I liked the continuity of the story, the characters. The way the author captures the atmosphere of the American deep South. I like the unexpected, unique plots, the twists and turns of the story.
The relationships between the characters are so real yet the circumstances they are in are so unexpected and otherworldly.
I have not heard him before narrating any other books but I do like his narration in this series very much.
New Revelations, a Journey into the Unknown, 17 Moons a choice to make.
Another great book in this series. I look forward to the next book.
this book was really slow and I couldn't care less what was going to happen next. I found that I had a hard time paying attention to it and my mind would wander - even during parts that were supposed to be suspenseful or exciting. I didn't care enought to rewind the parts that I missed. the only reason I listened through to the end was so I could find out Lena's fate. I was disappointed.
I think if there's a 3rd book, I'll pass. I no longer care what happens to these kids.
Continued with great ideas and great story, but it seemed to continue to embellish or restate things over and over and was much slower a read than the first.
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
..and I'm confident you will, also, particularly if you do read in this genre. This second installment of the Beautiful Creatures saga contains some interesting twists and turns. It is true that at some points, the story take it's time to develop but I think that is part of the story..keeping "true to it's nature", if you will. The same can be said for the tension between the characters, and some dialogue that you find yourself wishing would or would not be exchanged between them. If you become invested enough that you get "mad" a character for what she (or he) is not doing or saying, (as I did) then the author(s) have done their job! It would not be the same story if things were "easier", or things were said differently. I find Kevin T. Collins' narrative performance pretty much impeccable. He really makes Ethan real. He does this so well that the character of Ethan himself really becomes the driving force of the story, and not just because it is, in fact, relayed in first person from his perspective. His genuineness and personality really come through. You feel like you are in his head and experiencing these events from the inside out. Also, I liked the song and the sound effects and did not find them to be too much. Highly recommend!
Personally, I get similar vibes to that of Twilight (roles reversed) but incredibly witty, more in depth characters.
I love this series! I loved the first book for all the crazy witty references to the greatest novels and authors of all time. If you enjoy coming of age love stories, characters not only find out who they are but also discover their own past & future, anything supernatural, bro-mance, or YA novels, you should definitely give this series a chance!
I enjoyed the story and character development. It would be sad not to be able to go back to Gatlin.
Makes you wish you knew a polite southern boy.
