Loved Connor, the faithful devoted hero. Poppy is likable enough except she pines for a manhoe, Brandon, making poor Connor watch from the sidelines. Thankful she finally saw how amazing Connor was but took until the end of the story, which was annoying. In the meantime I had to read about Brandon's self destructive ways including being a walking STD who did drugs and was abused by his father.
What was also disappointing was the lack of sexy times. There was so much potential for that given that Connor and Poppy were each other firsts.
There is no way in Hades that I would waste my time and money reading the next book. Based on reviews Connor dies and then Poppy spends the remainder of the book chasing and pining after Brandon while he continues his manhoe ways only to end up dying. So not a romance to me as I find nothing romantic about any of those elements.
Poppy was a spunky little thing and I instantly liked her. There was so much classic childhood banter and it made me chuckle again and again. I could really relate to many of the situations and feelings that the friends were going through. Watching a ten year-old Brandon come around to the idea of having a girl hanging around with them was very entertaining. Their behavior was heart-warming at times and so perfectly child-like.
As they got older and feelings started emerging, I enjoyed watching their interactions. It was written perfectly.
The good and the bad that fourteen year-old Brandon goes through were very real and at times even heartbreaking.
I loved being able to read their differing thoughts and feelings for one another and their secret wants and desires.
This was a lovely story and definitely made me want to continue reading with War Poppy.
I can't get over War Poppy. I'm trying real hard but bleeding hell i can't.
This novella shows us Poppy, Connor and Brandon as children.
I love the insight into their past. It's wonderful to get a little bit of Connor. Although he wasn't in War Poppy his presence was and i loved knowing he was as special to both Poppy and Brandon as i thought he was.
Poppy has always been torn between them and it broke my heart a little more knowing that she felt that split pretty much her whole life. She was in love with these two boys. Both of them.
And finally Brandon. My beautiful broken Brandon. I don't think you're supposed to cry at this book but i bloody did! I'm not ashamed! i blubbed... AGAIN!!! To see the rubbish life he had as a child. His vile father, his living conditions. The way he thought his life was supposed to be when in reality he was so much better than that. GAH it just broke my heart all over again!!
I'm just glad that Brandon always had Connor and Poppy. Even when he did wrong they never turned their back on him or he on them.
The relationships and bonds these three had lasted a lifetime and beyond.
Just a brilliant addition to War Poppy that helps you heal maybe a tiny crack in your broken heart.
This book, Pre-War (War series, book #0), is the prequel and it's soul-stirring and poignant. You're given an insight into the characters that you would undoubtably have forged an attachment to.
The only criticism, and it's a small one, is that there was a part in book #1 that's refers to the timeline in book #0 and I was really looking forward to reading about it - it wasn't in the prequel. It's a personal niggling feeling that fellow (obsessive) readers will appreciate but it by no means detracts from the story.
I read book #1 first and I'm not sure whether the authors have a reading preference but I think they could be read in either order. Personally I think they should be devoured in the order they were released, book #1 then book #0.
A powerfully moving 5 stars.
