Whoa. That pretty much sums up my feelings at this moment. When I finished LYING SEASON a few hours ago, I thought I should probably sit on my thoughts for a day or two and let everything settle. But I don't think waiting will change anything. So here goes...
LYING SEASON. What a perfect name for this book. Perry and Dex have never been wholly upfront to one another, about their complicated and turbulents pasts, certainly not about their feelings towards one another. But the level of dishonesty is ratcheted up to a new, disturbing level in this book. Like I said, Dex has never been totally honest about his history. In LYING SEASON, though, Dex's protective shell begins to chip away, and he begins to reveal pieces of himself to Perry. It's haunting, disturbing, and quite heartbreaking. I've never seen Dex this vulnerable. I don't think he'd ever been this open with anyone before, even Jenn. Only Perry does he trust. But then he reveals these secrets he's been keeping from Perry. Things that don't seem to be a huge deal to an outsider, but have a tremendous impact on her and show her how truly selfish he can be. He just... I don't know. I love Dex, I honestly do (cue the Olivia Newton-John music), but sometimes, I want to slap the literal crap out of him.
And Perry, sweet Perry.Read more ›
To start, this book is almost a complete departure from the previous 3.5 novels. Picking up on the heavy relationship aspects of Dead Sky Morning, Lying Season is most assuredly aptly named and takes the emotional and relationship aspect of the series a step further than its predecessor.
Once again we change locale here. This time it's off to Seattle, Dex's personal stomping grounds. Dex has gotten them into a local mental hospital that has never given permission to any previous ghost hunting crews. In addition, the Shownet office Christmas party is coming up that same week so Perry's invited to come up and stay with he and Jenn at their apartment for the week. That's right. Jenn. THE Jenn. What's more intriguing? Jenn is the one that insisted she stay in their spare bedroom...curiouser and curiouser. This alone, as I'm sure you can imagine, is a recipe for disaster. Believe you me: You.Will.Hate.Jenn!!! =)
While taking steps to investigate the ominous mental institution Perry and Dex also run into a rival ghost hunting team that are pretty much riding their coat tails, albeit with a larger budget and on real television. That really helped to put a little focus on their show and how it's getting out there, it's no longer just underground.
This is easily the most emotionally driven, character background oriented story in the series as it reveals much more about Dex as well as Perry and each of their haunted pasts, no pun intended. We learn some more about the infamous 'accident' in Perry's past that has been inferred and mentioned from time to time in earlier installments and we also learn a thing or two about Dex's troubled past.Read more ›
The book started with Perry finishing up a training session boot camp. She spent some time getting into shape and working on her own self esteem. I really liked the new Perry, as she was finally 100% of the person she totally had the potential to be.
It was Dex I had an issue with.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m just not rooting for Dex and Perry as a couple. To me, she deserves better. Dex is a 30 something loser with a shallow girlfriend and no desire to change. He may mesh better with Perry, but I just can’t ignore the fact that he picked a girl like Jenn. On the surface, I was like oh well it’s a good example of why a good personality, brains, and uniqueness will always beat out the fake and shallow Barbies of the world. But then I overthink and start wondering what kind of person Dex has to be if he stayed with the Barbie for this long. And if Perry is so much more his type, why does he choose to semi cheat on and talk about his girlfriend in a negative way? It’s rude. Jenn may be horrible, but most of what makes her so horrible is her incompatibility with Dex and how mean she is to him and if she’s a horrible person for being like that, then Dex is, too. I don’t know.
I guess I probably should just realize that as much as I enjoyed the novel and love the plot, this series will never be to me what it is to other people. The characters, though I love them, make me roll my eyes and make horrible decisions and just aren’t the type of people I would ever want to actually meet.Read more ›
