I give Stray a solid 4 and clean rating. It takes a bit to figure out the complexity of this world, but you get to learn about it as Cass does which makes it possible.
1-5 scale and what it means:
1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad
2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing
3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive
3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love
4: Solid mind candy / worth reading
4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read
5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure
Movie Ratings in relation to my review:
Clean--Hallmark movies, some kissing, no nudity, no sex on or off "screen"
PG--Some innuendo but nothing kids don't hear every day, sex is all closed door
PG-13--some language (swear words not related to sex), more talk about sex, heavy petting, removal of clothing on screen, but sex is closed door.
R--swearing (can be related to sex), feels like the whole story is about the sex and not the relationship or some other plot
I was tempted by both the free first book, and the Australian authorship. I was lucky enough to have lived there for two years and know how incredible the people are. I am always looking for new Australian authors.
I keep hoping to see that narration has been added. I would pay good money for that!
I recommend this series wholeheartedly.
As she admits to herself, she is a bit too willing comply with the wishes of othersabd slow to stand up for herself. But the author does an excellant job of delineating her struggles with her self as well as with her situation. Particularly well handled is her gradual progress with learning the language and learning her place in her new home.
The fantasy part of the Touchstone universe is seriously wierd and overly complex. The action scenes are dequately, though scantily, described. It doees not matter, as the real action is inter-personal and inter-cultural.
At the end of book 1, a new character and culture enter the picture and our heroine goes all Stockholm Syndrome on us. I have a sinking feeling that book 2 may degenerate into a more traditional story, but I like the character too much to care. I will happily, nay eagerly, plunk down the cash for the next installment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
The story's weird guys. It's totally futuristic, alternate universe, superpowers, anything goes, crazy stuff. Not my cup of tea but oh do I love this book!!! Already bought the next one. Don't exactly care for the story but the commentary from Cass?? Priceless.!! She could be taking about soap for all I cared (although I think she does at some point). Anyway, this is probably the most realistic girl gets sucked into alternate universe and becomes super important too everyone story yet. As in she basically just stands there all day going, this is...uh 'great' and all...but can I go home now?
Only thing that bugged me in the entire book was referring to the Aurora Borealis instead of Australis...petty
Recommended to anyone who wants to laugh.
