Všetko to začala týmto trailerom

Už dlho som bola v takej zvláštnej agresívnej nálade a potrebovala som niečo nesladké, drzé a iné. A presne to som v Croak objavila.

Z Lex sa za veľmi krátku dobu stala delikventka. Mláti každého, kto jej príde pod ruku, nadáva ako dláždič, porušuje pravidlá a robí každému naokolo seba zo života peklo. Možno s výnimkou svojej sestry – dvojčaťa. A tak sa jej rodičia jedného dňa rozhodnú pre drastické riešenie a pošlú ju k strýkovi, ktorý žije niekde v zapadákove ako farmár. Alebo žeby nie?

Myslím, že môžem povedať, že niečo takéto ste s vysokou pravdepodobnosťou ešte nečítali (ak hej tak sem s tým!). Táto kniha má toľko netypických čŕt, že neviem kde začať. Lex rozhodne nie je typická hrdinka. Nie je to sladké dievča, ktoré sa dostane do ťažkostí a potom ju zachráni krásny princ. Lex sa dostane do ťažkostí sama a každého krásne princa, ktorý by sa chcel len priblížiť zmláti a ešte mu pri tom vynadá. A aj keď konečne odhalí zmysel svojej existencie, má tendencie porušovať aj tých posledných pár pravidiel, ktoré sa jej týkajú.

"Well life's not fair. Why should death be any diffrent?"

Príbeh ma grády, spád a super zápletku. Je to prvý diel série (ešte neviem koľko dielnej) takže je aj vysvetľovací a zoznamovací. No ani to mu nebráni v tom, aby vás nútil obracať strany priam astronomickou rýchlosťou. Zo začiatku preto, lebo si chcete prečítaj ďalšiu nálož skvelých hlášok a ku koncu napätými scénami.

“You bit him?” Lex’s father said.
“He called me a wannabe vampire,” she said. “What was I supposed to do?”
“Oh, I don’t know—maybe not bite him?"


Ja som v tejto knihe našla to čo v mnohých iných chýba. Originalita, chytľavosť a riadna dávka humoru. A je predpoveďou dobrej série. Len dúfam, že autorka to nepokazí druhým dielom či zbytočným naťahovaním príbehu pre peniaze. Už sa neviem dočkať kam povedie Lex a ostatných. A čo všetko sa dozviem o strýkovi Mortovi či Driggsovi a ostatných.

She wished, as almost all kids wish at one point or another, that she could turn into a pterodactyl and fly away and never come back.

Toto a ešte omnoho viac nájdete v tejto úžasnej knihe. A viete čo je ešte lepšie? Na druhý diel nebudeme musieť čakať dlho! Podľa informácii na stránke goodreads.com či bookdepositery.com to vyzerá tak, že vyjde už v polke septembra! No nekúp to!

“Let me tell you something right now, something that I don't want you ever to forget: Starbucks is an abomination."

“Life isn't fair. Why should death be any different?”
Gina Damico, Croak

“Should she go on? Or drop it? Maybe this was one of those things that people should keep to themselves, like a hatred of baby pandas or a passion for polka music. Everyone needs a secret or two.”
Gina Damico, Croak

“Seriously?" she said with a glance of skepticism. Driggs and this nerdlinger? "You guys are best friends?"
Ferbus looked up briefly to give her a smug look. "We prefer the term heterosexual life mates.”

“Hey there cutie," he said. "What's your name?"
Lex rolled her eyes and turned toward the window. "Kill me."
"Kimmy? I'm Steve," he went on undeterred.
"Cram it, Steve”

“The boy took a step toward her. Lex jumped back, her contentious instincts kicking in. "Stop right there," she warned. "I punch, I kick, and I feel compelled to warn you, I can bite harder than the average Amazonian crocodile."

He smirked and leaned against the doorframe. "And I feel compelled to warn YOU that the bathroom we now share has a leaky ceiling," he said, pointing up. "There's an umbrella under the sink, if you're going to be in here for a while.”
Gina Damico, Croak

Gina Damico
“A crash of cymbals exploded in her ear. She opened her eyes to behold Driggs clanging them vigorously, a mischievous grin on his face and a large bruise surrounding his eye.

"I hope, for the sake of your fertility, you're wearing a cup," she warned through clenched teeth."
"Come on," he said, jumping onto to the mattress. "It's time for work."

Lex moaned. "How are you so awake already?"
"If you recall, I eat a lot of chocolate.”
Gina Damico, Croak

Gina Damico
“I wouldn't go around telling people about these shocks of yours."

"Why not?" Lex asked.

"It's like announcing to the would you have crabs. It's embarrassing, and no one'll ever shake your hand again.”
Gina Damico, Croak
