did not like it

Read from March 22 to 23, 2010 the first chapter has revealed Calliope to be a forgetful space case, a bit spastic, super over-reactive, and a somewhat snobby weightest. Great. And good grief, the italics!! I mean really? Does there have to be an italicized word in every single paragraph? I get it, you are trying to emphasize, but when you emphasize every single sentence it makes everything seem unimportant - an annoying. A bunch of other reviews say that once you get past the first few chapters though and it's worth it, so I'm crossing my fingers.

Page 50...or there about...More wow, so Callie's mom, also immortal thanks to her love for Death, has the more ridiculous weakness I have ever heard of. Apparently all immortals have some sort of Achilles heel, and her's is her husbands snoring. YES, you read that right. Death's snoring is causing his wife to slowly die. WTF? Oh, and apparently she is also the most beautiful woman on the planet as she is a DIRECT descendant of Helen of Troy. Again...WTF? Oh and Callie nearly rapes a man she just met. Yeah...I don't know how much more of this book I will read but I have a feeling I won't be making it to the end.

I quit.I just cannot finish this book. Callie is one of the worst characters I have ever had to suffer through, and she is just not worth it to force myself to finish this book. 6 Chapters was more than enough thank you. She is whiny, annoying, selfish, spineless, helpless, speaks like a 8th grader (did she really have to pull the "NOT" card and call someone a 'jerkizoid'?), drops brand names like a fashion Nazi, and is just overall self-centered. It had such an amazing premise but failed big time.
