Superb sequel to an invigorating series This is a third installment in The Morganville Vampires Series and is meant for the young adult audience but it is a great treat for adults as well.
This novel can be read as a stand alone but it is much better to read it in a proper order because each Carolyn Cannot Live Without Books! I have also read this book. Good as a re-read via audiobook, but I'm already sick of the cliffhangers and it's only book 3. The decisions this girl makes drive me bonkers, but I can't stop reading this series.
Actually his ex Tris was my favorite character. I am not a David Leviathan fan after this. I know this was coauthored but I felt traces of him all over the book. The most uncomfortable scene in the book is them getting hot and heavy for like three chapters in a hotel ice room.

They didn't even go through with it. My ears were bleeding in this scene. I had to literally stop, rip my headphones off, and just accept the peace and quiet. I liked the movie cause it was funny and less time of dialogue for the main characters.
I'm sure the movie version will be good, Michael Cera seems to be able to make anything funny, but this book suffered from trying way to hard to be hip and appeal to its young audience. Granted, I'm 11 years removed from legally being able to read Young Adult fiction, but I would have felt condescended to. I agree with a goodreads friend that the overuse of the word "fuck" and "fucking" as an adjective was extremely annoying even for typically potty-mouthed teens.
Something that always bothers I'm sure the movie version will be good, Michael Cera seems to be able to make anything funny, but this book suffered from trying way to hard to be hip and appeal to its young audience. Something that always bothers me is when current teens are portrayed as being into music that they wouldn't actually like, as if there is no modern music made that kids would like; the creators are projecting their own youthful tastes on the characters and it always takes me out of the moment. Anyways, by the time the male author it is cowritten with a woman who does Norah's narration and vice-versa gets past the trying-to-be-cool and goes for some actual insightful exploration of adolescent heartbreak or whatever, its too late to save the book, the book dies.
View all 3 comments. This was my second attempt at reading the book. Make a wild guess. Yes, I still couldn't finish it and this is coming from someone who read through Sarah Dessen's crap three books! I should get a bravery award. The writing is extremely irritating.
The description of the characters' passion for music is also strange. They make it sound like its some harmful addiction rather than t This was my second attempt at reading the book. They make it sound like its some harmful addiction rather than their way of expression. When you write a story, aren't the events supposed to lead to something and have some relevance to the entire plot?
Well this had none. Miss Cohn, I am a teenager. I don't talk like that despite the flexibility of the word "fuck". Yes my emotions are complicated but I have the basic human intelligence to behave rationally. You just created a very unreal stereotype. I love David Levithan's writing.
I did hate this one though. There was no single thing I liked - except, maybe, Tris and Dev. Tris was the main antagonist? Both characters were serious victims of slutshaming - by the main protagonists Nick and Norah. Who were both absolutely awful.
Tris was being treated unfairly throughout the entire book re: Nick couldn't accept her decision to break up and Norah I don't even know what her deal with Tris was. This did make so little sense. I am honestly disgusted by Norah and her attitude. I had to reread the first paragraph in her perspective about 5 times because I simply didn't get it. I still don't know what it means except that she made a hella big deal out of Nick's sexuality - even though she didn't know him yet. And it wasn't even relevant?https://clotaminor.tk

She kept slutshaming Tris throughout the entire book and I just got really bored. Nick was swoon-worthy at the beginning, but he simply didn't make sense after half of the book. I don't get why he liked Norah because she was just awful to him. But no, he liked her instantly. One kiss and it was the ultimate love and his friends she could be "his salvation". It was a trope-galleon. The little finger of a side characters had so much more potential than the two main characters combined.
There were so many cringe-worthy sentences and phrases and words in this book - the girls called each other "bitch" all the time, slutshaming all over the place, unnecessary "thoughtful" paragraphs thrown in between Or that total fetishising did I spell it correctly? Christabel Bielenberg chose a "comfortable chair"; Daniel Baremboin a piano with a mattress. The musical instrument was a winner, with guests, including Sir Ian McKellen, opting for a piano - perhaps unsurprisingly given of the show's guests have been from stage, screen and radio, and from music backgrounds.
Guitars were next, with 57 appearances in the archive. Five castaways chose the trombone and 12 chose the saxophone. James Mason in , wanted bagpipes, to the undoubted consternation of island wildlife. Ever resourceful, guests have increasingly chosen to harness solar power in their attempts to stay sane on the island. Thirty-six chose solar-powered items, the most eye opening of which being the solar-powered vibrator chosen by Cornelia Parker. No doubt the ingeniously simple and effective Desert Island Discs format will continue to provide interesting data for years to come.
What do you think of the castaways' choices? And how different will they look in another 70 years' time? The 70th anniversary edition of Desert Island Discs, featuring Sir David Attenborough in his fourth appearance on the show, will be broadcast on Sunday 29 January.
