Ziyue I think that there were too many swear words in here. What do you think?


Ziyue Yeah they were well written. I liked them a lot:)


Ziyue Yeah


Rebecca i didn't really think so, but then again, catcher in the rye is my favorite book ever and Holden doesn't have the cleanest of mouths. lol.

Either way they were great fun. I Have 13 little thumb tacks lining the window in my room. ~_^

Haha, that's cool ^.^ my favorite number is 13 =D


Nicole I've read worse.


Emily Well read Sarah Dessen and you will not like it if you don't like swearing because there is a TON of it.


Christi Too many?? I only read like 5 in the whole series!! (Most got crossed out by the dude who had the book before me...I was mad and happy at once.)


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ I hate books with a lot of swearing, I usually put them down. But I didn't even notice in this book!!


message 10: by Sage (new) - rated it 4 stars

Sage Given that the main characters are teenagers, the swearing makes the book more realistic. Anyway I didn't notice the swears.

I didn't read any swears in this book??!!

Even if there was, it seems appropriate, as its a young adult book about young adults and young adults swear.


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ Fantastic writing is right! (no pun intended)


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ I am going to start the second one when I finish the book in reading now

Ziyue +.+ *and the funeral song starts


Gerchia It's a really good series, I'm just peeved that my library doesn't have the 2nd and 3rd books. I would love to read them.

Can you buy them?


Rahel Abraham whats the big deal lots of people swear and in relation to this book particulary their teenagers and teenagers swear much worse than these kids

I would but my bookstore doesn't have the series in stock anymore, bummer.


Pandora I found strange that someone is complaining about the swearing. I don't remember the swearing in the whole triolgy. I guess I was too busy wondering if there going to be one decent adult or I would even settle for adult role model. Never found one. Even SE Hinton as a teenager manage to fit in one adult role model in The Outsiders - the older brother Darryl. Beside her point was that a lack of adult guidance is a pretty awful thing. The lack of a decent adult for me was pretty big because I am adult.

I didn't like any of books in the series. I had other problems but, the lack of adults headed the list. I explained the rest in my review.


Kirsten I didnt read that many swears.

Have you tried borrowing the books from other libraries? I forgot what it's called but you can do this thing where you ask your library to ask for the book(s) that you want from other libraries.


Aurora This? This book series is minimal compared to some other books I've read.


Angela I didn't even notice the bad words. Maybe a couple, but nothing to notice. Strange Angels had way too many.
