I did, though I did find parts compelling. Also I hope M. Night Shyamalan has acknowledged that his movie The Village clearly drew inspiration from this book. #owlsreadathon2019

TobeyTheScavengerMonk That was a whole big deal when The Village came out. If I remember correctly M. Night said he‘d never heard of this book. 7mo

Welp, it's that time on the month when you start frantically trying to figure out how to finish all the books you started....I brutally cut books from my January TBR earlier and I'm STILL having trouble. 🙈 #litsypartyofone

Sace I don't even want to think about it 😔 3y
TheWordJar Oh my! I don't think a statistic about death has depressed me so much. I have many books to go (hopefully!), but the reading must end at some point. 😩For now, we charge forth into the next story! 🏇 3y
asiriusreader Saw this yesterday. Had a mild panic attack. 😂 3y
BookHermit @sace @TheWordJar @asiriusreader Time to get brutally honest with the TBR😰 3y
Sace @BookHermit I've already informed my daughter she's going to inherit a lot of books. 😂 3y

I've been slacking Littens! I really have to put the hammer down if I want to pull off this #readathon. I hope I can stay awake!

I was checking in books at work, and I saw this cover. Immediately a warm, nostalgic feeling came over me. I remember almost nothing about the plot, but that immediate visual memory tells me to reread it because it was clearly important to my childhood, and I need to relive the experience. #YesIWorkinaLibrary #childhoodfavorites

I started the year off feeling amped for the 2016 @bookriot Read Harder Challenge... it's now a week into November and I'm realizing that I'm only slightly more than halfway completed. Oops. Is it worth it to try to buckle down and finish it, or should I just scrap it and start fresh in 2017? 🤔

moranadatter Are you excited about the challenges that remain? 3y
BookNerdBritt @kmdartist I am - just stressed about being able to do it in time 😬 3y

Decided to limit my all-time faves to books or series that I've loved for at least 10 years. Otherwise, I'd need to take a picture of the Library of Congress to get them all in there. Also just realized I forgot Ender's Game, what have I done?!?!?!

BookNerdBritt Running Out of Time was one of my favorite books as a kid! 3y
ElyssaReads I tell you I associate Ender's with you and you cut it from your favorites?! I feel lost. Ha! 3y
BookFreakOut @ElyssaReads Nooo I will throw you a lifeline! 🚑 Here comes the ambulance to save you. I posted the picture and had to leave for life group when I realized it, siiiiggghh. 3y
BookFreakOut @BookNerdBritt It's so good! That 90s cover art, though. It's something. 3y

Re-read a middle school favorite book...still a favorite over 15 years later! Interesting plot keeps you invested until the last page.
