Another reason this novel is difficult to read is that some of the decisions the characters make just astound me; they make no sense. If someone close to me lost their memory, I wouldn't just sit back and let it be. I would re-introduce them to all of their friends and loved ones. I would tell them stories and show them photos and take them to favorite places - *anything* to help them pick back up where they left off. If my loved one NEVER remembered anything personally, at least they would have as many facts as possible to know the depth and importance of their relationships. That doesn't seem to have been a thought in ANYONE's mind, and to me that is just the stupidest thing ever. These people seem to just "let it be" for over a year, and so they cannot move on. The pain is still there and there is no progress or closure or hope at all. Sad.
Finally the thing that pushes me over the edge from sadness to anger with this novel is that people don't stand up for themselves. Yes, Lissa suffers A LOT from the misdeeds of others, but she is partly to blame for her own misery. She also made decisions that allowed bad things to happen. Had she stood up for herself, spoke up for herself, things might have been different. Yet for much of this novel, Lissa seems to be having a huge pity party for herself. Maybe that's to be expected when the emotional hits just keep coming, idk, but from the objective reader's perspective, things could have been so different for her had she made a few different choices. At least when the hits came, she would have been in a different place personally and maybe able to handle things better.
On top of that we don't really know what Lissa really thinks about any of her relationships, instead of getting into that she goes to sulk which bell she sure deserves turnabout some actual thoughts? I also don't understand how she cancer someone and then have a bond or whatever you want to call it, because it's just hi ya let's go have sex? It just all happens way too fast! I always kept thinking I was missing something there. Don't get me wrong I do like the books but the first ones much much better. I'll finish the series but I hope the next few are better.
Being the vampire fanatic that I am, I have always been picky about what I think constitutes a good vampire story and what doesn't. I've studied vampire lore, read Bram Stoker's Dracula, seen just about every vampire movie there is to see, and I've read a ton of vampire fiction. For me to say this is a book, and series, that I truly enjoy is a big deal. The storyline is not your standard vampire story, and there are many elements that on the surface you wouldn't think would work, but in the way Ms. Suttle puts it all together, it works beautifully and expands the vampire genre that much more.
In short, it's awesome.
