message 4: by Cassie (new)

Cassie Wow. I was actually thinking of giving the sequel a chance even though the first was so disappointing. Now I think it may just be a waste of time.

message 5: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Souza Great review! I started to get worried that I was going to get hate comments for giving this book one star. This gives me hope!

Angela @Hollz-- Bwahahahaha
If I were to guess, a lot in your book. ;)
But it's allll good, cause the beauty of a book is we all don't have to agree.
*high-five* my friend.

Carol Wasef I completely agree. I read the first on and I was bored to tears and I came to the point where I was reading but not processing anything just flipping pages. Then I saw this book and I was like meh it might be better than the burst because I hate not finishing a series. I think I'm still going to give it a try but I doubt it will be any good. Just a waste of time.

Abnosomeness 1314 I don't know what you're problem is...but look I get that we all have the freedom of expressing our feellings about anything and stuff but why is it so hard just to say" I didn't like the book because.......and when that happened it got worse with... "
because some people really like this book..
All I want to say is that if you really want to know if this book os worth reading it, than I suggest you just read it yourself.
my opinion is that because this is a really gets better after the 2 book.

Kaatje - this is Angela's review space and she can rate the book however she pleases. You are free to review the book on your own review space and sing its praises. Some of us do not have time to wait to read 2 books in a series before it gets better. We want to spend our hard earned money on books that will appeal to us.

Angela @Carol-- One can never tell what will happen and it's always worth giving something a shot. However, I agree. It's rare if I dislike the first book in a series that I will like the sequel. I wish you good luck & godspeed, my friend.

@Katjie-- I've got to admit I'm a *wee* confused by your comment. I did read the book and decided I didn't like it based on that reading. Normally, my motto is 'if you don' t have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' as my record here on GoodReads can account for. However, as this ARC was given to me by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review I felt I not only owed my fellow GoodReaders my honesty, but the publisher. You have the right to love this book with every fiber of your being and I completely respect your opinion and would never attack you for it. To each his own. Just as I have the right to share my humble opinion with others. As I said in this review, it gives me absolutely NO pleasure to book bash. And while I thank you for the suggestion that I read the rest of the series, I shall humbly pass as my to read pile is out of control. I wish you happy readings.

@AH -- Thanks for sticking up for me! The funniest part of the whole situation is this review is YEARS old and one of the few negative reviews I've written. However, I can't help but chuckle. I understand reading is extremely personal and finding out someone isn't head over heels in love with your favorite book is hard. But tis the way the cookie crumbles. And in those situations I tend to shrug and allow others the right to their opinion. Seems the decent thing to do. ;)

message 13: by AH (new)

AH It's kind of funny because I don't recall you ever posting a negative review before this one and you were so very nice about it. Oh, well. Sometimes people will even tell you that you haven't read the book correctly, as if that is possible. Books are subjective.

message 14: by Angela (new)

Angela Agree. I was just talking about this with a friend. About how those who believe we can read without bias or that there's some magical right or wrong way to read a book are (frankly) lying to themselves. I am honest enough to admit I have a million different biases when reading. My main one being, I want to fall in love with every book I read. It's why I normally steer clear of reviewing books negatively. (Now, if we were sitting down for a long chat over a nice cup of tea then I'd *probably* fill your ears with complaints.)

Readers who love this book can come after me for this review all they want. I posted it on an open forum knowing it would be an unpopular view. I stand by it and all its *glory*. I held back A LOT when writing this review. And I'm still upset I wasted my time reading this book when I KNEW it wasn't for me in the first place. But such is life.

It is a shame that people feel the need to attack verses starting a friend conversation but whatever. I'd love to hear their thoughts on what made this book great verses what makes me a broken person with problems. But I have a feeling they just wanted to let me know how wrong I was and peace out which is their prerogative. *shrug*

message 15: by AH (new)

AH I think that it is more prevalent in the YA genre,

message 16: by Angela (new)

Angela I'm thinking you're onto something. ;)

message 17: by Lenka (new)

Lenka This is actually a really good book. Don't discourage the readers just because you are probably not a person that usually reads sci-fi. It was a really great book. And the fact that it was from more than one perspective was really interesting and it was really great to see the connections between the characters. You also could learn to write your opinion less offensively. You may say you didn't like the book because this or that. But saying this is an awful book and how much you hated it is not really a way of expressing your opinion on the book. Like I said, I don't think you're a sci-fi literature reader and that's why you probably didn't enjoy this book. I think it was written really well and it was really breath taking and had some unexpected turns to it.
