2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 3 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eternal Eden (Eden Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This book started off so promisingly. The main character was a strong female (quite different to the saps we get lumped with in other YA fiction). The writing was fine, and the sarcastic banter between the two leads was refreshing, exactly what a teenager wants to read.
Then halfway through it all went tits up.
All of a sudden these two people -practically strangers - were declaring their unending, undying, eternal love for eachother, to the extent that would make anyone who wasn't a thirteen year-old YA dark romance obsessed little girl feel rather sick. The imediacy and ferocity of their love wasn't romantic, or enthralling, it was just plain unhealthy. As a reading experience, it wasn't a smooth transition. They didn't glide into romance poetically, and gracefully as the genre demands. It was like being hit by a truck. The book became PACKED with cliches and some of the wost characterization I've ever witnessed.
Such a shame, because the original plot idea was so promising, and the main characters in the first few chapters were fantastic! One star for the start, two stars for the potential that the author shows. Such a waste of a really good beginning. All this book needs is some heavy duty editing, and I would gladly give this book a second chance.
