i only added another star because it's erotica and it will only either make waves and be controversial or don't and this one did so it's a supposed ini only added another star because it's erotica and it will only either make waves and be controversial or don't and this one did so it's a supposed indicator of how the female society is changing and voicing their sexual wants or something like that not to mention it came from a humble ebook published and got included in the NYT best seller. OH MY. at this day and age, i'd expect erotica fiction for women to make it main stream at some point but this piece of "literature" is a poorly written fiction where the protagonist's internal dialogues is irritating and makes me think of her as a middle-aged English woman rather than a supposed young American woman. OH MY. Not to mention that internal dialogue makes the character seem superficial, fake and detached from herself and her character's traits. OH MY. It could have been controversial for reaching the New York times best seller list with such atrocious writing style. OH MY. Thank God I only borrowed this and didn't buy one for my own and not falling into that list trap. I seriously am starting to hate that OH MY expression because of the book.
if i could rate this lower than one star i would. If i could put it down I would but it would be a waste of money to put it down and it would add to mif i could rate this lower than one star i would. If i could put it down I would but it would be a waste of money to put it down and it would add to my list of books that i have not yet finished-something i don't usually do. I wish i could have read reviews or a preview somewhere before purchasing this book but i got blindsided. I am blaming the NYT for this, the supposed award and of course, James Patterson who i know writes novels for adults that i did not think were bad.
The characters are so stereotypical, the jock, the rebel, the villain and they are all sarcastic. especially the "teenagers" with their sarcasm towards the adults even in what was supposed to be their state. The choice of words also aims to connect to the readers i guess with the "WTH and freakishness" but it is just unnatural. I guess the characters are supposed to be cool in an unnatural way. it's like taylor lautner's acting in shark boy and lava girl. really bad.
lines that made me laugh "let me guess, no one loved you as a child. or as an adult. well, tough noogies!" -what awesome and snappy retaliation! it probably sounds cool but it's not. Then again this book's a lot about being awesome, cool and not being a wuss and a freak to save not the cliche world but their cause.
is this book for teenagers? because it reminds me of a far worse goosebumps story! i doubt this is for teenagers because the 17year old guy calls himself a kid which i doubt normal teenagers would. the book could have been better though. I can still see some positive things in his writing style that was just really destroyed by his forcing himself to write a children's book. I am guessing the positive reviews/ratings for this book was because of the theme/the moral of the book (which i would say i can find in other better books) but not the writing style.If i'm correct i haven't seen any 3-star rating and up rate the book for the writing style....more
