I can't wait to finish the book so I can see the full movie. :)
While Darcy is away and Liz is contemplating the statements made in the letter that she has just received, I think i'll pick up my sister's Keeper once again. I swear the library due dates just creep up on me.
So while I wait for my shelves to arrive i'll just sit back and enjoy Darcy's attempt to protect Liz from criticism. <3
I feel like writing my own flipping review for this novel because later down the road I want to know what I though about in this moment.
First, there are so many quotes in this book that I have fallen in a tizzy for. The good kind. Secondly, the writing is fresh and in-tune with our times. If someone picks this book up years from now they might not understand some references-Lana Del Rey- but right now it captures this time, it's like a photograph among Polaroids. This book is on it's way to stardom. Oh! Did I mention that the writing is phenomenal! At times I read too much into the foreshadowing and though that it was all going down the shoot. I made assumptions and they were thrown back into my face.
I'd built up a stereo-type and I was happily defied.
Maise is addictive, not only to her lover but US, the readers-at least she was for me-as well. But she's more than just addictive, she's fragile and smart very smart; she's like a never-ending onion.
Evan is a mixture of love, age, pain, joy, and youth. (he's mysterious so i'll let YOU figure him out on your own ^_^)
The plot was riveting, thrilling, sensual, and tender. I was turning page after page after page and I just could not get enough. It explores the good and bad, the unforgivable and forgivable, the captured and uncaptured, the taboo and the natural.
5/5 Stars I'm buying this book in Hardback pretty freaking soon. ^_^
six and four.
If you have read hunger games, maximum ride, downsiders, uglies, pretties, and specials, or matched or the recent novel the fifth wave, you will like this book.
The one thing that surprised me about this book was that it reminded me of the sorting hat from harry potter, but the consequences are much more dire.
It is set in a dystopian Chicago, but it centers on the 5 downfall traits of humanity.
But by all means read it, it is a lovely exhilarating ride to read.
The characters, the romance, the different factions will grip you and never let go. Very action-ie as well.
