Here’s the thing. I absolutely love this series, I think that Showalter is a great writer and she makes each book the same, weaving them effetely into the next, and next, and yet she manages to stay individual and unique with each of her characters as they fall in love.
And yet....even before this book started I was over it.
It’s not the series that I’m over; I honestly can’t wait for the next book to come out. I can’t wait for William’s story either (though it might turn to much into the whys of this book, so...) but I’m so over Paris’ story that’s it’s not funny and it makes the fact that I’m reading it seemed a forced event and I’m just not enjoying it as much as reading previous in the series.
It needs to be said. It took way to love for this book to come about, or maybe there was just too much information from previous books that made it seem as if it was taking forever. I actually really like the link in couples, or even the next male(female) in the book to have a heavy hang in previous ones, it makes getting their books and seeing deeper into their lives something....more. But this one. In Paris’ case I just has this....well, it’s bores me. Everything about Paris bores me. Just having the book in my hands bores me. I’m over it.
So bear that in mind while I tell you all the things I thought about this book. It might let you see why things swung this way for me when they probably wouldn’t for you.
So I need to clarify, mostly because I wrote the top before I decided on a different way of reading this book—which really means, it wasn’t fully, (like word for word, page for page), really people, go somewhere else and see what they have to say, I’m just so bored of this book, long before it came out.
Really, I rolled my eyes and sighed a finally, with no real care in it at all
It’s a point I need to clarify, because it was so hard to read.
* It’s a great book though, kinda an end to a beginning.
I read about two chapters. Then wrote the thing above, I know a little ahead of myself but it’s what it came out after that short time. then I skip threw to page 190...something, which seemed to be around the time Paris and Sienna meet up, I had a feeling it was the first time, but didn’t care enough to see. I read from there, for about a couple of chapters, got over it, though it was mostly about sex, and flipped it to the end, read that—awesome, that, really—the wanted to know more about Kane...what the fuck was going on with Kane? And so I flipped it back, and read, though it wasn’t it all.
You know what I came up with?! I WANT KANE’S STORY, man that’s got an interesting start to it, I’m just hoping it’s gonna be the next one—though I’ve wouldn’t mind Toxin and Cries.... but I really want to know Kane’s he’s been my fav from the beginning, really, funny shit happens to him all the time.
Anyway, the story pretty much went the way I thought it would, there was nothing...new about either characters.
though, unlike the other books, the other characters that piped in weren’t as detailed as they had been for Paris, so that was a plus, though there were certain things that were a little odd, and I didn’t quite understand, but I’m not sure if that was because it was at the beginning of the story, or subtext I should have picked up and only had a little, how knows.
It was good, interesting in a way—at least one part—that went in a direction I thought it wouldn’t, but it makes sense, I just think that there story would have had a better tick...hang on, wait, it could still turn that way, and if it does—great story.
So I did a crap ass job at reading and reviewing this book, but I just can’t read something that bores me, it doesn’t work well for the book I do it with and I just had no care of either character anymore, which, as you can tell, but thing for me.
Though it was actually a good book, up with all her other ones, the parts I read where great and gripping, just not quite enough.
