James and Rhiannon are just friends, though he may try to take it to the next level. Will their desire to take a mean girl down a notch bring these three friends what they wan...more
Really, what was the point of this?
It began really great, but things went downhill from the middle of the story. I finished it like two or three days ago and I already have forgotten the plot keys so I'll be very vague.
I think Colasanti lost her idea somewhere near the end, because things simply happened. And so? What else?
The romance wasn't even that good. I felt like smacking Ree's head half of the time 'cause she's so thick to not notice John's (was it John? ...more
I started this book yesterday and got about 70 pages in before I just got so completely and utterly bored.
I’m not sure I’m going to last the entire book because
a)Both Nicole and Rhiannon are so desperately boring and obsessed with being different.
b)Soooooo much name dropping and references to movies etc in so little time. It’s distracting.
c)Rhiannon has been with this steve guy for 4 mont ...more
Rhiannon is pining over the loss of her boyfriend, Steve and is consumed with trying to understand why he dumped her and how to get him back.
James, her best friend, is busy trying to console her and his girlfriend dumps him because he tends to put Rhiannon befo ...more
One of the things I didn't like was the switching of the point of views. Now, I do like reading other characters' perspectives, but I didn't like how everything was repeated. Like you'd hear the same d ...more
Let me just say, though, the three entwining perspectives were unique in their own way of highlighting different romantic dilemmas, while also staying connected in a really clever way. And although the romance was a little lackluster for me, the friendships were such a positive a ...more
Part I and II of the book covers the span of 6 days total and each POV recounts the same days and events in detail. I found it unnecessarily redundant and repetitive, and the book took about 75 pages to finally take off. When I’d start the next POV, I consistently felt back at square ...more
So I was like, "No way."
And he was all, "Yeah."
And she goes, "Seriously?"
And she GOES? This book was painful. And as a once teenage girl, who may or may not have spoken in this fashion, I most certainl ...more
Question: Why haven’t I read a Susane Colasanti book before now? (A little reference for all of y’all who haven’t read this yet – P.S. Go read it now!)
Everything about Take Me There ticks all my boxes, alternative perspectives, realistic characters and wonderful writing. It’s moreish and addictive and I think a perfect example of a great contemporary book. Contemporary in general is underestimated. I, like many people am guilty of underestimatin ...more
It took me awhile to get into this book, but I ended up enjoying it!
This book is from the perspective of three characters: Rhiannon, Nicole, and James.
Rhiannon's boyfriend just broke up with her, without explanation, and wants him back
Nicole broke things off with her boyfriend, and is now chasing after a crush...on her math teacher.
And James has always been best friends with Rhiannon, but does he feel for more?
These characters ...more
I liked the three separate points of view, and I think Colasanti did a decent job of making the three voices unique in their own ways. There were moments when Rhiannon and Nicole kind of blurred together, but each of them had their own personal issues that did separate them. I liked all of the characters well enough.
I love the friendships in this story. The four m ...more
Three high school friends on a quest for love stop at nothing to find it. Through heartbreak and some tough times James and Rhiannon find love with in each other. Nicole rekindles one of her old flames she realized she should have never put out. Together they tough out the dramas in high school, and form and even stronger bond.
In my opinion "Take Me There" was a great read. Some of the things I thought that were very interesting and entertaining about the book were as follows. I thought the way ...more
Rhiannon has just been dumped by her boyfriend. She is completely devastated and will do anything (read: ANYTHING) to get him back.
Nicole is Rhiannon’s best friend. Her and her boyfriend Danny have just broken up, but he is still in love with her. However, Nicole is in love with someone else…an older man.
James is Rhiannon’s other best friend. They’ve known each other forever. James’s girlfriend just dum ...more
If it isn't for the ending I wouldn't give it 4 and half.
I liked the ending the most .. very pleasent ending. it maid me smile a big smile.
it was like giving me a new hope especially when the old women wrote that litter for Jams.
in general the story was good but unfortunately, I couldn't feel it so much .
there is something missing but iam not qite sure what it is.
Thanks again to my frien Doha ^^
1) All three characters basically sounded the same. I could barely tell them apart from one another.
2) It gets tiring reading about the same events three times.
Also, the ending was really abrupt. There was a big reveal at the end—literally, the last few lines—, and it was really unsatisfying ending on that note.
But I wasn't about to write Susane Colasanti off. I picked up her second book, Take Me There just recently and finally cracked its covers when I looked for a fantasy break. Take Me The ...more
Everyone remembers high school, the drama, the romance, and in this case, the karma. In the novel Take Me There by Susane Colasanti, the reader meets three peculiar characters from the state of New York. All of them are easy to relate to when you enter this funny, romantic, charming book that tells the tale of a couple of high school teens striving for justice.
When Rhiannon and her boyfriend break up, she forces herself to go pass her organized, planned life. If writing a messag ...more
More or less you'll find yourself (and maybe your friends too) in this book. Every characters seem familiar. There's Rhianon, heartbroken and hopeless after a sud ...more
