did not like it
Read in May, 2010

I wrote this FIVE YEARS AGO and I was FIFTEEEN. Also, I course a lot. If you can't handle poorly based criticism and/or swear words, don't read it. Really, guys? No hate.

I was 15 when I read and reviewed this book. I obviously didn't like it, partly due to its translation into Swedish and partly because I JUST DIDN'T LIKE IT. And that's okay. However, just because I hated a book doesn't mean you should. That's the point of reviews, recommending and not recommending books based on your personal opinion of it. If you disagree and think this book is great, then good for you! I am genuinly happy that you liked it! Good books are always preferred to bad books, so I am really glad you liked this book.

Another tip, if hate reviews or reviews talkning shit about a book or series that you like bother you, do yourself a favour and stop reading it as soon as you notice it. Just keep scrolling. Because if you comment on my FIVE YEAR OLD review expecting me to defend my standpoint FIVE YEARS ago... just don't. I don't give a shit about this book anymore :)

Honestly.. I hated it. I hate it, I hate it, I can't stand it! Rose, the whiny little bitch.. LEAVE LISSA ALONE! CHRISTIAN IS COOL! God, I really dislike her. It was.. boring, no, irritation can't be that boring.. since I was imagining myself strangling Rose :D That really can't be dull.
Anyways, I thought the author used the word "sexy" waaaay to many times at one page. It was sexy here, it was sexy there, it was sexy in space.. whatever, I can't stand it. I just didn't like it.. it wasn't at all like I expected it to be. And, by the way, I read it in Swedish.. which might've done something to it.. but I don't like theb story, which does not change when you translate it. Sorry, but I wouldn't recommend it.

BUT, a big but here, I do like the US cover of the books.. it's not that bad, even if I can find better examples of a GOOD cover. It's okay.

Chloe Glad i am not the only one. I felt like an alien because it seemed like i was the only person who did NOT like this book.

Emelie Haha, me too! xD I haven't met anyone else who agrees with me about this book, I was beginning to wonder if I really had missed something. High five for not liking VA!

Verlysia *thumbs up*

Tin I didn't like the book too! Good to know I'm not alone! I agree with the overuse of the word "sexy". I find Rose too conceited! I like Christian and Lissa. Those two were the only cool characters.

Emelie Indeed! :D

DaceY I just finished this book. I too did not like it so much. I found Lisa and Roses relationship annoying and im not quite sure why. And all this training Rose goes through during the whole book and she uses it in less than one chapter. This book was boring and didnt have much direction.

Emelie Amen, sistah! xD

Emelie Hah, jo en del har sagt att jag borde ge serien en till chans... så får väl göra't, men det får äna bli när jag har tid och kanske hittar dem på biblioteket xD

Nuella lol i havent read the book but i am guessing it is not something i would seriously wanna read!

Cynthia I loved it, and Rose was amazing!

Noel Wow its not all about lissa and christian there is other interesting stuff in it

message 12: by Noel (new) - rated it 5 stars

Noel The book rocks

Emelie To Noel and Cynthia (a late response, I know): And that's fine! I'm glad you guys enjoyed the book, really I am, but I personally did not enjoy this book when I read it back in 2010. That's just my personal opinion, but I'm glad you guys liked it :D

Lili The first isn't that good but they get better... There's more action in the second book. Though, everything starts at the third book !!

Alex O'Riley Dimitri - The main reason to read the first book to the end. I like Christian and Lissa,too. But Rose... She really is a whiny little bitch in the first one.

Sasha Agree wholeheartedly...I think a series should START OFF as a good read, if the writing style made up for the plot I wouldn't have minded as much....

message 17: by Katerina (new) - added it

Katerina Chepani Wow so how do u excpect her to react like??huh.she had been on the run for 2years because of Lissa. She was away of her school activities,training,friends only to save her and Ozera was somehow a dangerous person. She couldnt let that years go on waste just for a guy u know. Yeah i know that Christian wasnt bad but how the heck was she supposed to know that? She had and her own life u know. She couldnt spend even her last year if freedom on Lissas head. And why do u call her a bitch? Beecause she nearly lost her virginity with the hottest mooroi? Thats every 17year old girl dream!!!

Jk97531 I loved the book so say what you want to say but you can't change my mind. It was an awesome book and I would definitely read it again. :)

Montana Rose a whiny bitch really I think u got the names mixed up Mia is the whiny bitch and Rose is the kick ass heroine !! Yes Rose hates Christain but she is tryna protect Lisa coz Christains perants are STRIOGOI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! u would probz do the exact same thing if u were Rose
