My Thoughts

This was a pretty interesting installment to the series. It had a lot of excitement in every page, it’s crazy! The plot definitely picks up a lot more in this installment, as expected and as always, Tahereh Mafi’s writing is just FABULOUS! She didn’t use a bajillion metaphors in this book when comparing it to the first so that reduced a couple of aca-awkward lines which was a good thing. Most importantly, I really expected more of the character development to go on in this book and that is exactly what I got, in terms of world building however, not exactly up to my tastes…yet.

This book had really, really made me fall in love with it’s characters. Seriously!!! I love the direction that Tahereh Mafi has taken a lot of these characters. They mess with my feels in every page. My favorite character thus far would have to be ehm, Warner. Why? Because he’s just so- you must read the series in order for you to understand. He gets a lot of exposure in this book so I really got to know him well 😉 As you can probably tell, I’m definitely Team Warner haha! Sorry Adam! I do expect to see more of Warner in the next, and FINAL installment to the trilogy.

When it comes to the Juliette character, I thought that she was doing pretty well as a character in the beginning (being as strong as she could etc.). But I feel that as the book continued on, she started to regress, which really bummed me out. I really wanted her to turn out to be one of those strong heroines. I still have hopes for her in the next book 😀

Overall, this book is absolutely ah-mazing! It’s such a fun ride and definitely kept me at the edge of my seat. The only problem that I had with this book was the world building. I still have a difficult time creating a clear picture of what this world looks like through the words of the author. I still do have hope that it will improve in the third book.  Whoot-whoot! Off to the next book!
