Sarah Rees Brennan ê 2 Characters

Whom is eerily familiar to Kami Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown in fact she’s determined to find answers for all the uestions Sorry in the Vale is suddenly posing Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods What is her own mother hiding And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy does she still love him Does she hate him Can she trust hi Edit 11212 So after reading this snippet from the seuel I will definitely not though I doubt I would have anyway be raising this rating to two stars You know what I imagine closes out that scene These are the days of our lives Is this a soap opera or a book guys Guess the relationship melodrama keeps on keeping on in book two Unspoken really isn t as bad as some of the other one star YA books I ve read this year The Body Finder and Shadow and Bone spring to mind There really are some redeeming moments in it and if it hadn t been for that last chapter I might have rated it just a little higher Perhaps those moments of redemption are what made this book s betrayal even worse This was a story we ve heard many times before trying to pretend it was the opposite of that thing instead of just being honest about what it wasKami Glass Malese Jow in my mind is uick to let us know that she s not like those girls She starts the book by disliking another girl for no apparent reason other than her popularity Holly will be played by Candice Accola and is called out on her internalized misogyny by the love interest in the book That along with the cheeky humor had me thinking from the very first chapter I am going to love this book I know what you re thinking Where could it have gone wrong when you ve got Malese Jow and Candice Accola involved I like SRB and based on reading her blog alone I know she didn t mean to promote a bad boy type as an acceptable love interest It s clear that she s trying to do the opposite of that here by having Kami uestion and dislike their connection half the time but here s my issue Why include that type of love interest at all Why include a love triangle Why spend so much time on romantic melodrama that you don t allow your interesting side characters to develop beyond being perky and loving nappingThis whole story feels like something I ve read before Despite SRB poking fun at these other stories in her writing she chooses to use this Twilight esue set up that sells anyway It almost seems worse somehow At least these other books aren t trying to pretend that they re something superior to what they really are Ash the third useless point of the Kami centered love triangle could have been copied and pasted from any YA book that follows this same formula Possessive Jared could tooYou can t talk about this book without mentioning the humor Bad puns and witty zingers abound At first it reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars and I thought FINALLY a book that isn t taking itself too seriously and is making an effort to be witty Yet somehow this book managed to take itself too seriously and tell too many jokes The situations the characters found themselves in were overly dramatic and ridiculous but they d always manage to tell a joke anyway All of the characters began to feel like walking well bloggers I love bloggers I am a blogger but no one talks like this in real life all of the time The dialogue was awkward and jarring Instead of developing the characters beyond beating us over the head with specific traits Kami loves investigating and she s not like those other mushy YA girls Holly is SO nice and perky Angela LOVES napping and HATES people Ash likes Kami and is surly Jared like Kami and is surly AND destructive jokes would just be told insteadThe last several chapters aside from the last one are the ones I liked at least a little They are when the only real character development happens and things start falling into place Kami seems to stick to her guns a lot I thought her feelings toward her connection with Jared were well written toward the end Jared never gets any interesting or likeable but I learn to accept it Ash is doing things besides staring longingly at Kami and randomly making out with her in hallways Holly and Angela get a thing that isn t just a rehashing of their assigned personality traits The plot is finally doing something relevant I thought we were well on our way to two star ville Then we got to the last chapter I knew to expect a cliffhanger trilogy ending why are we still doing this but I didn t know that it was going to involve the relationship too I mean seriously What was that I said in the comments that it was like SRB added it just to yell RELATIONSHIPS DRAMAZ MUAHAHA and run out of the room to go hang out with Stephenie Meyer and I stand by this assessment I might readjust my rating might when I am feeling less surly and not snarling Seriously what was that about Angela and Jared snarling at the end Did we need to focus on their joint snarling Was that supposed to be a heart warming bonding moment I can t I would say my favorite thing about this novel is Holly with Angela as my second choice Unfortunately Angela got to be a badass at the end but instead of just letting Angela shine subtly SRB also beat us over the head with a chain and made that into an over used joke too While Holly didn t uite get the development that I wanted because clearly time needed to be spent on love triangle and relationship drama I did think she may be one of the few original parts of this book It s nice to see the perky blonde girl given a chance to be the friend and not the guy stealing skank There s a reason I cast her as Candice Accola in my mind but I think TVD does it better TVD isn t the most original idea on the block and it s guilty of a lot of the things that this book is but to make up for it it takes care with its characters except Bonnie and never pretends it s something that it s not Unlike the YA book world TVD also isn t surrounded by hundreds of shows just like it Regardless I liked that SRB explored that hating Holly because she was popular with guys wasn t acceptable and that it wasn t her fault and that it wasn t necessarily what she wanted I liked her relationship with Angela even though I feel like that was another safe swing and a miss on SRB s part It felt like another example of this novel stepping up to the plate to be something different and then not making an effort once it got there to actually let it be something differentI can see why so many of my friends wrote gushing reviews of this book and I m sure others will continue to enjoy it but personally it just rubbed me the wrong way I won t stop reading SRB s stuff in the future because I feel like she has the potential to write great things She seems aware of a lot of the things being done poorly in YA today girl on girl hate lack of homosexual relationships and POC girls instantly falling in love with the bad boy without uestioning their feelings etc I want to give her points for effort for almost stepping away from the pack but she didn t not really and I didn t care about the characters or plot enough to overlook this fact This had all of the potential to be great and as I said before that s probably why it was so disappointingYes this review was mostly an excuse to look at pictures of Malese Jow and Candica Accola Thank you
