No to Cole. Narrator was fine.
Don't think so.
Too many to name.
Hours and hours of sniping, bitching, whining. While there was a plot buried in here, entirely too much time was spent with this juvenile dialog. Author seems to want us to believe this heroine is brave and resourceful and that the hero is proud of her. What came across to me was hours of spite, selfishness, willfulness. So may the juvenile dialog actually fits. Waste of time.
A different ending. The story was a little over the top in places but was pretty good until it veered into the land of the ridiculous. The whole story was built around the fight and the stalker. In the end, the fight was really much ado about nothing and the h became a self righteous rich b**ch whose job became to fix everything herself. She lied and sneaked around but was outraged when people didn't believe her. The 'brother' revelations added nothing to the story except to give it a bit of drama at the expense of a dead guy. There was no H in this book. He was totally emasculated by the author.
Someone who can pull off a Russian accent and who doesn't sound like she's 14.
So I'm over halfway through the book and the only thing I know for sure is that I'll get a continuous running commentary of Sam's bumps, bruises, cuts, headaches, and every bite of food she eats. I'm told she is strong and independent but I'm shown that she is needy and can't seem to learn how to manage her abilities. I decided to skip to the last three chapters and did not find any surprises or changes. Narration was terrible.
Was really looking forward to this book but unfortunately I was really disappointed. It seemed to be directed more toward the YA crowd; too many quips and not much action. The big "secret" was lame and the reveal was worse.
Soooo much angst. The same thing repeated over and over. If you insist on reading this, just read the 1st two chapters and the last 3 and you'll get to keep the hours you would have spent on the whole book. How many times do we have to have the female characters kidnapped or drugged or attacked or helpless. Don't waste your time. I feel for the narrator.
Almost anything else.
The narration was fine.
Juvenile, Unrealistic, Silly
The 'heroine' of the story was the least Christian. It's a constant struggle to fine writers who don't feed they must make women either weak or unreasonable, or either subserviant or selfish. I wonder if the author is 15 or is writing for a target group of 15 year olds.
