Je lis ce livre en ce moment, et actuellement à mi-chemin, c'est certainement le pire livre de la série. J'ai vraiment apprécié les autres livres et les ai lus très rapidement, mais cela étant dit, ce livre a une histoire de détritus et de confusion, donc je n'ai pas fait de progrès rapides dans le livre. Je déteste tout "Zoé morte et dans l'autre monde" et tous les chapitres sur la lumière et les ténèbres et les deux taureaux. Je ne suis pas intéressé par le personnage de Stark et comment il essaie de se rendre dans l'autre monde, c'est déroutant et certainement pas excitant. Cependant, mon ami a dit que l'histoire s'améliore vers la fin et prend son rythme, mais d'ici là, je devrai serrer les dents et me forcer à terminer les livres.
This is such a poorly written book. The only reason I keep reading it is to help me fall asleep at night. There is no depth to any of the characters. Sure, there's a bit of conflict between the mother and one of the daughters, but it's on the surface. There is entirely too much conversation going on. We don't get into anyone's head about how they're really feeling or thinking. It's all just shallow talk. I had high hopes for it because I thought the storyline was intriguing, but I'm very disappointed in the high school-like writing. Well, I stopped midway through, read the very end and will be making this a donation to the local library. On a personal note, my mother-in-law was unconscious for a week before dying on Christmas Eve and all the things the characters talked about were so incredibly unrealistic and unbelievable. Time stops when someone is dying and NOTHING else matters. All you want is for that person to wake up, but life as you know it stops. So for Delinksy to write about these nonsensical conversations is totally ridiculous. I won't be picking up another one of her books again.
I'm assuming that this author has a distinct style of writing that is used in all of her novels, if you like her previous works, you will like this one. If not, this book has the plot set out in the dustjacket preview. The book itself seemed to move very very slowly to me, because the plot was told to you in the beginning. I just wanted the author to get to the point. It shouldn't have taken 400 pages to do that, or, she should have done a lot more with twists, and intrigue to make the middle of the book more worth it.
