Bu diziyi seviyorum. Her biri daha iyi olur ve karakterler gelişmeye devam eder. Bir sonrakini almak için sabırsızlanıyorum
Bu kitabı çok beğendim. Ana fikir ilginç ve oldukça inanılır. Hikayenin anlatıldığı şekilde normalde bana (zaman ileri ve geri atlar) ızgara olur, ama iyi yapıldı ve asla kafam karışmadı. Harika değildi, ama iyiydi. Önerilen.
I plan to read this at my next storytime. I'm not sure that thesamller kds will get the humour but the parents will. I'm really excited to read it to division 1.
Such a fun book! Why are the bunnies disappearing? Go to your library and find out!
I would rate this more in the 2 3/4 star range. I liked it slightly less than I didn't like it. The concept was intriguing, but the story line felt too familiar. I was reading the Kindle version of this book and it came with an interview given by Stephanie Meyer and in the interview she said that the only way The Host was similar to The Twilight Saga is that she came up with them because both were stories she enjoyed telling herself. I literally laughed out loud when I read that. The only thing similar - she must have forgotten what The Twilight Saga was about. Both have a love triangle, both a 'girl' falling in love with a 'monster', and both two 'boys' who think they - and they alone - know what is best for the 'girl'. And, to be completely honest, more than once did I find myself thinking that Wanda and Bella were cut from the same mold. I was never able to forget that I was reading a Stephanie Meyer book. What I did constantly forget was the age of the main characters. I had to remind myself that they were supposed to be in their mid-twenties as they mostly read like teenagers. I would say that I did enjoy the book, but not enough to read it again (the true mark of a good book, in my opinion).
I love books about young people with brain diseases/mental illness/illness/autism; the teenage boy in this book is autistic. This is ostensibly a mystery and I love mysteries also, but there wasn’t really much of a mystery here – the compelling thing to me about this book is the way this young man’s mind works. Many personality traits and behaviors of this character rang so very true, a few somewhat less so. But I really enjoyed his unusual narrative voice. Given the situation of this young man, I was pleasantly surprised because of the many humorous parts there were and I was very amused at times. It was a fun read.
I enjoy manuals on how to do things generally...but this nifty book is about making it when you are travelling light. Now that's useful information.
