Quite frankly, if the whole vampire thing got chucked out, a good percentage would still be a solid story. I was a bit disappointed at first, due to the lack of vampirism, but it was still a good read. Do not read this if you're looking for an Anne Rice twist for teens, or something to that effect. If you are a fan of Ms. de la Cruz's previous novels, i.e, the Au Pairs, and other chick lit, you will find this book a very good one.
I am a writer. I am not published, and I'm only eighteen, but what I do a lot of in my free time is write. And when I'm not writing about made-up fantasy worlds, sometimes I actually have to do research about our own world for the book to make sense.
Ms. de la Cruz, and her editors, seem to not care about this at all. I realize that she grew up in the Phillippines and therefore the history of the Mayflower might not have been as ingrained into her childhood as it was into mine. But a bit of internet research could have prevented her from making the painful errors she made in writing this book. For example:
1. On page three, the first entry, the writer states: "it has been a difficult winter" as her opening comment. If you will notice the date on the top of the page, it is November 21st. November is not winter. Nor, as the narrator later states, have the settlers even docked yet. The difficult winter did not occur until the settlers had arrived in Plymouth.
2. About Plymouth. They spelled it `Plimoth' at the time.
3. On page 56, the second entry, the narrator writes: "... joyful news-- the people of this new land have welcomed us with open arms and many gifts. They brought us wild game, a large bird that could feed an army, a bunch of vegetables, and maize." This is supposedly the 25th of November, 1620.Read more ›
