2.0 out of 5 stars A bit silly..., November 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: House of Night, Books 1-4 (Marked / Betrayed / Chosen / Untamed) (Paperback)
"Enjoyable for all ages" is definitely an overstatement. I am 100 pages into "Marked" and am debating whether to press on. Just about every other page is another painful remark from the main character about how only "slutty" girls wear that much eyeliner and how "cool" a piece of clothing is. The book is, so far, full of bad cliches about what it means to be an "offbeat" teen. Unless there is some dramatic change in the next 200 pages, I would have to give "Marked" 2 stars and attempt to give away the rest of the set to some unwitting tween.

I am wondering if you ever finished the book or the series. If you haven't, I will honestly tell you that it does get better, much better. I agree that early on it was sort of so-so but by the third book, I was reading a book per day. The series definitely picks up. Let me know if you ever decided to finish reading them.
