Book Description

27 May 2010
Nora's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, she is drawn to him against her better judgement. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and knows more about her than her closest friends.And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of a centuries-old battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and sooner or later, she's going to have to pick sides...

Review

"I've read it myself, and it is absolutely brilliant!" --BellaAndEdward.com, 11th Aug 09

"Well written, lovingly crafted with a savvy protagonista with a love interest so quirky and unpredictable it is going to have the reader with their heart in their mouth the whole way." -- Falcata Times, 31 July 09

"The story is well-paced and I didn't guess what was going on so found myself hooked to discover the truth. I found the most exciting part was the last third of the book and I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it!"
--The Bookbag, 10 Aug 09

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 22 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Firstly, I should confess to not being a teenager being in my early 30s, so I am not, strictly speaking, the intended audience for this book. However, I really enjoy this type of fiction and I am glad that I was persuaded by the reviews, to buy it.

The story is compelling with plenty of mystery and action to keep you interested. I liked the characters and I thought that they were believable and engaging. I read the book very quickly in 2 sittings because I couldn't wait to see where it was all leading.

My only criticisms are: 1) lack of description- I never had a clear picture in my head of where it was all happening. I also don't have any sort of image of what the characters look like. If you asked me now, I could tell you that Nora had wild curly hair, Vee was curvy, Patch had black hair and Jules was tall. That is it. It would have been much easier to really get absorbed in the story if the characters and the setting had been more vividly described. 2) Maybe a little more guidance on the whole nephil/fallen angel history would have been helpful. I know there are a lot of fiction books in this genre and some people might be well-aquainted with it, but if this is your first foray into the genre, you might find it lacking in detail.

Don't let any of that put you off though! It's well-worth reading and I expect I will want to read it again soon. I hope there are going to be follow up books too, because I would like to know more about Nora and Patch's future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice cover, shame about the story 9 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
I read this book in one sitting but not because it was good. I read it in one sitting because I knew that if I put it down I would have no interest in picking it back up.

I was really looking forward to reading this book. Aside from the beautiful cover, the book comes with the tantalising tagline 'A Fallen Angel...A Forbidden Love'. In no way did I feel that this book lived up to what it promised.

The book focuses on sixteen-year-old Nora Grey, a normal girl who finds her life turned upside down when she is partnered in bio lab with the dangerous, sexy anti-hero type boy that no one really knows much about? Sound familiar? Yes, the basic premise of this book could have been copied straight from Stephenie Meyer's 'novels' ( I use this word generously) I did enjoy it far more than Twilight but that's not saying a lot. Though at least in Hush, Hush, Nora does more than sit around moping about her not-quite boyfriend. Credit where credit's due.

I think one of the main problems with this book is that we, the readers, know from the very start what Patch - the archetypal anti-hero - is. It is spelled out for us in no small detail. Therefore it is annoying and frankly quite painful to watch Nora stumbling through three hundred odd pages of the book, trying to work out what Patch is. We all know so to watch her floundering through two-thirds of the book is just annoying. I kept hoping she'd just discover the truth about Patch and get on with the story but she didnt. Instead we get subjected to her embarrassing amateur sleuthing and that gets old very quickly.

Patch is barely even a character. He is painfully undeveloped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 6 Nov 2009
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Nora Grey isn't your typical high school student in the sense that she spends a lot of time on her own and yet concentrates on her studies and has her head on straight. She is that good girl that doesn't want any trouble and, slightly reminding me of Rory from my beloved Gilmore Girls in the "has her sights set on Yale and nothing will stand in her way" attitude (and yes, I know Rory was Harvard-bound, but you get where I'm going). But trouble seems to find her in the form of that mysteriously gorgeous bad boy, Patch.

And Patch...how can I describe Patch without turning into a puddle of mush? Well, he's trouble, plain and simple. But he's that good kind of trouble that just about anyone with the XX chromosome is attracted to. He's got the sarcasm down to an art and there's also the fact there's something about him that's not quite right.

Becca Fitzpatrick has done a beautiful job with not only the characters in HUSH, HUSH, but also the imagery is phenomenal. There are moments when she describes the scenery and it feels as if you are walking through places they frequented. And yet even in what should be the most innocent of events, there seemed to be this undertone that something dangerous was near.

And one thing that makes me over the moon is the fact that every character serves a purpose. There's not all these extra characters thrown in there along the way, with no explanation of why. I like that. The only thing about the entire story that got me was Vee, but just a little. I found Vee to be one of those friends that you have to take care of and keep an eye on like you do a child. A bit reckless and self-absorbed, but she still plays her role.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I REALLY wanted to like this book. After reading Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments trilogy (which i really enjoyed) I was excited that a new book was out following the mythology of angels, the fallen and nephilim. Unfortunately Hush Hush just didn't live up to my hopes.

The pacing of the story is awful, with the first two thirds of the book reiterating how the lead character Nora, and the reader's narrator, really likes this guy Patch..but shouldn't because she senses he's dangerous...but still does; apart from this almost constant repetition little else happens in the plot. After over 200 hundred pages of 'should she, shouldn't she' and 'is this attraction or fear' (both infuriating and boring), the story finally starts to pick up a bit, but not much.

Finally, after all the build up, the entirety of what Patch is and why he is in Nora's life etc spills out in a total of about 4 pages.

What made this so disappointing was that the premise of the story is great, the characters have a lot of potential to develop and the mythology could be explored with a fresh approach, unfortunately none of this happens and on finishing the book i just had the feeling of 'oh, was that it?'.
The author barely scratched the surface of any depth that could have made this book good and instead rambled on incessantly about whether or not Nora does in fact fancy or fear the bloke only ever described as being dark, with dark eyes, wearing dark jeans and dark boots (and an occasionally changing t-shirt).

For other fans of YA fantasy/romance who are craving a bit of supernatural escapism, buy the Cassandra Clare trilogy, Kristen Cashore's 'Graceling' and 'Fire' duo or Maggie Stiefvater's 'Shiver' instead.
