I absolutely loved this book! I was leery about reading another teen supernatural book - I thought the Twilight books were awful (Vampires that glow in sunlight and play baseball? You've got to be kidding!) But I'm so glad I listened to Beautiful Creatures. The relationship between Lena and Ethan is developed as they get to know each other and reveal themselves to each other as opposed to the Twilight series where the attraction is all about how Bella smells. The authors really know how to portray the age old teenage question - how do I choose who I want to be? I highly recommend this book to teens and adults alike.
I really liked this book. It was so interesting to listen to the story from the point of view of someone who was human - but felt like he didn't fit into the world of the 'people'. The people are never referred to as vampires or monsters, instead it is understood that the people are normal - and the main character is the one who is different. The one who has to adapt in order to fit in.
I was surprised by the very ending of the book - so much that I immediately had to see if there was another book by Andrew Fukuda. I grew to care about the characters in the book and wanted to know what happens to them next!
I bought this book cause I was tired of waiting for the next Song of Fire and Ice book. Thought I would enjoy another story by George RR Martin. Boy was I disappointed. This book seemed to drag on forever. There were about seven times I thought - this will be the end of the book, but no it dragged on some more.
I don't usually write reviews, but felt strongly enough about this book that I thought I could save someone else the money - don't waste it on this book.
All of them!
I could not finish this book - it was that bad. The characters were not likeable at all. I couldn't find any redeeming qualities in them. And the story just dragged. After 2 hours of waiting for something to happen, I gave up.
