  Couldn't put it down

| | See all Bubbles1984's reviews (10)

I was really suprised how much I liked this book. It is totally different to the Twilight series and I became totally addicted. Couldn't put it down. The idea is really interesting and I like the way she writes this. It comes across as far more aimed at adults than the rest of her books. Highly recommend!

Book arrived very quickly after ordering, I'm currently reading it and very pleased with it so far! Gripping sci-fi-esque storyline with a love story entwined. Lovely (:

Wow, there aren't any good enough words to describe this book! I read it in three days, I couldn't put it down from the first page till the last, and when I finished it, I just wanted more! It's like when a hungry person is being fed, he would just want more! It's such an original story, the kind that it's almost impossible to guess what will happen next, not to mention that it made me very emotional. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It is a MUST have....and I think it's as good as the whole Twilight Saga....if not better! Can't wait for the sequel The Soul and also the Movie. The way Stephenie Meyer writes... she just seems to drag me to her world, know where my emotional switch is and manipulate it with just words...she's impeccable!

i bought this book when id finished the twilight books, hoping for something as captivating. At first, i couldnt get into it, but as i read on and on i was hooked. This book is definately as good as the twilight saga, i enjoyed it so much, only a month later and im reading it again.

  Not great

This book took incredibly long to get into, I think it was at around the 300th page that this book actually got interesting but i'm stubborn and refuse to not finish a book! I'm glad I didn't stop reading it because it did actually get quite good in the second half. I found the ending slightly disappointing however as I did expect more. Sadly won't be recommending this to anyone.

  Fantastic Read

Stephanie Meyer's is truly an exceptional writer. I could not put down any of the Twilight books and was given this book to read as it was the same quality as twilight but geared for adults. As the other reviewers have said I was told it took a wee bit to get into, which i agree with, but once you get over this, (even though I didnt think it took very long) I could not put the book down. Stephanie Meyers does not write for the teenage girls only, this is truly an adult book with lots of twists and turns. Stephanie's imagination and the way she describes details is fantastic, you actually feel that you are there.

I recommend this book 100%, you will not be disappointed.

after reading the twilight saga i thought i would give this book a try..the first few chapters were a bit slow and i wasnt sure but keep reading as this is truly a great story.i dont normally like alien books but this book had me gripped and i could not put it down.looking forward to this hitting the big screens to see who they cast as melanie, jared jamie etc.i hope there is a follow up to this story as it was so good.it is totally different to twilight but just as good..stephenie meyer is truly a great author.
