The book was written in the first person point of view, and in the present tense, both of which were choices that made the book more challenging to enjoy. An overwrought southern accent on one central character was distracting, but he was likable and well-developed. Some of the characterizations were immature, perhaps more high school than college.
The setting descriptions were rich and detailed. Our protagonist, Evie, was plucky and admirable. It’s a good series starter, as there’s obviously so much more story to be told as this book closes.
But why are we missing some stars? Well, the writing leaves a lot to be desired. Russell is a southern boy with the most annoying speech. I don't know about you, but when I know a person has an accent, I tend to read their lines with an accent in my head. But that's just me. Too many "ya" and such made it hard to read his lines and get what he's saying.
Another reason? I get that someone is absolutely beautiful and perfect, but the description of Reed being beautiful and perfect every time? Maybe because Reed is beautiful and perfect. You know, since he is beautiful and perfect. See how annoying that can get?
Also, I think the description was too much of a filler. I love a good visual and some authors really need to learn how to do so. But this book had way too much of it. It made the book longer than it could have been, which annoys me.
Last but not least, I don't like weak female characters. Evie tries to be strong, but gets picked up and carried to safety way too many times. Things like that annoy me.
For $2.99, it's not a bad buy. It's really not a bad read, but beware what everyone is complaining about because it will annoy you.
I was told by a friend of mine to try this book, so I did. I read the first three chapters and I called her and said "Oh my god, worst book ever". She told me to keep going, so I did. And THANK GOD FOR THAT! After I got used to the bad attempt and teenage language (that was my turn-off, the way the college kids said weird sayings- i dont know if kids really talk like that these days, but I hope not!) I was opened up to the best series EVER!
Evie- My favorite book heroine. She is beautiful, bold and sincerely cares about her friends. Her transition from human to angel is fantastic and I cannot wait to see her full blown transformation!
Reed- SWOON! Who doesn't want a super hot avenging angel in love with them? He is hotness personified and sweet to boot!
Brennus- The hot villain- I'm not going to lie- throughout the series I go back and forth numerous times trying to figure out who I really want Evie to end up with!
The book has a million twists and turns and it takes you along a ride with these characters as if you are truly a part of the story. TRY IT!!
I tried a year ago and I tried again and I couldn't do it.
I bought this book because I read several exciting reviews. After trying to get into the story for a while, I put the book down and picked it back up a year later thinking maybe I could get into it.
After reading a few chapters, I went back and read a lot of the reviews and couldn't figure out what they were talking about. Then I read the 1 and 2 star reviews, and they all sounded like they were reading the same book.
Russell is a martian; nobody from the south who goes to college speaks like that.
Evie is annoying. There is nothing exciting about her, and there are no actual flaws in her character. There is nothing for her to change, to build upon, to improve, nothing.
I couldn't get over the obnoxiously irrelevant details. I skipped several pages of boring things--moving into the dorm, the field hockey game, etc--and still couldn't finish reading. This is not to say that Bartol is a poor writer, but I can't speak on many good qualities because this book did not portray any of them in the slightest.
I don't know what these five star reviewers read, but it certainly was not this book.
