So dictionary.com states that a sequel means "a literary work, movie that is complete in itself but continues the narrative of a preceding work". WELLSo dictionary.com states that a sequel means "a literary work, movie that is complete in itself but continues the narrative of a preceding work". WELL THIS WAS NOT A SEQUEL! More like a new story that expands on the life of a major character from an author's first/popular book. If there is a name for this, please leave a comment and let me know. THANKS!
Here is my 5 point review: 1. Just another story of a super human child. I am starting to view her books as works of fantasy versus regular fiction because I am having a hard time believing that this is suppose to portray real life.
2. While the children in this book is super human, she portrayed some of the adult in all of their flaws.
3. Her MENTAL ILLNESS! I wish they would have dealt with this better than they did. She was suffering from schizophrenia and split personality disorder and instead of the adults getting her the help she needed, they completely ignored it and let this lil girl walk around talking to herself! Don't even get me started on that "husband" of hers and him thinking its cute having "3 women/wives" in his life. She is just 17, women don't severely suffer from this disorder until they get into their 20s. However it does show how trauma can lead to psychic breaks.
4. The author did the same thing to Porsche that she did to my favorite character in the 2nd Midnight book. She turned this independent woman into someone who gives up her entire life to be totally dependent on a man, have his babies and follow him blindly around the world. She undoes everything she worked hard to achieve with the character. UrrGGGHHH!!!
5. Of course I have my favorites that I want to know more about. Riot and Lina, I really wished we could have found out what happened to Lina. Also why didn't Porsche ever talk/write her damn daddy??!!! Everyone but her talking to him.
Well thats it. It was okay, wayyyyyyy better than them damn Midnight books. I could go on and on about my opinions and "propaganda" the author is trying to lay on us but then I find that she contradicts herself alot with her constant glorifying major name brand clothing.
I am quite certain that we will get another book about Midnight (we better) and I am sure we will get one from the Daddy Santiaga point of view and maybe even a side character or two. I can't see her moving from these characters, not when it such a "brand" and money maker. ...more
