TRANSLATION: This book is awesomer than cheese (which means that it is insanely awesome considering that cheese is pretty awesome) I absolutely LOVE this series! XD I devoured this book in about a day (metaphorically of course since it's not really cheese). I would of fished it sooner if it wasn't for something called school (Am I the only one who finds it ironic that teachers hate it when you're reading a book in class?) Well anyhow... It's strangely interesting that in the 1st book the love triangle is introduced DUN DUN DUN!And in book numeral dos we have the focus on guy number one (Derek)and guy number two (Lucas) is just off in the sidelines.In book 3 we have the focus on Lucas while we don't here very much of Derek. I wonder how book 4 will play out.... Hmmmmmmmmmm.... Then we have the ghost. I figured that the ghost was actually Kylie's grandmother Not too long after the whole ghost was pregnant revelation the lightbulb went DING! I know some of you may think i'm lying about this but I am being entirely truthful. Although I did not guess about the whole real grandparents visiting (but I should get some points for the grandma thing). I did also guess about the whole grandma getting killed by testing but that was an easy one. I kinda wanted to slap Kylie for the fact that she didn't figure it out right away. Now with the identity thing.... I understand that chameleon is just a name but... She better not be an actual lizard! That would just be creepy on many levels! I don't think shes really a lizard but still! And by the way does the picture of her (like the face on the 1st book) remind you of a lizard. It does to me but the may be because of the whole chameleon thing (I didn't notice it until after I saw 'lizard'in the book). And the ending! WHY MUST THERE BE A CLIFFHANGER! I HATE CLIFFHANGERS It's numeral uno for my list of pet peeves I NEED TO KNOW WHO THE GHOST WAS! I NEED IT MORE THAN WATER! I NEED IT MORE THAN SHELTER! I NEED IT MORE THAN CHEESE!!! Okay maybe not that much but the point is.... I NEED TO KNOW! I read the excerpt at the back at the book and it doesn't say anything! Nothing. Nadda. Nyet. *Looks at the sky and raises arms* WHY WORLD?! WHY MUST YOU TORTURE ME SO?! *cries*
I apologize to the few of you who read this for wasting precious moments of your time ...more
Now the reason why I discovered this book in the 1st place was the promising cover then I picked it up, read the synopsis, and I wanted to read it Many Now the reason why I discovered this book in the 1st place was the promising cover then I picked it up, read the synopsis, and I wanted to read it Many months later when I actually got a chance to read this book I read the synopsis again and it sounded very familiar... Has anyone read the book Angelfire? The whole protector thing instantly made me think of Angelfire When I actually read the book I found more similarities: *The fact that it begins on her birthday *The amnesia *The Rencarnation Thankfully that was pretty much the only similarities
Now let me give a little bit of a run down of this book...
The book begins on Lenzi's 17th birthday (which I found oddly ironic since I started this on my 16th birthday) Anyway... Lenzi's in the Girl's bathroom and starts to hear a child's voice crying for help. And of course, there is no one there. Lenzi has been hearing all these crazy voices lately and is fearful that she is turning into her dad, who had schizophrenia. When she starts getting visions of her Dad's grave and a strange boy she takes a trip to the cemetary (with her boyfriend Zak). When she gets there she meets a boy named Alden who says he is her protector, that the voices are real and actually ghosts, and that she died in a flood. So of course she automatically thinks he's nuts... until it turns out everything he said is true.
It took me awhile to get into this book It seemed like everything was going to fast or that things weren't explained enough. and other stuff that I honestly don't know how to explain... But as I got further in, the book got more interesting. But here's some things that irked me:
Zak- I did not like Zak. It annoyed me that he kept saying 'babe' I seriously hate when dudes call a girl 'babe'. And some of you might have wondered... when Lenzi went to the grave yard what happened to Zak? Well, he got drunk and passed out -__- And he got worse as the book went on too
Lenzi- I'm not really sure why she irked me. It might have been because I couldn't believe why in the world she liked Zak or that she was jealous of her past life.
Alden- He actually didn't irk me. I thought he was cool right off with that crazy vibe. What can I say? I like the crazies & psychos.not as in I love them but as in I think they're cool. For example: Myrnin from Morganville Vampires (probably one of my favorite characters from a book XD).
Anywho... This book sadly wasn't as good as I was expecting *sighs*
P.S. I'm sorry for any mispellings. Spellchecker was acting up...more
