I gave it a try as a favor although fantasy is just not my thing, I like to feel a connection to the characters in a real way and I felt nothing for these.
Characters - One dimensional and unlikable. Bella is ordinary but beautiful. Edward is charming but abusive. Nothing new seems to ever come out of anything they have to say or feel, I’m never surprised. I kept waiting for something real, which never came.
Story - It was exactly the same all the way through just in different locations. It didn’t pull me along or move me or make me feel anything. I didn’t care what happened next.
Writing - The writing was the worst part of it all. She used every single adjective that exists, several times. Everything was beautiful and god-like and gorgeous or whatever. The word “murmur” was used so many times I at one point started counting it and that was when I started to enjoy it, just waiting for the next use of the word. Oh and “pursed” because everyone purses their lips.
It’s a good thing I was listening to the audiobook because otherwise I would have taken a red marker to it with all the changes I would have made. Maybe the story could have been sweet, if someone else had written it.
I also need to say I am a hopeless romantic, so that is not the issue.Â Nobody is more of a sap than I am.Â I require regular doses of romance every single day just to survive.Â However, my romance needs substance.Â I’m just sayin
