Hear a lot of good things about this series and decided I better start it! And IÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢m glad that I did because I loved this book! 5/5 stars for me!
The best thing about this book has to be the writing style! ItÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢s just so poetic and lyrical Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?? similar to Lauren Oliver Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?? and it creates such great visual images that are just beautiful! Tahereh Mafi certainly has a unique writing gift.
The plot was this book was pretty fast paced in my opinion and I liked that. There were a few twists in the beginning that actually shocked me but towards the end, I managed to guess the twists but that didnÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢t bother me because I was enjoying reading about them too much! The world building in my opinion wasnÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢t done very well, there was hardly any information about it, but IÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢m not worried the sequels will hopefully shed light on it!
As for the characters, I just loved them! Juliette was just a great heroine in the way her strength built as the novel went on and by the end she was a badass! I feel so much empathy for her because of the live she had lead that sheÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢s found a small place in my heart! Then thereÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢s Adam, who was the perfect love interest; loyal, caring, strong etc and although it was insta-love it didnÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢t bother me all that much because I just love both of them so much! And finally thereÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢s Warner. Someone I just love to hate. And IÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢ll leave it at that! As for the side characters, James was lovable and Kenji is definitely the comedy factor needed for the book!
Overall this was a quick, fast read that I just loved! Cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel!
