I liked Kate, the main character, a lot to start off with as she had lost both of her parents in a tragic accident and so automatically I was very sympathetic towards her. I also felt like I could relate to her in how she was independent and was content with losing herself in a book or visiting the many museums that Paris has to offer, while in contrast her sister, Georgia, was a social butterfly and a party-goer. However, as the book progressed sometimes my sympathy for Kate swayed. To be honest, I just think that she cried way too much and it was getting a bit irritating. Often she would state that she did not like to cry infront of anyone but I think by the end of the book she had cried to almost every character at some point. Also, I felt that she became a bit Bella Swan-esque in the way her life suddenly revolved around her love interest, although to be fair as her parents had both died I think she had more of an excuse to feel sorry for herself!
Vincent, her love interest was also another character I couldn't decide upon. He was very handsome and a rather sexy Frenchman and I liked his light-hearted humour and caring attitude. The only problem with him was that he didn't have a single, little imperfection!Read more ›
"Die For Me" focuses on the life of young heroine, Kate, who has moved to Paris with her older sister Georgia, after losing their parents in an accident. Kate is naturally devastated and is finding it difficult to move on with her life. But after a while she begins to venture out into Paris, even if it's on her own, to the relief of her grandparents. While on one of her many book reading jaunts to her local cafe she meets the mysterious and beautiful Vincent...
I really liked Kate in the first half of the book, and not because she's a total bookworm like me who likes to read in the bath for hours on end, but because she's sweet, intelligent and thoughtful. Her grief of losing her parents is moving and very realistic. Unfortunately after about half way through Kate begins to lose her individuality to become a replica of so many other teenage female protagonists I've read, especially with regards to the choices she makes. The story also travels a well trodden path and Ms Plum opts for safe and predictable rather than fresh and original - a great opportunity lost in my opinion because "Die For Me" started so well.
The absence of teenage angst and bitchy school girls is refreshing, and although Kate does go to school, the story focuses on her life outside the classroom. Of course there are aspects that root it firmly in the YA forum, such as some of Kate's thoughts, feelings and decisions, and the fact that she's 16 years old.Read more ›
Kate eventually gets pushed by Georgia and her 'Mamie' to start going out more, and so begins to visit museums and read outside cafes, in very typical Paris fashion. I loved all the descriptions of the cafes and art galleries etc that Kate visits, they were all done very well, it gave you a really vivid snapshot of Paris, without feeling like Amy Plum was driving home the point that she'd set her book somewhere different, which I liked. Cue Vincent, the love interest. What I liked about this book the most was Kate's reaction to Vincent. It was so realistic. She was obviously attracted to his good looks, but at the same time she was wary enough to not go falling for him in an instant. I loved their sarcastic banter, it was a really great way to show their flirtation and the development of their relationship. In fact, I love the way Amy writes full stop, honestly I think it's fantastic, I just can't put my finger on exactly why, which I think is a good thing.Read more ›
